Mum life is a beautiful thing. It’s also hectic, stressful, exhausting and sometimes worthy of tears. But whether those are tears of joy or anguish, we can all appreciate some comic relief. Memes are great, but when a picture doesn’t say it all, usually a GIF can. With or without subtitles, these soundless moving images bring humour, compassion and a sense of camaraderie. The best parenting GIFS help remind us that no matter what the daily struggles, we’re all in this together and can relate to each other’s varied mummy moments. And that from pregnancy to the school gate, toddler tantrums to teen eye-rolls, we mums need and deserve a good laugh from time to time.
No one had better get between a preggo and her fro yo, just saying.
