Quiz – Which type of Mum are you?

A.   Your child brings home a work assignment from school. Do you:

  1. Make them do it as soon as they walk through the door?
  2. Never look to see if anything is brought home
  3. Make sure Nanny is supervising the homework
  4. What homework? You’re at a conference 2,000 miles away
  5. Life’s too short for homework
  6. Tell them you were doing this sort of thing when you were much younger than them
  7. Try to stop one of the other children making paper airplanes out of it
  8. Write note to teacher saying that child is too busy training for the under-12s Triathlon

B.   Your child come home and tells you they are being bullied at school. Do you:

  1. Arrange to meet the bully’s parents and suggest their child has counselling
  2. Shave your bloke’s head, cover him in tattoos then send him over to bully’s house to ‘talk’ to them
  3. Give your child a smartphone so they can call Childline when they want to
  4. Ignore it: you’re far too busy and they’re probably exaggerating
  5. Chase the perpetrators down the street on your mobility scooter
  6. Think it might toughen your child up
  7. Try and remember the next morning which of your children is being bullied
  8. Enrol them in Taekwon-Do, Karate and kick-boxing classes

  5. Wear the Olympic Bronze medal for archery you won at the London Olympics (1944)
  6. Gatecrash the children’s races and reach the finishing line first
  7. Keep child at home: competitive sport isn’t good for their self confidence
  8. Get the child there by 7am to warm up and practice first

D.  You take your child to school:

  1. In the car early to make sure you get a parking space
  2. On the bus even though the school is only 5 minutes walk away
  3. That’s Nanny’s job unless you have a hair appointment and can drop-off en route

I answered something different to each of those, although I THINK/am ashamed to admit that I might possibly be *whispers* Mission Mum argh! Great post as always 🙂

    Jo - March 27, 2014

    I’m just a teeny bit of all of them, in personality if not in actuality, but what is it with Mission Mum ? .. Never thought I’d be saying, “No, that’s not long enough, you can go over your scales again, then practise the pieces both hands separately before supper” 😉 Thanks for liking the post too x

I’m probably closest to runny mummy, but there’s a bit of everything.
I buy my kids’ clothes in Next. Where does that fit in?

    Jo - March 27, 2014

    Thanks for doing the quiz Sarah! *Next*? Good question! Hmmm. Afraid that falls into the same category as Boden so you’re also part Mission Mum! xx

This is so funny. I appear to be a 50/50 split between Mission Mum and Runny Mummy.

I answered three questions with the #1, so apparently I am a “Mission Mom”, watch out everyone. lol

    You are not alone ! If you don’t mind sharing, I’d be interested to know which 3 questions you answered, Catherine:)

Rachel - 3yearsandhome - March 30, 2014

Argh, I hate to admit it but I’m Mission Mum. Change Manchester to Leeds and the fact that I gave consciously gave my boys very ordinary names so that they work in an international environment (future careers to think about, dahling) and you’ve basically summed me up. I’m awful!

Reply
    Jo - March 31, 2014

    No you’re not awful, but what’s with the names? Miley, Elvis and Tiger had/have international careers not to mention Madonna, and if your kids aren’t going to be performers, there’s a President called Goodluck 😉

Mirka Moore @Kahanka - March 31, 2014

I have answered differently for more qs, but many people would say I am a runny mummy 😉 Saying that, I love beach holidays, love shopping at Zara or Boden, and often do HM with my daughter 😉

    Jo - March 31, 2014

    Thanks for taking the time to do the Quiz, Mirka. Nice to have another mainly Runny on board – i guess we’re all a bit of a mix 😉

I’m a Mission Mum (or Dad to be entirely accurate).

Nothing to be ashamed of there although I’d love to see my wife doing the Tour De France route!

    I do have some cartoon Dads but haven’t got them to link up yet. If you’re a cyclist you’ll be pleased to know Mission Mum is married to MAMIL (middle aged man in lycra).

I was equally Mission Mum and Runny Mum. Although there were a few that I wasn’t really sure how to answer. I love these sorts of quizzes! #TheListLinky

    Hi Amie, you actually have a real life Amelia! No wonder you’re a runny if you have a toddler – don’t we do the equivalent of a marathon a month running around after them? #picknmix

AW apparently I’m mission mum! I don’t think I’m quite as bossy (but some would disagree I’m sure) anyway we have the same hair so it must be me! #fridayfrolics

Reply
    Jo Sandelson - December 2, 2016

    You have the same hair? Interesting. She’s sort of made up although most Mission Mums I know coercively control all their follicles. Thanks for stopping by #fridayfrolics
