this weekend, i spent two days and two nights with five of my mgm (moms gone mild) friends. it was 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, 2 evenings, and 2 car rides of absolute bliss. we spent the weekend relaxing by the pool, talking, and giggling. lots of giggling. for just a few days, we got to be ourselves. we weren't mommies, we were just us. we remembered what it was like not to have responsibilities. it was so nice! there were no noses or bottoms to wipe, no food to cut, no teeth to brush, no sippy cups to assemble, and no sibling wrestling matches to break up. the only bad thing about all of that was that there were also no hands to hold, foreheads to kiss, sleepy kids to sing to, or funny faces to laugh at. don't worry, though, they were all waiting for us at home. we all came back refreshed, relaxed, renewed, and a little sunburned! some much more than others. it was without a doubt one of the best weekends in a very long time. there is nothing better than great girlfriends!
