Hilarious Thread Between A Woman And Her Son Reminded Us African Moms Are The Best At Being Extra AF

"Use a full stop where appropriate."

A viral Whatsapp conversation between an African mother and her son has reminded everyone that no one does the most quite like an African mom. 

Twitter user @Anjolaa__took screenshots of the conversation, which took place on her mother's birthday. When @Anjolaa's younger brother, Tunmise, attempted to wish his mother a happy birthday, his mother made sure to let him know exactly how she wishes to be adorned. 

  1. Tunmise thought he could get away with simply wishing his mother "long life and prosperity"
  2. Tunmise's mother then encouraged her son to describe his love for her with more emotion
  3. When Tunmise tried to follow his mother's wishes, she hit him back with grammatical corrections
  4. Finally, Tunmise's mother wrote her own birthday message to herself
  5. For some, the correspondence hit too close to home
  6. Although Tunmise's mother was a little over the top, many people agreed that it came from a place of love
