There is nothing as frightening, wonderful, overwhelming or amazing as being a mom. It seems that with every stage of childhood, there are new obstacles presented to parents. Just when you think you’ve got this whole parenting thing down, something unexpected is thrown your way. And as a mom of three, one thing I’ve learned is that I am not alone. For every problem there are other mothers who have or are going through the exact same thing. And there is really nothing more wonderful than knowing that someone else understands. That someone else has gotten through what you are currently struggling with and has some great advice.
It is equally as important to have someone to share all your triumphs as well. No one will understand the excitement of your baby sleeping through the night or your child saying, “I love you, mommy!” for the first time like another mom.

Earlier this year I created my own profile at Moms.com, but I didn’t really take the time to check out all the features until recently.
One of the unique features, and a personal favorite, is the Mom’s Moments. It allows members to create a moment of motherhood. This can be something as simple as a message with one of the simple graphics offered or you can upload your own photo and add text. You can even play around with the background design. I really love reading through other member’s moments. Some were funny or adorable while others were simply, every day moments in which we can all relate.
Another cool feature is the Moms Expertise. This section is based on your profile information. If you are trying to conceive or are pregnant, there are sections specifically for you. My children happen to fall into three categories: toddler, preschool and big kid. I can simply click on each of my kid’s profiles to move along the timeline. This allows me to quickly and easily talk to other moms with children in that same age group!
If you are looking for a fun place to feel that connection to other moms, I encourage you to check out all that moms.com has to offer!
