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!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
