Are you..

A "pretty mom" : one who is like an OC house wife all about the looks, having money and the body?


A "casual mom" : one who doesn't really "care" about how you look, or the lables you wear or working out?

And what do you think of the "other" mom?

  • I am the OC mom on the weekends when I go out and the casual mom during the week. I work out four or five days a week and wear makeup on the weekend. I feel better working out and probably scare other moms at dropoff and pickup at school during the week!

  • I guess I am a little of both. I am casual most of the time but I clean up well. I like labels, but not the audaciously expensive ones. I'll pay $60 for a nice pair of pants that will last a while but not $120. I try not to judge other moms as best I can. If I think a mom cares more about her clothes than her child then I think that is sad. But it's rare that I get that feeling even amongst the most polished mothers.

  • Oh I'm an OC mom.
    I don't feel the same without doing my hair, make-up and dressing to the nine's.
    No matter where I go. I always get my workout in so I can have my amazing body.
    I make sure that my daughter is even better dressed than I'am.
    All about the life-style :)
    And the SO appreciates that I care about how I look. And I have to say I do it for him and myself.
    I feel more sexy and confident looking like in just walked out of a magazine :)

    And if another mom isn't the same, I don't really care.. to each their own :)

  • I am both. I think you can have money and look nice and still be casual.

  • I'm a frumpy mom who wears hoodies and lives on 2 pairs of jeans. I haven't bought a new bra in months..I don't know how to do my hair and I don't know how to put makeup on. So I wear foundation and powder. My THICK hair is in a constant ponytail..I swear I could be a perfect candidate for a makeover show!!!
