Reading with Astrid

What you don’t know about these two is that this is rare. Ellen has that love/hate relationship with Astrid where she loves to make Astrid scream and she hates to share with her.

This morning I got together with some friends for some playtime together (both the mothers and the children…) and must say that I don’t think I would be able to be a SAHM without my friends. I live hundreds of miles from both sides of our families and when I think back on my childhood I have to admit to being a little sad. Only because Ellen will never know what it is like to go to Grandma’s on a weekly (if not daily at times) basis. This is why I am thankful for my local chosen family. Just this morning as my daughter coughed into the face of a baby (cringe!) & I was so happy to have that baby’s Mama correct her on the spot. I am thankful to have friends that can and will correct her; not because I won’t or don’t, but because they are family.

Thanks, guys.
