Hello Ladies! There are about ten billion articles on how to be a "good mom" but at Chic Central we've been discussing the idea what makes a cool mom? Are moms cool? Of course, they are! Here are 5 things they do that make them the coolest person in the room.

1. She's a Boss to More than Just Her Fam

A cool mom knows that she's the boss of more than just her family. She can run a company and still make sure her children have their favorite Capri Sun flavor. If she isn't working in an office setting, she still takes care of business. She'll run that PTA meeting Beyoncé style, but with just a little less dancing.

2. Hangs With Other Grown Ups

Even though it's tempting to spend all of her time with her little ones, this lady knows that for her sanity, she needs to spend time with other adults. She has a wide array of friendships. She'll hang with other mommies, single gals, The Pope, all kinds of folks! She maintains her own interests and shows her a child that's a priority too.

3. Keeps Up with Tech Trends

Chic moms are good at texting, tweeting, snapping, twicking, ok, you got me twicking isn't real, but its sounds like it could be right!?! By keeping up with the latest advances in technology this gal is able to better understand the world her kids are growing up in. Also, Snapchat is the funniest thing ever! Wanna figure out how to work it? We've got you girl! Here's a video showing you what's up!

4. Uses as Few "Mom" Items as Possible

Her diaper bag isn't just a traditional diaper bag. Sure, it's got diapers in it, BUT also a laptop, smartphone, and some matte lipstick. Our girl reads style blogs, goes to museums, and loves fashion. Being a mom doesn't mean you lose your sense of taste. I would argue that it gives you a stronger sense of it because you know who you are. This babe looks cute in her chambray shirt even though there may be a tiny apple sauce stain on it.

5. Takes The Time To Get THEMSELVES Ready, Not Just Their Little Ones

Of course everyone's going to have a morning where you rush out of the house only to realize you're still in your PJ's. Striving to take the time to look your best so that you can feel your best is important too. Don't have the time? Don't be afraid to ask. Many hands make light work, as they say, so ask your honey, parents, neighbors, even a sitter to help a girl out! Making time to get ready for your daywill only benefit those around you.

Being who you are and also being kind to yourself is what makes you cool. Nobody expects perfection, so you do you girl!
