Mommy Friendships

My writer friend, Kathy Sena, has an award-winning blog called Parent Talk Today. She recently interviewed me for a post on the topic of mommy friendships. Click here to see the post, which discusses several ways for multi-tasking moms to make new friendships. While "’mommy friendships" can pose challenges, sharing the experience of parenting with other women also presents opportunities to forge close female friendships that can last a lifetime.

Coincidentally, my friend Diana is coming for a sleepover tonight on route from Washington, DC to drop her daughter, Nikki, off at college. We first bonded as we worked out the kinks of breastfeeding while we were both on maternity leave from work.

Anyway, check out Kathy’s excellent blog!

    Hi I have a friend who does not have very good boundaries. I live in a small town, but I am a fairly private person who is social but also like my alone time. This friend has stopped by my house when I don’t answer the phone and once she comes over doesn’t leave until really late, I have no idea how to tell her nicely that it is now time for her and her children to leave. I really value our friendship, but her and her children are very intense and I don’t want to spend every waking moment with her. I think she would spend all the time with me if she could. Any advice? I want to be able to get together with her without being with her for the rest of the day.
    Also she seems to get irritated with me and think something is wrong when I don’t do what she wants or see her for a couple of days.
