How To Tell If You’re An Outdoor Mamma Full Article in the Outbound Collective:
Anyone can become an Outdoor Mama, but it takes guts, courage, and the willingness to look a bit crazy. When you arrive at the place of being able to call yourself an Outdoor Mama, you will know; it looks something like this:
Your car is always packed with extra clothes, food storages, water, and your car floors resemble a sort of treasure box, filled with random heart rocks, feathers, and sticks that little ones refuse to leave behind. The one time you cleaned your car out, you regretted it and if you are an Outdoor Mama, you’ll understand why.
Outdoor Mamas will be headed to the store after school with their kids and end up at the river, without noticing their brain knew what it needed the most. They have learned that planning is a ridiculous notion when things tend to not work out accordingly, and life is better spent on a random adventure. Outdoor Mamas just know that they don’t have to have it all figured out to go- they just need to get in the car and roll with it. Her kids admire her adventurous spirit, but she does make her normal friends nervous sometimes.
You’ll know you have reached the ‘Outdoor Mama’ status when you feel yourself asking the questions of: “Should I really have my kids here?” and, “Am I the only one doing this?” or, “I wonder how many trips I have to take to carry everyone across the river.”
