time with friends

these days, man, is it hard to be social.  any mom, and I would assume, working moms especially, have so little time to spend time with friends.  however, sometimes those stars align, and after a few weeks of texting, a date is set!

last week I met up with one of my first teaching friends for a dinner date with our littles.  we hadn't seen each other since the start of the school year, and getting to catch up with a friend who totally gets it, is just sometimes needed.  we are both managing being good moms and being good teachers, and really, it is just a balancing act we sometimes have to pretend we are mastering every day.  and that's ok.  because even on days when we feel like maybe something isn't just right, neither our birth kids or school kids are noticing, just us.

so we shared our stories, and kids shared theirs too, and food was eaten.  mostly by the moms at the table, because, seriously, our kids kind of struggle at the whole dinner concept.  just one more thing that keeps us mom-bonded!

here are a few pictures from our night together.  these girls are just too cute, even if they don't get to see each other often, they always play together so well.
