For me, this wave of friendship has been one of the most binding and heartfelt I have ever experienced. Perhaps it is all the hormones, perhaps it is because you see these people when you haven’t slept for the night and nurse in front of each other covered in a shirt soaked in breast milk…(and maybe even sometimes it’s the common thread of wanting to rip out your husbands eyeballs for even asking you one more time what time the baby naps????)…or maybe it’s that they know when you need a glass of wine at 430pm and there’s not even a single side eye accompanied with it. Whatever the reason, these friendships have grown to be a stronghold to my weeks, their kids integral parts of Morgan’s days, and their understanding something I never knew I needed.
You all know who you are. Beyond grateful for all the segmented adult chats while corralling the rascals. Your empathy, knowledge and faith in me as a mom makes my world.
