9 Awesome Things Good Mom Friends Do Right

While some friends have stayed with us since grade school, others come in and out of our lives. Over time, our criteria for friends change. The criteria for an Elementary Friend might be as simple as living close to each other, a University Friend might be someone who keeps the same hours as you, or is in the same classes. Sometimes, once the reason you were friends no longer exists, neither does the friendship.

Yet, others join you at different stages of your life and stay with you for the remainder.

Since becoming a parent, I have been blessed with getting to know a close network of moms who have quickly become my friends.

No one wants their children to be sick. While we can take medicine to counter act our coughs, colds or flu, most medicines are off limits for toddlers and babies, making them sick and miserable. Add in two or three kids sick at the same time, and it is a rough couple of days for everyone in the house. Multiply this by 10 if you are sick too. Nothing says misery quite like puking beside your puking toddler. A good mom friend knows this. And while she wants to know that your kids are OK, she knows they are if you are!

Do Disneyland Like a Pro

As season pass holders, my family has figured out what we believe are the best tricks to an enjoyable day at Disneyland. Growing up, my memories of Disneyland trips consist of carrying around frozen water bottles while being bused to the park. Not the most efficient route, but we made it there. We would stay at the park until closing, leaving us so exhausted that it would likely be a year before we’d return. I was introduced to a different way of doing Disneyland when I met my fiancee.   Read more >
