I have to tell you that I haven’t laughed out loud that much or that genuinely in a long time.
Although there were definitely parts of the movie that were exaggerated, I completely related to the daily overwhelming feelings of motherhood and parenting in general that Mila Kunis’ character portrayed so perfectly.
One of my most favorite things about the movie, after all of the hilarious and laugh until you are crying moments, is that it actually says all of the things that I have felt about being a mom but don’t often express.
There were so many amazing quotes and lessons that I took away from the movie.
I wanted to share the 10 things you can learn from the movie Bad Moms (even though there were way more than 10).
10 Things You Can Learn From The Movie Bad Moms
1. It is ok to be a working mom, a stay at home mom, a single mom or any other type of mom. Lets all stop the mom judging and the mom shaming, because no matter what type of mom you may be, we all crave and deserve time away from our kids at some point.
2. Yes, you can actually say no to being a part of the PTA and it’s perfectly fine.
3. Saying no to your kids is perfectly ok and actually much-needed at times, so don’t be afraid to just say NO!
4. If you stop cooking every single meal for your kids and catering to all of their needs, they may actually have to learn to do some things for themselves.
5. Moms are allowed to live their best lives outside of their kids worlds. Don’t feel guilty for participating in girls night out, meeting for happy hour, having a date night, going to see a movie (that isn’t a cartoon, Disney, or Pixar related), or even meeting up with your girls at the grocery store for some late night fun (you have to see Bad Moms to appreciate that one).
6. Most of our kids lives are already amazing and magical, so stop working and trying so damn hard to make it even more amazing and magical. Your kids childhood and experiences shouldn’t be a competition with others, so just relax.
7. It’s impossible to know whether or not you are truly doing a good job as a mom, but no matter what your kids love you unconditionally.
8. Make sure that you have some non-mom bras in your wardrobe.
9. When your kids tell you that they don’t like an activity or a sport, or it’s no longer fun for them, please listen. Stop pushing and paying for kids to be a part of every activity, sport or club, especially if it is not what they really want to do. Let your kids have the chance to enjoy the freedom of being a kid.
10. Moms, please stop trying to always take on and do everything on your own. Accept the fact that it takes a village to successfully raise kids. Whenever kids are involved the days usually never go as planned, so create your village and know that it is ok to rely on them the way that they should also be able to rely on you.
