You Know You're The "Mom" Friend When..

I guess what I'm trying to say is that being the "mom" friend isn't always a bad thing.

You Know You're The "Mom" Friend When..
Maranda Cooper

We all have this one friend who's like the "mom" of the group. Whether that's the person who gives you advice, helps you with your homework, drives you home from a party drunk, or tries to baby you when you're sick. If you're like me, then you're the "mom friend" of the group and this is how it seems to go:

1. There are so many people who have your number for such odd reasons.

Oh, you want to know why your dog is sick so you call me? Well, let's try to figure this out.

2. People always come to you for advice, whether you're close with them or not.

It's like they never question whether they trust you or not... just that they know they can.

3. You're the person they call when they're all drunk.

*phone rings at 3:00 am* "Hey, can you come get us? Our designated driver started drinking when we got here." If you're lucky like me, though, they automatically know they'll need you and you can go to the party to get in all the pictures and snapchats.

4. People always came to you when they needed something for a headache or a cough during school.

You never left without it, because you never know when someone walking down the hall would need that Advil or a cough drop.

5. People who barely know you know that you're "that friend."

"That" friend will always try to save the day.

6. When something was wrong or someone was hurt, you'd be one of the first ones to find out.

I'm going to school to be a nurse, I'm not there... yet; but since I'm already here, let me see if there's anything I can do to help.

7. You always kept the necessities on you at all times.

Necessities: gum, chapstick, a pen, a lighter, makeup, something to drink, a snack, and a few dollars.

8. You were the person your friend's parents always loved... so you always had to be the cover up.

"Hey, I'm telling my mom that I'm going to the movies with you but really I'm going with that guy from the fourth period."

9. When push comes to shove, you have a lot of friends in high and low places.

You can go anywhere and know anyone. Someone will ALWAYS have your back and they will always remember what you did for them.

10. Lastly, when you're given the option NOT to be the mom friend for the night... you're insulted.

You wouldn't trade your "mom" life for anything. It's a good feeling knowing you're the reason they got home safe, survived a mental breakdown, and were able to eat lunch that day.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that being the "mom" friend isn't always a bad thing. It means they trust you, you're a good person, and they know that you're dependable. Be grateful they chose you!!
