Within the vast world of text messages, there exists the sub-world of mom texts. These messages are quintessentially mother-y, whether they're exhibiting an unfamiliarity with technology or subtly deploying a dose of guilt. They are also identifiable by the length of time it takes for the message to be written, which is rarely under three minutes. These texts exemplify the variety of messages moms all over the world are sending, often accidentally.
