15 times our mothers proved they really know best


You know the saying “mother knows best”? Cliché as it may seem, it’s true that mothers know their way around in this world and how to freaking own the throne in the house like a true KWEEN!

No matter how many women you’ve encountered, you can’t deny that your mom will always be the best woman in your life — your number one and only one. There may be times when they’ll have shortcomings, but as always, they prove that mothers really know best.

1. When your mom knows how to take you down on an argument like she’s the head of the debate team because she’s always right in the end.
