Top 5 Ways to Fake It

Get your mind out of the gutter. All Mom-tested, Mom•Logic-approved ways to convince other Moms you've got your act together.

1. Hit the Carwash.
Never underestimate the power of shiny wheels.

2. Manicure.
The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but the fingernails are the windows to the chaos.

3. Lie, lie, lie.
When other Moms share all they have to do, say "I've already done that" with a smug attitude.

4. Homemade baked goods (not necessarily from scratch).
Carbs and sugar make anyone believe you've got it going on.

5. Host a playdate with grownup food.
The selection of pre-made food at grocery stores these days is definitely good enough to fool guests. (Try Trader Joe's caramelized onion puff pastries.)

This, is exactly how the moms in my neighborhood do it. I got tired of keeping up the front so now I just go around raggy, with a dirty car, and I serve Cheeze Its as grown up snacks.

This is so fake.

I’m so glad I don’t care about whether or not other mothers think I’ve got it together! This just makes a mom’s job that much harder. I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
