This article couldn't have said it better.
I've been a mom for almost a year now and I'm terrible at keeping in touch.
I don't return calls and I don't check my voicemail.
If you reach me, you have. If you haven't, sorry.
I'm a bit better with texting and emails.
But even those leave conversations unfinished with responses coming hours and sometimes days late.
I know my mom friends understand but I worry others think worse.
To my friends with out kids, here you go.
My excuse, my defense, my explanation.
