Moms who have family immediately available as parental support are so lucky.
I was one of those moms. I had always lived close to my parents and my sister.
If I needed anything at all, like someone to take the overnight shift or a gopher to fetch prunes during a BM crisis, help was just a phone call away.
My village would do anything to support me at a moments notice… until my husband’s job moved us away from my beloved village.
