Moms have hard jobs. Alongside their husbands, they have to take care of their families, make sure everything is in working order, somehow manage their own lives and careers, and get enough sleep at the same time. It’s no wonder that being a mom (or a dad!) can be so tiresome and exhausting. In the end, it’s all worth it…right?

We can all probably agree that most parents don’t get enough sleep…and if you’re a parent who is always on the go, sleep deprivation has probably become second nature to you.

Some weird things can happen to parents when they’re sleep deprived. Today we’ve got 24 hilarious mom confessions for you that will probably motivate you to encourage your mom to get a little bit more sleep every night. Here are 24 hilariously unfortunate things moms have done while sleep-deprived.

1. “I walked out to my car and strapped my son into his car seat before I realized that I didn’t have pants on.”

2. “I got up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and was surprised to find I felt warm and wet. Turns out I was so tired that I was [relieving myself] on the couch instead of in the toilet. I had literally pulled down my pants, sat down on the couch, and started [relieving myself] as if I were on the toilet. I just added that to the list of bodily fluids I had to clean up that night.”

3. “I kept trying to open the front door of my house by pressing the unlock button on my car key.”

4. “I put cartoons on for my bub so I could lay and relax for 5. Woke up an hour later with a completely destroyed kitchen, there were sponges and clothes everywhere, she had emptied every alfoil and baking paper roll she could find all over the kitchen floor.”

5. “I put hand soap on my toothbrush instead of toothpaste.”

6. “Woke up in the middle of the night to my baby crying and started patting his bum back to sleep… Only to realize I hadn’t got out of bed yet and was actually patting my husband’s bum.”

7. “I drove to daycare after work to pick up my daughter. I freaked out at the daycare teacher for “losing my child!” (and I mean completely hysterical) until the director had to calm me down and remind me that my daughter doesn’t go to daycare on that day and that she was, in fact, safe and happy at home with her dad.”

8.“I was so tired that when the baby cried at night I had the dream that I was already feeding her so I don’t have to get up.”

9. “When my baby was a few months old, I decided to have my first beer since getting pregnant. Apparently, the combination of being sleep-deprived and not having had a drink in over a year was a potent one — my husband had to wake me up. I fell asleep with my face on my food!”

10. “I finished a full grocery shopping trip, then fastened the baby into her car seat and drove away — leaving all of the groceries in the cart in the parking lot.”

11. “I got in the shower, water running…. with clothes and glasses still on.”

12. “When I was in the hospital with my son and had been awake for 48 hours straight, I started hallucinating. I kept seeing a rug fly and move like the magic carpet in Aladdin.”

13.”I was finally putting myself to bed so I wiped off my makeup and took off my earrings. I was so sleep deprived, though, that I put the dirty makeup wipe in my jewelry box and threw away my earrings.”

14. “I put my wallet in the freezer and the frozen peas in my handbag.”

15. “One night, after weeks and weeks of no sleep, I genuinely believed the baby was crying because my husband had taken money from him. My husband guided me back to bed and we had great fun laughing about it the next day.”

16. “We both totally forgot my husband’s birthday. We had a 20-day-old baby and we didn’t realize we’d missed it until a week later. Oops.”

17. “One night I realized my whole family was in the room with me but no one was holding the baby. Panicked, I yelled, ‘Where’s the baby?!’ My husband looked straight at me and said, ‘Um, honey, you’re nursing her.'”

18. “After pumping milk at 3 a.m. I walked into the kitchen and dumped it all down the drain. I screamed the second I realized what I did. I’d gone into zombie-cleaning mode without thinking.”

19. “I put toilet paper in the freezer”

20. “When my baby woke up in the middle of the night crying I answered the door thinking it was someone ringing the doorbell.”

21. “I’ve been so tired, I thought my husband’s shirt was my pair of shorts and tried putting it on.”

22. “I filled a sippy with milk and handed it to the dog. When he didn’t take it I got annoyed and said, ‘Well? Here you go!’ It took me a full five seconds to realize he wasn’t the 2-year-old.”

23. “I hopped into the car after putting both boys in the car and took off. Slammed on the brakes after reaching for my late that I’d worked so hard to get and realized it wasn’t there. Stopped in the middle of the street, I opened the door and stood up. Sure enough—latte (still standing) on the roof of my car.”

24. “Went to the supermarket to quickly get some bread and was rocking and patting the bottom of the bread like it was my baby.”
