27 Things You've Said If You're The Mom Friend

I'm basically the soccer mom of the Millennials.

27 Things You've Said If You're The Mom Friend

My mom is awesome. She's strong and not afraid to speak her mind. I've inherited both of those traits from her. I have also inherited the "mom" gene. This doesn't mean I'm baby crazy or anything like that. No, the "mom" gene is the gene that makes you "mom" everyone. You may not even know you're doing it until your friends say "Thanks, Mom." Being the "Mom" of your friend group isn't about the big gestures it's about the little things you do and say.

1. I'll make/bring food

2. Did you get your homework done?

I just don't feel right asking you to go get food if you don't have it done. School first.

3. You don't feel like you have a fever

Being the mom friend basically, means you're a doctor. Need Advil? Got it! Need allergy meds? No worries! Need Gatorade? I have that too.

4. You might want a jacket.

5. Good luck today!

6. I have that!

This could refer to the 10 million things I keep in my Mary Poppins bag. Bobbi pins, Band-aids, a stapler, or anything else you may need.

7. We can take my car.

To make my mom status even more awesome, I should tell you I drive a mini-van.

8. You probably shouldn't jump off of that.

9. Have you eaten today?

That's probably why you're grouchy.

10. What do you mean you don't have insurance?

11. Well, what time did you go to bed?

You wouldn't be tired if you went to bed before 3 AM.

12. Take a nap. You'll feel better.

13. Don't forget your keys!

They're on the kitchen table.

14. Do you actually need that?

I'm just trying to keep you from spending money we both know you don't have.

15. Because I said so.

16. Stop.

17. What's wrong?

We mom's are the best listeners.

18. Don't touch that.

19. Don't talk with your mouth full.

Maybe the most mom thing we say.

20. How was practice?

21. Yes, you can use my ironing board.

I also have interview questions, because let's be honest that's the only reason you're ironing your clothes.

22. I'm going to the store, do you need anything?

To be clear, by store, I mean Target.

23. Don't talk to strangers.

24. I can sew that button back on.

Just let me grab my needles and thread.

25. How are you and *whoever you're talking to?

26. Yes, I have food.

Yes, always. Chances are if by some craziness I don't, I'll make some.

27. Drive safe! Let me know when you get there!

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
