The Sun is Shining

I am in such a great mood today. It's been one of those days where everything feels right in the universe and I am happy with my place in it.

I have no idea what happened, maybe it was getting out of the house and socializing yesterday.
I was really tired from all of our activities yesterday but I took the boys for an evening walk last night. As I was pushing my stroller though my neighborhood a lady ran down the street after me. I didn't hear her because I had my iPod playing and at first I wasn't sure she was talking to me.

She was holding a tiny, tiny baby and had come outside in white socks. She said: 'I know you're going to think I'm crazy but...'
I had no idea where she was going with that at first but then I saw her red-rimmed eyes, pale face and quivery voice as the signs of post-partum hormone-crash loneliness. I've been there and it's terrible. I was so touched that she thought I was someone that she should approach.
Basically she was going stir-crazy and needed another mom to walk around the neighborhood with. I promised I'd call and she said: "PLEASE do."

I will.

Speaking of new mom friends, the lady from the park the other week never called or emailed. I don't know why it bothered me but it did. I'm fine with it now.

In other news, weaning is going along fine. The boys haven't had nummies today. M pointed and said 'nummie ow' and I said 'that's right, honey Mama's nummies are a little tired' and he went back to playing. If one of them would've seriously cried to be breastfed I would have but they didn't.

I'm working tomorrow so probably won't blog...or maybe I will. We'll see.
