Seven years ago my best friend and I took a picture of our kids on a couch.
That was back when “visits” didn’t involve adults talking because there were five kids under five.
Just let that sink in a moment.
Jane was born 16 days after I posted that.
Just let that sink in for a moment.
….(That makes 6 under 5 if you are still counting.)…
Fast forward seven years.
Same kids (plus one) different couch.
They play with each other now.
As someone who used to try to visit with her best friend when all the kids just yelled “Mine!” as they stole toys from each other, needed to nurse, have their diapers changed, and be fed yet another snack, all at the same time I’m hear to tell you – it still feels like a miracle.
They play with each other now, it’s amazing.
My friend and I actual talk and laugh and do things we want to do when we get together.
We are living proof that there is life on the other side of diapers.
