Making mom friends is tough. It’s all the nervousness of dating plus a toddler trying to punch you in the neck. Here are some pickup lines to help you ease into a friendship with that cool new mom at the park.
Every mom thinks their kid is the best. Woo them by appealing to their mom ego and complimenting their baby.
If you can talk to a mom about something else besides her kids, you will have a BFF.
...Unless you use formula. Then, that works too.
Coffee is every moms life blood. Ask her out for some. Or better yet, bring a cup for her to your next play date. The mom who gives coffee is the mom with a latte friends. (Get it? It would be funny if you had more coffee.)
I'm not saying I've gone to parks just because the moms I like will be there, because that would be stalking. Right?
Every mom needs a little solidarity. So, grab some paper towels and give her a smile. That lady wiping pee off the floor could be your new best friend.
A smile goes a long way to saying, "I see your kid is throwing sand, but I think you are cool. Let's be friends."
Carry snacks. Moms love snacks.
Ask her for your number. You can do it. Just make sure you don't text her emoticons of tears and wine until after the second playdate.
Seriously, moms love a good compliment.
Also, they Jamaican me crazy.
