Lending a Hand to Other Moms

Babysugar Diaries: Accepting a Helping Hand

Before taking off on a trip on Friday morning, my cousin called and asked me what she could bring to our destination to make my life easier. Mother to a six–month–old herself, I told her not to bother. Refusing to take "no" for an answer, she ordered me to make a list.

When we arrived, she showed up with a second Pack 'N Play, wipes, YoBaby yogurt, Cheerios and a load of fresh fruit. Thankful for her generosity and thoughtfulness, I brought her a small token of my appreciation though a helping hand when you are a mom. She made schlepping a crib from coast to coast unnecessary.

Next time you've got a friend with kids in tow coming to visit, offer to make a shopping trip before their arrival to get the items they need. And if someone reaches out accept gracefully.
