This isn't one of those posts where I give you tips on making friends, because I'm not really qualified to do that. I'm not always that great at meeting new people-- it's a little hit or miss for me. I've also never been the kind of gal who wanted to be in a "mom group". I have friends with kids and all that, but mom groups have always scared me. Except, now I kinda have one and I'm singing a different tune.
I think the trick for me was finding a group of gals who I really like... who also happen to have kids. That's the thing I think I was missing for a long time-- you don't HAVE to bond with someone just because they have a kid, too. I actually would sorta run from that-- it's a lot of pressure. Now I look forward to our weekly (or bi-weekly, whatever we have time for) play dates and all the happy chaos that comes with it. (We missed you, Janae!)
