Mom friends are essential. They are the ones who best know what your motherhood journey feels like. They are the ones who can commiserate on bad days (like when you've had way too many exploded diapers or when you've forgotten to send a lunch with your kid to camp) and the ones who can high-five you when things are good (like when have a successful pool outing with no tantrums or when your little one actually eats his broccoli!).

So, how do you go about making mom friends? Take our survey and tell us.
