secondmamas

I feel so grateful for the group of lovely ladies that we get to spend time with. When I am with them I find myself thinking every child needs a “second mama”, because that is what they are. Second mamas take your child to the bathroom with them, or hold your child’s gum while they eat a bagel. They are not a replacement for mama they are more mama. That’s what these ladies are. We wander in a pack taking over cafes and parks and our children, if they want, can reach for any hand they see and be held, they can reach for any snack and be fed, they can say “Mama!” and four heads will turn. That is fortune.

    Oh how lucky you and your kids are. I love the blessing of close friends who parent in a similar way and who love your kids as you love theirs.
