We’ve been getting A LOT of park time in and I’m loving it! The only bummer about the weather here is that when it’s raining, it’s really hard to find indoor things for a toddler to do. I’m sure you’re thinking, “Waahh. Waahh!” Not complaining, AT ALL!
Digs has gotten pretty good at climbing the steps and LOVES the swing. We went from a one story house to a two-story condo with the main entrance on the second floor. So aside from the park, he’s mastering this newly learned skill and my calves are looking good! 👌🏼
We’ve tried a few churches (three, to be exact). It’s been hard since we haven’t liked any of them and I’m counting on finding a church so I can make some besties! A full month of talking to my husband like he’s a girl and knowing that he really doesn’t “get it” is getting old for me (and I’m sure for him). During our park time, I’m on the official ‘fellow-mommy-friend hunt’. There have been four women who I’ve get a good vibe from. They seem to have a good spirit. I start talking and EACH ONE OF THEM haven’t spoke a lick of English. I did run into a lady in the grocery store. She asked me where the bread is (in plain ol’ English). I immediately think, ‘Maybe WE could be friends!” She was an elderly lady, probably in her late 80’s. As I’m taking her to the bread aisle, I realize that even though I absolutely love older people, but with her (highly probable) doctor appointments and my child reverting back to two naps, this has a very low chance of working. I showed her the bread and continued my hunt.
I found a few mom’s groups through this app called MeetUp and we have our first playdate today! Here’s to hoping I can keep my shit together and not be an overwhelming-friend-needing-weirdo!
