Seriously, how did we ever survive without GIFs and memes to describe our emotions? And if you're a new mom, you have a lot of emotions happening right now. I get it, believe me. Having been there (twice), I can admit to a full range of feelings on any given moment during the early days of motherhood. You are so happy, overwhelmed, scared, worried, empowered and most certainly exhausted. Whoever said "nothing prepares you for motherhood" was 100 percent correct. That's why these GIFs that perfectly describe being a new mom are so hilarious (and did I mention having a sense of humor is key?).
The comic relief I get out of seeing a perfectly accurate GIF, especially as it relates to motherhood, makes me so happy. It also reminds me that it is okay to laugh at myself and this crazy world of parenting, both its trials and its joys. Whether it is sleepless nights or mom's night out (yay!), there's a GIF out there that every mama will find relatable at some point in her journey. And it's all about finding other moms who can relate to your struggle, right? Here are some of my favorites... break out the popcorn and wine!
