so lucky

Six years ago this month, I joined a County-run New Mom's Group.  20 ladies and their new babies for 8 weeks of "classes", and a place to meet other new Mom's.  Who knew that 6 years later we would still get together weekly, and rely on each other.  I don't know where I'd be today if it weren't for these ladies.  The help and support we give each other to get through the tantrums & trials and all of the happy moments.  All the coffee we've drank & snacks we've consumed while our children learn how to play with others.  Through hitting and biting, kicking and screaming they are lucky to have wonderful friends that they've known their whole lives.  Next year will be a year of change, as the 6 year olds will be gone to school all day.  I hope we're able to keep these friendships up for them as our lives get a little more crazy.
