Sometimes as moms, we have hard days, or even just down right bad days. You aren’t getting things done that need to be done, the toddler is on their fifth tantrum of the day, and you haven’t even gotten to eat your own breakfast yet. We’ve all been there. You need just five minutes alone to breathe and recompose before handling that screaming child. Sometimes, I need someone to sympathize with me and validate what I’m dealing with, and sometimes I just need to laugh before I burst into tears.

While a good girlfriend or your mom are always good options, sometimes they aren’t available. In those times, who better to turn to than the mommy bloggers. And let me just say, we have some hilarious mommy bloggers on the web these days.

I’ve decided to round up six of my favorite, go-to (and so so funny) articles that I use on my hard days. These ladies have been there and have a way of sarcastically making it through the day and helping me make it through mine feeling a bit better.

I give you permission to now lock yourself in the bathroom for 5 minutes to just laugh. And if you can’t fit it all in before the little fingers start peeking under the door and the incessant “momomomomomomom” starts, bookmark it and come back when you need another five minutes of laugh-so-you-don’t-cry time.
