Have you cashed in on your hipster status for motherhood?

Apparently, since having kids, many moms think they've lost their edge. We get it; it's hard being hip when you're wiping spit up off your shoulder. And don't even get us started on mom jeans.

Think you may have lost your cool? If you answer YES to four or more of the following questions, it's time to face the fact that your hipster days, like your flat stomach, are far, far behind you.

  1. Forget the hottest Prada or Kate Spade. Do you only have eyes for Petunia Picklebottom?
  2. When checking out the latest live music listings, are the only names you recognize '90s revival bands?
  3. Is your TIVO currently set to at least one Nickelodeon show?
  4. Are you clueless when it comes to where the hottest restaurants are, but can pinpoint every play area in a 10-mile radius of your house?
  5. Are you 20 years too late to shop at Forever 21?
  6. Do you know the name of every tween star under contract with Disney?
  7. Has your underwear gone from thong, to bikini, to granny panty?
  8. Can you identify all of the Jonas Brothers just by their hair?
  9. Is the last time you saw a grown-up movie when Jennifer and Brad were still married?
  10. Have you ever looked in the window of an Easy Spirit shoe store and thought to yourself, "Wow, those look so comfortable!"?
  11. In adult conversation, do you spell out words like "S-E-X" and "V-O-D-K-A-T-O-N-I-C"?
  12. Are the only demi cups in your house used for tea?
  13. When digging in your purse for lipstick, do you pull out any of the following: pacifier, Matchbox car, fossilized animal cracker?
  14. Has getting "drinks with the girls" turned into juice boxes with the girls?
