31 Days, Day 24: Girlfriends

This morning we had a playdate over at a sweet friend's house. Between the three of us Moms, we had 2 three year olds, 2 two year olds, 1 one year old and 2 babies. Her home buzzed with activity but, the conversation was easy and I feel so blessed to have friends that are in this same stage of life.
These friends don't care if you show up in your jammies, they actually encourage it! These friends know that  hot coffee is practically mandatory...especially with Sugar-Free Peppermint Mocha creamer. These friends serve your child a bowl of Cheerios and then don't even blink an eye when she turns around and spills the entire bowl onto the floor. 

The conversation is often interrupted, babies fuss, toddlers fight, preschoolers get time-outs for playing with light switches and my kids politely ask  say they want  sandwiches but we're all there, in the same spot and it's a good spot to be in.....together. 

So, for Day 24 of "Celebrating the Moments that Matter", I'm celebrating friends.....real friends that don't judge or if they do, they hide it dang well. Just kidding. :)

    1. Stephanie,
      Are you part of a MOPS group? Go to http://www.mops.org/ and find a group in your area. I highly recommend it and PLEASE email me if you have any questions and I'll point you in the right direction.

      I know how hard it can be to not have that "group". I hope you find yours soon!
