Sadly, it seems like this kind of support can be hard to find and mommy meet up groups can be catty, judge mental and even charge you to join them at the park. Who has time while raising children to be mean to other moms? Andrea wrote about this on her blog too, The Mommy's Who Suck at Meeting Other Moms Club .
It makes no sense, such a waste of energy. I appreciate the moms who walk up to us and ask about Claire and now because of them I do the same, I always chat up any parents on the playground and I wish we had more time off work to go to the park and actually start making some friends for Claire but for right now she loves the baby friends that she has.
I was thinking about starting my own "mommy group" but I realize that might be a lot to take on so instead I have decided to try and get a play date going every week (if possible, there's no reason to feel mommy guilt over anything new) looking forward to our next one at the aquarium to watch the penguins walk! Even without Claire I'd be really into that.
Reach out to me if you and your babe wanna picnic or something soon and I hope you have a lovely weekend
