Sorry to use you ladies as a means for venting but I need to get this off my chest. It makes me so upset to think how far away my family is and how I am the only mommy among the close friends I've made here in Texas. I'm pretty close with 3 ladies and 2 are married and not interested in having kids any time soon if all and the third isn't married so she is not close to having kids. They always ask about Tigh and such but its not the same. I can't go on and on and ask questions and complain/rejoice about parenthood with them. I wish I could just make them have babies!! My best friend since childhood has a little girl only 10 weeks older than Tigh and she lives in Pennsylvania and my brother has a little boy only a year older than Tigh and he lives in Virginia. It just rips my heart apart when I stop and think about Tigh not growing up seeing them on a regular basis. Maybe its because I grew up in Virginia where I had a large family with lots of cousins. I know one mommy here with a two year old but I feel like that age difference seems so huge when they are this age so I'm not sure if a playdate would work out. These are times I miss home...well, I don't miss Virginia, but I miss my family.
Thanks for letting me vent.
