    Everyone knows at least one or two of these moms. They’re the ones who can’t throw normal birthday parties with cake and ice cream. These moms have to have themes and make their own invitations, party hats and tablecloths.

    These same moms show up for class parties with homemade, child-sized, three-course mini-meals. Of course, these moms are always perfectly coiffed and dressed to the nines.
