Being a mom can be one of life’s greatest joys, there’s no doubt about that. It is also, in other respects, one of the most ridiculous experiences you will ever go through, one that no one else seems to really get unless they’ve been there.

Thank god for funny Twitter moms, who understand exactly how it is when you’ve been asked “why?” for the hundredth time, stepped on your fifth lego today, and found yet another stain on your shirt whose origin you just can’t identify. Through the ups and downs, they’re right there with you, tweeting it just like it is, and telling about the good, the bad, the ugly, and always hilarious aspects about raising a kid. To read their tweets is to feel like you’re a part of a whole group of girlfriends going through motherhood with you, ones who always have sarcastic, wry observations to impart and take the time to record every laugh-out-loud, I-can’t-believe-that-just-happened moment throughout the ride.
