We, as Moms, take our children to the doctors at the drop of a hat. We don’t analyze or make excuses – we load them in the car and hit the road.

Well, what about us? Do we take care of our body like we do for our family? I don’t know about you, but I can scream the word “NO” at the top of my lungs.

Why is that I wonder? There is one doctor that I totally despise going to. And that would be the dreaded gynecologist for me. The only time I quite enjoyed the visit there was when I was pregnant. The thought of carrying a wonderful living, breathing gift was so monumental.

But to just go there for your yearly visit was worse than pulling teeth for me. I thought maybe I was the freak who didn’t like this doctor, but then I asked a couple of friends and I hysterically laughed.

Everything I was thinking, they had the same thoughts. I mean who despises someone who brings life into the world? What kind of idiot is that? What woman is afraid of their vagina?? From what I learned – there are a lot of us out there! LOL.

Here are some reasons why Moms hate the Gyno visit:

1. Those stupid robes – can they give us some satin robes to put on. I mean a woman’s body is a wonderland. Hard fabric on our va-jay-jay is just not right.

2. “Slide on down and put your feet in the stirrups.” – those are the words that send me into a spiral. First off, it is cold as hell laying on that table and there you are trying to get your self situated. And don’t get me started about the stirrups. Couldn’t they add heat to them somehow.

3. Oh, then the worse starts. The doctor begins to talk. WTH! Questions like “What’s new, How was your weekend, Any good dinner recipes lately, Looks like you gained a little weight?” Why??? Why can’t they just get on with it and get me the hell out of there!!

4. Then, while their head is down in the area and you are so exposed – it is like they can see into your soul – they begin to tell you how you should take better care of yourself. A woman’s health is very important. Okay, I get it. But one question I would love to ask – “Hey Doc, while your head is in my crotch, what do you see that makes you say that statement? Is my vagina not good enough?”

I guess it is like that for men, when they feel the need to measure their penis.  LOL. So ladies, even if you hate “THE GYNO” like me, you do have to go!!  Just make sure your vagina looks fabulous and you will do great!!!

History has taught us that parenthood is a very tiring and trying process. One where even during the good moments, it’s questionable because of the unknown tantrums that are lurking in the midst. Welp… these funny mom tweets make it a little more bearable!

 

*Emails the Sharktank team.*

Nope!

Just hand them the iPad.

Sameeeee.

Actual tears 😂

They earned that rep!

Life comes at you fast.

Anything for pizza, TBH.

It’s been established that kids repel shoes actually.

Sometimes kids say funny shit. Well most of the time they do actually… because they don’t know how to lie just yet.
They’ll learn soon enough. Here’s some of the best tweets we’ve come across this week featuring our favorite humans… kids.

That’ll send him to bed on time every night!

Yikes 2x

Should be lucky I’m chauffeuring you in the first place!

Snuck in a few episodes of Breaking Bad while I was asleep eh?

Just like a crazy person.

What do you have to be cranky about?

Sometimes it’s your own parents… smh

Ask your digital aunties!

We love moms who are unapologetic about their bad “assery”… if that’s even a word. New mom, Serena Williams is definitely at the top of our list of women who are all about breaking mom-norms as well as records, promoting self-care, confidence and pushing boundaries. All while getting down to Beyonce. We’re pretty big fans of this champ, so we’re dedicating this Mom Crush Monday to her!

Let’s be honest… 2017 has been a shit show. But these hilarious tweets at least made the year a teeny bit bearable.

You should take some time out of your clusterf*ck of a day and get into these totally funny tweets about events, life with kids, shopping etc.

Look, I’m running on -8 hours of sleep. Don’t judge my actions!

*Sheds a tear for my delusional pre-child thinking.*

And will always out-asshole themselves daily.

Even his keyboard is disgusted by him and his mini hands.

And crying internally every day.

*Prepares self to hear the latest school yard drama between Jasmine and Becca.*

His misogynist ancestors are rolling in their graves… but are also confused about what a “twitter” is.

Technology never lies.

They can’t know all of your secrets!

Art imitates life… or vice versa?

No, but seriously who approved this?

Humble them real quick… there’s so much black mail potential.

Many of us would agree that it’s easier to communicate our feelings indirectly, with some sort of barrier separating ourselves and the other person – writing love letters, sending text messages, etc. But what if that divide didn’t exist? How much easier or harder would it be to convey those same emotions face-to-face, with no barrier to hide behind?

Echo Storytelling Agency, a writing and filmmaking company, came up with a project that allows fathers and their children to share the feelings that always seem to be the hardest to communicate – love and gratitude. Watch as these people ask their fathers the simplest, yet most difficult question to answer: “What about me makes you proud?”

This Father’s Day, if you have any strong emotions you’d like your fathers to know, be sure to #TellThemNow.
