I think it was a lot different staying at home raising children 50 years ago... Family and friends lived nearby and women largely a all helped each other with EVERYTHING. From"wash day" to borrowing a cup of sugar. I live no where near my family, and In a lot of ways think I'm way more isolated than even my mother was.. I guess I'm throwing this out into the great wide pool that is a forum, looking for my "Village." I wouldn't trade motherhood for anything. I give my right kidney for a trusted friend.
