Mum Problems: a comedy of Chaos, coffee & craziness

Hey there, fellow mums! Can we just take a moment to appreciate the chaos that comes with this wonderful, wacky world of motherhood? From sleepless nights to sticky hands and endless laundry, being a mum is like being a superhero without the spandex suit (although that would be pretty cool too). So, grab your coffee, kick off your superhero cape (if you can find it), and let’s dive into the hilarious world of mum problems!

  1. The Vanishing Socks Phenomenon

Remember when you used to have matching pairs of socks? Well, those days are long gone, my friend. Somehow, in the mysterious vortex of the washing machine, socks magically disappear, leaving you with an overflowing basket of single socks, each with a hopeful longing to be reunited with their partner. Who needs matching socks anyway? It’s a fashion statement, right?

  1. Mastering the Art of Stealth Eating

If you thought eating in peace was a luxury you could enjoy as a mum, think again. The moment you sit down with your delicious meal, your little ones develop a sixth sense and suddenly have an urgent need for attention, snacks, or the urge to recreate Picasso’s masterpieces on the living room wall. Stealth eating becomes your superpower, as you learn to devour your food in lightning speed, dodging little hands and navigating around potential messes.

  1. The “Mum Brain” Phenomenon

Mum brain is a real thing, my friends. You know you have it when you find your car keys in the fridge and your phone in the washing basket. You can recite every episode of your child’s favorite cartoon but struggle to remember your own name. Remember, it’s not forgetfulness; it’s just your brain overloaded with all the superhero tasks you juggle daily. Embrace the chaos and laugh along with those “mum brain” moments.

  1. The Art of Negotiation (aka Bedtime Battles)

Bedtime can sometimes feel like a scene from a negotiating table. Your little negotiators pull out their most persuasive arguments, ranging from “I need a glass of water” to “I can’t sleep without my favorite stuffed animal, which is conveniently missing.” You become a master negotiator, armed with patience and creative problem-solving skills. Who knew bedtime could be such a thrilling adventure?

  1. Coffee, the Nectar of Mums

Coffee: the lifeblood of mums everywhere. It’s the magical elixir that helps you power through those early mornings, late nights, and everything in between. The scent of freshly brewed coffee can trigger superhero-like abilities, transforming you from a groggy mess to a caffeinated force to be reckoned with. Cheers to all the mums fueling their superhero powers with that glorious cup of joe!


Being a mum is a wild and wonderful journey filled with laughter, love, and a whole lot of chaos. Embracing the mum problems with a sense of humor is the key to surviving and thriving in this crazy adventure. So, fellow mums, let’s raise our mismatched socks, enjoy our stealthy meals, embrace our “mum brain,” negotiate like champions, and savor every sip of our superhero fuel (coffee!). You’re doing an amazing job, and remember, laughter is the best superpower in the world of mum problems!
