To the sisters, brothers and friends who don't have kids yet but still want to hang, THANK YOU! You are important, a life line and while we may not say it as often as we should, we could not do parenthood without you.
Thank you for:
the visits even though our conversations are broken
loving my children even though their noses are running and my baby cries when you hold her
bringing me coffee and food
meeting me at the park so my child can play while we try to catch up
not judging my messy house
holding my baby while I throw in a load of laundry
being patient with me when I need to cancel because someone is sick
just being an extra set of hands and eyes
for caring enough to ask me questions about my kids
I love you so much and if you decide to have children of your own one day, I will be the first one to bring you food and clean your house, when you bring your babies home.
