Dear Friend,

I am sorry I have not been the best at getting back to you these days. You see, I have a new little human that demands 11110% of me. You and I, we use to talk all the time. Phone calls were easy when he was a newborn. Now, there is someone tugging at me or trying to rip my headphones out of my ears (hopefully I will get those air pods soon!). If I am not being tugged at, I am being asked random questions from the hubs. I know, you would think I would get asked when I am off the phone. But for some reason, they pop into his head the minute I am not paying attention. Apparently, this is common from what my aunt tells me.

I see your missed calls and I really try my best to return them but there is always something that comes up as soon as I go to return the call. Someone is hungry, someone is thirsty, a diaper needs to be changed, etc. Good thing we live in a world where we can text. Even texting sometimes can be difficult due to my little one trying to grab my phone. I scroll through your posts on social media, even if I do not respond or “like”. It is normally at about 2am or 5am when I am nursing my little guy. I love seeing what you are up to.

My world has become hectic between working, being a wife, and being a mother. I try not to forget that I am also a friend. I do my best to send out texts or posts so that you know I am thinking of you. If you do not hear from me in a while, please know that I am still thinking of you. If I do not return a call or text for days, it is nothing personal. Its simply the life of a mother. I hope you understand. It will not always be like this, but for now, its all I can do.

XOXO – Your Friend

New mom here! Just learning how to be the best mom I can be. Between working full time, keeping my other business alive (I am a candle maker), and now blogging, I am learning how to juggle it all. Thank goodness for my husband who works from home and is a great support system. I hope you enjoy this site :)

  1. Having friends, and being a good friend, is so hard in this stage of life! It’s extra hard because you NEED friends so desperately! I’m always so thankful for friends who stick through it with me and forgive my scattered attention.
