Since you all don't know me that well you won't totally understand how big this is (if it happens).
I joined a group of moms in my area on Facebook and they set up to meet today at the mall. Well, at first I wasn't going to go. I have pretty awful anxiety (causes me to be physically ill) and I also have emetophobia (fear of vomitting) so going to a public place with a bunch of women and children is so not my idea of a good time.
Yesterday I decided to go. My 4 year old doesn't seem to want to go. I think it's partially because he'll have to, gasp, stop playing with his tablet long enough to be social. But my youngest does want to go. I showed him pictures of the play area where we will be and he's totally excited. So I decided that I would just go. It would be good to socialize. I'm worried some kid will vomit on my kid or my kid will pick up norovirus off the play area somehow. I can't deal with that. Last time one of my kids threw up I had an panic attack and was pulling out my hair. Yeah, it's that bad. :-( I'm such a mess.
But I was ready, I was excited... but then this morning I read on someone's facebook status that their child had thrown up in the middle of the night. No, it's not a kid that was going to be at the playdate but that just reminded it that these virus' are still out there. UGH!
So, I might go... but I might not. I need to meet other moms and let my children be social. But I'm totally freaked. Ugh!
I'm not totally sure of the point of this post other than to ramble early in the morning...
