Major events

Being a busy mom balancing your work, home and children including homework, after school activities, friendships and meals (why do they need to eat so often?) means that life is full. Very full.
It's hard to be considerate of others, to remember to call friends in their birthdays or to commemorate important events in their lives. Friendships are not the same once you have kids. There is a lot less time to together. One friend may have kids, the other may be unmarried, one may be working full time, another may be a stay at home mom.
It can become difficult to relate, to keep track and to stay in touch.
Friends need to be there for each other anyway. Call when a major event occurs... good or bad. I really try to at least text to follow up after a big job change, a death in the family or a new baby. Acknowledgment and thoughtfulness around major events replace the day to day interactions I once had with my friends.
It's not personal, it's just practical. That's why it's so important to follow up with friends, celebrate big milestones and talk about the little things when you get the chance.
Sending good vibes to all my friends (and family) who may fall into this category.

  1. I have also attended these types of events at local event space Chicago. These are really great and fun events. If anyone wants to have good time with his loved ones then I highly suggest going to these events.
