Types of friends all mothers should have
If you are a mother, these are some of the types of friends you should have to feel fulfilled.
Every mother in the world does not have to be alone , because to raise children you need an entire tribe. They say that friendship is as important to our well-being as eating well and exercising, and this does not change when you become a mom. In fact, we dare to say that you need your friends now more than ever.
From play dates, to childcare rewards, resource sharing, and emotional support, every mother needs a village, a tribe, people around her that she can trust. Fellow moms you can laugh with when you run into tantrums and true friends you can lean on, parenting and life must be tough.
There are a type of friends that can never be absent around you, do you have them?
TYPES OF FRIENDS THAT YOU CANNOT MISS
THE ORGANIC MOM
This mom says everything has to be organic. She is a passionate and knowledgeable mother of everything that is natural, organic, and plant-based . She will remind you that breastfeeding is best, homemade baby puree is better than store bought, Meatless Monday is one thing, and parabens are not an option.
While you may not follow all of her advice, she will inspire you to become a more mindful mom, which is definitely something all moms can strive for.
THE UNFILTERED MOM.
Let’s face it, motherhood is not easy. And, it doesn’t help the “sweet stuff” cover it. Sometimes you need an honest opinion or a jolt to get back to reality, which is exactly what the unfiltered mother will give you . Sometimes their opinions and advice can be a bitter pill to swallow, but at the end of the day, you will benefit from having someone “tell you how she is” as you walk on your parenting journey.
THE ‘ANYTHING GOES’ MOM
True to her name, when it comes to this type of mom-friend, ‘anything goes’ … She follows her children’s lead and is more concerned about their happiness and getting through the day … What to watch out for milestones , sleeping schedules and sticking to a rigid routine. This mom will encourage you to settle down and pursue happiness, not perfection, when it comes to raising your children.
THE MOM WHO HAS DONE EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU
This mom has been through the trenches of parenthood. She has breastfed, removed diapers, knows what goes on in schools, and is past her children’s adolescence! She “gets it” and as she talks to you about the ups and downs of parenting, she’ll make sure to remind you to take it all in, because it really happens in the blink of an eye!
Parenting is a full time job . And no, we don’t mean eight to four. Or even nine to five. It is literally a 24/7 – 365 job, leaving little room for anything else; like hanging out with friends (or, shaving our legs). The online mom realizes that and is happy to chat with you on WhatsApp. She’s the kind of low-maintenance friend you can message when you have a problem, it can take days to respond, and she never pushes you if you don’t have time to see her in person.
No matter where you meet these types of friends, what matters is that if you find them, stick with them, because they are undoubtedly important in your life. Do you already have these kinds of friends in your life?
