I'm a moderate

(Don't be alarmed--I still bleed blue, politically speaking.)

I took a "What kind of Mom are you?" quiz over at iVillage, and I guess they summed me up pretty well:
You're a Moderate Mom! Some days you outpace Super Woman, other days you
kick back and just watch your kids play. You're a fantastic mom and just happy
to be in the middle of it all.

For what it's worth, here's the quiz: http://quiz.ivillage.com/parenting/tests/momstyle.htm.

While I was at it, I took their "Is your life balanced?" quiz (http://quiz.ivillage.com/parenting/tests/balance.htm), and here's my result:
Even Stephen- You are one of those rare adults with a firm grasp on her
priorities. Even though you put others first, you are fluent in the subtle art
of compromise and know exactly when to cut yourself some slack. Since you
already know how important it is to make time for yourself, the only thing left
for you to do is find is the key to actually getting those solitary moments. So
what could we possible suggest for the woman who's got it all under control? A
babysitter, to help you keep everything under control.

Judging from these results (however shallow they are), I'm feeling pretty good about my life as a mom today.

I wonder what you have to enter to get something like, "You suck. We're calling CPS as you read this."

I thought I would be a moderate...but...
"You're a Laid-Back Mom!
Congratulations, you've found a way to be a great mom and stay relaxed too. Don't keep your trade secrets to yourself -- share them with the rest of us!" Hmmm..-C

You might find this hard to believe, given that I have a penis, but I, too, am a moderate mom.

I'm a "Moderate Mom" and "Even Stephen." Somewhat surprising since I'm prone to periods of uptightness ... but I guess I've got myself somewhat under control :) This was fun and reassuring, thanks!
