Anna and I are enjoying some much-needed quiet time right now. It was a good morning, but she did get a bit overstimulated.
They say that it takes a village to raise a child. Even before I started trying to get pregnant with Sofia, I thought about my friends and determined that I have plenty of people who will support me as a single mother, especially in these early years. (It’s amazing how someone so small can require so much energy!) Today, Anna got to meet some of her, um, village people.
Not everyone was able to make it, of course, so there will be smaller gatherings to be had. But she’s met most of the family now. And most of the Granny Brigade. And a good number of theatre people. And I have a list of phone numbers of people who are willing to lend a hand.
It definitely feels good to have a physical reminder that I have a community beyond my immediate family. I know this. But it was nice to see everyone, too.
