If you picked mostly A’s:
The Hip Mom – You’re a superstar. You’re juggling work, raising a family, and helping your friends, flawlessly. Your kids are constantly dressed as if they just walked out of a magazine, and are well behaved (well, in front of everyone besides you but no one has to know). You know what you want and don’t let anything stop you from going after it.
If you picked mostly B’s:
The Best Friend Mom – You and your kids are best friends – for real. Your friends call you crazy, but you honestly enjoy playing with their toys just as much as they do. And while you know the line between discipline and friendship, you celebrate having a fun and close connection with your little ones.
If you picked mostly C’s:
The Relaxed Mom – your kids are fighting with each other over how to pronounce the word “scribble”? That’s ok, it’s normal. You go with the flow and embrace bumps in the road with open arms. If things don’t go according to plan, you are able to calmly and effortlessly come up with something else. Your friends admire how carefree you are and know they can count on you for unbiased and helpful advice.
