The only person who knows what it is like to be a working mom is a mother who worked. So, I know.
How many of you would like to babysit your grandkids? I know I would love to. But in order to make that work, you have to live nearby. And your kids have to want it and they have to be appreciative.
I have met two mothers who are doing it. Their daughters gush over them and tell everyone that they could not work and raise their children without their mothers.
I want to be that mother and grandmother.
I want a close relationship with my grandkids. I want to be a part of their lives AND I want to help my daughter. I would help ALL working young mothers if I could because I am not sure that the hodgepodge arrangements we have in place are honestly “working”
