My Open Apology To All of My Friends Who Had Kids Before Me

To all of my friends who became mothers before me - I'm so sorry. 
I could've been more available.
I could've offered to take your kid(s) for a few hours to give you a break.
I could've came around more.
I could've invited you out more. 
I shouldn't have assumed that you had it all together.
I should've checked on you more. 
I could've been a better friend. I should've been a better friend. 
Now that I'm a mom, I see where I failed as a friend.
I would not be able to handle motherhood without my support system.
I know how blessed I am - but I also know that many of you do not have that support.
I really didn't understand the rollercoaster that is motherhood until I became a mother myself. Some things you can't really understand until you experience it.
Looking back I should've been that support for you. I had more than enough free time. I really have no excuse for not being there like I should've been. 
I will make more of an effort be that friend you need. I won't assume you're alright or got it all together. Us mamas gotta stick together & I vow to do better. 
Love y'all,
