7 Ways To Spot A Mom (Even When She's Not With Her Kids)

Being a mom is the greatest thing in the world (yes, my opinion). Not only is it the amazing things I get to do, see and experience as a mom, but the understanding and friendship that’s easy to find in fellow moms.

We share something — the experience of becoming a mom, the unique situations we find ourselves in, the way we adapt to the craziness of parenthood — it’s pretty unique to parenting.

With that, it can be easy to tell who is a mom even when they are without their. The quiet woman who kindly smiles to you at the grocery store while your kid is having an epic tantrum is probably a fellow mom who knows that the stares are the worst. Click to find out even more ways to spot a mom even when she’s not with her kids:
