Last Sunday I went out to have brunch with a few other Brazilian mamas. We have a little group of moms here, with babies around the same age and we call this our “support group.” Once you become a mom, you need that. You need to find a group of women who are going through the same thing as you are, same motherhood struggles, same questions and joys. A group where you can share silly things, accomplishments, fears and they won’t judge you. Instead of that, they will listen to you and say that you’re NOT CRAZY! Because we often think we are.
I found a group like that since I had Dylan and those moms became part of my routine. We talk every single day and share pretty much everything. We often have playdates but, we were trying for awhile to go out just us, without babies! Now that the kids are getting a bit older, it’s becoming easier, too.
So anyway, last Sunday we went out to brunch (almost all the moms made it) and it was great! We went to Bubby’s on Tribeca. I love that place! We ate a lot, chatted a lot, laughed a lot and, we can’t wait to do it again. It’s so refreshing to get together with friends! Here are a few photos if you’d like to see:
