Mother’s Day rant goes viral as woman shares what mums really want


A woman’s rant over what mums really want for Mother’s Day has gone viral.

With supermarket aisles full of mugs, candles, teddies and cushions ahead of this Sunday’s event, Kellie Ann George-Hamill decided to share a few home truths about the occasion.

And her words have clearly struck a chord with fellow mums as the post on Facebook, where she decided to have her rant, has been shared more than 11,000 times.

In it she talks about how firstly the day should be renamed ‘Sorry your fa**y got wrecked’ and goes on to list a number of things that mums really would like this weekend.

Like the ability to ‘pi** in peace’, for the kids and other half to ‘move your own s**t’, ‘to cook a meal and have it eaten without fuss’, and ‘most importantly…. …. when you get put to bed, go to sleep’.

Mums have been busy tagging each other – and their partners – in on the post, which Kellie, from Leicester, shared earlier this month.

“This is the reason I ended up choosing my own Mother’s Day gifts,” said one mum. “Men will go to shops and pick out any random crap just like this…. Get my own thanks, Pay off his card, Thank you!”

Here’s Kellie’s rant in full

“Just got back from my food shop and whilst out I spotted the Mother’s Day aisle. Whilst this stuff is cute in its own way, mothers of young children and teenagers do not want this sh**e. We really don’t.

“If you really want to show appreciation on the day that should really be called ‘Sorry your fa**y got wrecked’ then listen up. This is what we want.

“We want to pi** in peace. We want two minutes alone in the bathroom without a little human staring at our bits like it’s going to start firing out ping pong balls. Nothing magical is going to happen so for the love of God, leave us alone.

“We want you to get dressed. We want to hand you your clothes and not have to find you twenty minutes later wearing nothing but your underwear and one fu**ing shoe.

“Move your own sh**. How simple is that? This applies to husbands too. Shoes and coats have a place so use them!

“Same as toys. Although put them away properly! My 6yr old once put his creepy ass toy doll in the fridge and I had a f****** heart attack getting the milk out.

“We want to cook a meal and have it eaten without fuss. Without cries of desperation that you no longer like pizza despite having af****** meltdown the day before that you couldn’t have it because I’d cooked sausage and mash.

“Stop losing your f****** socks. Tesco thinks I gave birth to centipedes.

“Boys. Wipe the damn toilet seat.

“Girls. Sit properly on the toilet cos you keep spraying and your brothers get the blame.

“Most importantly…….. When you get put to bed, Go to sleep!

“Seriously kids it’s the only time we get to feel human. Not only that but when you’re pi**ing about till gone 10pm, I’m too tired to do anything remotely naughty with Daddy! You might think I’m old but mummy needs some **** if I’m going to tolerate your tantrums over your f****** sock feeling funny.

“Pretty certain none of the above will happen though so I’ll smile politely and with gratitude at whatever you get me because you’re my world and who wants full bladder control anyway??”
