Do you remember over the holidays when my friend Eva and I created a ‘Your Holiday Personality’ quiz? We were blown away by the response and how much fun you guys had with it, so we decided to make another one in honor of Mother’s Day.
There are lots of ‘mom types’ out there from the ‘Stepford Mom’ (pictured above) to the ‘Non-Mom’ (pictured below) and everything in between. This quiz is a fun little joke but the bigger message that I want to share today is that every mom, no matter what her style, is doing her best. And my reminder to you moms reading this is that however you handle the crazy stuff that motherhood throws at you, remember you’re doing a great job.
I finally listened to Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast where he interviewed his wife, Kristen Bell (highly recommend). In it, she repeated over and over that she fully believes that everyone is doing their best with what they have at that moment and I love that sentiment. At one point she talked about it in the context of forgiving yourself for mistakes you’ve made in the past because even though you might know better now, you were doing your best at that time with what you had.
I think this is a great attitude to take on as mom because we all make mistakes and we’re all figuring it out as we go. There is no such thing as a perfect parent… Just ask any therapist! So forgive yourself for your past mistakes and try to forgive yourself in the moment when you make your next mistake.
Before I sign off today I want to wish every mom, soon-to-be mom, and trying-t0-be mom out there a happy Mother’s Day!

Guess I’m chill but almost stepford! I had absolutely no c’s or d’s! I hope everyone has a great weekend celebrating or remembering their mamas!
I got a cross between Stepford and Chill mom! Haha I guess im balanced ? ♀️
B! With a few As thrown in. Pretty accurate
I got the Chill mom! Happy Mother’s Day!
Spilt with 5 A’s and 5 C’s….Fun! & brings me back to taking quizes in Cosmo magazine.
I got The Chill Mom. Which is totally accurate. I may not be so chill on the inside all the time, but my exterior, that’s def what I am!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
I got the chill mom followed by the stepford mom which I think is pretty accurate. Nice job ladies!
I got mostly a’s and c’s. What a weird combination! hahaha
Pretty evenly split between Stepford and Chill- I’ll take it! Haha
I got the “chill mom” !
I got “Stepford” although I don’t really think that is me at all. Maybe I need to reevaluate! Too funny.
So fun! I am a split between a Stepford Mom and a Chill Mom! I think that’s pretty accurate- I wouldn’t know how to keep up full Stepford Mom pace with 4 kids.
I’m the chill mom, apparently! Maybe I should stop stressing so much lol!
I’m the “chill mom” coming a bit close to step ford. With two kids if I wasn’t chill about some things I’d turn crazy
I ended up with four “A’s” and four “B’s”. This describes me very well! A little bit of structure, likely my anxiety, (The Stepford Mom) mixed with mostly chill (The Chill Mom), HAHAHA! Love this! Happy Mother’s Day to all you fabulous mommas!
Mostly A… stepford mom ♀️
I’m a mix of Stepford and Chill mom which makes sense! Happy Mother’s Day! xo
Half chill, half stepford. Hopefully getting more chill the longer I work on this momma thing!
I’m a chill mom! But my husband insisted on taking the quiz too and he got that I am a Stepford Mom. I don’t know if that means I think I’m more laid back than I am or that if I seem more pulled together than I actually am
Chill mom with a few stepford wives answers mixed in! Happy Mother’s Day to all!!
The “chill mom”, although most of the time a healthy mix of all four! This is cute!
As a “trying to be mom” I got Stepford mom! Heaven only knows that’s going to come crashing down when we have kiddos! Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms out there!
Awesome quiz! I loved doing these in teen magazines. I’m a mix between the Chill Mom and the Stepford Mom…..sums me up pretty well!! Happy Mother’s Day!
Chill mom yet I’m always second guessing myself! Ha, aren’t we all?!
Happy Mother’s Day!
Mix between a chill mom and non-gmo mom — pretty spot on! This was silly and super fun. Thanks for putting it together!
The stepford mom
I’m split between stepford and chill! Quakes sense actually! My twins love their Mac and cheese, and their monograms! I used to love these quizzes in the magazines!
*makes sense!! A little too chill this morning…
Haha, I got Stepford Mom with a smattering of Non-GMO Mom results! Happy Mother’s Day to all types of moms!
Such a fun quiz! Funny enough it says I’m the stepford mom, but I’m probably a good mix of all of them! Hope you have a wonderful mother’s day! I’m celebrating my first one…so I’m pretty excited! xo, biana

I’m a mix between a chill mom and a posh mom LOL. Which is so funny I would NEVER consider any aspect of my life posh. I buy my make up at drug stores and wash my hair once a week. But I do love a good speakeasy and named our kid after a relative. This was fun!
