I have felt so fortunate to find a group of moms with little ones close to Jacks age, who live on our hill. We began having play dates when the kiddos were newborns and still continue to see each other regularly. We do park dates, play dates, lessons, preschool fairs, walks and we spend an occasional evening away from our little ones sipping wine and chatting about everything under the sun. At first all the talk was about babies, as that was our common denominator, but as our friendships have grown so has the conversation. Now I think of them less as my “mom friends” and more as simply “friends” who all happen to have little boys Jack age.
On Halloween we had a gathering at one of their for drinks and treats and then walked to our neighborhood SRF for the annual Halloween festivities, with a balmy California breeze and a low hung moon, it was a perfect evening.
