A trip to McDonald's

I went to McDonald's today for the first time in like, 5 or 6 years.  I was meeting up with a friend who has one almost 4 year old daughter and 2 foster kids (2 year old girl & 3 month old boy).  We had been meaning to do a coffee date in such a looong time, but she was never able to get a sitter and felt like she was over-using her mother to watch the kids.  As a result, my friend (L) finally suggested doing a coffee date at McDonalds so the 2 girls could play on the playground while we chatted over coffee with the baby.

It ended up being a great visit.  I got to catch up with L and give the baby a bottle as well.  She's currently 4 weeks pregnant, and we talked of babies and the difficulties of sub-fertility (L has had 10 miscarriages in the last 2 1/2 years.  She's my IRL sub-fertility friend.  Prayer Buddy--if you could pray for her instead of my intention, that would be greatly appreciated!).

At one point I left to use the restroom, and on my way there I passed by a mother and her 3 year old daughter.  The daughter pointed me out to her mother as I passed by and said, "Is she a mommy too?"  To which the mother replied, "I'm sure she's a mommy to somebody."

And I am :)  That somebody just happens to be in my womb...
