Momspringa: A flippant term that came out of my loose understanding of the Amish tradition of Rumspringa, in which youth enjoy freedom from the stricter rules of their upbringing for a few years before deciding to live the amish lifestyle for good.

Rumspringa (IPA: [rəmˈsprɪŋə], Pennsylvania Dutch: [rʊmˈʃprɪŋə]), also spelled Rumschpringe or Rumshpringa, is a term for a rite of passage during adolescence, translated in English as “running around,” used in some Amish and Mennonite communities.
