But that’s not the point of this post. The point of this post is that it is HARD to find time both for YOU, and for you to SPEND TIME WITH YOUR FRIENDS. It is nearly impossible for me to return phone calls or emails, and to actually SEE a friend in real life, as in, LIVE and in person….well for get about it. Not happening.
Then I saw a flyer for a dance class in the mail. Not a mommy and me dance class that I had to participate in, but a dance class that only Addie could be in…the catch was I HAD TO WAIT there during the class, but OUTSIDE the class.
Ohhhh, I can work with this.
I quickly emailed 2 super close girlfriends. We NEVER get to see each other, and yet our girls are between 3-1/2 and 4-1/2. Oh look at that, that’s the age range for this dance class.
This is getting better.
As we looked at the schedule, we had about 16 chances to make this work….and would you believe only ONE actually worked for us all??
But one was all we needed.
And because it’s on a Saturday, the dads are at home to be able to take the other Littles. Now every weekend my 2 amazing friends and I get 45 minutes together, and our girls are having a blast dancing with each other! That is just a win-win anyway you want to slice it. And I for one am so thankful!
My tip for you, if your kids are old enough to be in a class on their own, but one that requires you to stay, call up a friend and make it your coffee date. Your Littles will love the time with their friends…..and you will love the time with yours.
Friends can do your spirits a world of good!
