We both have baby boys who are three months apart so that has been a big connection too. I lent her grocery money, she payed it back. She needed cheap child care to go back to work and I needed extra money so I now watch her boys (and she hooked me up with another neighbor friend of hers and I watch her kids too).
She was going to buy me a used baby swing, but then someone gave her an extra, so she gave me one.
The other day I had warned her that my phone may get disconnected because dh was out of work. Today her husband came knocking on my door to give me one of their phones because he said they didn't need two. Luckily my phone hasn't been disconnected and I think I will be able to pay it before it does shut off. They are always looking out for me.
I don't really have a point to this post, just wanted to say that there are still good people out there that truly care because they want to, not because they have to.
I haven't had friends since getting married and having kids...not true friends.
