We try so hard not to turn into that mom. BUT WHY?
Being that mom is fun.
Look, your kids are going to be humiliated by you no matter what you do so why don’t you go for it with some gusto? Have a little flair!
These 10 mom moves are proven to torture your teens and give them plenty to roll their eyes at. They’ll miss all of your pizzazz when you’re dead (#7).
1. Cheer for them loudly
Not just at sporting events--I cheer for my son whenever he does anything good. "Yaaaaaaay, Sam!"
2. Make them numerous playlists
Then quiz them on the playlists, sing excerpts, and blare the songs while driving with the windows down. You didn't play Mozart for them in the womb for nothing.
3. Get presents for their friends
"I saw this at Sears and it made me think of you."
Dance for them, with them, in front of them and AT them.
5. Borrow and wear their clothes
It really messes with their ego when you convey: I like this. I would wear it. I AM wearing it.
6. Rearrange their rooms
This is a nice little move they hate. It starts with "Surprise!" and ends with "Ta-duh!"
7. Refer to When I'm Dead often
Induce guilt while scaring them and making them excited for life without you: Win. Win. WIN.
8. Tag them in all your family photos on Facebook
That way their friends can see the pictures and all your cute comments.
9. emind them not just that they came out of you, but that YOU came out of GRANDMA
It is likely they will never forget it.
10. Blog about them
You think it's a fitting tribute. They think it's torture.
Have a great day!
