Real Moms Meme

I love this one, and found it over at It Coulda' Been Worse. So, in my own experience....

1. Real Moms are the ones who smile nostalgically when they see a first time pregnant woman. Real Moms can tell, by the way.

2. Real Moms will be sympathetic when your toddler has a meltdown in the checkout isle.

3. Real Moms usually have more items belonging to others than themselves in their purses.

4. Real Moms know the value of a well timed bribe.

5. Real Moms also know the value of a well timed nap. (For the kids, or themself)

6. Real Moms can sprint like an Olympic medalist even when pregnant or injured if they believe their child to be in danger.

7. Real Moms get more excited about sales on fruit snacks than new clothes for themselves.

8. Real Moms never stop trying to be a better parent each day.

9. Real Moms grieve and hug their own little ones a bit tighter whenever another mother loses her child- whatever the reason, it's heartbreaking.

This one just makes me sad, being a Real Mom in Limbo.
