"I love you mom, but please stop with the emojis"

Emoji Mom - Parents love using emojis, and most moms use them quite literally. I mean, isn't that why we created emojis in the first place?

"Relationship with my mom. The timeline."

Mom Timeline - This "relationship with mom timeline" studied thousands of mothers' relationships with their children.

Okay, that's not true, but some life experiences don't need studied to be recognized as universal truths.

"Not the worst mom."

Not The Worst Mom Card - A floral-themed, sassy Mother's Day card to brighten up your mom's day. If she is not the worst, then she might as well be the best.

"You're the best momager."

Momager - Growing up, a mom really takes the role of managing your life. She sets your appointments, decides what you eat, where to go to school, what chores you should do, what haircut should you have... 

So if there are any photos of you sporting a bowl cut or embarrassing outfit... you know who to blame.

"Mom, I should've listened to you more. Except for that bowl cut in second grade. That was awful."

Should've Listened More - Okay, we got hung up on the bowl cuts.
