Massachusetts Mom and Wife Goes Viral With Hilarious Instagram Comics
Having humor in life as a mom and wife definitely takes a bit of vulnerability and gumption. After all, laughter is the best medicine even while trying to change the narrative, or at least even it out.
Meet Mary Catherine Starr, who lives on Cape Cod in Barnstable, Massachusetts.
I literally stumbled upon her hilarious comics on Instagram @momlife_comics, and had to reach out to her.
These these comics can't help but elicit a smile and giggle because they're so true, whether you've experienced it yourself or know someone who has.
Basically, Mary Catherine illustrates in a fun, yet poignant way how different life can be for moms versus dads, as well as moms versus other moms and parents. She says the relatability of it wasn't something she expected to go viral, and loves that it's making so many laugh.
"I started posting personal anecdotes on my personal Instagram account just as the pandemic hit, then turned them into comics to have a little more fun with the therapeutic posts. The response was amazing, and I loved that the therapeutic outlet for myself was actually the same for others."
Friends and family were sharing Mary Catherine's comics so much that she decided to create an account solely for them. @momlife_comics was born in July of 2021 after Mary Catherine started it during stay-at-home just to pass the time with some humor and fun.
Even the Huffington Post picked up on her humor with relevancy. This married mom of two says that she often shows the comics to her husband before she posts, and usually gets a big laugh and a "yup, that's true" out of him.
