Everymommy needs a Stacey

At the risk of embarrassing her, because I know she frequents my blogs, I would be remiss if I didn’t talk about the importance of having a good mommy-friend. I am fortunate to have many friends with young children living here and around the continent and thanks to the power of the internet, my friends from all my former lives (high school, college and beyond) and I are still able to keep up with each other and the new children. And the internet is good.

What makes the bad days seem less long is knowing that on Wednesday mornings we go to our Mommy and Me group and that often I will go mall walking with my friend and her son who’s just a couple of weeks older than mine.

We first met at our childbirthing class and have been getting together almost every week since August. Now our boys are six months old, we’ve recovered from our cesareans, we’ve weathered the boys first illnesses, and entered into the world of solid foods and homeopathic teething tablets. There are only a couple of things for which I am more grateful than having a friend who has a son similar in age (and size) to mine, and with whom I share similar parenting philosophies.

Almost daily I consider how fortunate I am to have a friend like her, and what a difference it makes in my life. It has made navigating the waters of new-motherhood much smoother and I think every new mother needs a Staceyfriend.
