Family Day

Family means a lot of different things to a lot of different people.  I have my “original” family: my mom, dad, brother & sister; my family: Blake and the kids; but I am also blessed to have a group of girls (and guys) that have been present in my life for the past 20 + years.  We have been through many highs and lows together and the only way to adequately and precisely describe them is family.  With Blake working today I was blessed to have the opportunity to meet up with a few of them today!

BUT.. you know what made it extra special to me.  They have all became moms recently!  I was the first homegirl to pop out a baby and the transition (like how it altered our relationships) was tough.  Definitely non-intentional on their part and no one would have noticed because the only person’s life who changed was mine.  I know some people can relate to me and know what I am talking about.  When you are the only one in the group who has wee ones things change– they just do!

So one of my friends has a 18ish month old, the other has a 3 month old and the other a newborn.  Watching each of them become moms is so amazing to me.  I am beyond proud of each and every one of them.  They are amazing mommies and I am so glad my playdates now include spending time with them.  Not to knock the amazing mom-friends I have met along the way.  I cherish my new friendships.

Let me know how you spent your family day if you reside in New Brunswick!
