A while ago I found this article about Slacker Moms vs Alpha Moms. As I read it, I noted I was a mix of both. Meaning, as an Alpha Mom I desired nothing but the very best for my child and always made sure her socks matched before we walked out of the house. I brush her teeth, comb her hair, give her one nap a day, three meals a day and read to her everyday.
On the other side, the slacker mom in me is relaxed and lets certain things be as they are and refuses to follow a set schedule. The slacker in me lets my daughter watch cartoons, splash all of the water out of the tub during her bath and nurse whenever she lays eyes on her boppy pillow.
I'm sure if I had to pick, I'd claim myself as a slacker mom, but the word slacker brings to mind a mom that doesn't care. Slacker makes me think lazy rather than laid back. Slacker sounds like a label.
Why don't you just observe my parenting ability and simply call me: Mom.
