17 Tweets that hilariously capture the reality of Mother’s Day


Ahh, Mother’s Day.

A day of rest and relaxation. A day where the sun shines a little bit brighter. A day where you sleep in ‘til late afternoon and wake to the sound of a birds’ chorus, only to be lovingly served breakfast in bed with a tea-or-coffee of your preference.

*Record scratch* Yeah, right.

Any actual mother knows the expectation and reality of Mother’s Day are two very different things.

And while we appreciate our family’s best efforts, we all know this day isn’t quite as tranquil as a Hallmark verse makes it out to be.

But hey, that doesn’t stop us from getting a giggle out of it. Here are our favourite tweets that hilariously capture the reality of Mother’s Day.
