I'm the mom sitting on that lonely bench as my toddler plays. Oh we moved so much during my mommyhood days its been very difficult. You make a friend or two and then you move. You don't know whether or not to make new mom friends or not because you may move again. Heartbroken over the ones that are far away you sulk in your thoughts at that park. Mom friends are so crucial. They understand you like no one will because they too are raising kids. To relate to someone is the best feeling ever. Someone who understands that motherhood is hard and keeping up your relationships are even harder. Someone who is there when you are sleep deprived and just need an ear to listen and understand. Share some chocolate and wine when you had a hard day at work or just share some laughs. When you are pregnant join some mom groups because these moms will become your best friends & confidants. They will ride that rollercoaster of motherhood with you & attend much needed wine & playdate sessions!
