We hear a lot about touching moments and all the warm and fuzzies from motherhood – but what about how much moms can make us laugh?
Ahead of Mother’s Day, we’re zeroing in on our favourite hilarious moments to get you into the mom-appreciation mode for all those underrated ways moms can make us smile.
See how many of these pop culture mom moments you can relate to:
Acts of bravery are just part of the job…
Whether you’re relating to Tina Fey or her brave sister Maura Tierney, we’ll never forget this hilarious (and terrifying??) moment from Baby Mama. And really – the question remains!
Important advice is your top priority
AKA: When your mom doesn’t care if you’re trying to be cool. (The whistle is also on point.)
Frances McDormand nails it as a nervous but caring mom in 1999’s Almost Famous who always has her kids’ best interests at heart, and manages to make us laugh with her most passionate advice (her speeches throughout are pretty amazing too.)
Or the ~Poehler~ opposite
See what we did there? Okay, so maybe you’re not looking to relate to this one so much, but hey, Amy Poehler is hilarious as that mom that’s maybe trying a little too hard in this instant-classic moment from Mean Girls.
Telling it like it is
The balance of touching and hilarious is hard to pull off but somehow Roseanne gets it done. The most especially relatable moment: “Which one of the motherly speeches am I supposed to give here?” 😂
That moment you finally get some alone time as a mom…
Lucille Bluth is all of us when we realize that there’s nobody home and it’s time to l e t l o o s e. 👌
And of course, that much-needed ability to lay down the law:
Aunt Viv has no time for bad ideas and lets everyone around know she means business. Even when you’re getting the hard line, it’s impossible not to be totally impressed with her ability to shut it down.
Now that you’re done reading this…
^^The best possible mom advice of all? YES. 👌
