By all means, totally, definitely seek the support of others. My mama friends and I were talking tonight about becoming a mama. We briefly touched on the opportunities that motherhood affords you and doors that it closes. Becoming a mother has isolated me from some friends, but it has also opened me up to this private female world of friendships that I never would have had time for before. Being a mother helped me realize how much we really all have in common. What a great secret to share, and how lucky I am to share it.
