Tomorrow night, Walter will be driving me to Kansas City, and Friday morning, I will be boarding a train with my good friend Bobbi, for a seven hour ride to Chicago. By the end of the day Friday, I will be hanging out with twelve of my closest friends. The kicker is that I have never met most of these women.
It all started six years ago, when I was pregnant with Max and reading everything I could find. I ended up on BabyCenter.com, which automatically puts you into a "club" based on your due date, in this case December 2008.

These women have been an incredible support to me as I learned how to be a mom. I don't know what I would do without them.
In the beginning, we always joked about a five year reunion, and now it's here, and it's happening, and it's so surreal. I'm literally giddy and nervous, but I am so thrilled that my family has allowed me this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
It's always a little strange trying to describe our relationship, since we haven't really met, but I just call them my "mom board" and most of the people in my life know about them. I can't wait!!
