There is no denying that every mother needs a support system. The support should consist of family members and good friends. The best friends that moms can have are other mothers. There is a sense of camaraderie with other women who are going through the phase of raising children. Here is a list of the five types of friends that every mother should have.
The DIY Mom
Who needs Pinterest when you have the DIY mother around? The do it yourself mom knows just about everything there is to know about setting up things on their own. DIY mom can show you how to make drawer organizers out of cardboard that is laying around the home. She also knows just the right things to do for decorations, organization, and other small crafts that can help your sanity.
The Mother Who Hosts Mother’s Nights
All mothers need a break every once in a while. There is always that one mom who knows how to throw mommy breaks and throw them well. Every mom needs the mommy friend who breaks out the great food (or take out) and wine during mom breaks. This mom always has the best Pinot noir or the newest champagne and is ready, willing, and eager to share it with you, sans the kids. This mom is typically the most popular, and with good reason.
The Great Cook Mom
Mom’s all know that cooking can feel like a chore at times. The mom who is a great cook actually relishes the chore of cooking and baking. This mother has great, soft cookies available on hand, bakes the best cakes at the bake sales, and even knows how to make great candy. You want to be friends with this mom because she has excellent recipes to give you, and is always willing to share food with you when you are just not in the mood to make recipes on your own. Your kids always love her house as well, because they know to look forward to great treats.
The Mom Who is True Blue
Everyone has those girlfriends who are always around for you no matter what. They are available when you call them in the middle of the night crying, they are there to share in your excitement, and they are there just to share in your everyday life. Every woman, especially moms, need to have that one true blue friend in their corner. Having this friend to lean on, and being this type of friend for others makes all of the days of your life just a little bit brighter.
The Mom with Children Who are Older
When you are knee deep into raising kids, you sometimes feel that you will be wiping noses and kissing booboos forever. The mom who has the older children will remind you to hold out hope for tomorrow. Older moms can have their children help with their household chores, are able to leave their children alone for several hours, and best of all, have more time for themselves. The mom with older kids reminds you to hang in there. Better days are on their way!
