The Boobs and the Babes

We are the stroller ladies, the mamma folk, the boobs and the babes...

This beautiful group of women are one of my newest tribes. Bringing our youngins together for a little group therapy, our Pterodactyls in training. Weekly we gather to see the progress of our efforts to raise confident, amazing children. Sipping coffee or tea we witness the first acts of socialization in our little ones journey's while learning through our failures and successes. We provide encouragement and support for each other as we create our own unique parenting style. A safe place where we can be ourselves and mothers at the same time.

I will look back one day and value this group of kindred spirits in ways more than I can understand now. For it truly does require "a village to raise a child" and I am so lucky to be of this village. So when you see us, our gang of femininty, smile for we are raising the future.


  1. aww, that's awesome! :)

  2. Carla, I have a group of women friends that I've been very close with for 23 years, and it all started as a parenting group when I had one baby and one "in the oven". We met once a week, and had dinner out (sans babies) once a month. We still share a long weekend away once a year, and now share stories of college, engagements, and grand babies! All of them are in Ohio, and I miss them terribly, but they're only an email away!
