The “Mommy meet up” turned out better than I had imagined. Normally, I blend into “groups” quite well, because I loves to talk to people and believe me, I’ll talk to anyone who’s willing to listen. I did feel somewhat uncomfortable and akward today around these women. It wasn’t anything they did, they were very friendly. I blame my vagina. She’s all stuck up today.
I don’t know, I just wanted to say “vagina.”
I talked to a few of the women, but I ended up wandering off by myself and taking pictures of ma’ girl. Not very “group like” of me, but I’m telling you, I felt… uncomfortable.
My favorite moment of the day happened when we joined the group for some “bubble blowing” fun. My daughter couldn’t participate because she still isn’t walking (almost, though!) So, she just stood there, watching and pointing. I felt sad that she couldn’t run and chase the bubbles like the other kids, because I could tell she wanted to so badly. My heart broke a little watching her standing all alone. As I watched and wept a little on the inside, the cutest little girl walked right up to her and smiled. Gabby got so excited, started waving and said “Hi!”. They just stood there staring at one another, smiling, talking baby talk. It was such a precious moment and as I watched, I realized that this was “one of those moments” that I’ll never forget, even when she’s older, I’ll think back on it and smile, maybe even cry a little, because, oh my GOD, it was so sweet. I’m thrilled to have been able to capture the moment.

Another nieghbor dropped off two more bags full of school supplies. He said if we needed more, to let him know and he’d gladly buy more. Two more people called saying they’ll bring stuff tomorrow. It’s awesome to me that people are being so generous. Not many of my neighbors have responded, but the few who have? Completely generous and kindhearted. I’m so grateful and can’t wait to ship these things off to Houston.
Now, if only the Post Office will be so kind and generous… Ha, as if…
