    In praise of “other mothers”

    Nj Mom

    After my husband finished graduate school, we moved over 1,000 miles away from family for his career. Shortly after moving, we learned we would be having our first child. Living so far away from my mom was very difficult, especially with a small child. I would have never survived that time without my NJ mom. I spent many a sleep deprived morning in her office eating chocolate and getting sage advice. Although I have moved back home, I am still very close to my NJ mom. I will be forever grateful for her making my time away from home so much easier! My daughter is now 9, and we have added a son to our family. They both see my NJ mom as a special member of our family.
