We’re not cool. That’s something that our kids helpfully remind us all the time. But do you ever get those days where you just don’t feel like being the overworked/underappreciated/exhausted/food-covered/bedraggled mom and just feel like being the devil-may-care chill mom? So do we. So we put together a few easy ways to fake being a cool mom, without actually having to change anything about your life. After all, what’s cooler than not trying?
Cool Mom Tip #1: Carry a Tiny Purse
Ordinary hardworking moms carry everything under the sun in their giant purse, from snack bars to life preservers. But cool moms get by with just a phone and lipstick, because they’re low-maintenance. Who cares if your real purse is overflowing in the front seat of the car, you’ll fool everyone in Starbucks with your doll-sized handbag.
Cool Mom Tip #2: Act Aloof
When someone asks how your kids are, just say ‘they’re well’ instead of pulling out your phone to show them 30,000 pictures. Regular moms want to show off every little accomplishment because we know our kids are perfect and amazing creatures. Cool moms don’t tell anyone about anything. Ever.
Cool Mom Tip #3: Wear An Insane Accessory
Capes! Leather anklets! Tiaras! All of these are things that a cool hip mom would wear to a PTA meeting to show how cool and carefree she is. Are you going to feel like an idiot all day? Absolutely. But will it seem like you know something that the less fashion-forward moms don’t? You betcha.
Cool Mom Tip #4: Spice Up Your Phone Conversations
Sure, it’s just your boring old spouse calling. But when you loudly answer with ‘what time is it where you are, darling?’ everyone will assume you have friends in other countries. Learn another language in high school? Just randomly insert a sentence of French or Spanish before you hang up. Instant cool.
Cool Mom Tip #5: Just Put It On Your Shirt
If all else fails, you can write it across your chest. And it just so happens that we have super soft slouchy tees that proclaim it to the whole world. You can buy it for yourself, or buy it for a cool mom you know who could us a pick-me-up. Either way it’s cozy, comfy, and maybe even a little sexy.
Get your shirt here, and enjoy your newfound cool.
