My Girls

trip3 Trip

Over a year ago I was in constant contact with a few of these amazing girls and then sometime at the beginning of the year through the amazing Casey Gerwer we all received an e-mail about a trip.  I remember receiving the e-mail and saying, oh, I want to go, but maybe Andrea should go with me, I won’t really know anyone.  After a month of constant e-mails getting to know each other I knew this was a trip I wasn’t going to miss.  Then as I packed and headed to Baton Rouge to meet up with Jac Tubre and head to the New Orleans airport I remember thinking, there is no way we will do this every year.  When I stepped into the condo that very same day I remember thinking, I can’t wait to start planning next years trip.  It sounds cheesy, I know, but these girls are my heart! Not a day goes by that we don’t e-mail, chat, text, talk, something! Our group has grown since this trip and includes so many other great Quad Moms as well! But I honestly don’t feel my day is complete without some form of communication with them! It’s the way they make me feel “normal”, the way they make me realize my days aren’t as bad as I think they are, the way they tell me the worst/best is yet to come, but most importantly it’s the amazing love we each have for each other! Every day someone praises you as a mom, as a friend or as a wife.  If you leave a conversation with these AMAZING women feeling anything less than beautiful and awesome, you weren’t paying close enough attention to what they have said.  Not sure why they have all been on my heart so heavy today, maybe because we’ve all had a HORRIFIC week, but I wanted each and every one of them to know how special they are to me and wanted you to know how special they are!!

You all are amazing! And it's true.. when I talk to Jenna I always feel awesome.. Of course, I always am in awe of her and you and all the quad moms. Just tonight I was sharing my evening, with Jenna about my 2 year old and 11 year old.. (it was one HUGE mess after another) But I always put it in perspective and think of Jenna.. (she was probably thinking..girl that's nothing.. you want to talk Messes???) !I have to say again... You are amazing.. You all are and what a blessing that you have each other..:)
