Now that Kenz is almost 15 months old I can say that I really enjoy getting out of the house now and hanging out with other moms and kids.. It’s now more for my sanity.. And of course because I want K to have lotsa friends and have all the social interaction. This was not the case though until she was about 10months or so..
I don’t know what it was.. I really don’t think I was suffering from some minor Post Partum depression.. but…I just really didn’t want to get out and mingle with anyone really, besides family.. I know it kinda sounds like it right? I just kinda wanted to figure this whole Baby thing out or being a mom thing out in my space where I was comfortable. We definitely got out of the house.. a lot.. like everyday we still went somewhere…shopping or on walks to my parent’s house..
Once I got more comfortable with her and our schedules (or really lack there of).. It became something fun to do.
Being invited to playdates before was intimidating.. I felt like she was still too young to play with other kids and I wasn’t going to have much in common with the other moms.. Sure they coulda gave me all their advice which would have been awesome but it was still scary to me.
Now funny thing.. I’m one of the admin for a Mom Group haha.. Yep I’m that mom. The fun Event Planner!
Pumpkin patch, bounce house par ks, Mom’s Night Out.. Sign me up! I’m all for em now and am making great friends!
Have any other mama’s gone through this? I’m sure I’m not the only one.. I loved becoming a mom and it definitely didn’t feel too crazy but I can admit it just didn’t come natural I think. Now.. after 15 mos, still learning but I got this in the bag.. C’mon #2!
