I've been a bit emotional lately (more on that in a minute) and really been mourning the loss of that good friendship. Ok, mourning isn't the right word, but maybe "recognizing" the loss. The difficult part is, our children attend many classes together (remember, we homeschool?) and so I have to see their family on a regular basis. Makes the absence a little more.... obvious.
This week I found out that this former friend is pregnant. And guess what? [drumroll please....] I am too! So it's making me even more nostalgic about how fun it could be to be pregnant together, and recognizing that it's just not going to be like that. It's ok. It's a stage. But I can still "miss" it. And be emotional. ha.
So if you want to be my pregnant buddy, I'm totally looking for new applicants. JUST KIDDING. Yes, for those of you counting, this will be our #4, and this is the first time I'm really wishing I had that pregnant buddy along for the ride with me. It's just that every pregnancy is less and less glamorous (if you have had more than one, you KNOW what I am talking about) and I'd love to share it with a good friend.
Happy Saturday, strange world!
