Well, the city of Mobile pretty much emptied out this week.
School was out and it was beach time.
No matter that it was 40 degrees, away we went.
My friend Paula , the most courageous woman I know, who threw a secure life in Atlanta to the winds to make a nest by the bay in Florida, has been having hard financial times.Starting a new job with a dead car is not easy.
So we were able to roll up with four good wheels, good will and groceries in the nick of time.
Paula, Stephanie, Dana , Stacey and me...we are each other's bankers, psychologists, mixologists, strong backs and loving arms , as needed....So the tribe gathered....
Mariah was horrified at the idea of working while Caitlin and I were off, so she came too.
My niece Holley appeared at just the right time and hopped on board.
I t was so relaxing..
.long talks....long walks....enjoying the kids as grown up friends now.
I loved the fact that our kids all stayed with us and didn't do the drunken condo scene...we are the fun moms! I love getting to know people I loved as children as adults.
If you enjoy your kids while they are little, you won't have to wonder where they are when they are older.and I know that it's never too late to have a happy childhood...even if you're riding on the coat tails of the one you made for someone else.
