I’ve had three days off, and despite enjoying being with my baby immensely, I’ve been feeling kind of isolated in mommy-world. I tried to find a mommy meet-up in my nearest city… there are none. Seriously, none. There are some in the city where I work, but that is an hour drive each way. I contacted the ladies who are local SMC-ers, but all of them live at least an hour or more away. I literally went to a popular park with the baby and sat on a bench with her, just to be around other moms and babies. They were all either in groups already, or had much older kids playing on the playground equipment, but still.
I am constantly harassing my sister and other close friends, or other family members with babies, to try to plan meet-ups, even though it means several hours in a car for Jo Jo and I. No one else ever initiates these things with us, so am I just extra needy? Or is everyone else I know (mom or otherwise) just all set in the social department?
