As we near the close of summer and all the kid activities that fill up this busy season, I am especially humbled by and grateful for my stay-at-home mom friends. A couple of years ago, I went back to work fulltime and the tables were turned. I was once the stay-at-home mom who picked up and dropped off my working mom friends’ children for activities during the day (at times, not cheerfully). Now, I am the working mom who relies on the generosity of the moms at home to do this for me.
Thanks to all the moms who have enthusiastically and willingly picked up my kids for VBS, camps, impromptu playdates, movies, ice cream runs and pool days. You’ve played a big part in helping make my kiddos summer feel more like “summer,” and continue to teach me that the blessings of having a mom tribe never changes whether I’m at home or at the office.
