We all have an Olympic mom or two in our lives. You know the ones – anything your child can do, hers can do better! One Olympic Mom told a mother of quadruplets that she had it ‘much harder’ having two kids because, “Quadruplets are always premmie, which means they are small. Smaller babies are easy. So I had it much harder than you!”
Dealing with an Olympic Mom can be challenging, and downright annoying, but the best way to deal with them is to just agree with everything they say because, similar to a narcissist they are NEVER WRONG. The only way to shut them up is to smile sweetly, even if it kills you, and nod your head and then change the subject. You are never going to win, so it’s best to save your sanity and take a mental note not to engage with this woman in the future. Olympic Mom – they treat motherhood like a gold-medal event and, in her eyes, every other mother will always be a runner-up. Be gone!
