Boy does life change once you have children! I feel so blessed to have not struggled to have my children. Fortunately, my husband and I had our babies when we wanted to without difficulty. Unfortunately, our friends either have already had children and they are much older than our kids or they haven't had kids yet. I had hoped that once I had children, I would meet other moms with children around my kids ages and make new friends to go along with the ones I already had. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be as easy as I had hoped. I have met some wonderful women who I thought would be great to hang around with, but unfortunately, that does not seem to be the way it is working out. This is especially hard since i am now a SAHM. I had worked as a full time, professional social worker for 12 years. I was always around people, be it other staff, clients, or professional liaisons. Now I am at home with 3 kids, none who speak. I love being home with my kids, but I so miss having other adults around. Is that bad?
I had hoped that I would make some new friends and so would my kids and maybe it will happen someday. I need to look at myself and figure out if there is anything that I am doing that limits me from making new friends and see if there is anything that I can change.
