A mom has gone viral for trying to explain to her husband why she is so tired when she wakes up in the morning and it is hilariously relatable.


Mattea Goff was tired of telling her husband why she was tired in the mornings so she drew him a picture. The best part, she made him realised how useless his nipples were to them raising their child. Pretty much how every mother probably feels about their partner’s useless nipples.

“So this past weekend I was having a hard time finding the words (probably because I haven’t had any sleep) to express to Kris why I’m not in the best of moods first thing in the morning. So I sat down with my coffee and drew him a visual.”

Mattea shared the drawings on Facebook to show how funny they were but never imagined that her post would go viral. It has been shared over 200,000 times and is a favourite because so many moms can relate to what she is showing her husband.

“I’m a mom of two wonderful girls, Seleste 5 years and Aurora 5 months. We live in a small town in rural Texas.

I’ve been drawing and doodling comics for years and the context of that has changed as my life has changed, I’m currently a wife and mother so that’s where I get my inspiration from. This one came from a lack of sleep and the feeling of being spread a little too thin, something all moms can relate to.”

Mattea confirmed on ‘Love Matters’ that she never expected to get this much attention for her doodles. Her only goal was to give her mom friends a good giggle and throw some humour at a sometimes, serious situation.

“My husband Kris has always thought my stuff was kinda funny but I think he was just as surprised as I was that it went viral!”

“I’m overwhelmed with how much love and encouragement surrounds this thing. I think it’s opened up a lot of doors not just for my family but for some great discussion into the supportive role that dad’s play and how moms can support and encourage other moms. Hey if you can’t laugh you cry, putting a humorous spin on serious situations can make a big difference sometimes.”
