When my children were babies, I made friends with other women who had babies. We four met while teaching at the same school part-time, and we had friendships of convenience. We once even started a babysitting co-op, trading popsicle sticks for childcare hours.
Over the years, these friendships deepened, and we added in my sister, Tami. We supported each other through various life changes, both the triumphs and the challenges. Our children have all made it out of diapers and into school. We’ve been together through many transitions and will be together through many more.
Recently my wonderful friend, Jeannie, had us and all 19 of our family members to her home for one of our periodic potlucks. Great food, kids who like each other, a bottle (or 2) of wine, and friends who are always there for you.
