I received some very happy news from an old friend a few days ago. She wrote to say she was pregnant! I was so happy for her. I've known her since childhood, her older sister and I were inseparable in school and it's kinda strange to think that she's now old enough to be a mother... which means I'm getting old too!
Every time a girlfriend tells me they're expecting or a guy friend tells me his wife is, I get all giddy with joy for them. Maybe it's because their news brings back memories of my rather happy and fuss-free pregnancy and I get all fuzzy and warm inside again. Maybe it's because we've had so much joy with our little boy and I wish the same for my friends who have yet to experience parenthood.
Congrats to A and J - looking forward to saying hello to the little bundle of joy when he arrives!
