The Online Village: Why Moms are Always on Their Phones

“Seriously, what are you looking at? Who are you talking to?”

“No one. I’m just on Facebook.”

“Facebook, Instagram. You’re always on there. I don’t see what could possibly be so entertaining.”

It’s true. I’m on my phone quite a bit. And in talking to my other mommy friends, so are they. In fact, I can see that they’re active on Facebook right now, or how long they’ve been inactive. I can tell that they were up with the baby at 4am or that it’s dinner time because social media is radio silence. So why are moms on their phones all the time? What exactly is your wife doing as she stares into that bright screen?

Finding Your Mom Tribe

Motherhood can be one of the most isolating jobs on the planet. You are never alone – not even to go to the bathroom most days – yet sometimes the weight of loneliness is so heavy you can barely move. Our minds are racing, our bodies are tired, and our hearts are full. Even if you venture off into the “real world” each day, your most important job is a 24/7 gig. And those tiny bosses sticking their hands under the bathroom door are relentless and unforgiving. Sometimes us moms need someone to talk to that understands how we feel and who has been in our shoes. Every mom needs a mom tribe.

What once came second nature as a child, is now one of the hardest things to do as an adult.

How to Create a Bunco Group

As busy moms, we sometimes don’t carve out enough time for friends and fun, and if we do, it’s usually once in a blue moon. If you’re craving some lady time that is consistent, fun, and “rewarding”, then consider creating a Bunco group with your gals!

Bunco… you mean the game that my grandma plays at her retirement home? Yup, that’s the one! But, believe it or not, it’s a game that has no age prejudice, and is just as fun if you’re 20 or 80. Grandma may or may not bring the booze, but we bet she loves the quality time spent with her friends, the magical feeling of lady luck on her shoulder, and the chance of becoming Bunco Queen complete with a wad of cash in hand as she waddles back to Room #3B.

3 Conflict-Free Ways to Discuss Infant Feeding

As a new mom, we’ve all had that awkward moment where we are not sure if we can ask another mom for advice about feeding because we are afraid to start a breast vs. bottle debate. 

If you feed your infant formula, breastfeeding moms think you don’t care about the health of your baby.  If you are a breastfeeding mom, formula feeding moms think you are an exhibitionist that feels superior to them.  A few extremely negative people may hold those opinions.  However, the overwhelming majority of moms just do the best they can and spend more time feeling judged themselves rather than actually judging others.
