I know this may sound strange, but Mother's Day is one of my favorite holidays. Though I'm not a mom, I love having a designated day to show my mom appreciation for all she's ever done for me. I haven't always been the easiest child to deal with, but because my mom has been so great, she's embraced every side of me. That's why when I find funny Mother's Day cards that touch on a situation we've been through together, I have to get them for her.
Like many other mother-daughter duos, my mom and I have gone through hell and back over the years. Despite my selfish ways and teenage drama, my mom remained loving and supportive towards me — even if I didn't see it that way. Now that I'm older and we're able to see those issues as growing pains, it's definitely OK to share a laugh or two about them. Honestly, I secretly think handing my mom a funny card about our past is a subtle way of my apologizing and her laughing with me is her way of accepting it. Whether that's how she sees it or not, the laughs we share are still totally worth it.
So, if you need a funny card to hand out to your mom this Mother's Day, try giving these 17 a look to see if they fit her personality.
