If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a GIF should be worth a bottle of wine or a pint of ice cream or whatever you use to destress at the end of the day.

  1. I am a grandmother of 10 and even I need a break from them when they come over………………I love when they come to visit but after awhile I am glad to see them leave……………

  2. Oh, all the emotions because I can relate to everyone of these GIFs! Thanks for the laughs! I have too little girls that are the greatest in the world, but sometimes this mama needs a night out… though I am quite exhausted. Haha!

    1. Right?! Haha! I feel like I’m a total mess now when I finally get the chance to go out, but it’s all in good fun.

  3. These gifs are completely accurate. As a mom I experience at least one on any given day. Thanks for the belly laugh! I needed it!

    1. I was a nanny for almost a decade before my oldest was born, and it’s crazy how many really do apply!

    2. Do you think being a nanny for so long prepared you better for being a mom? I was just talking to my friends about how even there are sooo many parenting books and such, kids don’t really come with an instruction book because they are all so different, but nannying experience is close-ish to parenting experience!
