Yes. I'm THAT mom.

Real Estate Agent with Hollish Hill Group, KW Capital Properties

Are you THAT mom?

I know I AM and I have no shame about it. My kids know it too. They roll their eyes, but have learned to accept it. And truthfully, all the other kids in the neighborhood know that I'm THAT Mom. While none of them like it, they seem to be glad it's not their mom who is THAT mom.First Day of School 2019

I mean, most of their moms allow them some sense of privacy by doing it at home alone in an awkward, but less public way. 


You know what I mean don't you?

I'm THAT mom. The one who makes all the kids pose together to take a First Day of School Picture.


Yes, year after year, it's me. And now they just do it. They groan and pose and dash for the bus.


So, are you THAT Mom on the First Day of School?

Hi Dana,
I love that your kids take the bus to school. So many parents drive their kids to and from school these days. Such a waste of fuel and the kids miss out a whole 'nother opportunity for interaction with their peers.

Hi Dana - while I am not that Mom or even a parent of any kind, I do remember taking the bus to elementary school and waiting in anticipation as Summer drew to a close and another school year began.

Hi Dana Hollish Hill while I am not that "mom" my daugher is. She lives in Arizona and I'm in California.  I have seen every first day of school for my grandaughter who is now in the 7th grade and next year her brother will be starting kindergarten so I'm sure the tradition will continue.

Judging by all the photos on Social Media sites of late, "That Mom," is everywhere. You are not alone. And some of us are "that grandma."
