In my mom's group, we have been taking turns watching each other DC's while another mom goes to the dentist, whatever. We do it in a small group so it is not one mom and two babies.
One mom had a dentist appointment. Today two moms flaked out on me. One told me she had to run errands. WTF? You can't help me for an hour? She has a nanny one day a week. You can't run errands that day.
Another one lived less than a mile from the place and she told me she had to feed her daughter. We were meeting at a coffee house with a play area for kids. There are high chairs there.
Neither one of them asked if I would be ok on my own. Another mom unexpectedly showed up to help me. Thank goodness.
I guess when these two other moms need free childcare, I will be busy.
