I know, I know. I can already feel you rolling your eyes at the title of this post but just hear me out. Having been a dog mom first, I can honestly say there are distinct similarities between having a dog and have a child.
Nostalgia Alert: If you were a child in the 90's, chances are you watched every single one of the following titles and it will make you long for a VCR to watch them all over again. There is good news though! While I may not be able to enjoy these on VHS (what's that, right?) I have been able to find them on DVD and I cannot wait to introduce my kids to a few of my favorite movies and specials.
Before I became a mom I didn't know there were so many ways to mom. You can be a helicopter mom, a tiger mom, a free-range mom (what are were? Chickens?) or an attached mom. What the heck does it even mean to be "crunchy" anyway? I had no idea there were this many categories when it came to parenting and now, I have no idea which mold I fit into.
Much like the #MomOn Yoplait commercial this video that has been circulating on Facebook lately talks about all of the different "groups" moms fall into in a hilarious tongue meet cheek way. All of the stereotypical mom groups are represented; stay at home mom, formula-feeding mom, breast-feeding mom, working mom, all-natural moms - you name it, the mom group is covered, I see you stay at home dads. Now, not to spoil it for you but the end takes an unexpectedly, dark turn that brings all of the groups together just further illustrating it doesn't matter what type of mom you are, we are all moms (and dads). So be nice to the mom you meet that is moming differently than you.
Take a look at the video (remember it is meant to be FUNNY) and let me know your thoughts!
I'm sure we've all seen the Yoplait #MomOn commercial by now that cuts to different moms talking about the way they mom. I have to give it up to Yoplait because the first time I saw this commercial I thought it was awesome. I'm not sure which part I could relate to more; being cool with formula feeding, drinking wine or not eating "cage-free, Norwegian, hemp-milk", the extended version even mentions Yoga pants! Any way you want to mom is OK! We have to be easier on one another and I think Yoplait did a great job with this ad.
Here is the extended version for your viewing pleasure that can be found on Yoplait's Youtube channel. Enjoy.
