I've finally start making friends that share similar values.
It's so... Validating in terms of the way I parent my children.
People that want to create themselves what their baby wears. People that makes food from scratch, or encourage a local enterprise that does food from scratch. People that joyfully learn me how to knit.
People that have their child's best interest in mind, constantly reading on the subject, with a strong will to do the best job they possibly can at being a mom.
A 60"next to a 54" mattress right on the floor? Normal.
Toddler joining family bed at night? Normal.
Just the concept of a family bed? Normal.
Oh, and how I enjoy this new normal!
My heart pinch as I see my friend's 2 year old asking for mama milk, when Mariann stopped wanting it at 10 month old. I tell to myself.. If only I had some support.... Things would have been different! But now I'm glad I can freely talk without being rejected for marginality. I found I have very strong opinion on hot topics, and find myself preferring to keep my mouth shut in regular mommy groups because it's not worth trying to be heard.
New friends are freedom, and I like it.
