Plenty of moms have cried a mixture of happy and sad tears over their kids starting kindergarten this year, as it's such a huge milestone in any parent's life.

I mean, it's so hard to send them off to "big kid" school after being accustomed to the security blanket that is preschool. At the same time, we feel a sense of pride at seeing them take such a huge and significant step.

As crazy as it may sound, we actually have quite a bit in common with our new little school-goers. When you stop and think about it, a 5-year-old's routine really isn't all that different from what moms do (and feel) on a daily basis.


Here are 10 ways a mom's life is pretty darn similar to that of a kindergartner.

1. There is no problem that arises that can't be instantly fixed with a cookie or ice cream.
