Moms are in their ‘TTPD’ era and we are *so* here for it

Taylor Swift’s behemoth new album The Tortured Poets Department has been out for a week now, and as we’ve all spent countless hours digesting its 31 tracks (and deciphering just how many are about Matty Healy. WHAT DID HE DO TO YOU, TAYLOR?!), it turns out that heartbreak and parenting have more parallels than one might think.

Moms have been flocking to Instagram to create hilarious content using some choice lyrics from the album. One that’s extremely relatable to motherhood comes from the chorus of “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart,” when Taylor sings: “I cry a lot but I am so productive, it’s an art.” (I’ve never felt more seen!)

Another that’s been receiving a lot of attention in the parenting world, and for obvious reason, is the bridge to “But Daddy I Love Him” where Taylor declares, “I’ll tell you something right now/ I’d rather burn my whole life down/ Than listen to one more second of all this b—ing and moaning.” Speculation around the song is that it’s a fiery retort to Swifties who were against her relationship with Healy, but this particular line speaks to parents, too.

Instagrammer Annalee Grace (@annalee15) used the song for a meme that would be hilarious if it wasn’t so true. “Moms getting screamed at after spending all morning getting everyone dressed, fed, and out the door to go make ‘fun family memories’” she wrote on a reel of her at her wit’s end while in the driver’s seat of the car.

“This lyric really resonates for this exact reason for me too lmao” another mom commented on the post.

“The satisfaction I get from screaming this lyric is unlike any other,” wrote another. Honestly, same.

Other moms took the chance to use the album release as a way to joke about how TTPD hits you in the feels even if you’re in a loving marriage.

Instagrammer Alexandra Cunningham (@thisfamilytree) shared a hilarious reel of her batting her husband’s hand away and eventually leaving with a suitcase while “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived” plays in the background. “POV: You’re happily married but Taylor Swift has a new album out” she wrote on the video, adding in the caption: “Breaking up this weekend so i can really feel this album in full.”

It’s clear that moms are fully in their TTPD era and we are *so* here for it. (But seriously, what did Matty Healy do to you, Taylor?!)
