I have a coworker who I like a lot. We spent quite a lot of time together in the last two years, working on some projects. She lives in another town, so I never met her outside work.

Some days ago I had a meeting in her town, so she invited me to meet her family.   Since we were early, I went with her to a kindergarten to pick up the kids. I was in the kindergarten for the first time in my life. It felt awkward. I did not feel comfortable (I felt like I did not belong there, which is of course true), so I went outside to wait.

But meeting coworkers girls (aged 3 and 5) was lovely. They were so proud that mummy's friend came with their mummy to the kindergarten. The little one even yelled to her little friends: "Come on all and see who is here to pick me up!!!". It was a lovely moment.

I spent then  afternoon at their house and it was really nice.

I felt good afterwards. Because even a year or two ago.... I would felt devasted not having children and ALL the others have them. Of course even then I realiazed that not all have children, it just felt that way.
