    An open letter to my mothers’ group.

    As we (all too rapidly) approach the Little Mister’s first birthday, I have a few posts planned to celebrate not only him, but my first year of parenthood. This is the first one – an open letter to my mothers’ group (I used an apostrophe because it’s totally ours as well as us being a sum of mothers in the plural sense – don’t know why I felt the need to explain…).  Pic   Dearest Mothers’ Group, I can’t believe it’s been almost a year of parenthood and almost a year of knowing you ladies.

Well, maybe not quite yet…that could be a little crazy – my bags aren’t packed!!!…but I do admit that I am starting to see light at the end of the gestational tunnel (wait that could be a gross analogy – don’t go there) and there are so many things I’m looking forward to – besides cuddling my beautiful baby, sharing him with my loved ones and feeling that overwhelmingingly mushy bunch of feelings people go on about. However, I am wary…
