People think we've known each other forever. It was really only just 8 years ago when I introduced myself to her at a track while she was jogging laps as I was training one of my first clients. Divine intervention.
She started as my very first boot camp mom, then friend, now family. Without siblings or parents nearby we’ve quickly become that for each other, filling those roles that they play when you have them geographically close to call on.
6 kids between us (7 if you count the adopted girlfriend, which we of course do). Ages 17-4 (ahhh that little one!). The lines are blurred most times as to who is mothering whose kids. Since we’ve known each other, whatever has had to be survived or celebrated through the ups and downs that come with a family of 7 kids, 4 adults and 4 careers--- we've survived and celebrated together.
Couldn't have been happier or more grateful to spend yet another (our 7th?) Mother's Day with this friend that makes motherhood and (fake) adulting 100 x better. I probably would have quit this mom gig (and following what drives me) years ago if it wasn't for you and your light Kendrya Close. xoxoxo
