Something New

Today, Charlie and I went to a play-group with some moms and babies from an "All About Moms" group for new moms that meets at the hospital where Charlie was born. There's a big group on Mondays and then every Wednesday some of them go to someone's house for a play-group. They just lay a big blanket on the floor and the babies are just rolling around and the mommies talk and eat lunch. It was fun and I met a bunch of other new stay at home moms who are looking for friends and a reason to get out of the house! While I do have some really great friends, most of them live far away and the close ones will be working or moving come August (boo!) so I figured I needed to find some other SAHM's with new babies.

While it was a good time today, I must say it was a little like the first day of school for me. And being an army kid that moved every 2-3 years, I have had LOTS of first days of school. You know, where you're trying to make friends and meet everyone you can, but also trying to feel around for who is going to be your BEST friend. You're trying to be fun and funny, nice, and outgoing, but not too talkative, or too outgoing. And you know its your big chance because you're going to be with these people for a couple of years, so now's your chance to make a good impression. And you hope it won't take too long to settle in and just... be... comfortable... and... be... yourself...

Hopefully it won't take too long.
