“If you can’t make it better, you can laugh at it,” said the iconic Erma Bombeck.
Was she talking about dinnertime with kids? Who knows.
But her advice is certainly applicable to the nightly chore that — let’s face it — usually falls on moms because we are the ones who get stuff done.
So when your kids complain night after night about what you made for dinner, you can laugh at it.
And when they eat only part of what you made while picking out the bits of onion, you can laugh at it.
Or when they make artful creations on their plate to hide what they aren’t eating, you can laugh at it.
To help you laugh at making dinner for your kids I present these dinnertime memes. All memes are originals by little ol’ me, but I think they strike a universal chord with moms everywhere.
The one about someone else
The one about what’s for dinner
The one about that smell
The one about using the crockpot
Anyone else throw bratwurst and kraut in the slow cooker and forget about it until you are greeted by THAT smell upon walking in the house at the end of the day?
I yi yi.
So the next time you’re making dinner for your kids, and they complain, whine, play with their food and/or refuse to eat, may these memes bring you a moment of joy.
And some solidarity, Moms, that you are not alone!
