Laura Mazza shares what we all really think about Mother’s Day but never actually say out loud.

“Mother’s Day, a day to celebrate involuntarily giving up sleep after that pee stick came up positive.

  1. Giving up wine for 9 or so months… (But taking it up again just as fast).
  2. To celebrate cleaning someone’s ass crack and waiting patiently to wipe someone’s butt on the toilet after they finish pooping.
  3. To celebrate getting a glass of water for someone at 3am and feeding someone milk for the 4th time at night.
  4. A day to celebrate the days of shovelling food into our mouths quickly at restaurants because we cannot bare a boredom tantrum.
  5. It’s a day for the women who pee when we cough or laugh too hard.
  6. Who have stretch marks, scars on our bellies, broken vag’s that don’t look the same and who were too afraid and couldn’t poop right for 6 months straight.
  7. Who no longer stand straight but sway from side to side for no reason.
  8. A day…where a true gift is a sleep-in and a 10 minute shower.
  9. Where one hour by ourselves would be better than diamonds.
  10. Where a painting that looks like a couple of blobs and says “To Mum” makes you cry and feel like the luckiest girl in the world and a mug with their picture on becomes the best mug to drink out of (even if you have 40).
  11. A day to celebrate trying hard to be fearless but knowing every day you’re scared shitless trying to make their life a perfect and safe one.
  12. A day that recognises that even though our lives turned upside down the day our babies entered our lives, it was a day we learned to love. And really love…
  13. A day to celebrate the day we discovered we would never be alone, ever… ???? but knowing that makes our heart swell.

Mother’s Day, a day to celebrate someone who puts their happiness over her own, who tries to do the right thing even if she doesn’t know what that is, who succeeds every day without knowing, who loves another, more than she loves herself. Who lost her mind… but found her soul.”

Happy Mother’s Day! xx

  • So very true


  • A day where the best way to celebrate it is by going out to lunch with a bunch of girlfriends and leaving the kids at home!


  • Both hilarious and truly beautiful


  • Right in the feels


  • Very true, there are lots of highs and lows in being a mum


  • These points are so true. My boys, and now also my grandchildren, are the centre of my universe. I’ve been so blessed


  • This is so very accurate and on point- very well worded


  • A very interesting analysis of celebrating the day. I’ve never really given it much thought. Or at least not as in-depth as the poster has.


  • a good read


  • Thank you for the chuckle, loved it!


  • Hahaha… as my son is now older I encourage him to celebrate me by taking charge of all meals for the day. I want him to see what it’s like to be thinking out food and meal prep all day!!


  • Oh yes, I think we can all relate to some, most or all of them


  • Completely accurate except I can add another point.
    Hoping to have some fun and laughter with your tween rather than them throwing attitude at everyone in the household.


  • So true and we love it


  • Yeah I agree. What a great testament to motherhood
