Mom Strikes up a Conversation in a Pizza Shop and Is Blown Away When She Sees Who It's With


I'm not really obsessed with the idea of having kids myself, but I can concede that, generally speaking, moms are pretty much the absolute best. First off, it's absolutely selfless to carry a child in your belly for nine months, and don't even get me started on trying to shape it into a decent human being while bankrolling its life. 

THEN, it's even more humbling when you realize that the most expensive stage of parenting only hits once kids grow up into adults, as a new study shows parents are spending more on their 18 to 35-year-olds than they did on their infant-to-toddler, or even elementary-through-high-school years. Which takes me back to point No.1 about not having my own kids, but I digress.

Essentially, moms are just awesome. They're always around to give you honest advice, a shoulder to cry on, and once you're out of the house, they generally just exist to be cute. 

And if you don't believe me because you don't have an adorable mom who calls you once a month to ask what you want in your (adult) care package (that she pays for), take the story of @ChachiChatters as a prime example.
