We have all heard about ‘Dad Jokes’ but did you know there are ‘Mum Jokes’ too. Dads are often given credit for being the funny one in the family, but mums can be just as funny, if not funnier. What makes ‘Mum Jokes’ especially funny is that they are often about… well about being a mum.
Here are a few ‘Mum Jokes’ that I love.
What do you call a small mum?
(Being 5 foot 2 I find this one particularly funny)
Daughter: “Mum, what’s it like to have the greatest daughter in the world?”
Mum: “I don’t know dear, ask your grandmother.”
What makes more noise than a child jumping on mummy’s bed?
Two children jumping on mummy’s bed!
And one that relates particular well to my new book GET READY, MAMA! and Mother’s Day…
Omelet Mummy sleep in today.
Here are some more hilarious books about mums, for mums, written by Aussie authors – some of whom are also mums.
And finally a gift for all the mums out there...my favourite ‘Mum Joke’
Howard you like breakfast in bed mummy?
Happy Mother's Day!!
