10 Signs That You're A Mr. Mom

10 Signs That You're A Mr. Mom

The one that loves you unconditionally, makes all your problems go away, and always has your best interest in heart. Basically a mom; just in dad form.

What is a "Mr. Mom" you ask? He could be a variety of things.

From a single dad, to a stay-at-home dad, and in very unfortunate cases, a widower dad. Everyone knows about the hard work of single moms. Believe me, it should not go unnoticed. However, I think we need to give some credit where credit is due. If one of these ten signs point to you or someone you know, there is a chance that a Mr. Mom is in your life.

1. Mr. Moms are paranoid of who their kids choose to hang out with

Let's be real: All parents get worried about who their children hang around at some point or another. They simply do not want their kids to get involved with the wrong crowd. Mr. Moms are extra protective of their young.

2. Mr. Moms teach life lessons that simply cannot be taught my anyone else.

Whether it's learning to pee on a wall outside of a restaurant or a tip for your next baseball game, he is always there to give some really good advice.

3. Mr. Moms rarely date

The kids could even be pushing for it. "She's good looking dad, you should totally go for it!" But, even though he says, "I really need a woman in my life," every so often, he's probably too busy with his life to squeeze in time for anything else- especially tending to the needs of a female.

4. Mr. Moms always push you to be the best that you can be.

Even when they do not agree with your actions, they will always support you and your dreams.

5. Mr. Moms often question themselves

"Am I doing anything right?" Dads will ask this. Of course, the loving children that we are will always give an uplifting, encouraging response to brighten their mood.

6. Mr. Moms go through a lot of awkward conversations

Kids say the darndest things sometimes.

7. Mr. Moms believe they are "hip" when they clearly are not

The words "cool" and "Dad" should never be put in the same sentence.

8. Mr. Moms consider pizza a fine dining experience

"Oh, the kids just love it," they'll say. But, let's be real: Dads love pizza just as much as we do.

9. Mr. Moms sometimes lose their minds

Patience is a virtue. However, sometimes they're one more spilled drink away from a mental breakdown.

10. Mr. Moms care about their kids more than anything else in the world

Because no matter what the case is, his children will always be his happily ever after.

18 Things That Happen When You Get A Good Roommate

Not every roommate story is a bad one.

Whenever you hear about roommate stories, they're almost never good, and they usually scare you into never wanting a roommate. "Did you hear her roommate steals her clothes?" "Her roommate doesn't shower!" "Wow, her roommate doesn't talk at all, and doesn't do laundry." From what I hear, there are more bad stories than good. That is why I consider myself lucky, because my roommate is nothing like one of those bad stories. When life hands you a good roommate after talking to about 40 girls through Facebook, a few things happen.

1. You always have someone to talk to.

2. You know each other's schedules, and whenever you both have a break is an exciting time.

3. You'll never have to dance alone.

4. You always have someone to do something with, even if it's just walking down the hall.

5. You both look out for each other, because this is your first time without your parents.

6. You always have a shoulder to lean on when things get tough.

7. Borrowing each other's things is a daily thing.

8. You TRY to help with each other's homework and assignments.

9. They're encouraging when it comes to boys. (Unless they're a f*ckboy.)

10. They're your biggest support system and your personal cheerleader.

11. They never forget to wish you luck on a big exam.

12. They accept how gross you are in the morning and not so pleasant sometimes.

13. You both know each other's favorite and least favorite things.

14. Leaving each other notes saying goodbye before class if you don't see them is normal.

15. Saying goodbye for breaks is upsetting.

16. Not seeing them all day is upsetting.

17. You have more pictures together than any of your other friends.

18. You found a best friend for life.

My Mother Is NOT My Best Friend, Because She Is So Much More Than That

I can't thank my mother enough for being the superwoman that she is.


I always find it interesting when people say that their mom is their best friend.

I know what they mean and what they are trying to say, but I personally have never considered my mother simply as my best friend. And if we're being honest, I am not even sure if my mother would truly appreciate being called my best friend.

The bond between a mother and daughter is not something that can be easily described or labeled. A mother's job is hard and I cannot even begin to tell you all the things that my mother has done for me. My mother plays many important roles in my life.

She is my friend.

She is my protector.

She is my supporter.

She is my mentor.

She is my parental figure.

She is the one that gave me life.

She is my person.

She is the first one to yell at me when I do something wrong.

She is the person who will always tell me the truth when I don't want to hear it.

She is my role model.

She is the person who is there when I need her.

She is the person who hasn't left my side since the day I was born.

She is the person who understands and knows me more than anybody.

She is the person who has loved me before I was even born and raised me to be the person that I am.

Without my mother, I don't where I would be.

My mom and I don't always see eye to eye. Sometimes we aggravate each other. And sometimes we don't always like or want to do the same things. But at the end of the day, she is the only person who will sit on the phone with me for hours and just listen me talk about nothing or say every random thought that I have in my head aloud. She provides a sort of unconditional love that cannot be compared to anything in the world. Our bond is unlike any other.

So no, my mom is not my best friend. My mom is my mom. Being a mom is a complex job and shouldn't be shortchanged my being called a best friend.

So thanks mom for being my mom and taking on all these roles in my life. You are one of kind and I am who I am because of all the things you have done for me.
