They say you don’t know love until you know the love of a child. As any mother can tell you, however, just because you love your kids doesn’t mean they won’t drive you a little crazy sometimes. We all know what I’m talking about here. When you’re walking through the grocery store and make eye contact with another mom with three screaming children running around her. Her eyes send a pleading message of “I love them, I made them, but I need HELP!” But at the end of the day, you love them despite the “everything is sticky” moments, stepping on Legos before your morning coffee and the “my toddler is crying because I told them they can’t be a dinosaur when they grow up” kind of days.

In honor of Mother’s Day coming up on May 8th, we scoured Twitter for our 15 favorite tweets about the hilarious and crazy moments that make up being a mother. We're willing to bet that these moments will make you (and your mom) laugh.
