Working moms are incredible superheroes. They have this otherworldly strength that comes from who-knows-where. Whether moms work from home or out of an office, they are completing a full-time job on top of another full-time job. Because being a mom is already a full-time job. And even though it is 2018 and partners should equally contribute to the child-rearing, we all know that overall, moms still end up with the bulk of the work and the emotional labor, whether it is right or not. They do so whether they are busy working a whole other job or not!
There seems to be a stigma within the mom world about moms who work. But it is time to lay that silliness to rest. Working moms are amazing beings who dedicate time to their families, working nonstop to provide for their kids. That being said, working moms become exhausted, dealing with hilariously tough problems, some of which you have to laugh at because if you don't laugh, you cry. And crying is not as fun!
Moms don't get to retire.They hustle and support their families their whole lives. Here are some hilarious working moms who are doing the best they can with a smile on their faces.

Taking a business trip.Kids have no concept of the idea that when you are not with them, you're not always thinking about them, 100 percent of the time. They think you spent your whole business trip looking out for gifts for them.
