From the worrier to the husband-finder, is your mother worthy of this hilarious Instagram feed?

Kate Siegel first got our attention when she went public on Instagram feed Crazy Jewish Mom, with the somewhat brutal text messages she regularly receives from her keen-to-be-a-granny mother.

From unsolicited life advice to an endless stream of potential husbands (even though Kate has a long-term boyfriend) Mummy Siegel is a force to be reckoned with.

And now, Kate, who lives in Brooklyn and works as a producer at Conde Nast in the States, has scored another hugely popular hit. This time, with the Instagram account Crazy Your Mom.

In the same way Crazy Jewish Mom resonated with women all over the world facing pressure from their parents to get married and get pregnant, on the double, Crazy Your Mom is a place for women everywhere to share hilarious messages from their mothers – Jewish or not.

From so-unfunny-they’re-funny jokes to midnight panics about your whereabouts, do any of these sound familiar?
