Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Mom of 4..no "Real" friends.

Hi, so lately I feel like everyone has a group of friends they can confide in or just hang out with except me. I get on facebook and see pics of friends hanging out or joking back and forth about this or that. I moved here a few years ago because my husband is from here and has a good job. When we got married he had 2 boys, which he has full custody of. So I became a mom right away. The first year was like playing house and it never really bothered me that I didnt have any good friends or family around. But since then we have added a little girl, who is now 3 and also have one one the way. Lately, I feel like such a loser because my husband always has friends coming over or hes going over there and all I do is just chill at the house. It gets very lonely. I have tried to be friends with some of my husbands friends but they all have their established friends and I dont want to be what I call a "charity friend." I know Im not the only one who feels like this, I guess it just goes with being a a stay at home mom. I also do go to church but everyone is a lot older or a lot younger than me and its hard for me to find a babysitter for my kids. I guess Im just looking for people who are or have been in the same boat. I want to be able to enjoy my kids and the blessing i have, because my kids wont be little forever.

Thanks,

no friends

I know sitting in the house with just the kids can get pretty lonely. Does your husband take you out at all?

Volunteer at your kids school or join and be active in the PTO. You'll definitely meet and interact with people that way.

I no exactly how you feel.I am also the mother of 4 .And when I do find the time to hang with friends I realize I have none.The few I do have are from my childhood and we no longer have anything in common.I think many moms struggle with this.If you find a solution let me know.lol.

My husband and I visit together, not separately - we are one unit. I know that's a bit unorthodox, but it's common where he's from. At any rate, I don't feel a lack of friends because I'm busy, my life revolves around my work and family, and my husband doesn't leave me sitting at home alone while he hangs out with friends.
