BABBLE BEST - MOMMY BLOGGERS
Mommy bloggers make a difference. Sometimes it's their confessional tone that helps you feel like you're not the only one, sometimes their simple honesty puts you at ease, and sometimes they're so funny, you almost snarf your protein shake. There are the bloggers we relate to and there are others we watch like a train wreck, but no matter where we're coming from, we're all part of the same overwhelming, magical situation.
That's why we're dedicating the inaugural Babble Top 50 list to those who know best: moms. Babble staff and contributors compiled our top mommy-blogger picks based on the following criteria: most controversial, funniest, most confessional, best design, most useful and best written (though we left off Babble's own mommy bloggers because, as with our own kids, we couldn't possibly pick a favorite). These are our picks, but we're sure you'll have something to say on the matter, too.

Busy Mom strives to be relatable. We’re all busy moms or parents, and what’s more, her tagline probably applies to all of us too: we support “better parenting through coffee.” Busy Mom is 44-years-old, has been married to Busy Dad for eighteen years, and has three kids: Busy Girl, 14, Busy Boy, 12, and Busy D, 7. For some, Busy Mom’s life will be too similar to the humdrum of their own daily routine, and the pitter patter and occasional zoning out of their own thoughts. Other moms will find a true friend in Busy Mom - who is non-judgmental, easy-going and has mundane worries like them: to coupon or not, and the never ending sports practice/carpool shuffle. Moreover, the repetition of the word “busy” (Busy Girl, Busy Boy, Busy Mom) takes away the word’s power. We’re terribly busy - yes, that’s true, argues Busy Mom, but acknowledging our chaos can only help us.
