It's hard to believe Mother's Day is here again, and it's especially hard for me to believe it's my second one. Before, Mother's Day was a day to take my mom out to lunch and give her a card, but now I'm so excited to have my own little one celebrate me and to share a special day together. Social media also makes this day super fun because I love reading everyone's posts about their mom and laughing and crying at all the Mother's Day memes.

I mean, laughing and crying pretty much embodies all of motherhood, right? Like yesterday when I was looking for the remote. I was on my hands and knees, ducking to look under the couch when I felt a toddler butt land on my back. Yes, my child sat on me while I was trying to find the remote to make Sesame Street come back on for her. If that doesn't tell you everything you need to know about motherhood, nothing will.

Because it's a hard job, but it's also hilarious. And sometimes, the hilarity comes from it being hard. You have to keep your cool somehow, right? Even if it means laughing through the pain of stepping on a LEGO. (Just kidding. That sh*t is torture.) That's why memes are the perfect way to celebrate Mother's Day. They'll make you laugh, they'll make you cry, and they'll remind you why you're doing this motherhood thing anyway. So in honor of Mother's Day, here are 19 perfect memes that embody everything about the day and celebrate motherhood perfectly.
