Emma Thompson and the cast of Saturday Night Live show you what it takes to be the perfect mother in 2019.
Let’s be honest, motherhood is really hard and no one can be the perfect mom. For every gorgeous family photo we post on Instagram, behind the scenes, there are hundreds of tough and gross moments. Emma Thompson, Heidi Gardner, and Mikey Day show what it’s really like to be a mom in SNL’s ‘The Perfect Mother.’
SNL’s ‘The Perfect Mother’ is the perfect sketch for moms of today. On one hand, being a mom is the most beautiful, joyful experience and it feels like an honor to be someone’s mother. On the other hand, motherhood is hell. Complete and utter hell. But still… somehow, it’s all worth it. You’ll forget all about the destruction, epic stand-offs, world-ending meltdowns, oh, and don’t forget all the poop in your hair. It’ll all be worth it… one day.
So don’t worry if you’re not ‘the perfect mother’ – you’re still a great mom and should be celebrated. Happy Mother’s Day to you and give yourself the gift of laughter by watching this sketch from Saturday Night Live!
