This Mother's Day Thank You Video Asks Kids How They Really Feel

This Mother's Day thank you video is one of the most realistic depictions of what I imagine motherhood to be like. Closer to hilarious than heartwarming, this clip is filled with adorable kids telling the camera what they'd really like to say to their moms. The result? A bunch of smart-ass remarks and backhanded compliments.

One little boy thanks his mom for "using him as an excuse to get out of social obligations," while another thanks his for all the lies she tells him. Indeed, being a mother means you have to tell a few white lies from time to time (for the sake of your sanity), whether it be that gum-chewing is illegal or that mommy and daddy were "just hugging."

However, the best part of the video is when the kids show off the swear words their parents taught them. For some reason, a kid yelling an expletive will just never not be funny.
