Amid the hustle and bustle of this wonderful season, it's really important for me to consciously step back, catch my breath, and re-energize. I hope you're finding time to do the same!
I had a pretty fabulous week with my baby girls...and I managed to log some "me" time in there, too!
On Thursday night, after all our respective kiddos were in bed, I met with three fellow twin mamas from our MoMs group.
Over gigantic cups of hot tea, we had a really productive meeting, outlining our full 2012 schedule. (Did you happen to hear our collective WOO HOO!!! at accomplishing such a task?!)
Of course we talked about more than meeting topics and picnic venues.
I've known one of these ladies since we met in the prenatal classes at the hospital, a couple of months before our babes were born. Her B/G twins are exactly one week older than A&B. The other ladies I met through our MoMs group, and their twins were born within 9 months of ours.
We've worked closely together as part of our group for a couple of years now. Even when we have "work" to do, it's still always so refreshing just to be around them.
They get it. Completely.
These mamas are such a wonderful, warm, supportive group (and their kiddos are pretty fantastic, too). I learn so much from them...and they might just make me feel a little more "normal"...or at least remind this high-strung mama she's not alone on this amazing journey. :)
What did you do for YOU this week?
You're welcome to link up, or just leave a comment. Then sit back, grab a cup of hot tea if you'd like, and see how other mamas carved out a little time for themselves this week.
