A person should not be alone. I know this, but it is so easy for me to crawl into my secure shell and hibernate in my safe house. It is easier to not pick up the phone. But I can't do that anymore. Having three small kids is so freakin' hard somedays. Especially when my husband is out of town and baby girl has a bad cold. I practically go crazy. Sleepless nights and and raging hormones equals someone who probably should be slipped a Prozac in her morning coffee. But, in place of mood altering drugs I am choosing to venture out of my shell once again and actually participate in friendships. I feel like a new person this week. So thanks to all the Moms (yes I mean you too Jan) out there helping me out of my shell, your perfectly timed phone calls, park days, play dates, emails and facebooking (is that a word?) are wonderful. I love my husband, but when I bitch about my afternoon with naughty tantrum throwing children YOU understand. He tries and then pours me a glass of wine. But YOU provide empathy. Thank you.
And to Ms. T soon to be a mom in Georgia I will call you to make sure you don't crawl into your shell.
