Since I became a mum, I have reconnected with old friends..strengthened friendships…and found new friends.
It’s amazing how children can bring two old friends together. Friends I hadn’t spoken to in years…I got to holla at them whenever I needed to know something about taking care of a child.
Then there were my friends who became first time mums just like me. We were oblivious of what to do. Scared. Anxious. Happy. All at the same time. Conversations would be ‘Is your baby doing this…?’ ‘You’re awake at this ungodly hour as well? Yey!’
Then there were those who I’d never met. But was introduced to by mutual friends. Finding out we shared common values…experiences…brought us closer. And the introvert in me, didn’t think I could make new friends. Here I am chatting away to a total stranger! Motherhood changes you for sure…lol!
All in all, I feel blessed. I have never felt alone in this journey of being a mother. Whenever I feel alone, someone texts me assuring me they’re there. Whenever I’m down, *bleep bleep* an encouragement message from a new friend. I am truly blessed.
Now to plan those playdates…. 🙂
