Congratulations! You got mostly B’s on the “Which Type of Mum Are you?” Quiz, making you the “Nonchalant Mumma”! This type of mumma is relatively laid back and goes with the flow. You generally seem unconcerned with most things, and are happy to take your cues from the baby or from others. These mums are more likely to be second, third, fourth (or so on) time mums, as you are used to running around after the kids most of the day and night. The nonchalant mums are very flexible, and make their plans around their babies. This might mean they are more prone to being late (based on their child’s sleeping routines), and happy to make plans at the last minute depending on how their day is going. Their relaxed nature can be very comforting to other mums, particularly the anxious types.
Things this mum might say:
They may say things like:
“I’m going for a coffee in about half an hour. Does anyone else want to join me?”
“Yep I’d love to come over. I’ll let you know in the morning when I’m on my way.”
“I’m used to waking up every couple of hours at night.”
“I wouldn’t worry about it, I’m sure they’re fine. If you are worried, go see a doctor.”
Why we love this mum:
This mumma is chilled and relaxed, and brings everything down a notch for other mums (particularly us anxious types). They help you feel more grounded, and are great to talk to if you’re worried or concerned about anything. They are more likely to “tell it like it is”, which can be refreshing for mums who worry too much. They are generally happier to look after your bub for you too, especially if you need to go to the bathroom or do anything for 5 minutes. They are great house guests, because they don’t worry about the state of your house, and are great for last minute catch-ups if you need to get out of the house!
