As anyone who’s ever been subjected to the Ways of the Mom can tell you, moms can attack at any time, be it through embarrassing Facebook updates, sudden onset white panic, or regular email forwards about how WD-40 can protect you from the zombie apocalypse. 

So of course, the kids know their mom all too well.

It’s okay, mom, we laugh with you, not at you—at least until you share this on your Facebook.
