Last week, me, my parents, my sister, and my kiddos went on a road trip to Mount Rushmore. At first, I was worried that I would end the trip in a straight jacket.
But, it actually turned out to be not that bad! Of course, there were some “I’m-going-to-pull-my-hair-out-if-you-two-don’t-stop-it” moments, but the good times far outweighed the bad and we really enjoyed ourselves!
I’m fully aware that family trips can be downright awful sometimes, so if you’re dreading a road trip coming up or you’ve just returned from one, here’s some funny to make you laugh to keep from crying!
I don’t know about y’all, but here at the Huffman Homestead we’ve been battling sickness off and on for the past FIVE WEEKS. Yeah, you read that right: FIVE. WEEKS. Seriously. One person would get sick, then recover, and then another person would get it. That’s how its been. And, not only that, but its been SO. STINKING. COLD.
I’m so done with winter.
And I think we could all use some laughter to get us out of this seasonal affective disorder. Enter: I Mom So Hard to get us out of this funk!
Y’all, its one week til Christmas. And I think I speak for every mom, dad, teacher, and anyone else who is around children right now when I say: WE ARE ALL LOSING OUR MINDS! Seriously, I think once Thanksgiving is over kids have an unspoken pact with one another to take every last shred of sanity from the adults in their lives. Because we’re all going crazy, I’ve found some hilarious memes and tweets to help you laugh to keep from crying!
Before I was a mom, I went out and did cool things. I went to concerts, I traveled (though, we’ve traveled since having kids but let me tell ya, that ain’t no vacation), and got involved in fun activities. Since becoming a mom (especially a mom of two) my definition of “fun” has changed significantly.
So when I saw this video from the hilarious ladies at The Break Womb, I was cry-laughing because of how true it is! Just take a look!
Hey, Mommas! How ya doin’? Going a little crazy now that the kids have been home 24/7 for three months? Counting down the days until school starts? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one!
Check out this hilarious video the funny ladies from My Life Suckers and That’s Inappropriate put together showing the oh-so-familiar transition moms go through during the summer months!
As moms, we know that our work never stops. There’s always laundry to fold, dishes to wash, boo-boos to kiss, tantrums to soothe, and booties to wipe. Our “shift” is never over; its a 24/7/365. The oh-so-funny ladies at My Life Suckas knows what we’re talkin’ about. Just check out this parody of Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic— you’ll be feeling hashtag same, sistah.
Y’all, this parenting gig is tough. Everyday there’s a new study being shared by a person on Facebook who thinks they have all the answers (hint: NO ONE has the answers and if someone claims to have all the answers, they’re delusional and you should not listen to them) and says they know how you should raise your child. One area of parenting I see being discussed a lot is discipline.
Everybody has an opinion: spank, don’t spank, redirection, positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, redirection, loss of privileges, lax parenting, etc. Many times I have to hit the “hide post” button because my eyes hurt from all of the rolling they do.
But, thankfully, there is one place I can find a break from all of the debates and get some giggles: the YouTube channel, The BreakWomb! Check out their hilarious video discussing discipline techniques:
I’ve been off my game lately when it comes to blogging. And showering. And fixing my hair. And doing laundry. Why, you ask?
Don’t get me wrong; I LOVE my kids. They are the reason I get up every day. (Literally. You can only pretend to be asleep for so long before your toddler knocks on the door, asking for chocolate milk.) But seriously, I love my kids with all my heart. They give me SO much joy! They also give me so many headaches. Because parenting is basically cleaning up after little dictators that push you super close to the edge of a cliff before swooping in and doing something so adorable that you forget all the crap they put you through. And then the next day it repeats.
To keep myself from going completely crazy, I like to read funny tweets from other parents to 1–let me know I’m not alone in this fight and 2–help me to laugh to keep from crying. I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you, because, I’m sure you need a giggle as well!

Anytime I get on Pinterest to find some sort of fitness pin, I see all kinds of workouts that are designed to help people get into shape while watching their favorite shows/movies. Like this one:
So I started thinking: “What if there was a workout like this but for moms?” I couldn’t find one, so I thought up a few exercises to help you mommas out there add some fitness to your day!
With things going crazy in the world and the election looming ever closer, I feel like we could all use some laughter in our lives, especially us overwhelmed, sleep-deprived Mommas! So work on some Kegels (I know how non-existent that post-partum bladder control is and I don’t want you peepin’ your pants!) and get ready to giggle!
Can you relate?
