Thankfully Pam, the only other mommy of our group at the moment, has graciously offered to visit us every monday just to spend time with me and help me out. Her daughter Lily loves Alana and Alana definitely follows her around like a little sister so it works out perfectly. Our first "date" was this past monday and I couldn't have had a better time. The kids laughed, Alana was funny as usual and Pam and I were able to squeeze in some mommy time and catch up. After our time together, it made me feel a little bit better about managing my relationships. I just have to get a little creative and find other ways to spend time with people.
Thank you Pam for the few hours of talks and laughs. I look forward to more Mommy Mondays to come! Can't wait. Maybe next week or the following, RJ can meet us up at the house and I can cook for both our families. What do you think?
(Sadly I forgot to take pictures of Lily and Alana playing. There's always next week!)
