An ode to my mom friends.

I’m so freakin’ thankful for other moms.

An Ode To Mom Friends

Playdates are our FAVORITE. Clothing optional.

I’m thankful…

+ For moms who watch my toddler when I’m nursing my baby at the playground.
+ For moms who open the door for me so I can maneuver my huge double stroller into Starbucks.
+ For moms who make me food.
+ For moms who bring me coffee or offer it up right when I get to their house.
+ For moms who host playdates.
+ For moms who organize playdates.
+ For moms who give me clothes that their kids have outgrown.
+ For moms who give me advice on eating and sleeping and laundry and everything else.
+ For moms who listen.
+ For moms who just ‘get it’.
+ For moms who tell me about fun things going on in the city.
+ For moms who reach out.
+ For moms who feed my kids lunch and snacks when I don’t have any packed.
+ For moms who volunteer for activities my kids participate in.
+ For moms who share their own stories so I don’t feel like I’m the only one going crazy.
+ For moms who inspire me with how intentional they are in their parenting.
+ For moms who show up.

Among the bijillion other things that I know my mom friends do for their own kids every day, it touches my heart that these women still have the capacity to pour energy and love into me and my kids, too.

I don’t know what I would do without my community of moms. And the moms I know are such rockstars that I’m inspired to be better because of them.

Thanks x 1000000.

    amen. some of the people that have surprised me the most with their generosity and thoughtfulness since becoming a mom have been the people that I also deem the busiest due to their duties as moms. you are one of those people, text messages from you always make me feel better and like I’m not completely ridiculous at this job.

      That’s so kind of you to say! I was just going to text you tonight but then I realized how late it is your time. I need an update on how you’re doing with that baby and that other baby! 🙂

    I’m not a mom yet, but just by observing the moms in my life (mommy bloggers counted), I see both difficulty and fulfillment in being a mom. I think having support throughoutdifferent seasons of life is so important and necessary for our well-being!
