This mom answered her husband's "What's on your mind?" question with this drawing, and it might just look familiar!

Sometimes, when my husband has to repeat a question for the third time because I still haven't answered him, he will joke that my mind is so loud I can't hear a thing.

It's a great line, and one that perfectly sums up what it's like to be a mom. So I wasn't really surpised when one Reddit user asked his wife what was on her mind and she drew him this in response:

The drawing is your standard mess of thoughts, worries, questions, and doodles that cover everything from student debt and evil kids to Disney and the Doctor Who theme song. Pretty accurate, though my personal faves are "Calendar forever on repeat" and "Organize all the things."

Some of the "thoughts" are pretty hilarious, too, including: "My boobs won't stay in my bra (they betray me)" and "Lose weight, NVM food is awesome, NVM it's the devil."

I really want to know what she crossed out in the lower right hand corner, though.

Regardless, the whole thing is just so awesome. And judging by the comment thread over on Reddit, I'm not the only one who thinks so. The drawing quickly went viral after being posted a few days ago, and has currently been viewed more than 2 million times, with moms everywhere stopping by to lend a quick but emphatic "Oh, HAIL yeah!"

"As a women, all of this yes," wrote one commenter. "Yes so hard it sits on your shoulders and beats your brain like a calypso drum."

"This is fairly calm and organized by all female standards," added another.

And then there's our favorite comment: "YOU GET THAT WOMAN A MILKSHAKE RIGHT NOW."

If only she'd jotted down her favorite flavor.

So, what would your drawing look like?
