We've moved 3 times in the last 2 yrs and about to move again in a couple months. I lost most of my friends when my son was born and this last move was from TX to FL so I have no friends anymore. I want to make new mom friends but it's hard when we keep moving.
Have been living in the PA burbs for 2 years, moved from another state and really miss my hometown and small town life. The township I live in has great schools for my kids and my spouse is only a few mins to his office, but this just doesn’t feel like home and we can’t really walk anywhere, its more like developments. I keep complaining that I want to move back, but the commute would be 70-90 ... More
Hi all! So I realize my daughter is only 15 months old and I have time to work on this but it’s been on my mind so here goes. How do parents of older children do it!?! I think about my years in junior high and high school and I don’t want that for my daughter. The angst of not being in the popular group. The angst of not being a perfect size 2. The crushing feeling of being turned down the ... More
I've always been someone with a plenty of friends & people to hang out with & as soon as I became pregnant all my friends disappeared. I always knew moms who talked about losing friends when they became a mom but I didn't realize I was gonna have to meet all new friends. & Meeting mommy friends is a lot harder than I thought. Did any other mommys struggle with making new m... More
I am the mother of a six and a half month old daughter. I just visited my home in Texas where my best friend told me that I am losing myself and that I am not just my daughters Mom. Also, that my only conversation topic is my child... I mean is that bad?!? I get what she is saying, but what is wrong with just being a Mom? I started working from home a month before giving birth, so I don’t inter... More
My 3 year old step-kid is getting to the point where “stranger danger” is VERY important. They’re very shy and refuse to play with other kids...just the parents or other random adults. They will strike up a conversation with any passing adult and even try to open the door when people come knocking. This is TERRIFYING for my spouse and I. How do you handle stranger danger with a kid that young ... More
My 2 year old has severe stranger anxiety. She cries until she throws up, screams and gets very upset even in familiar settings like our home, if strangers come by. She was doing great between 18-24 months of age, before that she had the regular stranger anxiety, but nowhere this intense. This has now been going on for two months. She is doing great in every other way. She is at home. I want t... More
Over the years I’ve lost contact with essentially all friends, as has my husband. I’d love to make some friends, but it’s really hard because it seems everyone already has a social circle. We have done a couple play dates but when I’ve suggested just the parents go to dinner they’re never available. Any tips on how to make friends as an adult? My husband doesn’t drink so bar scenes are out, and... More
So I’m a bit of an introvert. I don’t like talking to people lol. Besides my husband. I prefer to always be doing something or working than talking to friends/coworkers. Like I’ll never sit and get coffee with a friend. I’ll only do that if it’s a friend I rarely ever see. My best friend came over to my house on Saturday and I found it awkward. Normally we are in a group setting, outside of the... More
I’m not sure what to do, my son is almost three and I feel like I’ve done everything wrong. He’s barely talking, hardly wants anything to eat aside from grilled cheese and pizza, isn’t super social, doesn’t want to potty train. I feel like I’ve ruined him, I don’t know what to do and it breaks my heart.
