And I miss living close enough to her that we can see each other all the time. Our friendship is the type that flows smoothly. I'm fairly confident that we could be next door neighbors and that would work out great. I have a little fantasy about it in my head, even: we have coffee together in the mornings, work out together, see the kids off to school. Once a week or so we have dinner and force our equally non participatory husbands to play board games with us. We take turns watching each others kiddos with no one taking advantage or keeping score. The kids would just go in and out of both houses, like they have a "bonus mom" next door. The days where I never speak to another adult would be gone, and so (hopefully) would be the times when I feel like I am just so alone that I can't cope. Everyone needs a friend like that. And no matter how far apart we live, I am grateful to have one in her. She is probably my favorite thing out of Canada since The Red Green Show and Mounties.
Here are some pics from our trip. It makes me feel so grateful and gushy to see all four of our kids together.
Bows are very haute.
Rainbow Fake Hair = Awesome!
