We get it… You don’t have kids. Maybe you have a dog or a few cats, but you’re basically free and loving life! It’s no big deal to drop everything for a fun vacation or night out for drinks. You get to have date nights and romantic weekends away. So why don’t you ever call us? Just to check in?
Maybe I’m just speaking for myself, but I don’t want to talk about my kids when I talk to you. I do that all day, every day. Time with you is time for me too, as an individual. So why are you afraid to call me? Or even text me?
Maybe I’m not as fun anymore. I am tired all the time. I want to know how you are, but when I get a moment of peace, I’m probably going to take a nap. You are free. Busy, but free. Am I asking too much?
My kids are young and have only recently started daycare, so I don’t have “Mommy friends” yet. And I’m sure that will be nice too, but it’s you I miss. You remind me of me and you let me be myself, instead of just “Mommy”. We don’t even have to make the time to hang out – I just want to talk to you more.
Fuck it, I’m going to call you myself!
