See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
During my brief stint in therapy (I quit because I don't have enough time), my therapist suggested I get out and make friends. It's been a month in the making, but I'm going to have my first blind date w/ other autism moms tomorrow night. I joined a facebook group for moms in my area and a subgroup for developmental disorders, and I posted an invite for people to join me at Pump It Up tomorrow evening for Sensory Night. It's for autism families only. So Aly gets to have fun jumping and I get to meet Moms like you lovely ladies.
One of the girls going is actually the mom of a kid who was in group therapy with Aly through EI -- so Aly already knows one kid -- but only my mom knows the mom since she was the one to take Aly to group.
I'm so exctied but also nervous. I hope I can make at least one new friend!
OMG, my back is KILLING me! Aly wanted me to do absolutely everything with her, and let's just say I'm not a kid anymore! I need to see a chiropractor stat! Plus, I'm totally bummed, the one woman I wanted to get to know better did show up, but her son has recently started having major issues with noise, so the sound of machines running giant blow-up equipment scared him. He wouldn't take his hands off his ears, and once she took him out to calm down, he wouldn't come back in. Will have to find something low-key to do with her another time. He is the boy who was in group therapy with Aly and my mom knows the woman from going to all the sessions with Aly. She's the closest to my age of those who showed up and seems really nice. Drat on loud equipment! Oh well, Aly had fun.
