25 Times Moms Hysterically Summed Up Parenting With 1 Picture

Everyone knows that parenting is hard, but sometimes, it’s harder than usual.

When you’re running late and you discover your toddler has scribbled all over the family dog, for instance. Or when your infant has an explosive poo that requires a fire hose and a HazMat suit to clean up, but you don’t have those things because you’re in the middle of the supermarket. Just for example.

The moms in the following images all know first-hand how difficult it is to keep it together when raising kids, and they’ve each summed up the struggle in one perfect photo.