The Chill Mom – guess that happens with kid #2. A reformed Stepford Mom.
I got Chill Mom, which is pretty accurate! Happy Mother’s Day everyone!
I got the chill mom! Team B but at the end of the day we are all team M-O-M!!!
It’s a tie between A and B until the end and B was the tie breaker! Happy Mother’s Day!!
Stepford mom with a touch of chill. I’m ok with a bit of dirt on that Lilly dress.
Mostly a chill mom but I actually had at least one of everything! Just call me melting pot mom
Apparently I’m a stepford Mom. Can I help it if I love Mimosas?
I am split between A’s and C’s! Ha! A good mix, I think! Happy mother’s day! ❤️
Love this quiz! Turns out that I’m a Stepford Mom…with Chill Mom as a close second 🙂
I was a mix of Stepford, chill, and Non-GMO. We’re expecting our first this fall and I think it’s a fairly accurate representation of what I hope to be haha
Chill Mom! 😉
Happy Mother’s Day!
Stepford Mom 🙂
I’m a chill mom! I don’t feel that way very often, but looks like I’m a lot cooler than I thought and just being hard on myself! Happy Mother’s Day thanks for this fun post! Love you and Eva’s blogs !
I got Stepford Mom, closely followed by Chill Mom! Such a fun quiz!! Happy happy Mother’s Day to you both!
Mostly As with a few Bs throw in!
Mostly A’s and a good bit of B’s…Stepford and Chill Mom vibes hmmm! LOL
I got the chill mom! Though it certainly doesn’t feel like it many days haha !
This was so fun! I got 4 A’s, 4 B’s, and 1 C and 1D. I’m all over the place!!!! But that’s how I feel everyday soooooo I love someone else’s comment who said that must make me balanced then Do more quizzes and collaborations with Eva!
I am split between chill mom and Stepford mom. Pretty accurate of what I aim for and the not always Pinterest-ready version of reality with a 1 year old, which is A-ok with me! Fun quiz, happy Mother’s Day!
I am looooving these quizzes you two are doing! I got mostly B’s for this one!
I’m a stepford mixed with a bit of chill. Not surprising at all thought 🙂
The link to evas blog is not correct, it should be https://happilyevaafter.com/
I’m definitely a Chill Mom/Stepford combo. My quiz was a tie! Truthfully, I’m mostly chill in my life overall, but my son was really premature (11 weeks) so that bred in me a lot of anxiety related to his health and well-being. He’s almost 4 and the motherhood journey has taught me a lot about letting go of control, because we just cannot control it all, can we?!
i got the chill mom with a couple A’s thrown in.
I love this! You both always have so much fun! ♀️
I was between B & C – like a combination!
Chill mom!!! That’s my goal of parenting so I’m not surprised. You can’t plan everything- at the end of the day, things fall into place.
A mix of Posh and Non GMO! That’s was so fun!!! Thx gals.
Great post and quiz ladies!!! Bring on more. I got Chill Mom 🙂 That’s me for sure! Happy Mothers Day.
I answered mostly a’s- so stepford wife. But I don’t think that’s me! I’m different now, I have twins in college and a son leaving middle school.
Chill! I’ll take it
Mostly A and C, haha fun!
Thanks for making this, how fun! Almost all Bs with a few As thrown in. Chill vibe sounds about right. Happy Mother’s Day!
I got the “Non GMO Mom”. Pretty accurate! Haha!
Happy Mommy’s day to all the awesome mamas out there doing their best!
Haha! I scored mostly C’s! I thought I’d be more “chill” than “crunchy”, but it’s sll good! I also snuck an A and a D in there for good measure. Mimosas! Pizza! Yes!
Happy Mother’s Day! xoxo
5 A’s and 4 C’s! It’s a good combo, I think
No matter what you’re style, if you’re a mom you’re doing the most and know what’s best for your family! Go Mamas, Go!
Shockingly, The chill mom!
Happy Mother’s Day ladies!
Chill/Stepford combo! Half of each!
I got chill mom!! Happy chill Mother’s Day!
Omg I’m a Stepford! Lol ♀️
I answered mostly B’s and that means I’m a “chill mom”. If that’s the case it has definitely taken all of the past 6 years for me to have evolved in to that! . Happy Mother’s Day to you!
I love this! Saw it on Eva’s blog too. I’m “The Chill Mom” with Stepford Mom tendencies if I get too OCD and anxious and want to control everything.
That was fun, thanks ladies and Happy Motha’s Day!
mostly A’s for the stepford mom, but B’s were just one point away.
