A Note From Your Publisher: The one about mom ice breakers 📝

By Christen Reiner, Macaroni KID Lakewood-Littleton & Macaroni KID Denver Editor and Publisher June 8, 2024

Hey Mac Families,

I consider myself to be pretty good in social situations. Moms have an advantage in that they find that they have things in common just because they are moms. Those mom stories are always great ice breakers. I've heard some pretty amusing mom ice breakers over the years. What are some of your faves?


  • Sorry I was late... my kid just fell in the toilet fully clothed.
  • Is it just my kids, or do all of them eat their boogers?
  • My stroller once rolled off of a curb into a parking lot and dumped over. Yes, my baby was still in it. No, he wasn't hurt.
  • My kids totally embarrassed me today. My oldest tipped my full cart over and groceries skidded everywhere.
  • Is your kid a turd sometimes, too?
  • What is with 9 year old girls?
  • Don't mind my living room. I have kids.
  • Welp. I have puke and poop on my shirt. At least it's on the back.
  • Why didn't you tell me that I still had a sequin on my nose?
  • My kid pooped on me this morning, and managed to avoid getting any on his own butt cheeks.
  • It's 7pm. I'm off the clock.
  • Oh, your kid pooped her pants? I'm sure there's an extra pair of underwear in my car.
  • My in laws got my daughter a slime kit for her birthday. It went directly into the trash can, unopened. I'm not sorry.
  • I told my kids that the ice cream man only plays the music when he's out of ice cream.

Feel free to use one of these ice breakers when you are meeting another mom for the first time, are in a social situation with other moms, or you need to make small talk. To be honest, you probably have plenty to choose from on your own personal list of mom ridiculousness. Either way, I guarantee that the other moms will relate.

Peace ☮️, Love ❤️, & Macaroni 🌼,
