Being a mother isn’t always exactly a pleasurable experience.
Sure, it’s fulfilling; it’s pouring with nice sensations, and it’s positively brimming with personal development.
Catering to your little spawn’s daily demands, on the other hand, is a grueling, nerve-wracking, and time-consuming process that you have to go through 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
You’ll be doing this for the rest of your life.
And, aside from being overjoyed at your child’s accomplishments, there’s one more thing you can do to alleviate your woes: laugh your socks off by reading these mom jokes, which are designed for parents but enjoyable for everyone.
Laughter is, without a doubt, the best painkiller and the most effective way to take a mental break.

So, here’s our roundup of the best mom jokes we’ve come across — all 52 of them, to be exact, which you can read in between feedings, diaper changes, and cleaning up the incessant mess.
