As the weather gets warmer and we are logging more park hours, I am reflecting back on this post… thinking it may be time for a Part II of “I AM NOT THIS MOM– Identifying MORE Creatures of the Momosphere.” Your thoughts?


Remember back in high school when the cafeteria was separated by type? As in… the cheerleader type, the nerdy type, the athletic type, the burnout type, the trenchcoat type. And each type or “clique,” or group, or whatever you want to call it, was unmistakable not only by outward appearance, but also the ultimate hierarchical tool –location of their lunch table. Of course there were those who claimed independent, but we called them the “floater” type. They were welcome at anyone’s table… but not for longer than 10 minutes at a time before they floated elsewhere.

She is very much like over prepared mom but typically she is in very good shape and all cloths are purchased at full price from REI, LL Bean or Land’s End. Her kids are typically slightly pudgy. She will go on about organic this and that and lecture other moms, but her pudgy kids belie the level of overindulgence of organic M&M’s ;).

On the upside, she smells a great deal better than granola, patchouli mom;).
