How does that work? Well, you go and have a play date with a friend that has almost the same family as you! That is how it breaks down!
I have a lovely friend Lisa (same age as me too!), and she has 5 kids (1 boy, and 4 girls) and 1 on the way due, 5 days after me. Our first kids (both boys) go to school together, and have known each other since preschool. And, 2nd borns (both girls) go to school together, and then we both have our 3, 4, and 5th girls. But in different years, and she had twin girls for her last pregnancy/delivery, and right now I have the youngest child, (Caroline) Our last kids will go to school together in the same year too! Gotta love that.
I love hanging out with her family, as our kids love hanging out with their family! It is so nice to be able to talk to a friend who has the same issues, and dilemma's and busy factor that I have everyday! We can totally relate to each-others lives. This is our first visit of the summer, but a lovely one at that. We have just been too busy to all get together!!
We talked about toilet training, our pregnancies, what we might be having, how that might affect the other kids and so on! What teachers the kids might get! Managing 5 kids with a belly etc. And just the people management we go through every day. It is always a pleasure when I am with her! Lisa even was there to watch my last delivery of Caroline! We are really close.
Anyways, so imagine next summer. There will probably be 2 boys, 10 girls, and 2 moms. That is how we see it anyways. We both thought we were having our bookends, but now we both feel we are having girls again! After all, we have the same family lol!! We will no doubt have the same sex again!
And, watching all the kids play together today was a delight! I cannot wait until our babies come!! Maybe we will have our last babies together on the same day! I could happen!
