Our society can be really weird when it comes to motherhood. Throughout human history, parents have had help from community, but now the metaphorical village is hard to come by. That's why having a kid start pre-school, day care or elementary can feel like such a relief. When Ali Wong says she's ready to lie down and have "the teachers come off the bench" we totally get it.
We're grateful for our kids' teachers, too. It's nice to have some responsible adults backing you up. Sometimes a weekend with the kids feels like work and sometimes it feels like paradise. Ali knows that both can be true.

Motherhood is complicated. Sometimes we yearn to go back to work and sometimes we yearn to have more time off with the family. It's normal to want days like this one to never end but unfortunately they do. If this photo of Ali Wong sleeping beneath her sleeping baby wasn't already super relatable, the caption is. Now we're humming Mariah Carey's iconic tune and nodding in agreement. And Ali's hashtag, blessedbutdone" is also super on point. You can love your kids dearly without wanting more.

Kids are heavy! We promise we'll return the cart when we're done! Also I grew a pair of testicles. Pumping breast milk is not exactly glamorous, but that didn't stop Ali from posting this double pump pic to Instagram, "Giving my firmed a tutorial on how to pump hands free," she wrote. Everybody needs a friend like this because pumping is hard!
We could all use a coach especially one as hilarious as Ali Wong. It's hard to believe, but it's been a whole year since Gabrielle Union announced the birth of her baby girl. Since then, we've all had the pleasure of watching adorable baby Kaavia James grow, as well as seeing Union and husband Dwyane Wade raise her. This year hasn't always been easy for Union, however, as she shared in a beautifully honest post on her daughter's birthday.
Scared to reveal I have no clue what I'm doing. Scared to go to work. Scared to stay home. Scared when you sleep.
