A Little Thievery

While at a playdate a couple of days ago, we were discussing how people borrow ideas for their own blogs from other people's blogs. It was at that time that I decided that I would steal ideas from my friend's blogs for a few of my own. Today, I am stealing from Holly.

So, here is your quiz for the day: Which movie mom are you?

Here's my match:

Melodie, your movie mom match is My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Maria Portokalos
Maria Portokalos may not have been the focus of the movie, but that's the only way she would have had it. You, like Maria, are the backbone of your family, but you do it without ever wanting to be the center of attention. You know what we're talking about — your kids always seek out your well-thought-out and sincere advice, and your husband knows who really wears the pants in your house.

You consider motherhood a delicate balancing act — you're strong and tough when necessary, but it's tempered with love and respect. Fiercely loyal, you always act with your family's best interest at heart. And that's just the way you want it.

So which movie mom are you? Find out here.

I'm the same Mom as you, Melodie!

Not really, but here are my results.

Holly, your movie mom match is The Sound Of Music's Maria Von Trapp

OK, so maybe you never went straight from a convent to motherhood, but it's a safe bet that you encourage and support your family in much the same way that Maria did. Playful and yes, sometimes a little mischievous, you tend to lead by doing, and you always make sure to help your children achieve their goals without actually doing it for them.

You inspire your family because you always find creative ways to make even the most mundane chores or homework problems seem fun and important. And you want others to try to find the beauty in life — whether it's from art, music, books, or adventure. Those are just a few of your favorite things.

Kandee, your movie mom match is Freaky Friday's Tess Coleman So you might not be a psychiatrist...and you most definitely haven't switched bodies with your kids (right?), but when it comes to parenting, you've got a lot in common with hardworking Tess Coleman. You're passionate and driven about your family and your career, and you do everything in your power to make sure that your family has it all.

Even when you're juggling a million responsibilities, you take most things you do very seriously. But you can certainly find that kid inside and cut loose when you need to. You just have to remind yourself every once in a while that doing cartwheels
