Mom Friends

Dear Mommy Friends,

What a crazy journey we have been on. From having newborns and how to swaddle to breastfeeding woes and colic, teething and blow outs, crawling to running, both the ups and downs of motherhood and now we are on the brink of potty training and getting baby fever all over again.

We all met from different groups, playdates and get togethers. But what ultimately kept us all together for the past 2 years, wasn’t the fact that we all had babies who were weeks apart in age, all lived in the same city, shared the same mothering beliefs, but it was was our mutual and common love of… food & alcohol. Seriously. I’m not kidding. This is our get out of the house for one night and relax and enjoy booze and dinner while our husbands put the kids to bed group {and where we learned to pump ‘n dump after we returned home} turned sewing/knitting group and weekly playdates.

Here sitting at an end of summer BBQ, while our toddlers freely ran around the backyard and played with their friends who they’ve been around since birth was amazing.

Blessed to have these ladies in my life while we travel through this journey of motherhood together.

    I have a group of mom friends online… but they all live pretty far away. We met through a Birthclub and like yours, all of our kids are within days/weeks apart in age. I soo wish I lived close to them so we could get together. I was lucky enough to visit SC and got to meet up with 3 of them and 4 babies, we had a blast! How cool that you get to do that on a regular basis!

      Thank you! I do hope you find a group in your neighborhood with little tots that are Colin’s age. Playdates are more sanity savers for the moms to be able to chat and hang out. Especially at this age, the kids kind of just play next to each other, rather than playing together.
