It’s true, being a mom is a hard job. You really don’t know the full extent of what you are getting yourself into until that first little bundle of joy is laying in your arms. The moment you have to make fast decisions without having a second to think it through put this job into perspective. Remember when you thought taking a nap was going to be a breeze? What about that moment when you plan a craft day and you can not fathom anything going wrong? Moms have crazy lives and that means we sometimes accidentally do crazy things.

1.) How about a little slip of the finger or in some cases the dreaded auto correct re-writes your text. Moms are in a hurry all the time. That means we rarely double check our texting skills before we hit send. Here is a hilarious example of mom texting gone wrong:

Mom: Your great aunt just passed away. LOL
Son: Why is that funny?
Mom: It’s not funny David.
Son: LOL means Laughing out loud mom.
Mom: OHMGSH I sent that to everyone, I thought it meant Lots of Love.
