See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
As all of us young moms know VERY well, after we have our babies, our relationships change, our priorities change. And our "friends" slowly dwindle away...
well, honestly.. after ive had my daughter, and looking back, I don't miss those friends AS much.. because Ive changed... I have different priorites, different views on things. And different things to do that I consider "fun"
I just wish I had more "mom" friends to hangout with that are my age, the only ones around here are girls I used to go to school with, and if we didn't have children we probably would never even speak to eachother because we are so different. I want a mom friend that likes the same things I do. I was considered "quiet" nerdy, I liked to read, got good grades, I watched anime, went to "nerd conventions" cosplayed. I don't know many moms that like that kind of stuff..
I feel so lonely all the time, and SO doesn't really help. His friends stuck around for him, mine didn't. I need mom friends that I can go shopping with the LO's with. Have coffee with during the week. Someone that I can vent too, trust, and just help me feel less alone. *sigh* I love my DD very much.. she is the light of my life. But lets face it, an 8 month old doesn't carry much conversation. I need some adult communitcation once in a while, ya know?
