I'm a married working mom. I babysit two of my friends' kids several times a week. I feel like my one friend looks down on me because I'm married and have help. I asked my one friend, lets call her Beth, to take my son for the day because we were feeling so sick (we caught a virus from my other friend's kid) and she said she couldn't because she had things to do around the house. Well...my husband and I always have things to do around the house but we do them with our son, her kid, AND sometimes a third kid with us. She got kind of snotty and said that I have my hubby there to help, so I should be able to handle it..she does everything on her own. Well, I feel bad that she's a single mom and works so hard and doesn't have a lot of help...that's why I watch her son for her so often! Not just when she's working but so she can have a days to herself! I kind of feel like its not fair! What do you think?

Every one has the right to tell us "No" and that doesn't require an explanation. If you think she looks down on you, that's another issue and perhaps you should re-evaluate the friendship. Single Mothers do have it harder than couples and that should go without saying.
