One of the moms I talk to online is fromÂ Canada. I met her in an online forum for expecting mothers. Â She was my belly buddy. Â We were both expecting our girls to be born on the same day. Anyway, we were talking about some of the differences between the United States and Canada. Â We could have gone on and on about a million things, especially health care.Â I had to pay a ton of money when I had Lady Bug. Â She didn’t have any out of pocket fees. Â I can’t even begin to fathom what I couldÂ haveÂ done with the thousands I could have saved if we lived there.
My belly buddy offered to let Lady Bug and I come visit her during the holiday season. Â I think it would be really great to get out of the city and visit her. Â The girls could play together and have a ton of fun. After all they are only three days apart. Â We’ve known each other since we were pregnant but have never met. Â Some of the other mommies in our group of friends have had meet up, but none of them have lived this far apart.
I’m excited to visit her and see what it’s like up there. Â I better get moving on passports for Lady Bug and I. Â I hope we can get them in time, otherwise we’ll have to wait till next year. Â Maybe we can visit in the spring if it takes six months like I’ve heard it does.
