I have a confession: I am in love with my Mommy Interns, aka Mother’s Helpers. I have a few on call for when I am feeling frazzled as a mom. You know, those times when you can’t seem to get a dish done because of the laundry that piles up. Or when you can’t even shave your own legs because of all the hygienic upkeep your kids require (all those nails, hair and teeth!). A Mother’s Helper can take your kids to the park to swing and play ball, color with your girls, play Legos and — perhaps best of all — change diapers! Read on to find out all you need to know about the wonderful world of Mother’s Helpers.

How do you go about finding this Kid Whisperer of sorts?

Keep your eyes peeled in the neighborhood for girls about age 10 and up. Put the word out with your friends, family and neighbors, and you should soon have more help than you could ever use. One of my Helpers lives a few doors up and we met at the park, while another approached me at church and asked if I needed some help wrangling my crew (the answer is usually YES!).
