Our Mommy Blog Faves: It Takes a Village

  • The Rural Roost
    Some mom blogs and their readers find comfort in shared experiences. Maggie, voice of The Rural Roost, recently shared her experiences with a stressed daughter and a sick son. While the family adjusts to having a little boy with Type 1 diabetes, they're also learning about their 3-year-old daughter's trichotillomania. Trich is a disorder that causes people to pull, pluck and pick at their hair, skin and nails.

  • Hand and the Heart
    Those who aren't stay-at-home moms sometimes think SAHMs' day-to-day lives are filled with giggles, sunshine and rainbows. That can be the case at times, but it can also be tiring and stressful. Andrea, at Hand and the Heart, provides readers an inside look into the not-so-great moments that can occur in a day as a SAHM. Her realization that other moms experience some of the same hurdles can remind all parents that they aren't alone—and they aren't bad parents just for feeling stressed.

  • A Mama Collective
    Jenna, of A Mama Collective, posed a question that has received many interesting answers in the comments: "What do you do in the middle of the night?" When you wake up in the middle of the night, what activity puts your mind at ease? Maybe you're the type to use it as extra work time, "me" time, cleaning time or none of the above.

  • Mama Banana's Adventures
    One struggle you encounter when you have two or more children is having to balance your time and attention among them. Jeanette, writing at Mama Banana's Adventures, gives an honest account of the guilt she feels when she can't meet the needs of all of her children at once. Of course, with the help of grandparents, everyone gets the attention they deserve. How do you handle days when you just can't be everything to everyone at once? Tell us in the comments below.

  • Women With Worth
    Last, but certainly not least, a writer for Women With Worth, gives this sweet and sincere "thank you" to her children's teachers. The moments they go above and beyond to help students in the smallest and biggest ways never go truly unnoticed. Our fingers are crossed that you get dedicated teachers like these at least once in your child's life!
