Are you a Party Stage Mom?

Take this quiz and find out.

1.  THE HOST ANNOUNCES START OF "BRING ME" GAME, YOU ...

a.   Stay at your seat and wait for your child to come over and ask for the bring me item.

b.   Stay at your seat and open your bag and hold on to your wallet.

c.   Sit on the kiddie chair beside your child, heart palpitating and with bag, wallet and make-up kit open.  Heck, you even brought the invite!  They always ask for it:-)

2.   HOST TELLS YOUR CHILD TO PICK A PRIZE, YOU ...

a.   Let your child and "ate" (nanny) pick any prize.

b.   Make a quick peek from afar of what is in the table and tell your child to get an airplane.  If he comes back with the simplest of toy cars, it's alright, that's what he likes.

c.   Go with your child to the prize table and tell him "you like this airplane, right?"  even if he is holding on to the plastic toy car of his choice.

3.   UPON ENTERING THE PARTY SCENE, YOU ...

a.   Look for the celebrant chit-chat a bit then go find friends and settle down with them immediately.

b.   Sit your child in the kiddie tables and chairs and ask "ate" to go around and get from the food carts.

c.    Scan the party area and immediately spot all the stations.  You make your strategy and let your child line up in stations that fill out fast.  Hair salon check, Face painting check,  tattoo check, french fries check, ice cream check ...

4.   AT THE HAIR SALON STATION, FACE PAINT STATION, YOU ...

a.   Let the attendant do the work, she knows what is best.

b.   Let the attendant know what your child prefers.

c.   Tell the attendant exactly what you want done to your child's hair. Something not easily done at home! Elsa braid! More clips here, color spray there, intricate tattoo please ...

5.   OMG!  THEY HAVE THE MOST ADORABLE CENTERPIECE EVER!!!, YOU ...

a.   What centerpiece?  You didn't even notice it.

b.   Comment "wow, what a nice centerpiece," and secretly wish no one from your table will take it home.

c.   Announce to everyone who sits in the table, "I'm taking home the centerpiece," and you guard it with your life.

6.   HOST ANNOUNCES A MOTHER AND CHILD GAME, YOU ...

a.   Don't move an inch.  "No way will they make me do those silly games."

b.   Are OK with whatever your child wishes and will join if she wants to and it's ok if she doesn't.

8.   HOST ANNOUNCES GIVING AWAY OF LOOT BAGS, YOU ...

a.   Didn't hear it.

b.   Ask your child to line up and wait for her turn.

c.   Demand your child to go immediately, asap, now and line up.

9.   MAGIC SHOW JUST STARTED, YOU ...

a.   Continue chatting with your friends,  you've seen too many.

b.   Watch and appreciate but occasionally chat with your friends.

c.    Stay beside your child and point to each item the magician is holding "look baby rabbit" and is more excited than all the kids beside you.

Scoring:  Give yourself 0 points for every A answer, 5 points for every B, and 10 for every C.  For any score over 50, you are a certified party stage mom.  I'm borderline!:-) For me there is nothing wrong with being a party stage mom.  It is directly proportional to your age as a parent - new parent to veteran parent.  The newer mom you are the greater propensity of you ending up as a stage mother for the moment.   Enjoy it!  It wanes on the second child and disappears on the 3rd:-)

What's your score?:-)
