How Are You?

It's been 8 months since I had my babies, and this past weekend was the first weekend I went out and had a nice night with a friend! I've been so consumed with making sure Tommy was a happy and healthy growing boy that I forgot about myself for a while there. I mean..... isn't that what mothers do? 

It's certainly not that people haven't reached out because they have. People have been amazing! A part of me just needed to lay low for a while. Partly to heal, and partly because I knew when I saw people, I would be faced with the inevitable question. 
How are you? 
I mean why wouldn't a friend ask me that? Why wouldn't a friend be concerned with my well being? But it was a question I dredded. I dredded it because deep down I felt that if I was asked about my daughter I might crumble.

Well, guess what? I didn't! 
This weekend was a HUGE step for me. It proved to me that the past 8 months in hiding was exactly what I needed. I needed that time to process what happened and thanks to a wonderful friend who didn't push, I faced it and spoke about it freely. It was exhilarating! 
Thank you Heather for the delicious Italian spread, the fabulous champagne, your compassion, great energy and most of all friendship!
