Has anyone ever told you that you’re the mom of the friend group? Every group has one, and if yours doesn’t, it’s probably you!
Every group has a mom of the group. It’s the person that tends to stay sober just to make sure everyone is safe. The moms of the group come in a variety of ranges in intensity. Sometimes they’re just there to catch you and sometimes they’re whooping your ass for doing something stupid. It’s needless to say that these are the best friends to have. They are always truly looking out for your well being and they have your back to the end, no matter how stupid you are. They’re the friends that act for you first and ask questions later. I am without a doubt the mom of my friend group. I’m always the one they come to with emotional issues, advice, and I even cook for them…
If you’re the mom in the group you’ll without a doubt relate to these 16 things. These are basically the jobs of the mom friend. If you do these things I hate to break it to you, but you’re the mom. We never asked for this position it just kind of happened. I guess because of our responsible thought processed and protectiveness. Either way, we look out for our youngins, and who knows where they’d be without us!

The mom of the group is behind the camera more than they are in front of it. They always make us stand awkwardly for some sort of picture and then has to take 10 more.