I am so a Gemini!! I had equal number of A’s and B’s. And couple of D’s for good measure! Fun quiz!
This was fun! I was all over the board with my answers…so I guess none of them ♀️ Depends on the day too; sometimes I’m chill, sometimes my kids match in cute outfits, sometimes they’re covered in dirt
But There may be a little high maintenance mom mixed in there if I’m being honest✌
Mostly b’s but a good mix of all…I guess I’m a chill mom but didn’t know it! Haha. Looking forward to celebrating my first Mother’s Day this year and hope it is as close to chill as possible!! Happy Mother’s Day to you and all of the moms out there!
I am equal parts A, B and C with 1 point for D. Does that make me well-balanced or a little crazy?
The Stepford Mom, but close run to the Chill Mom so it is a balance!
I got Stepford which made me LOL. I had a big mix of letters – I think most of us are a little bit of everything. Happy Mother’s Day!
Fun quiz! I got A personality. Thanks for all the good reminders this time of year I’m always hardest on myself, and know I’m not alone.
4 A’s & 4 B’s I’m a pretty chill stepford Mom this was silly and fun, happy Mother’s Day
I was mostly the “non-GMO” mom but had a lot of “chill mom” moments too!
This quiz was hilarious — especially the non-mom D answers! I got the “non-gmo mom” which I think is fairly accurate although with a fourth baby on the way, I’m going to have to adopt a more “chill mom” philosophy.
Nearly perfect mix of A’s and B’s with a few C’s and D’s thrown in, clearly depends on the day which version you are going to get! Love the quiz!!
I got the chill mom. No surprise there!
A little of everything- except the Posh mom. Hard to be posh with toddlers in the suburbs
Congratulations, Mari. You won! Email me to claim your prize at email@example.com xx
I took your quiz and had so much fun! I got Stepford Mama haha! It was fun it reminded me of back in the day taking quizzes from Cosmo and YM Magazine!
Mostly A’s and B’s! Happy mother’s Day weekend everyone! Thanks for hosting a fun giveaway!
Love you guys!! This is my first Mother’s Day (10 week old little dude!) and I got the Stepford Mom- I wish, ha!
I’m a chill mom! ✌♀️ NEVER thought that would be me
I’m a non-GMO mom sprinkled with chill mom. Pretty spot on…fun quiz!
An even split between “Stepford Mom” and “Chill mom.” How confusing for my children! no wonder they look at me like I’m crazy sometimes
Chill mom. It’s accurate. ♀️ I think I strive for Stepford mom sometimes and end up like, meh ♀️
This quiz was pretty hilarious and my results were pretty on-point with “Non-GMO Mom.” I legit quit my job after my first born because I was so happy & in love and finally accepted that I was on the wrong career path but I was too scared to admit it or make the change. However, it all worked out for the best because after having children my husband & I have been very proactive on seeking advice on parenting, marriage and even educating ourselves on nutrition & spirituality for our family.
I got the chill mom! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom types!
Apparently, I am a Stepford Mom.
Cross between Stepford & Chill!
Stepford mom…but pretty closely followed by two others so balanced, I guess? Happy mother’s day!
I got C and then A! This was fun – thanks for putting it together! Happy Mother’s Day to you two!
I’m a stepford mom! I think my love of Janie & Jack, love bracelets (I wish), mimosas, and Prosecco did me in! Happy Mother’s Day!
Fun quiz! I am part Stepford part Chill. Happy Mother’s Day to all!!!
I got Chill Mom!
Mostly the chill mom with a splash of the non-GMO mom so much fun!
You girls are so funny- reminds me of middle school! I got half chill and half stepford- I never knew the latter part!! Happy mother’s Day!! -Kat
Chill mom across every question!
Apparently I am a Stepford Mom in the quiz…. but I can confirm, not in real life
I got a chill mom! Which makes sense cuz I am usually a go with the flow type a person
Apparently I’m a Chill Mom. But I think I’m a little of everything, just depends on the day and my mood. Haha, that was a fun quiz. Happy Mother’s Day to you!
Mostly chill and a little stepford! 🙂
I’m almost purely Type A, Stepford mom! Don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing but it’s working for us!
I think I knew I was a Stepford wife before I even did the quiz, proved myself right…fun quiz girls!
Oh I’m definitely a B! Happy Mothers Day x
Combo of mostly B and some A! Definitely accurate. Such a fun idea! Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend
I’m the Chill Mom! 🙂 Thanks for the fun Mother’s Day quiz!
Mostly B’s for this chill mom 😉
I’m mostly split between A’s and C’s!
