Mom Emojis | What Moms Really Mean When They Send an Emoji | Motherhood | Humor

Since becoming a mom, I’ve found myself having less and less phone conversations.  Texting has become my default form of communication.  Because, It’s kind of hard to hold an actual conversation with a three-year-old screaming “poop!” repeatedly in the background.

But, since becoming a mom of two, even my texts have become a bit lackluster.  Sometimes it’s just easier to send an emoji, rather than a thoughtful response.  And let’s be honest – there are times that these little guys can communicate exactly what we’re thinking way better than words ever could.  I know I’m not the only mama taking advantage of the emoji language.  And since Webster has yet to add emojis to the dictionary – I’m going to break down some of my favorites for you…

So, What exactly do moms mean when they send an emoji?

😊 The generic smiley.  You’ll probably receive this when I’m too tired to come up with a witty/interesting response.  Don’t take offense – it’s not you, it’s me.

😁 Wish me luck!  I’m about to embark on a brave parenting journey.  Like taking the baby out in public without a pacifier.  Or going to the bathroom alone.

😂 I’m literally laughing out loud.  Probably at my own expense.

😒 I’m NOT amused.

😍 I love my kids so much.  Like really.  I think they’re the most beautiful creations on the planet.  I can’t control my love!

😘 I’m probably bribing you to do something for me if I send you this one.  Can you watch the kids while I get my nails done?  K, thanks, love you! 

😑 I can’t believe this is my life.  Not in the OMG I love my beautiful childrenkind of way.

😖 I’m about to lose it.  My choices are to punch something, run away from home, or send you this emoji.  I chose the emoji.

😔 I’m disappointed.  Probably because the babysitter cancelled.

😳 I’m at a loss for words.  My kid’s probably playing with his own poop right now.

❤️‍ I love you, but I’m too sleep-deprived to type the words out.

💪 I’m feeling a bit like Super Woman today.

🙏 I’m praying.  I’m praying the kids nap, sleep in, eat their dinner, stay at grandma’s, etc.

👯 I’m doing my happy mama dance because my prayers were answered.  See above.

💁 I’m feeling pretty confident in my parenting skills today.

🙊 The kids did something that I probably should be disciplining them for, but I can’t stop laughing.

🎉 Time to celebrate!  Sometimes this is accompanied by the following emoji.

🍷 This one needs little explanation.  Mama needs wine.  Mama needs wine NOW.

👑 I’m the queen.  And don’t you forget it.
