I didn’t think at this point in my life, I would be struggling to find a place to fit in. But here I am.
Making mommy friends is hard.
When I had Avery is was so excited to make other mom friends.
I joined Facebook groups, newsletters, local toddler meet ups, the whole nine-yards people.
I thought I was just steps away from endless play dates and mommy talk.
Avery is two and it hasn’t happened. Not even close.
I’ve felt snubbed by other moms. I don’t feel like I fit in.
I’m not at the same point of my life as these other women.
I’m just turning 21, I’m still struggling through college, I’m not married, I’m not buying a home or spending weekends at home depot dreaming over home renovations.
I look at these moms and feel so behind. Because I’m comparing myself to other people who have two year olds just like me, but are at total different points of their lives.
But I am still a mom. I still deal with the same things other moms deal with, even if it’s in different ways. I may be younger and not on the same exact wave length as the other moms doesn’t make me any different as a mom.
I haven’t gave up though.
I want to connect with other moms for myself, and Avery..
So with that said.. want to come over for a play date?
