“Become a mum” they said, “it’ll be fun”, they said. For many, being a mum is one of the most joyful things in the world, but motherhood comes with some very real challenges, too.
Sometimes, the best way to get through those sticky (perhaps literally) situations is to share them with people who understand, so you can laugh them off together – that’s what Mum Twitter is for! We’ve been looking at some of the tweets mums have been sharing about what their kids get up to and they are hilarious.
Here are 15 of the funniest tweets, written by mums to brighten your day and put a smile on your face in between nappy changes:
1) We’ve all been there…
Just found poo on my arm #mumlife

2) Anybody got any earplugs?
Asked to switch seats on the plane because I was sitting next to a crying baby. Apparently, that’s not allowed if the baby is yours.

3) Lifting a small child counts as a workout; look it up.
My daughter put on a princess dress and asked if I had any “play pretend” outfits so I put on workout clothes.

4) Patience is a virtue and it can be VERY hard to find.
I want my toddler to be independent but I also want this banana peeled before I die.

5) Honey, did you hear something?
It’s funny how different parents are with each child. First child, second child, third child. I just heard this kid shout “Hail Satan!” but he was the youngest of five, and the parents didn’t even notice.

6) Yep, sorry, not going to happen.
My Obgyn suggested I cut carbs to maintain a healthier pregnancy weight.
Frankly, I’d rather cut the Obgyn.

7) Hi, excuse me, how do I remove this cling-on from my head, please?
Me: Mommy just needs a little space right now.
Child [perched on top of my head]: Why?
— Lurkin’ Mom (@LurkAtHomeMom) May 20, 2019
8) You learn to pick your battles…
Go ahead, try to argue with a toddler about why they can’t wear fairy wings in their car seat. I dare you. #toddlerlife #momlife

9) One gallon of coffee, please!
My boyfriend: Oh babe you forgot to wash your mascara raccoon eyes after your shower
Me: No…… I just haven’t slept in 3 months thanks!#newmomlife

10) Let’s be honest, you’d probably still hear them asking “Why, mummy?!” across continents.
Summer vacation would probably be a little more relaxing if these kids were vacationing somewhere else.

11) I created life inside my belly, what’s your excuse?
“You’re prettier than I remember, you were SO FAT the last time I saw you!”
TY Uncle Bob, I was 8months pregnant. *spits in his pumpkin pie
— KungPow Turkey (@MacAnnabella) October 14, 2013
12) You must be confused; this is MY jar of peanut butter!
If you eat a pregnant girls food, you’re required to have the baby for her
— Moe (@_Mo_lee_) August 19, 2014
13) Morning sickness, swollen feet, constant fatigue – what’s not to love?
The next woman that tells me how much they loved being pregnant is getting throat punched. #pregnancysucks
— Michaele Mix (@avamom2015) October 20, 2018
14) Don’t be fooled by those cute little baby feet.
If you have an easy firstborn child, don’t feel good about yourself. It’s a trick from Mother Nature so you, fueled by false confidence, reproduce again. Your second will be a no-limit soldier who likes to slap and doesn’t sleep.

15) It’s even more difficult than building Ikea furniture – give us a break!
H- Why are you so tired?
Me- I AM ASSEMBLING A PERSON AND THERE ARE A LOT OF LITTLE PIECES!!
