Becoming a mother can be an incredibly isolating experience. Even from the earliest days of a child’s life, you become less a carefree woman with time to hang out with your friends and more a slave to your child’s ever-changing schedule and routine. Motherhood is a special vortex of crazy that only other mothers can truly comprehend.
Motherhood can feel like a blur of sleepless nights, endless crying, and crippling overwhelm. It’s no wonder that some have such a hard time adjusting when it is truly one of the most transformative time periods you can imagine. It’s enough to make anyone go mad. Which is why mom friends are so important.
Mom friends are those women who also know how hard it is and are there for you no matter what. They don’t judge, and they don’t get put off by cancelled plans, messy living rooms, or broken promises. Mom friends know what it’s like to be in the thick of it, because they are there too.
The beauty of mom friends is that they don’t even have to be just like us. When you have a true unicorn mom friend, all your differences fall away. All that’s needed is an open heart, listening ears, and lack of judgement. If you have mom friends like this, then you’re truly #blessed.
Although it can be difficult to make new friends, the right kind of mom friendships are priceless. An invaluable lifeline in the whirlwind of parenting life.
So here’s to all the mom friends who hold us up and keep us afloat! We love and appreciate you!
