Activity #61: Count your friends

Whitney called me yesterday for advice about Scarlett’s nap and potential childcare arrangement and what to do about disrupting her sleeping mojo. I made up an answer and recalled how Milo got a funky nap schedule when he started “school” at 7 months old. If she liked what I said, she probably felt good about her decisions and went about her day. If she didn’t… she probably thought, “next!” and called someone else.

Make a list of your mom friends so you know your network when you have a weird question about sleeping, wonky nipples, babysitters, playgrounds, or anything! It can be an actual written list you keep some place in case you want to do a quick survey– or an email “group” you set up using your email program.

Whitney likes to do actual polls using the poll feature on Yahoo groups. Geek.
