About the writer


What started as an innocent on-line baby book to chronicle Jill Smokler’s stay-at-home days with her children, quickly transformed into a vibrant community of parents, brought together by a common theme: Parenting doesn’t have to be perfect. Welcome to Scary Mommy!

I saw a card today that had basically that “Have the Mother’s Day you deserve…whatever it takes” message on it. On the front was a picture of a mom telling her small son, “Go ahead and hide. I’ll come find you.”

These are fantastic and super accurate.

Vomit directed toward Daddy- that’s like a double present. 😉

Have fun at Disney!

Have a wonderful time. Cannot wait to hear about the special magic they make. Crossing fingers it’s not overflowing toilets, barfing mid-air or, like my youngest does, identifying (loudly) people who look like movie characters, “Mom, that lady looks like Fat Amy.”

Love the bathroom door one especially!

Jealous of DisneySMMoms! I don’t understand how people get invited to that. I never hear anything about it and then all the sudden everyone’s going!

Wishing all the amazing mamas here those same things.

I have to share mother’s day with my husband. Not only is it his birthday, it’s his 50th! So unfair. I never get mother’s day all to myself :-( Yes I’m pouting.

    He’s only 50 once, you’re a mom everyday. Let him have this one.

Not a fan of the duct tape cards, but the rest are great.

Eye rolls are perfected in the teen years, a skill like riding a bike since I still eye roll my 80+ year old mom. Have a great Disney trip and a fabulous Mother’s Day – with or without duct tape.

There are awesome!

These are great! The duck tape works really good. If nothing else make dad take them out for the day.

Enjoy your trip!

Duct tape solves everything :)

Wow…these are great.

Having just acquired a teen daughter (so that kinda makes me a mom now, I guess), I can add:

May your Mother’s Day consist of a shower with hot water and not one eye roll. Or long sigh.
