One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Mommy Play-Group

Yay!! I am officially part of a mom's play-group! Travis and I met a nice family at the park a while ago, and the mom invited me to be part of her play-group that she was starting. The group meets every Thursday from 10-12:00. Today was my second time with the group -- they are great! The kids are all pretty close in age, give or take a few months.

The best part is that I have some new mom-friends :) I swear, meeting moms feels like dating again sometimes... you don't want to meet any of the crazies... the ultra-competitive mom, or the overly-protective mom, or the depressed mom, or the drunk mom, he he... you just want some normal mom time to chat about your experiences. I think I found a few good moms :)

I am going to miss my thursday play-group when I go back to work. I'm hoping to stay in touch with some of these girls and have our own play-dates.

Side-note: Travis should be returning home today around dinnertime. I'm hoping the kids go to bed easily tonight so that I can sneak off to the gym. I need some sweat-time!

Another side-note: Noah is smiling and cooing a lot now. It is adorable! I wasn't sure it was possible, but those chubby cheeks get even chubbier when he smiles -- it is the cutest thing!

Well I am not surprised that your beautiful baby boy has great smiling ability! He gets that from his parents!

LOL you are so right about the mom's and dating. You get a lot of that when your kid starts doing sports too...

I loved your mom analogy. I am working on starting a mom's club at work. I'm hoping this is a good way to stay in touch and meet some new mom's who have similar schedules. Yeah for dad's being home too!

I really need to join one of those mom's groups.
That's funny about the hundred cal packs. I do that--I buy W.W. ice cream cups and I eat them 3 at a time!

It is like dating! I found a group that I like, and it is so nice to have friends again. The kids are super cute!

I can't wait to see Noah in a couple weeks. Cambrie has just as chubby cheeks. I love them.

I am glad you like your new playgroup. It is always nerve racking attending your first time, but glad you went back again. I'll call you this week.

Totally like dating and no one ever told us that after we got married and had kids we would have to "date" again. I hope you've found some friends that just seem to "fit". It's always nice to have some girlfriends to hang out with... and that live close by. :)
