Becoming a mom, is the most magical moment in women’s life. But it can also be very lonely time, especially if your friends don’t have kids. don’t get me wrong, it’s good to have friends that you can talk to about other things beside your baby, but it is also important to find other mom friends that you can connect to on other level. They are the ones that will help you go through all the sleepless nights, breastfeeding, teething, and all other new mom problems that your friends that don’t have baby can’t relate. They can understand you better than anyone else, because they are going through the same things.
Your mom friends won’t even blink if you are come late, because they are also running late because of their kids. So here are just few reasons why having a mom friend is beneficial for every mom.
No Mom Shaming
Your mom friend will not shame you if you give your kids junk food, or let them watch tablet a bit longer just so you can have 5 minutes to drink your coffee in peace. They will not judge you, because they understand than sometimes motherhood can be overwhelming, and you need 5 minutes to decompress so you don’t loose your mind.
You have someone to vent to
Your mom friends are the best listeners when you need someone to vent to. They will understand you, because, their kids also put them through same s… every day. So they know that is important to just listen, and let you blow out some steam.
They will understand if you cancel your play date last minute
Making plan when you have kids is sometimes impossible. A lot of things can go wrong in just few minutes. So when you have to cancel plans with your mom friend, she wan;t get angry, she will understand.
They will help you stay sane
Their friendship is very important. They will help you see that everyone goes through same things as you, and you are a good mom, despite how you feel. And they will let you talk trash about your mother in law, and your hubby, and they will join in, so you don’t feel like a bad wife.
