Being a mom is tough work, but someone has got to do it.
When you’re a mom, you have to be your child’s protector, their caretaker, their foundation, and so much more. It is tiresome, but always rewarding in the end.
However, every mom knows that it isn’t always a glamorous job. You’re almost always covered in something (you’re praying it isn’t poop). You’re always tired. You’re hungry at random hours. You never get any privacy.
But you put a smile on your face because you love your child more than anything in the world, right?
Well, maybe it is time to stop telling them that the day they were born was the best day of your life. It was! I’m not trying to imply you weren’t blessed beyond belief when your child was born. But the actual birth? That was a nightmare. Right?
It seems that the sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live is finally addressing that matter. We all love our children, but the moment that they actually came into the world was kind of a disaster.
If you’ve ever given birth, you need to see this sketch ASAP.
Saturday, May 12, 2018, comedian Amy Schumer hosted Saturday Night Live. During the episode, this pre-taped sketch aired in honor of Mother’s Day and it got real.
It was really honest about how giving birth actually goes down. It isn’t smiles and kind words. More often than not, it feels like you’re being ripped apart and you want to choke anyone who gets too close to you.
In the skit, Amy’s TV son surprises his mom with breakfast in bed for Mother’s Day. Which then turns to the topic of the day he was born.
Amy explains to him how it was the best day ever, but as she tells him, there are flashbacks to the actual moment and they’re hilarious, accurate, and so realistic.
Amy tells her son: “The day you born? It was amazing!”
Then it cuts right to a scene of her in a hospital delivery room, screaming at the top of her lungs. One of the doctors tells her “only a few more centimeters” until she is ready to start pushing, to which she asks, “how much bigger can the hole get?”
The sketch is intermittent with scenes in the present where Amy peacefully describes how her son’s birth happened, then flashbacks to the day of.
One of the best things that she screams is “am I pooping?” While another hilarious moment is when her husband asks after the baby is born, “why does he look like that? Why is he yellow?”
Moms were quick to hop online to say how much they loved this sketch:
This was hilarious and so true! It’s amazing the sacrifices Mothers make for their children. They deserve so much more credit than they actually get for all the work they do in raising their children from birth all the way till adulthood.
One YouTube commenter said:
This is the best personification of what it’s really like for a mother before and after the experience of giving birth and make a change in their lives. The video was straight up funny
Some haters were mad that Amy did this sketch, as she isn’t a mom yet IRL. However, fans defended her online:
I love how Amy Schumer keeps getting work even though basically half of the internet tries to discredit her for anything she does. It makes the haters more miserable and they get more hateful because they do not have anything better to do with their lives. I mean come on get over her
What did you think of the sketch? I can’t stop laughing!
