“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.”
Busily “cooking” and preparing for a tea party at a jidokan (indoor public playspace).
Last weekend, we were invited to a birthday party of one of the kids who was in E’s birth group. We met the parents at a birth and labor class when we were in our 30-something weeks of pregnancy. We’ve kept in touch all these years and have watched our kids become big kids together.
Unfortunately, we live fairly far apart from each other so our kids only meet up once or twice a year. Even though we don’t get together often, when we do get together, the girls play really well with each other as if they’ve seen each other every day. It’s really great.
To make it more interesting, both S’s mom and I were pregnant with our second child at the same time. Neither of us planned it and we both didn’t even find out until we were well into our second trimester. She had a boy though while I had another girl.
Oh, and we’re both Jen! How funny is that?
