In the time of an outbreak, our true mom colors show. Some for better, some for worse!
I found these types of crisis mom descriptions floating around on social media.
They’re pretty accurate + I’m sharing them here as a fun way to lighten the mental load of crisis prep for us moms for a minute!
Well-educated, professional mothers who have been prepared for the pandemic since they first heard about it on NPR during their morning commute.
She has contingency plans for childcare + a plumber installing bidets on all of their toilets. But, just in case, she also has a stockpile of Charmin.
Stay-at-home mom with multiple children. She is calm + rational + has her home well stocked with enough food + supplies to last them several weeks.
She is on her way to Trader Joe’s (with a face mask + freshly washed hands, of course) for more frozen vegetables.
Just realized yesterday that this might mean she has to stay at home with her children for weeks on end without any adult conversation other than her spouse. She is now afraid for her mental stability.
Disney Plus, wine + Target delivery services will be her only hope.
Part-time mother + homeschooler, she’s promoting her self-empowerment + business on Insta stories. Her home is filled with the heavenly scent of essential oils + her fruit + vegetables are soaking in the sink.
Currently googling how to make organic hand sanitizer for her non-vaccinated, vegetarian children.
They have firmly placed themselves in the “f**k it” zone. She does not give a sh*t about the threat of Covid-19 or whatever else it is at the moment + will continue on with life as if everything were normal.
She will be the mom willing to host play dates during quarantine + will definitely have wine to share when you run out.
The organically-minded work-inside-the-home entrepreneur, she’s continuing to live life as normal save for duplicating her Whole Foods delivery order.
She’s actually loving the idea of quarantine — it’s more hours of family activities in her Lululemons + all the more reason to whip out that charcoal face mask for some extra TLC.
So, what type of crisis mom are you?
I may have added my own hybrid option to the list… 😉
