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

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

I'm basically the soccer mom of the Millennials.


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!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
