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.
