MBS: Away with friends

Memories from being away
(with no kids!!!)
Actually, I'm the only one with a young child. Two of my friends have children that are in college (or older) and the other friend has high school aged children. As they liked to point out after several tropical drinks, they are all old enough to be my mother!!
Somehow, friendship defies age.


Critters

Reading and tropical drinks

For other MBS, visit Mother May I.

Good for you!! To sum up on your last few posts, sounds like many of us have been overwhelmed and stressed lately. I know I have. In fact I could use a couple days away, but it ain't gonna happen. At least the husband is healing well from the surgery.

Now if only I could clone myself.

friendship defies age.... that is so very true.

It's amazing that when you are younger... until about college... age is so important. You always know how old your friends are (especially because they are usually in your grade in school or whatever). Once you're out of school... and I think especially once you're a mom... it just doesn't matter any more.

Trip to the beach with no kids??? Wow! Good for you!
