About This Quiz

Being a mom is a rewarding task, but it's not easy. Sometimes you need a little comic relief  to let you know that you're doing a great job. That's where television comes in. TV moms deal with almost everything that real moms deal with, just in a scripted manner. But when you're a mom watching something that is so relatable, it doesn't seem scripted. It's more like they took moments right out of your life and put them on the television for everyone to see. It makes you feel less alone and also lets you know that it's okay to laugh at some of the mistakes you've made as a parent. 

But you don't have to be a mom to have an idea of what you would be like as a mom or to want to know if you're more like a sitcom mom or a hospital drama mom. By taking a closer look at your overall personality, your would-be-mom tendencies become a little clearer. Of course, like anyone will tell you, everything you think you know about being a mom goes completely out the window when you actually have kids. With all that said, which TV mom are you? Take this quiz to find out!
