Mom Dork



What is it about Mommy and Me type classes/gyms that just make me feel like a total mom dork? It seems like all the mommies joined some mommy club pre-birth and I just showed up late. On the days that I take Jake to some class or other, my husband always asks if any of the other mothers talked to me. Unfortunately, the answer is usually, "no" (although I DO try to strike up conversations!). And then, he laughs and says, "it's not you!". I'm beginning to wonder! Some moms just seem to hit the ground running, and I always assumed that with a baby would come new mommy friends. Let's just say, I'm still waiting.

Oh Heather! You're so funny. I know what you mean. It's never easy making new friends. Thank goodness for virtual friends.

I am mixed about the mommy and me classes. I have done a ton...Have one this AM! The bad ones are BAD!! Sometimes I think moms go crazy once theyre a mother..
Someone once gave me a piece of advice that I have to remind myself of..Your "mom friends" should be someone you would have chosen BEFORE you had kids...Isnt that true!?

I think it's hard too! I always wish I had more mom friends but frankly don't have time for the classes because I work full-time. The best place I have met moms is at our swim class - but it did take a while!

They don't know what they're missing out on - you seem so nice, I am sure you'd make a great friend. Have a terrific weekend.

I never seemed to make friends who had kids the same age as mine either. I just don't think I connected in the same way, because I wasn't a stay at home Mom. Maybe you just need to pick a new group.

We moved 14 years ago here and I have 3 children, some of the Mom's that I met were actually because our kids became friends. Next time watch Jake and see who he becomes friends with!
I for one love Mom's who are unique and that feel dorky~ Embrace that!
