I’m incredibly fortunate to have found a super bunch of girls in the neighbourhood who all have babies of the same age. When I say the same age, I mean almost literally the same age. All born in February 2012. In this neighourhood alone there were over 30 babies born in February. Yikes. There’s a group of 5 of us who get together almost daily. These fabulous girls keep me sane. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job as a stay at home mum, I’m never going to pretend that I don’t. It sure isn’t an easy one, but it’s fun and super special. So when the opportunity came to celebrate one of the girls’ birthdays, it felt as though we were toasting to more than just another year lived. Our lives have changed dramatically, we’re all first timer’s to parenthood and all separated from our families and familiar support systems. So there was something in the eating of cake and toasting of bubbly that united our kindred spirits and congratulated us all for doing not a bad job….so far!
I guess we’re not doing such a bad job after all….
