I admittedly hate most of the marketing-type names that moms get saddled with: stay-at-home mom, working mom, soccer mom, Alpha Mom, Beta Mom, yada yada. But within the past year or so, I’ve come across a couple that I love: mompreneur (how sexy is that?!) and my total fave, hybrid mom. If we’ve got to have a label, ones as provocative as these are the ones to have, right?
While I guess I’ve been a hybrid mom since my oldest son was born in that my identity has that of a mom crossed with so much much more, I’m now even more of one, I guess, since a post of mine appeared at the official Hybrid Mom website. It’s pretty cool. I encourage you all to check out the site, as well as my post, “Hard-Knock Mom.” And comment away!
In the meantime, I’d love to hear how you like to be identified as a mom. I like to keep it simple: “I’m a mom and a writer.” How about you?
