BFF’s mom told Hubster that if he ever decides to leave me, she totally has dibs. She went to the car to get an umbrella to shade me during swim practice Saturday, telling the other mothers she has to “take care of her woman.”
This morning I posted on Facebook about how much I hope Princess never outgrows waving and blowing kisses to me until they are out of sight in the morning. She does it every single morning – unless she’s mad at me.
BFF’s mom piped in that on the mornings Princess is mad at me, she waves and blows me kisses instead.
I told her that I notice and appreciate that – and hope she never outgrows it either!
I joked with the swimming coach that the two of us are co-parenting the girls, but in many ways it’s true.
We’re a good team.
I thought Hubster and I were all alone on this journey until I finally let her in.
She thought she was alone, too, until she let me in.
She called half an hour before the girl’s were supposed to be at swimming Saturday morning. BFF had just gotten her “dot” (just one month behind Princess). They had no supplies and BFF was freaking out about swimming.
We abandoned our breakfast and went right over – as soon as Princess threw slim tampons, KY jelly, pads and feminine wipes in a bag for BFF.
We hugged BFF and her frazzled Momma. The four of us stood in the bathroom explaining to BFF how to use a tampon so she didn’t miss swimming. Then Princess stood outside the door and talked her through it. They made it to swimming practice almost on time and I joked with BFF about what a funny story this is going to make when she tells it to her own daughter one day.
Family comes in many forms.
If you’re feeling alone, I urge you to take a chance and pick someone to open up to. You might just be pleasantly surprised by their response.
