Many reasons why we need our mom friends-The Russell girls.

Hmmmm looking back to the days when we had no children, if you wanted you could take 2 hours to get ready while sipped your freshly brewed latte, you could sleep whenever you wanted and shower whenever you pleased. You could watch TV  shows with Characters that don’t have names like Toopy and Binoo or  Phineas & Ferb , and girls night outs happened a lot more frequently…..don’t get me wrong I love my children and wouldn’t trade them for the world…but things are different when you become a mom, your whole life changes including your friends.

Before you have kids, your friends were all about you; who you have things in common with; who you have fun with; who you want to hang out with for a good time.

Now…. kids enter your life and friendships have a whole new meaning, and purpose. You need friends, Mom friends… who understand exactly what you’re going through and won’t be annoyed when it takes four months to plan a night out together, those friends  understand that you cannot have a phone conversation without getting interrupted 16 times in 4 minutes. They don’t judge you when you show up at their house 30 min late with one kid attached to your leg with no socks on in the middle of winter and the other one with breakfast all over their face… cause it’s been “ONE of those days” .

So what!…. you wear your lulu’s every single day… so do all your other mom friends, putting Jeans on means we are really going all out! lol  You need moms who just plain get it, and make motherhood easier. Just when you used to think a true friend was someone who would hold your hair back while you puke after drinking too much…NO, NO, let me tell you, a true friend is someone who will clean your hair, clothes and floor up after your baby just projectile vomited all over you for the third time that day. All you mom’s out there know what Im talking about there is something very special about having best “mom” friends, it’s like an unspoken pledge between all mother’s to stick together and go through the hardest most rewarding time in our lives, as mother’s raising our children through the good days and the worst days.

so why am I blabbing about all this?? I’m suppose to be posting photographs right? Yeah I know I’m getting there. These photos are of four very special ladies in my life, I know you have seens them before, they are some of my favorite ones to photograph and you can see why that is. The woman who is responsible for these three precious girls is someone who I can definitely call one of my best “mom” friends and who I am forever grateful to have in my life and in my children’s life. Keep your eye out for some hilarious utube videos from us after all we both think we are pretty much the funniest people in both our families (I think we just think that, no one else really says that) so I know we are destined to rock some mommy  renditions of “fancy” and other songs on utube one of these days;) lol  Love you like a sister Trace:) xoxo
