One woman has written a hilariously relatable open letter to a fellow mum she spotted at her local Target store. Nikki Pennington took to Facebook in the hope of finding her potential new friend, or as she says, her BMFF (best mom friend forever.)
Nikki was at Target doing her weekly shop when she noticed the woman who looked very familiar. The women had her hair in a bun and was rocking a messy bun. Nikki realised this woman was a mum once she spotted the tired mum uniform.
She wrote on her Facebook post titled ‘Missed Connections’, “To the Mom In Target. You were at Target last night about 7 pm in the crayon aisle. I was wearing my mom couture complete with dry shampoo hair, no makeup, yesterday’s T-shirt and yoga pants”
She knew the woman was a mum because of their similar style, “Even though you were wearing yoga pants you had in fact not come from the gym. I know because I was doing the exact same thing #yogapantsarelife.”
The hilarious mum went on to share that she sneakily tried to find out this women’s name by checking her Starbucks cup. Unfortunately, her eyesight was no help to her, “Let’s be honest, at my age I’m on the verge of needing readers to see that far away.”
Nikki even peered into the trolley to check out the woman’s shopping, “In your cart, you had diapers, soda, wine, and chocolate.” The contents of the trolley proved that her theory was right, the woman was a fellow mum, “We, in fact, were meant to be best mom friends.”
The mum went on to write about how visiting the supermarket was a mum’s idea of socialising, “We were both just having a night out. I mean we all know that’s where all moms go for a night out.”
Nikki hopes to bump into her potential new friend next week, “To the fellow mom in Target last night at 7 pm, if you see this and recognize this story and my Starbucks drink please know I’ll be back at Target again next week because let’s be honest, I live there.”
We hope Nikki and her future BMFF meet again one day in the frozen food aisle. She ended the letter by saying, “Maybe I’ll see you again, same time, same aisle and this time we can wander around aimlessly in Target together for our moms’ night out.”
We think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
