5 Types of Women Who Will Always Have a Place In My Tribe

In the Land Of Mom a good friend is pure gold and key to surviving parenthood.  When you find your Tribe rejoice!  It is these women who will remind you what day it is, shuffle your kids around town and hold your hair back for you if you should drink too much wine at Book Club.  Cherish these friendships as I cherish women who fit into any combination of the below categories, for they are my Tribe.


The Swearing and Slightly Vulgar Moms

I can pretty much strike up a conversation with any mom at a park, school, or birthday party.  It doesn’t matter if I have known you for a minute, a day, or ten years, what you see if what you get with me.  It’s a gift and a curse my friends.  While making small talk I might complain about my husband, roll my eyes at my children and curse a time or two…or ten.  If this makes you uncomfortable I understand, I am not everyone’s cup of tea.  Feel free to duck and run next time you see me.  Chances are I will be too frazzled to even notice the slight.

Now on the other hand if we are chatting and you happen to start ranting about how much you want to punch Caillou in his ugly little face my eyes may start welling up with tears.  They are tears of joy believe me.  Nothing makes me happier than finding a mom needing to bitch about that little nightmare while hurling a few swear words around.  If you pull wine out of that purse of yours I swear I will barrel hug you right here in the middle of the playground.  I will be yours FOREVER.

The Target Three Days A Week Moms

What is there even to say about these friendships.  I love Target.  You love Target.  It is kind of a match made in heaven already.  We can hang out all of the time since we both frequent this place a few days a week.  Just think how happy we will be skipping through the aisles of crap we do not need while sipping our Starbucks Lattes.

  1. High five girl!!!!! I believe that after I became a mom I starting swearing more and more every day…. lol .. my husband thinks is funny hearing me swear … I don’t know why or maybe is because I swear in Spanish most of the time. Target, what can I say…. my closest one is almost a 30 min drive …. I have every other store close by but, Target is my hot spot. Love your post, thanks for sharing with #alittlebitofeverything

  2. Ha! This is so funny! I totally swear now that my kids are teens. They get so shocked when I do because they never really heard it before, but heck…they’re moody/sassy teens and it comes out 🙂

  3. I have three amazing mum friends and one of those is a sweary and more than slightly vulgar one, she’s just amazing. Alongside my blogging mum friend who can a bargain anywhere and my completely together, always arrives with home baked cakes friend I am well set 🙂 #CoolMumClub

  4. I bonded with one of my fave mummy-crew when we both spat out our tea at a play date when someone yelled ‘stop banging that bush!’ #BFFs for life 😉
    Thanks for sharing with #coolmumclub
    All hail the sweary vulgar Mums who make us LAUGH through the days

  5. I feel you and I would be good friends. I like to drink on Tuesdays, usually from the wine in my bag, and am forever moaning about my other half and pain in the butt kids! Cause, ya know, I am so bloody perfect 😃 Thanks for joining us at #familyfun x

  6. haha yes what is it with Target, I wonder in and never come out without spending!!! I end up in every section. A group of school mums and I have tried to always work our schedules to have Friday mornings free, we get coffee, eat and then usually wind up in Target. I think I spend my Friday pay before I get to work! #anythinggoes

  7. You sound like a very refreshing Mum. And an honest one. Be who you are and be proud. Can’t stand people who pretend they aren’t what they are. Here’s to you!

  8. I happen to think I’m a little bit of each of these moms. If we lived closer, you would always be welcome at my house for a cocktail or a glass of wine.

  9. It’s great when you find your mum tribe and people you click with. I wish I was as bold as you to strike up a conversation with anyone. Thanks for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x

  10. Haha. Your tribe sounds like a lot of fun! It’s easy to loose your personality in the shadow of being a mom. I’m so glad you that you are encouraging moms to enhance their personalities with it instead. 🙂

  11. Definitely a sweary Mum – not always intentional, but it just kinda happens!!! Thanks so much for linking up to #TriumphantTales, we’d love to have you back next week 🙂
