When Avery Leilani attended the Texas State freshman orientation day with her mother, she probably expected it to go down like the movies: Embarrassing moments unpacking luggage; a cringe-worthy ‘meeting the room mate’ conversation; and the trying-not-to-be tearful goodbyes.
What she probably wasn’t expecting was for her mum to make friends with the entire college football team.
Leilani was probably doing something sensible – like finding the library or introducing herself to future teachers – when she received a message from her mother who’d gone wandering.
“I made some friends. Don’t wait up,” the message said.
The accompanying photographs were of Mrs Leilani surrounded by a handful of shirtless football players.

The new college student posted a screenshot of the exchange to Twitter and the images soon went viral.
If that’s not #mumgoals, we don’t know what is.
