Let's face it, technological advances over the past couple decades have made our lives seriously cushy compared to, say, the late 1800s. But said technological advances have also made our lives incredibly fast-paced — and if you're a mom, it kinda feels like your on turbo-speed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Gone are the days where school, kids and relatives can make a request and expect and answer in a couple hours or days — everybody needs everything to be right now. We think it's only fair that the technology that has made us in such high demand all the time gives back a little. That's where apps for moms come in.
Sure, some mommy-shamers like to complain that parents are always glued to their smart phones, but what those people don't understand is our phones are directly linking us to magical apps that help us do everything from lock down a last-minute sitter to quickly locating a bathroom before one of our kids has an accident.
These apps are serious lifesavers.
