Yes, moms swear. Deal with it. Contrary to popular opinion, we’re not bots who wake with a smile and fart glitter. Things get on our nerves, too. That’s what happens when you are thanklessly charged with caring for other humans. Things get on your nerves. And you let your fuck flag fly.

It’s a noun, it’s a verb, it’s an adjective — it’s the perfect word. If “fuck” were a food, it would be pizza. Or ice cream. Or cupcakes. Or something equally delicious that you always want to eat.

Buzzfeed Parents posted a video this week that every mom can relate to. Well, every mom who swears. And we all know people who don’t swear cannot be trusted. If you don’t know how to place a well-timed “fuck,” the fuck is your problem?

Yup. This is about right. Some situations just call for a #@*!
