"Are you a slacker Mom?"

I'm not entirely sure what a "slacker Mom" is, but according to the results of this silly personality quiz I took, apparently I'm not one. In fact, here are my results:

Are You a Slacker Mom? Your quiz results make you a Smarty Pants Mom

Smart parents like you have smart kids. They need plenty of intellectual stimulation and you provide them with all they need, plus lots of love. You know how to help them with algebra homework, and you are superior at kissing boo-boos. Take this free personality test by Clicking Here>> or going to


Well, I don't know about algebra homework -- thankfully we're a few years away from that still. But yes, I'm pretty good at kissing boo-boos. The Boop got her first majorly skinned knee this past week, which has sprouted an impressive scab. Just in time for that fourth birthday party next week!

I knew just how motherood had influenced my very core when I took another one of these silly quizzes when the Booper was about two. It was one of those "which Pooh character are you?" quizzes, and I assumed I was going to come out as Piglet. I've always suspected I have an inner Piglet. But no, somewhere along the way, I'd morphed into Kanga....

By the way, is there a Mr. Kanga anywhere? Milne never brings him up.

Sorry for the silliness of this posting, but I know I've got some more deep reflections coming soon (theology...ecclesiology...history...) so I thought I'd make sure I inject little levity into the week. :-)

Hmmm, I've wondered about Mr. Kanga myself... Both my parents came out as Kanga too. Unsurprisingy, I was Piglet... As for the Mom profile, that sounds about right; you're certainly very nurturing, and all your reading must be intellectualy stimulating for her! :)

Yeah, I kinda liked the "smartypants" title. :-)

Did Mr. Kanga die? Were they divorced? Hmm... single parenting little Roo must have been even more challenging before they moved to the Hundred Acre wood, where they have such a supportive neighborhood!
