1. Fancy Mom
She's in high heels, her makeup looks perfect, and you really want to know where she bought her clothes. You envy the fact she can run after her kids in a dress and still manage to look like a gazillion bucks.
2. Pajama Mom
She's comfy, cozy, and maybe doesn't match, but she doesn't care. She gives you ideas on what sweats would look best with what t-shirt.
3. Always Coffee In Hand Mom
She's the envy of every tired parent at the playground because she always has her cup of Joe. But it does make some wonder ... is it really coffee?
4. Cell Phone Mom
This mama cannot deconnect from her phone -- talking or texting or scrolling. Maybe it's for work, maybe it's some social network, maybe she's reading the mobile version of a magazine, but she's on the phone so much you start to believe she does have eyes on the back of her head.
5. Photo Taking Mom
This mom must have full photo albums for each day because she's snapping a picture from every angle, for every step her little one takes.
6. "Ack! Where Are My Kids?!" Mom
Let's just say this mom isn't paying a lot of attention to her kids.
7. Hovering Mom
And let's just say this mom is the definition of a helicopter parent, not letting her child take one step without being rightherenexttoher.
8. Peter Pan Mom
Fun, free-spirited mom isn't afraid to slide down the slide, get sand in her toes while building sand castles, and really get into playing at the park.
9. Loner Mom
This type makes no eye contact, and never smiles at the other parents. It's clear she doesn't want to be involved with even the smallest of talk.
10. Super Friendly Mom
Quick to smile and say hello, Super Friendly Mom remembers how old your kids are and even their names. She's the mom who will text you asking for playdates.
11. Entourage Mom
This mom rolls with at least two other moms wherever she goes. It's hard to tell whose kid belongs to who in this group but they're tight and are like the cool kids in the lunchroom.
I think I've been every one of these moms at one time or another. Even Loner Mom ... on those super cranky days.
Which type(s) of mom do you think you are? What other types of moms have you run into at the playground?
Probably loner mom and Peter Pan mom lol.
