Smart Moms Find Time Together Valuable

In the beginning, the idea was simply to have dinner together. Carole Eagle and her three girlfriends had been students at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, where they’d all had part-time jobs as waitresses at a nearby tavern. When they got married, they attended one another’s weddings. And they all still lived in New Jersey. So it seemed like a happy idea to meet at a centrally located restaurant every couple of months and keep up with the changes in their increasingly busy lives.
