Moms Who Are Having a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day | 22 Words

We all know that moms are some of the most important people in the world. Being a mom is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding, fulfilling, and essential jobs a human can have.

There are definitely days that being a mom is the best, most fun job ever. But, of course, it's not always like that.

Just like the rest of us, moms can sometimes have bad days. And sometimes they have really bad days. And sometimes they have terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days. That's just the way life works sometimes.

On the bright side, moms often have a great sense of humor when they make a mistake and aren't afraid to laugh at themselves. Those are the moms we're dealing with today. They may have failed — big time — but they're still pretty darn amazing. Still, they've definitely earned an extra glass of wine and no arguing about bedtime tonight.

That's not toothpaste...

Whoever decided to make diaper cream look like toothpaste and store it in a toothpaste-like tube was obviously not thinking too clearly.


Hey, don't be too hard on yourself! It's not like he needs that card for anything important like getting a job or a license...

Book laundering.

Ohhhh man. That's gonna take a while to clean up. May the Mom Force be with you.

Cool shirt!

Hey, if your kid can't handle that you're cool enough to pull off a weed shirt, then he's the one with the problem. I say rock that outfit!

That's a lot of bubbles!

When you consider the fact that moms are basically always multitasking, it's kind of amazing that things like this don't happen more often.

Cool sword!

Cool balloon sword that definitely looks just like a sword and like nothing else at all! Nope. Nothing.

The footprints were a giveaway.

OK, this is obviously a huge bummer and I'm sorry that you lost all that product... But those footprints are kind of the cutest thing in the world.

Wrong soap!

Today I learned that all soaps are not created equal. I'm glad I didn't have to learn this the hard way.

Playdough or placenta?

I am actually not convinced this isn't just straight-up a picture of someone's actual placenta. It's that convincing.

Cool capris!

If you ask me, I'd say you should take advantage of this fact in whatever way allows you to put off doing laundry longer. It's a happy coincidence!

Jesus in the trash.

And just like that, he rose again. See? It's an object lesson.

5 months! And 6 months, 7 months, and 8 months.

I think parents put way too much pressure on themselves to take these monthly pictures these days. We get it. Your kid is getting older. You don't have to prove it.

Forgot to check the bag.

Just remember, if your kid gets suspended, that means they have to stay home. With you. All day.


I'm so curious as to how this happened. Did they put the Barbie in the oven? Was the cake just hot enough to melt the doll? I need answers.

Most important meal of the day.

What, you don't pour coffee into your baby's cereal? How else are they supposed to be ready for a productive day?

Bye-bye breakfast.

Everyone wants to start their day by scraping cemented oatmeal out of their microwave, right?

This sandwich has seen better days.

Oh no! Poor kid had a moldy sandwich in their lunch! Honestly, this is exactly the kind of mistake I would make. Luckily, the teachers were there to help out. It takes a village!


Parents always say that it doesn't take long to become desensitized to all the bodily fluids your kids produce. Still, I'm guessing this was pretty unpleasant.

Forgot a step!

Hey, you got the makeup on your face. That's something! Who cares if you forgot to blend it in?

Check those pockets!

I'm honestly just impressed that kid was able to fit all those things in their pockets. They're going to go far in life.

It's a sword!

Hey, maybe we should stop making sword-shaped things for kids. Just an idea.


I'm going to pretend this was done by the same kid who wrote the note about not having any food in the house.
