Parenting is a lot of work and can be stressful at times. As a mother of five very unique and special kids I have learned that the best way to handle the hard times in motherhood is to look for the humor. My kids say and do things that make me laugh every single day. You can follow my crazy, busy, and funny life on my personal blog, Talbert Zoo.
Laughter has many health benefits. It helps ease stress, lifts depression and burns calories. I have searched far and wide for the funniest mom blogs and came up with this list of 10 top funny mom blogs.
1. Somewhat Sane Mom by Katie

2. Mommy’s Weird by Kyla
“When I left my corporate marketing job to become a SAHM, I was grossly unprepared for how difficult it would be.
The sleep deprivation, the loneliness, my inability to cook a meal without burning something, my daughter’s intense dislike for crafts…
But rather than wallowing in self-pity, I decided to create a place where I can share funny stories, crafts we’ll never do, and recipes I’ll never make, with a few parenting and beauty tips and tricks thrown in for good measure. I keeps me from opening the wine at 9 am. cloudywithachanceofwine.com
