All moms work. But those executive-type moms must really lose their minds some days. Leaking breastmilk in the boardroom can’t be fun. Nor can stopping by the grocery store during rush hour to grab something–anything–to make for a home-cooked family meal.
So when these hard working mamas need a laugh, they turn to Twitter. And, why not? It’s perfectly acceptable to take out your frustrations on social media. Definitely not so much on your sweet preschooler who insists on trying to “read” to you at bedtime.
If you’re needing to know if it’s all worth it, then scroll through these 10 tweets that will tell you, “It’s all going to be okay.” Because, it will be.
1. The fatigue is real.
I am so tired I can fall asleep on the toilet right now.
RT if you’ve been there. #workingmom

2. What the kid said.
Just about finishes with midnight shift 7 of 7. I just got a phone call from my 5 yo:
5: Where are you, mom?!
Me: I'm at work.
5: Tell your boss it's stupid you have to work.
Me: Sure, I'll let him know you said so…

3. Triple tasking.
At home with sick kids & trying to get on with some work. Background noises on dictation = vomiting children & squeaking guinea pigs… #workingmother

7. Wrapping is overrated.
My child is worried that there are no presents under the tree. What he doesn’t know is the #amazon fairy has filled an entire room with unwrapped presents. Life has been crazy, ain’t nobody got time to wrap ? #workingmother pic.twitter.com/H8XubZVqWL

8. You can do it!
#workingmother is getting off a 14-hour flight at 3pm, running to catch the earlier express train, changing to the local train, a taxi, dumping suitcase and backpack at the front door, then running to daycare to pick your son up at 5pm.

10. You’re luminous, mama.

Whatever your circumstances–married or not, working downtown or in your home, rich or poor–being a mom means you’re always working, caring, loving, playing and boo-boo kissing. The truth is parenting is hard, but the rewards are worth all the hassles, late nights and embarrasing stains on your blouse.
And, whenever you need a laugh or a virtual hug, Mom Twitter has your back. You don’t even have to clean poop off it either.
