By  | 

Mother’s Day is always a big deal for families because moms are awesome and she deserves to be spoiled and often Mother’s Day cards is a simple way to do that. The funny thing about the day is that if you were to ask the moms in your life — the ones who still have little children especially — what they really want, chance are you’ll hear the same thing: time to themselves. The holiday — is that what we call it? — is often spent with moms listening to their kids talk about the handmade craft their teachers helped them make and cleaning the kitchen from the messes they’ve made trying to cook you something special. It’s wonderful and I’m not knocking it, but it can be just another exhausting day.

That’s why laughter is so important and if the moms in your life have a good sense of humor, laughter can be the best thing. That’s why we say forget those sappy cards you can pick up at any corner store that are all pink and flowery and filled with inspirational words and go with one of these cards that are just way more honest and will give the whole family the laugh it needs.
