Over 40 mama — Adventures in poop, patience, and first-time parenthood

Okay, I admit it.  I am completely blown away by Facebook.

Not the stupid pokes, or super pokes, or tests or quizzes or “gifts” or any of that crap.  But the genuine connections you can make with people who – in a pre-Facebook universe – would have fallen off of your map.  I have made some incredible reconnections with folks who I’ve not spoken to in 20 years – let alone shared daily updates about dentist visits, or favorite wines.  I know about their kids, their work trials, and their caffeine addictions.

It is particularly satisfying to reconnect with someone you WEREN’T close with back in the day, and to overcome whatever mishigaas kept you from getting to know them better then.

So, yeah.  I’m hooked.
