Behind every strong working mother, there's a village.
Whether you count on your babysitter for carpool, your neighbor for a night out or even your stay-at-home mom friends for sick days, Care.com wants to know: who's in your village and how did you find them? As part of the Care.com Interview Series, we hunted down some of our busiest working mom bloggers to find out. Check out what they have to say about who's in their village and what it took to build it.
- "I would DIE without Becky, our Super Nanny. I stole Becky from daycare. I know, it sounds really bad. But as a professional recruiter, I was easily able to spot the caretaker with the most talent and pick her right out of there." -Meredith Soleau, Life's Crazy Joke
- "My "village" was grown from friendships where we all had babies at the same time! My friends are a wonderful source of tips and encouragement and "oh my gosh, me too!" that we mommas so need to hear." - Beth Anne Ballance, Heir to Blair
- "We are lucky that most of our villageis family who love and care for our children more than we could ever ask, but when we had to let our last live-in nanny go it was very stressful."-Maija, Maija's Mommy Moments
- "There have been many times I've needed help picking up sick kids from school or watching one child while I take the other to the doctor. Even if I'm sick, my "village" would offer to sit with my kids while I healed."-Camille Langston, Make It Work Mom
- "I can't express enough how great it is to have people that you trust to take care of your kids every day. They love them, they teach them, they play with them... they are just a huge part of their lives." -Jennifer Williams, Momma Made It Look Easy
