Seeking My Mom Tribe: ‘I Need to Know I’m Not in This Alone’

Where do I go to find my mom tribe?


Is there some secret initiation at Chick-Fil-A in the middle of the lunch rush? Or, do I just show up to the park on a Saturday?

How do I go about finding moms like me?

The moms who don’t wash their hair for 5 days, wear mismatched pajamas around their house and have decided to only wear makeup when absolutely necessary. And no, trips to Target no longer warrant a full face, even though I’m certain I’ll see everyone I know.

The moms who love their kids more than life one minute, and would happily donate them to any willing stranger the next! Oh, you think they’re cute? Well, take them with you. Trust me, you will bring them back, especially the little one.

The moms who plan perfect park days, aquarium days and museum days in their heads, and then are too tired and too stressed to actually see them through. Just the anxiety of imagining all of the things that could go wrong while you’re out alone in a large public place with them is enough to keep you at home all day.

The moms who desperately want to lose weight, but find so much happiness and stress relief inside of a Krispy Kreme box. In my feelings challenge…more like eat my feelings challenge. KK, do you love me?! Because I love you too much to ever let you go!
