Don't Make Another Mom Second-Guess their Parenting with Snarky Comments!

I have quite a few mom friends who have posted online (not on Momtourage, of course) that they have had this baby struggle, or that difficulty, or some kind of parenting problem. Usually, mutual mom friends will comment with their own perspective, offer advice, or make suggestions. Often, there's the proverbial, electronic-pat-on-the-back, an 'attaboy!' to the beleaguered mom who's struggling on some level. There's also many, "You're doing a…

Getting the Grands to babysit more...Expectation or bonus?

It can be tough to find reliable, affordable babysitters these days. I’m often jealous of my mommy friends who have live-in relatives, or a mother-in-law who lives down the street, or a sibling who loves to watch their nieces and nephews on the weekends!

The problem is that my family doesn’t really have those options, because we have a location-situation with any family-related childcare. One set of grandparents lives in…
