That mom, standing alone on the playground while everyone else is talking in groups? That’s me.
It's time to go dancing with our girlfriends again! We’ll be home by 10:30, right? RIGHT???
I finally know how to cut through the bullsh*t. Life is too short to hang out with anyone but my people.
Now that I'm somebody's mom, it's more important than ever to dig deep and find the confidence to make new friends.
#1. Your kids don’t have to be friends—they just have to be kind to each other.
#1. Be supportive of one another.
For starters, they "get it" in a way that my non-mom friends don't.
My ex-husband and I use these strategies to stay on great terms -- and be there for our kids.
My attempts at friendship might have failed me so far in this new town, but I won't give up.
The gun is locked up, but I still worry that one of our small children might find it and get hurt.
Number 3 is the worst -- but there's just no way around it in this situation.
All of these things make me crazy, but #4 is the absolute worst.
It sucks to judge and be judged by other parents, but we all do it. I just never thought I’d have to do it with my best friend.
I really feel like I'm mothering my own mom when it comes to daily life and family relationships.
