Have you ever wondered what your status is in your child's parent group?
A mom on TikTok is saying that she is the "fringe mom" in her child's parent group.
The "Fringe Mom"
The TikToker @shinebeautymalibu is a makeup and beauty social media influencer.
She is also a single mom and refers to herself as a "fringe mom." She says that she's come to terms with it and knows that's who she is.
What Is A Fringe Mom?
According to @shinebeautymalibu, a fringe mom is the mom that the other moms do not talk to.
A fringe mom is not in the inner circle, and they stay on the "fringe" of things when it comes to the other moms.
What Does That Look Like?
So what does that look like?
She says that the other mom's will gather and share stories and she just gets a wave as she walks by. She's not invited to any of the other mom's gatherings.
The "Cool Mom" Uniform
She says that a fringe mom does not have the "cool mom" uniform.
The cool mom uniform consists of a puffy coat and mid-calf size Uggs that are all the same color.
Fringe Mom Boots
As a fringe mom, she does not have the mid-calf cool mom Uggs.
Instead, she only has the regular full size Uggs that go all the way up her shins.
Fringe Mom Win
She wanted to change that so she did some Ugg research.
She found that there was a new style called the mini. She ordered herself a pair, and now they are sold out and you can't find them anywhere.
Cool Mom Hair
Another thing that she says all of the cool moms have is the air wrap hair curler.
While all the cool moms were getting air wraps, she was getting an air fryer.
Fringe Mom Hair Curler
She really wanted an air wrap but they were sold out everywhere.
As a fringe mom, she had to spend way more than the cool moms and buy the limited edition air wrap.
Fringe Mom At The Soccer Game
In another video, she explained what a fringe mom looks like at their child's soccer tournament.
While the other parents are grouped together to watch the game, the fringe mom is off by themselves.
Nobody Sat With Her
She turned the camera around and showed how nobody was sitting anywhere close to her on either side.
Can you tell if you are the fringe mom of your child's parent group?
