20+ Moms Who Are Just Trying Their Best, So Cut Them Some F**king Slack

Every woman knows that being a mother is often times a full-time job.

I, myself, am not a mom, but my sister has two kids under the age of 3-years-old, and I see first hand how difficult it can be to balance raising children and keeping your sanity. When they say “mommy brain,” they really do mean it. I’ve seen moms make some hilarious “whoopsie” mistakes, but hey–they’re raising human beings, give them a damn break will ya? Next time you see a mom who’s riding the struggle bus, let’s all agree to not judge them and instead, think about how hard it is to do 45 things at once (because that’s literally what you do when you’re a mother, trust me).
