What is it about Target? We just love it. It’s like the Mom Headquarters. Where else can you buy groceries, clothe your entire family, decorate your house and get a Tall Carmel Macchiato? Nowhere, my friends.
It was so fun to list the 5 Types of Moms You See At Preschool Drop Off that I thought we’d do it again! If you visit Target enough, you will see every one of these types of moms. Maybe even in just one visit.
The 4 Types of Moms You See At Target
I’m Never Bringing You Here Again Mom – She knew it was probably a bad idea to bring the twins here on a day they refused a nap but they had to endure. They were out of Go Go Squeeze and since right now that’s the only thing these picky eaters will consume, she made the trip. By the time she’s done, all three of them have shed at least one tear and she’s somehow been coerced into buying two Captain America action figures.
Dinosaur Mom – I call her the dinosaur mom because you thought she was extinct. I did, too. She has five children with her under the age of 8 and they’re all behaving well. She isn’t frazzled and the kids all look calm and happy. I stare at her. I want to run to her, beg her for the secrets she holds and ask her how she managed to survive extinction.
I Left The Kids At Home Mom – She’s free. She left the kids at home with dad under the premise she needed only a handful of items. In reality, she plans to peruse every single department, stop at Starbucks, and maybe just sit in the car for a good while.
Expecting Mom – She has no idea what’s coming. Right now she is slowly making her way through each aisle of the baby section, taking her time and daydreaming about her future child. She’s excited, hopeful and completely optimistic. If all goes to plan, soon she will transform into Dinosaur Mom. We wish her luck.
