Types of Mother's Seen Near the School
While writing my previous article, a thought struck me about the various kind of mothers I talk to in every PTM I go, or sometimes I meet them when I drop my daughter to school. We stay close by to school and hence I drop and pick my daughter every day. Here is my take on a different kind of mother's I see. Kindly, do not be offended and it is all just a fun observation.
So without much ado, here we go.
1. The Fashion Mom
You will never miss the latest trend of dressing this mom comes every day. Every time you meet her, you will be busy staring at all the different shades she has used on her makeup, her clothes, her footwear and what not? Seriously, I have been there and I wonder, how much time and patience it takes? Criticism apart, one need lot of patience for it.
2. Ever energetic mom
I am a mother of one child and a pet. Both together makes me tired in the end of the day. The energetic mom has more children yet she looks as energetic and is always ready for anything. She also looks confident about everything. Hush Hush she goes and there she comes back with her kid. What energy man!!!
3. The Gym mom
The super fit mom who you are always envious of the beautiful toned body. You will see this mom always in the working-out outfit. Talk to her and you will get plenty of do's and dont's for good health. Oh! It's so hard to say no to the yummiest breakfast that awaits at home, so you avoid talking to this mom altogether. Problem solved.
4. The Pajamas Mom
You will see this mom every day in her pajamas or sweatpants and undone hair as if she just got out of bed and came to school. While, we all know that's not the case, but this mom finds either it is difficult to dress up or simply does not care.
5. Always late mom
This mom got too many things on her plate, that she runs late every day. You will see this mom, carrying her child and dropping him/her late, almost by the time the gates are closing. Poor kid, though he/she would have got ready earlier, it's mom who was not ready. This is so me ;-)
6. Memory deficient mom
It's hard to remember everything about everyone in the family, isn't it? This mom forgets almost everything and remembers after dropping the child to school. Runs to shop when she realize her kiddo was supposed to bring an item and hands it over to the security to give it to her child.
7. Volunteer mom
This mom is the one you will see often in all school trips, exhibitions, fundraisers etc as a volunteer. She truly seems so kind and helpful mom but it could be exhausting to find her everywhere. BTW, a couple of times I wanted to volunteer, I had strict warnings from my daughter that I should not be seen anywhere close and she wants to be away from me for at least for a day, Oh! The joy of parenting!!
8. The popular mom
The popular mom is famous and everyone knows her. She is the coolest and all love to talk to her and be around her. Probably she is more likable than her own children.
Parenting is not an easy task, however, it is also a journey that teaches us so many things. So go ahead and tell me what type of mom are you?
