If you aren’t loving GIF culture, are you really even living? GIFs have become a way to add context to a conversation and convey emotion, sarcasm, and humor through text. My husband and I will often have entire conversations entirely through GIFs. We even use them frequently in the community chat rooms at my full-time job. These 10 GIFs about life for working moms will have you laughing, nodding along, and possibly even shouting YAASSS out loud.
I take no responsibility for the consequences of this.
Watch Me Flex
There are just some days when working moms feel like we have it all together. The whole morning goes smoothly, everyone is out the door on time, and you get mad props at work. Yeah, momma.
Then There are THOSE Days
You know them well. They are the days when everything that can go wrong has, and when you finally breath a sigh of relief at being only slightly late, someone has taken off their shoes… again.
Leaving Your Kids Isn’t Always Hard
Sometimes there is absolutely no guilt about being a working mom outside the home and leaving the kids. “Heeeyyyy, so the baby is teething, and the older kids just wouldn’t go to sleep last night, so everyone is just a little cranky today. Byyeeee…”
But When Leaving is Hard
It can be really hard.
When You Get To Work
When you finally get to work and see all the other badass working moms rocking it out. YES. Solidarity supermoms.
The Evening Routine
Evenings when you work all day are pure insanity. Everyone needs to eat, bathe, and get ready for bed at the same time, and all you want to do is flop onto the bed and fall blissfully asleep. Nope. Not gonna happen.
Working Moms Say PTA What?
I don’t know about you, but my daughters’ school assumes every working mom has a flexible schedule, endless time off, or the mom stays at home with the kids. While we salute you and your boss if you do, life can be trickier if that’s not the case. Um, can we reschedule to not 8 am in the morning?
It’s All Excitement When You’re Back from Work
This level of excitement is reserved for dogs and parents only. It’s the homecoming of your lifetime… because you’ve been gone for 100 years, mom.
And Sometimes You Come Home to This
Yup. Some days you come to home to just unrestrained excitement. Then there are the days when you come home to your kid literally climbing the walls.
But Every So Often This Happens
Every so often you come home, and your kids are peaceful, quiet, and lean into you like you’re the only thing that matters in the whole wide world.
