I’ve been at this SAHM thing for four months now, and not one permanent new friend for me or for August. I totally suck at this meeting Moms thing. But I can’t take all the credit. I’ve read multiple Mom blogs that state the same thing “It’s hard to make Mom friends”. In fact, I find it so difficult that I might consider journaling my exploration of finding a Mom friend. If it weren’t so boring, I would have already written more about it. But you can only say “Nope. Still haven’t found one” so many times.
Our gymnastics class has been great, but unsuccessful in terms of making a friend. The problem is that we’re concentrating too much on the gymnastics and we don’t have time to mingle really. Lately, I’ve been looking into the Observation Classes at the local Waldorf school, but those are all filled up until March. Gymboree is just way to far away from where we live, and when you don’t have a car, and you have to make it back in time for naps – distance matters. We go to story time once a week, but we haven’t made any friends there either. That leaves me with what for us to do over the next several months? Well, I think we’re going to sign up for a Yoga class. I think August will like it. After all he already thinks he knows three moves: cat’s pose, child’s pose, and cow pose. Whether these are real poses or not, August thinks they are, so I of course don’t spoil his fun. Who knows, maybe cow is a pose?
That’s our next adventure, then, Yoga. Not sure we’ll make any friends there either, but at least we’ll be trying.
