Is working from home the secret to coping with mommy guilt?

Our Mommy Talk Show guests are a mix of working and stay at home moms, but they share a common feeling: MOMMY GUILT!

How do you handle questions about Baby #2?

The moms in our Mommy Talk Show premiere were asked "How do you handle questions about Baby #2?" Maran's daughter, Ali, is an only child. When Ali turned 7, Maran and her husband decided their family of three was just fine. Karen's son, Michal, is also an only child. He was a surprise for Karen and her husband and they don't want to plan any family additions. If they add to their family, it'll be a surprise as well. Diane is also content with her family of three. She says people starting asking about Baby #2 when her son, Ethan, was about 6 months old. Diane and her husband may consider adopting an older child in a few years.
