More Than a Playgroup

Dear H and O,

Today, one special part of our life found the end of its season. Our playgroup, which has been meeting at Erin’s house for the last 3 1/2 years met there for the last time. You have looked forward to playing with the kids each week, and we have all grown so close as we have shared this special season — the season when you were little! Some of the moms in our group are moving to the next stage — all of their kids are in school, so their days of playgroups are giving way to days of after school activities and classroom volunteering. We will find other playgroups, because you are little and need time in playgroups, but I have to tell you, I don’t know if we’ll find one quite like this. I’ve heard it said that if you have one true friend in motherhood, you are good. Through this playgroup, I found seven. This group of moms has meant so much to me. Being with them every week has been so encouraging… it’s been so much more than a playgroup.

Love you,

The Mamas:


The kiddos (minus 8 who are in school and you, Hayden):


Hayden, you aren’t pictured here because you weren’t in the mood for me to be The Mamarazzi!
