15 Things All DFW Metroplex Moms Know To Be True, Y’all

The only thing suburban about us is our cars.

1. Driving 100 miles a day is no big deal. (Especially when your SUV is as big as many NYC apartments.)

And you know all the back roads to avoid the Tollway and 635.

2. But driving in a parking lot? Not likely.

Pediatrician? Valet. North Park? Valet. Charity meeting? Valet. Soccer practice? A mom can dream.

3. You have your mom squad — and y'all roll deep.

The girls in your hood have your back at PTA, carpool, and when you find out you didn't get the teacher you requested.

4. And when things start to get real tense in your crib, they're always down for a trip to Hawaiian Falls.

5. You know the healing powers of shaved ice.

Yeah. The Bahama Buck's drive-thru is insane after school, but you gotta get that skinny ice.

6. You've squeezed in an extra workout just to lift your kid's mum.

And might need to take on a second job to afford it. Ooof.

7. You've thrown elbows at the school silent auction trying to win that — ahem — "beauty" certificate.

It's for a good cause!

8. Visiting the museum at least once a year is a definite must.

Can't let that membership go to waste!

9. Your handbag is littered with 14 pairs of princess and superhero shades.

Whelp. Anything to protect them from ☀️☀️☀️.

10. It's true. You've forced your kids to endure a sweat sesh while you get the perfect Dallas Arboretum pumpkin patch photo.

"This will look so cute! I promise!"

11. But sometimes? "Momming" can feel like a competitive sport...

Are we raising kids or competing for a gold medal?

12. Seriously, everyone has stunning baked goods!

13. And — yeah — you've certainly felt judged by other moms.
