Whilst we’ve been in Newy we’ve managed 3 visits with my girlfriend of 16 years who has been eagerly awaiting Aidan’s arrival… and that very first snuggle. She has 3 beautiful/perfect kids of her own and I can say that because I’m their God-mum. Now that Aidan is in our lives the bond between our families feels even stronger.
Danielle and I have always felt like family to eachother even if some years we were more distant than close, but that’s what growing up is all about, living, changing and through it all we’ve still managed to keep close bonds. Watching her face as she held him reminded me of how I felt when I held hers… it was all very zen-like.
Thankfully both our husbands like eachother and get along great which is even better for us. We’re planning on spending New Years Eve together again this year and I’m really looking forward to it. Lots of nibbles, beer & champers all round… better stock up on expressed milk!
