His mama Jennifer is the sweetest soul and she’s one of my favorite people to come visit the studio. She has this sweet spirit and always wants to know how our family is doing. While I make it a goal to encourage mamas in my studio, Jennifer seems to do a better job that I do.
Together we talked about how seasons of stay-at-home mama-ness, can be so isolating. About how hard it can be to find good friends or even to meet with new friends around baby nap schedules and errands that have to be ran. We talked about how encouragement is so vital to every mom and how date nights are vital to marriages.
So, mama of one in The Baby Year, Jenn and I want you to know that you’re not alone. You’re not alone in the exhaustion or the loneliness. You’re not alone in the feeling neglected. You’re not alone in the wondering how to preserve your marriage.
You’re not alone in the longing for true friends or the longing for time with your true friends. You’re not alone in the simultaneous treasuring of each moment and longing for bedtime and few minutes alone.
Take a risk, mama. Share your heart with another mama, free of judgement and with a sweet open vulnerability. Your new friend is probably the one sitting right next to you playgroup. Or the photographer you’re hanging out with in her studio.
