The 13 Moms in Every Moms Group

Which one are you? (We're No. 2)

The 21st-century moms group: great for mutual support, rampant insecurity assurance and endless email chains about preschool ratings and poop consistency. Here, the 13 characters you probably can’t avoid.


The Overachiever

She just made partner at her law firm, her six-month-old is crawling at a nine-month-old level and she totally purees her own Bartlett-quinoa-yam mash. (And ugh, it’s freaking delicious.)

There's no place in her house that isn't encrusted with Cheerio dust (and she may or may not skip library story time to watch Real Housewives).


The Helicopter Mom

"Tyler, is that a truck? Tyler, are you picking up the truck? Tyler, do NOT put that truck in your mouth!"

The Free-range Parent

The Yuppie

Uppababy Vista and Stokke high chair not included.

The Old Mom

The Nanny

Who is secretly a more competent human than any of us will ever be.


The Dilf
