When her Instagram account Crazy Jewish Mom went mega-viral, Kate Siegel was getting text conversations messaged to her by the hundreds.
"Every week I'd get these screenshots of the lunatic convos people were having with their own parents," Kate continued. "Apparently, it's not just my mom who is comfortable giving her daughters' phone numbers to strange men in Starbucks!"
"I started posting them to @YourCrazyFamily and the submissions kept coming. It's basically family therapy for the whole internet," Siegel told BuzzFeed.
"At least we can all commiserate and laugh at how ridiculous our families can be!"
...And ridiculous they are, indeed.
But hey, they keep their word, right?
They stay sharp while they age.
They try out their new personalities on us.
They ensure group texts stay exciting.
They know your soul.
They troll you on your birthday.
You can't argue with their powerful maternal instincts.
They care about your love life – although yes, usually too much.
They make sure you know exactly how sick with worry they were.
They'll never stop supporting your dreams.
And they know it's never too late to teach you what's right.
