How to fix a friendship
I think as moms, we get so wrapped up in our lives that we forget about our friends. We know they're important. We still think about them, their families, their lives, but we run out of time every day to make a call or a text or a post that says "Hey dear, just thinking about you."
I have a friend in California that I grew up with. We've known each other since we were 5 years old. Every year when I make my trip back home I let her know what days I'll be there. She empties time during one evening and we always do dinner and a few cocktails. We do more if we can, but at least that much to let each other know that, even at 1,700 miles away , even though we never have time to call, even though most of our conversations are on facebook, we're still an important force in each others lives.
She's pregnant with her first after years of fertility treatments. I so wish I was closer to her especially now. But she knows I'm there, though not physically, and we both know that next year when I visit, we'll still do dinner.. only with babies on our hips... finally.
This article is great because it pinpoints some common issues that may come up now that we're moms. Like our kids not getting along, financial issues between friends, divorce, etc.
