Many women look forward to the joys of motherhood well before they have children. Of course, being a mother isn’t just rainbows and butterflies. It can also make even the most devoted mom want to pull her hair out–as some reveal on Twitter

But, that’s the duality of life – it’s a constant rollercoaster ride complete with laughter, tears, love, and heartache. No matter what motherhood brings, a mom sticks by her children for the whole journey. Even in the hard times, you can’t take life too seriously.

That’s why some moms have found it cathartic to joke about their parenting experiences on Twitter. Below, we’ll share some tweets from mothers who tell the raw, hysterical truth about motherhood.

15 Glimpses Into Motherhood You’ll Only Find on Twitter

1. At least the terrible two’s only last a couple of years! But during that time, it feels like an eternity.

Schedule activities around your child’s naps to survive this trying time in motherhood. That way, they won’t throw a tantrum in a grocery store because they feel tired or irritable. Also, please do your best to remain calm when they get upset. Talk them through situations that frustrate them and provide clear boundaries. You’ve got this!

2. Getting kids to eat fruits and vegetables is pretty tricky. We all know that, if given a choice, most children would happily eat pizza and tacos for the rest of their lives.

Try to incorporate healthy foods into meals they already enjoy. For instance, serve tacos with more veggies or make a homemade pizza with simple ingredients.

3. But honestly, the advice above is easier said than done. Once kids try processed foods won’t feel as thrilled about more bland foods. Even adults have difficulty choosing an apple over a bag of chips!

Motherhood involves compromise, so if you want your kids to eat healthier, serve them fruits and veggies first. Once they’ve finished, then they can have the “yummier” foods.

4. Kids have no filter and will do almost anything to get your attention. When you enter motherhood, you must prepare for the most embarrassing yet hilarious situations you can imagine.

5. Most moms know that it never seems to end once their kids start telling a story. But luckily, thinking burns about 320 calories a day, so listening to your child can make you healthier!

6. Motherhood provides plenty of reasons to cherish your children. But every mom still needs a break at some point!

7. Most parents know that too much screen time can negatively impact their children. But being locked inside during the pandemic didn’t provide many other options.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends babies and toddlers 0-2 years old only use technology for video chatting. Children ages two to five should consume one hour or less of high-quality media daily.

Finally, older children and teenagers should have digital device limits of two hours or less daily. Most children greatly exceed this limit, but stricter rules and parental involvement can help curb their use.

8. Motherhood does seem like a never-ending rollercoaster ride sometimes. Even though raising kids can be exhausting, at least they keep life interesting!

9. Every mother with multiple children knows this struggle. Even having one child is a handful!

Most moms appreciate any moment of solitude they can get. Setting aside time for yourself each day is essential if you have children. Once you put the kids to bed, do something that relaxes you and puts your mind at ease. Perhaps that means taking a warm bath, reading a book, or listening to calming music. Everyone needs self-care, but motherhood demands it on a whole different level.

10. Anything that suddenly makes noise doesn’t bode well for a good night’s rest. Whoever invented the Furby, we’re looking at you here.

Toys that turn on by themselves wake up the whole household. As a parent, there’s nothing worse than attempting to put your children back to sleep at 3 AM.

11. As moms already know, motherhood involves ample patience and sacrifice. That includes eating a bagel with the best seasonings licked off, thanks to your kids.

12. Moms go to extreme lengths to ensure their kids stay asleep the whole night. No one wants to go through the entire bedtime routine again in the middle of the night!

13. Parents take out their frustration in creative ways sometimes. But in this mom’s defense, stepping on a children’s toy is painful!

14. Moms support one another however they can, especially if it means avoiding their child’s temper tantrums!

Taking your kid to the park offers them an excellent opportunity to burn extra energy. When it’s time to leave, though, they usually put up a good fight. Try this strategy next time you see other moms around!

15. You haven’t truly experienced motherhood if you had no idea what you were doing and just decided to wing it.
