Moms vs. Non-Moms: How did they stack up?

This post brought to you by Fisher-Price . The content and opinions expressed below are that of Daily Mom.

As moms, we’ve all felt the sting sometimes. Maybe your newborn will only fall asleep when Daddy is bouncing them? Or your toddler suddenly behaves angelic for Grandma while you’re away, and saves all their pent up frustration for an epic tantrum twenty minutes after she leaves? Let’s face it, raising tiny humans is hard. So today, we’ve decided to “test” moms against non-moms, to see who comes out ahead in some minor parenting tasks. You may be slightly jealous at how chic and professional your single girlfriend looks on a daily basis, but will she be able to hang doing your job?

A Day in My Life: Sarah

Have you ever looked at someone and wondered what a typical day in their life is like? We bet most of us have. We wonder sometimes if our days are similar to others, especially people who are in the same season of life as us. Or we are curious how someone who is the complete opposite of us spends their days. How many times as a new mom have you scoured the web to find other mom’s feeding, sleeping, and daily schedules for their baby, just to be sure you’re on the right track and to feel a sense of camaraderie? Have you wondered how working mothers juggle it all? Do you really think stay at home moms sit on the couch and eat bonbons? Do you ever ask your friends how they spend their days or what they do on the weekends? We all want to know what the other person is doing. We’re curious by nature. Social media has certainly helped us out in this area, so thank you Facebook and Instagram.

We at Daily Mom are jumping on the bandwagon of getting personal with you. We all come from different backgrounds, have different careers, personalities, and daily lives. We all come together virtually to provide you with the content you love to read everyday. But, if you ever wondered how we spend our day to day (more than just the short bio you see at the end of our posts), then you’re in luck.

My Stepson Calls Me Mom, and Here’s Why

In the step-family community, there is heated debate on what stepchildren should call their stepparents. True, a child can have only one bio-mom, but does that mean a stepmother isn’t a mother? Can a child be loyal to both dad and stepdad without hurting either parent?

People are passionate about their children, and when you factor in a blended family, it can be difficult for a child to decipher what he should or shouldn’t do and say. Parents in a blended family all have their own opinions; they each genuinely believe they know what is best for the child; and they all come from very different backgrounds. With these opinions comes polarizing debate on what exactly stepchildren should call stepparents. 

Whatever the case, my stepson calls me mom. Here’s why.

5 Tips to Reduce Allergens in Your Home

Sneezing your head off? Watery eyes? Runny nose? Congested? We know the feeling.

Having all of these symptoms at once usually means you have allergies, whereas, if it were a cold, you would typically have each of these symptoms separately. Also, a cold commonly comes on during the winter months, and seasonal allergies are more common in the spring, summer and fall, since this is when trees, plants, and grasses are pollinating. Unfortunately though, indoor allergies can cause symptoms all year long.1

So, what do we do about these allergens making our life miserable?

First, we can start where we spend so much of our time. Today we discuss a few ways to reduce allergens in the home.
