Some of the other PTA moms and I were laughing about mom stereotypes the other day during the big holiday festival planning meeting. We were all throwing out some of the most common mom stereotypes that we hear. It was all fun and games until it became clear that most of us fit at least a few of those stereotypes. Honestly, it didn’t bother me at all. I’m all about the mom stereotypes these days. I have bigger things to worry about…like where exactly I hid that last box of Girl Scout cookies…
1. 75% of the pants in my closet are leggings or yoga pants. Ok, fine. 90%. What? They’re comfortable. #sorrynotsorry
2. I have an infinite amount of love for the Pumpkin Spice Latte. I don’t care how cliche that might be. From September to January the only think I drink at both Starbucks and DD is Pumpkin Spice. The only creamer I buy is Pumpkin Spice.
3. My number one beauty product is dry shampoo. I might run out of everything else but I will never deplete my supply of dry shampoo.
4. My go to hairstyle is the messy bun. Emphasis on the messy.
5. My week is not complete without a random trip to Target where I spend 3 times as much money as I planned and come home without anything on my list. Usually toilet paper and laundry detergent.
I’m a stereotype. I’ve accepted this about myself.
