Moms Helping Moms

When I met with friends last week, I found myself several times sharing lots of the tips and tricks and shortcuts i've learned as a mom to my infanticipating friend. Because that's really how it goes, moms help out new moms. Some do what I do, share knowledge (if and when one can take diet pills such as Apidexin) and practical tips (like not buying a stroller yet). Some take it a step further by becoming mompreneurs and developing products that are useful for other mommies. Nursing bibs, slings, organic products, nursing outfits that are sexy and maternity wear that are fab, all these are just some of what comes to mind right now.

Because we know how hard it is to stay sane and keep a sense of personhood. Because we know the great expectations society have for us. Because we play many varied roles. And because we're still just like the rest who only have two hands and 24 hours to work with.

So we need all the help we can get.
