I don’t know too many people who go to bed at 10 pm. I know one parent couple, but unfortunately they live a half an hour away, which is like another planet right now.
Following an advise of my doula, I joined a new mothers support group. So now I can talk about my baby as much as my heart desires as long as I don’t boast too much.
I’m keeping my eyes open for other young mothers in the neighborhood, and there are some. Unfortunately, I have standards. For instance, last week I went out for a cup of coffee with a friend of mine. He actually gets out of his way to visit me once a week. I suspect his mother suggested he would do something like that.
So we were sitting in a coffee shop. Two other mothers were a table over to the right. One of them had a six-year-old, another – a baby.
“How old is you baby,” – I decided to strike a conversation.
“Nine month,” — She said. She was happy to know that mine is nearly the same age. But then she added: “I’m learning so much from her.”
That was unfortunate because I’m making a list of things I want mine to unlearn.
