This school year many new moms have joined my circle of friends. I have forged friendships due to children the same age, or children with similar interests. Also, some of these friendships have formed out of remarkably similar life experiences. Coincidence--I think not!
The one character flaw I have about meeting new people is I am slow to warm up. What I mean by slow to warm up is that it will take me some time before I will feel comfortable enough to invite you to my home.
I am not a natural born hostess. I feel too inadequate and self conscious. My mind always asks: What would we eat, what would we do, what would we talk about?
I'm going to try better to jump out of my shell of self-consciousness. Please do not take offense if I haven't invited you over for a playdate, yet. I'm working on it because we Moms need other Mom friends.
I am participating in NaBloPoMo which stands for “National Blog Posting Month” and is a blogging challenge created by the team at blogher.
