Love Is a Gift When Stay at Home Moms Support Each Other

Tracking Pixel
The decision to stay at home with your children can be complicated and stressful unless you have proper support. Thanks to blogging, freelance writing and the videos I produce, staying at home has been possible for me for the last four years. But staying at home or working from home can also be isolating. I think back on the years when I was surrounded by writers, producers and photographers in a busy newsroom. I miss it. Now that A.J.’s is in pre-k for a full day, my only companions while I work are satellite radio and daytime talk shows. That’s where the importance of stay at home moms support plays a role. I’m delighted to share this with you as part of a sponsored campaign with MassMutual’s social media campaign with LoveIsAGift.com.

Love Is A Gift

 

Stay at Home Moms Support

I’ve joined several meetup groups for support and even bonded with my fellow bloggers, like Ashley from @MommyWeek. We met on Facebook, and then met in real life at a play date in Atlanta and our children have bonded. If I tell A.J. we’re going to see Ms. Ashley’s kids, he gets very excited. Her sons are older and he likes to learn from them. In fact, her daughter and A.J. were born on the exact same day! I only wish I’d known Ashley sooner because it would have been fun to have a friend like her to share our pregnancy journeys together.

Our Children

But whenever I see her – at a playdate, blogging event, or when she joined me for my birthday manicure pedicure treat to myself – she’s supportive and funny – about our lives as stay at home/work at home moms.

 

Every time I see my blogging buddy @MommyWeek she shows me #LoveIsAGift. Oh and our babies were born on the same day! AD

  4. Moms often hear about “support systems,” but it isn’t always easy to find one. You are definitely one of the lucky ones! What a great experience, being able to share and encourage each other and your families! Btw, love this sort of campaign!

  8. Going on 11 years as a work at home mom and I have to say that my online community has kept me going.

    I’ve made some great relationships on here and what I’ve learned to most is that pst times you have to create your own community.

  9. I love it. I’m so glad to know some of the fun and supportive local mom bloggers too! I get really stir crazy at home after a while, and now that I’m 100% work-at-home consulting, I look for more opportunities with friends.
