*Just realized I never posted some rambling from way back in February 2014. I think I'll post it now, because in my sleep deprived new mommy phase, I just typed without fear of censure. Isn't that the best when honesty comes through in your writing?*

Well it's been six weeks since Keelie came into our lives, and I realized something the other day, as I was at the grocery store.
Is it because most big humans have a fear of little humans? The loud noises, the runny noses...the stinky bums? I don't know, but if that's the case, we need to get over it and realize that moms may not have The Glow pregnant ladies do, but it's because they have spent sleepless nights trying to calm the unconsolable child, or wiping noses and rubbing chests with vics, or cleaning up bedsheets when theres been an accident.
As a mom myself I know that there have been plenty of times where I (in my own weakness) have treated another mom with indifference, when I could've provided help. Us moms gotta stick together! Even when we get that miracle of a chance to actually go to the grocery store without our kids. Especially then actually.
We are all dealing with a thousand things and every mom has her set of challenges, so lets all be a little more kind to each other. And when you hold the door for that cute pregnant lady, think about the time when you'll be able to help her when she's a crazy mom just trying to keep her family from falling apart!
