18 Movie Moms We Swore We’d Never Become, But Kind Of Did

By  | 

Movies can be a great escape. They can also give you an idea of the kind of person you want to be, and the kind of person you DEFINITELY don’t want to be. Growing up watching movies, there were plenty of movie moms I swore I would never turn out like; some were uncool, some were overbearing, others were absolutely bonkers. But now that I’m a mom, I’m realizing that I might have turned out a bit like all those moms I swore I would never be like. One day you wake up and it hits you like a ton of bricks: maybe I don’t care about wire hangers, but I will lose my everloving shit over crumbs in my bed. These 18 movie moms have plenty of issues, but in hindsight, they make some good points. Raising kids isn’t easy!

The great thing about movie moms is that they are an exaggerated version of our worst selves, and they can make us feel a little less crappy about ourselves as parents. Sure, you made your kid cry because you wouldn’t let them have popcorn for dinner. But did you try to sew buttons onto their eyes or threaten them with wire hangers? No? Then you’re good! We are our harshest critics, and can beat ourselves up over the slightest misstep. But when compared to some of these movie moms, we’re doing just fine, guys.

Movie moms can be sweet and loving. Or, they can be Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest. I think we’ve all got a little Joan Crawford in us.

Obviously, Joan goes a bit … overboard when she discovers a wire hanger in Christina’s closet. But honestly, how many times do we have to say, “NO <insert whatever it is that drives you up a wall>!” My kids would sneak into my bed during the day and eat crackers. CRACKERS. IN. MY. BED. I stopped buying crackers for a good long while. We all have our breaking point. Whatever your thing is, whether it’s wire hangers or crackers in your bed or your kids using all the toilet paper to make casts for their baby dolls (hi, it me), one day we will reach out limit.
