Moms have taken over the internet, and they're showing the fun side of parenting

May 8 is Mother’s Day, so in honor of mothers and mother figures everywhere of all kinds, The Show took a look at mom memes.

If you’re on the internet these days, it’s hard to miss the popularity of moms — in memes, in blogs, on Instagram, on TikTok and more. As Amanda Kehrberg says, moms are the new cats of the internet.

Kehrberg teaches media studies at Arizona State University.

The Show spoke with her to learn how moms sprang into popularity, beginning with more about the role of moms in internet history, from mommy bloggers to today.
