Word to Your Mother

Somebody call Mammalingo, I have 2 more new words for them. 

Vanxiety - That sinking feeling/pit in your stomach that you get when you realize that you are suddenly in an unplanned situation of giving a ride to someone that you don't want to see the inside of your mom car.  Examples include your boss, a client, a put-together friend that does not have kids and just would not understand the cheerios, sippy cups, diapers (clean or dirty) and stickers all over the windows, seats, floor and ceiling.   

Momiform - That template for an outfit that you utilize every day, rarely changing any aspect of it too much.  It works for you and so you repeat it over and over and over. 

Do you get vanxiety?  Do you have a momiform?  Talk to me....

What is with me making up words?  I've been doing it lately...

I have a Momiform, and it is in serious order of a redo/ make over asap. Even my 88 year old grandmother tells me I need to wear more color.

And, yes, we have cheerios and stickers in our car. Just good to know we are not the only ones.

Yes. And Yes. And Ugh! I was just sighing to my husband the other day about how positively disgusting my car is...So speaking of cars...can we figure out what the word is for the anxiety of knowing that a mini-van is probably the most practical choice for this stage of family life, but feeling so conflicted about what it might "say" about you as a person? We're contemplating a 3rd babe, but we'd need a car with a 3rd row of seats and I'm refusing to go the mini-van route because I'm too proud or something... Is there a word for that or am I just being a snob?

everytime robb gets in my car he says: "oh good, that banana peel is still in here." and my momiform consists of a hoodie, nursing tank and jeggings. every. single. day.
