You see, I've decided that I need more mommy friends. I have...two. Yup, I only have two mommy friends. I do appreciate them; but, it's hard to relate when their kids are 3 and 7 years older than mine.
So, I decided, in my quest for mommy friends, to find a local mommy and me type class. I was leaning towards a class where I could get some exercise and Squishy could tag along. Even a music class where I move her little legs and arms would be fine. Nope. I'm SOL until she's 9 months and we can join a mommy and me gymnastics class.
I'm also not the type of girl who'll just walk up to other moms in the store. I was never one to hit on guys so why would I suddenly decide to it with other moms.

Of course, I have supportive non-mom friends; but, it's hard for them to understand what it's like. I can't do all the things I did before I had a baby. I can't just go to the movies. I can't just take weekend trips. (I have to bring so much more stuff when we travel now). And, friends don't get that I don't want to just leave her with hubby. It's not that I don't trust him, more like I love her so much and don't want to be away from her. They don't get that love yet.
I'm thankful that a few of my friends are pregnant now and a few more are planning on trying next year; but in the meantime it's rough. I look forward to five to ten years from now when my friends all have kids and finally get it. I have another human being to look after now. It kind of changes things :)
