Your Laugh-Out-Loud Respite From Everyday Chaos.

Watch out world - I've got a Mom Card now!

I’ve Got A Mom Card!

I was doing 40 in a 30 zone.

It was a two-lane country road.

With no traffic at all.

The only reason I was going as slow as that was because up ahead is a big construction project.

The road is wrecked with potholes and gravel and debris.

A car came up from behind and rage-passed me, going 60 in the 30 zone.

I was mad.

I hope he hits a pothole.


While I was fuming and wishing ill will upon my fellow commuter, I saw flashing lights in the mirror.



I got pulled over for speeding.

For doing 40 in a 30.

Where was this cop just one minute ago?

It’s that other guy who deserves a speeding ticket, not me.

Thankfully, the cop was a very kind and polite young man.

He just gave me a warning.

No ticket.


In my youth, I used to cry my way out of tickets.

It worked like a charm.

The tides have turned.

Now I can play the Mom Card.

I feel so empowered.

Watch out, world!

I’m gonna start Momming like I’ve never Mommed before.
