Mother’s Day Portraits Gone Awry

Re-posted from last year, with several extra-heartwarming additions…

Ah, Mom.  In honor of Mother’s Day being right around the corner, here are a few pictures that prove us moms are something special, all right.


Kids have a way of expressing their appreciation from the very beginning.


I think *all* kids have heard from their mother at some point, "If you love me, you will carry me wearing a bandage bikini."


This mom requested a meal in bed: a beefcake sandwich.


Waiting for everyone to smile at the same time can be a long, tiring process, indeed.


Good thing the kids are wearing masks to conceal their identity.


That girl is SO ready to call Child Protective Services.


Mom says, "Ho Ho Ho!"


"Where are your jazz hands, kids? JAZZ HANDS!"


Just a candid, natural peek into their everyday life.


The kid in the back just totally goosed Mom.


Let's just assume Mom is wearing a strapless bikini. *AHEM*


"What do you say, kid? Will you let me perform with you in the school talent show or what?"


All Mom ever wanted was for her daughters to blend in.

Top 10 Tell-Tale Signs You Are a Mother

Happy Mother’s Day to all the hot mamas out there!  In honor of this most beloved holiday, here is The Laughing Stork’s list of the TOP 10 TELL-TALE SIGNS YOU ARE A MOTHER:

10.  The words “because I said so” have passed your lips.

9.  You believe your spittle is an acceptable substitute for soap.

8.  You’ve seduced your husband with this naughty phrase:  “Hey, we probably have a good ten minutes till she wakes up.”  [*WINK*]

7.  Spit-up is your new black.

6.  You fantasize about Greg from “The Wiggles.” (Those black hot pants are irresistible.)

5.  You can flat-iron your hair, text your boss and perform an appendectomy with one hand.

4.  Nap Time is your new Happy Hour.

3.  You have sophisticated dinner conversations, often starting with the provocative question:  “So did the big guy poop on the potty today?”

2.  Your showers have been replaced by baby wipes and, on a good day, deodorant.

1.  You have read the signs on this list and nodded, “Tru dat, sistah!”
