Most moms just want to do inherently nice or cute things with their family. Family photos are one of them.
Sure, it's a little corny to all wear matching horrendous Christmas sweaters during the Holiday season. And yes, talking to your aunt from across the country to tell her you love her is probably the last thing in the world you want to do, but you begrudgingly pick up the phone and honor your mother's wishes anyway. Or when your mom decides on the spur of the moment you need some sort of "Fall" themed family photos for whatever reason. It can actually get kind of stressful. Maybe mom is running out of ideas for these things cause it seems like each season equals another chance for her to find the perfect moment.
Although sometimes, mom's best intentions go wrong. Like when you find out the only reason your aunt wanted to talk to you is because she needs a good weed dealer, or the Christmas sweaters you're all wearing are made of a wool blend you and your entire family are horribly allergic too. Or you can be like this mom and fail miserably while trying to spell the word "love" with your family via awkward hand posing. Do you see it? Apparently Mom didn't cause she seemed to absolutely love how they turned out. Poor mom.
Yes, these filthy little brats went and ruined their poor mom's photo shoot. They couldn't just let the mom who tried so hard have this one moment. Though we can't say we blame them, the opoortunity was probably too good to pass up.
Twitter was devastated.
As well as British TV show references.
Other people shared their own love of spelling out bad words.
Others were jealous of the family.
