As I contemplate our move to North Carolina, I think about the friendships I’ve made here in Connecticut. My two closest friends here have developed over multiple visits with each other. As a new mother, these visits helped me feel like I wasn’t alone in my feelings of utter helplessness and being overwhelmed. These visits helped me learn how to feel more comfortable and confident in driving with my baby and getting out of the house. That it was okay to take a break and not feel the need to constantly flit around the house to clean and cook while my baby slept. We’ve shared our concerns ranging from feeding and sleeping, to keeping our marriages strong and maintaining our own sense of identity. Our visits started out tentative, perhaps introduced by getting together for coffee. Now we can dig deeper, comfortable in each other’s company, the accumulation of visits a solid foundation of our friendship.
