When your kids are infants and toddlers, your life is truly revolving around them! You love it but, it’s kind of a lonely place. If you are like me, you crave connection so you start joining Mom Groups, having playdates and going to Mommy and Me Classes.
I met so many wonderful women and made great connections but once my girls started school, the dynamic of my new friendships started to change as well. The kids were getting older, not connecting as I had hoped, going to different schools. Everything was changing and these new friendships were fading as well. As my girls were starting school, I was entering a new season of life.
Your children starting school can be an emotional time for everyone! It’s a great time and you know it’s going to be so much fun but there are a lot of unknowns and insecurities for everyone. Of course with the kids, you are getting all the emotions from happy, sad, shy, excited, terrified and it’s ever changing when they are young right, you never know what you’re going to get.
Now, look at the Moms. In a way, you are back to where you were when you first started Motherhood. You are looking to make new connections but this time since you have a little more confidence (you got this, you can do it again), it will happen much more naturally and definitely make sense. Although, you will definitely continue with some of your initial friendships, these women around you will be the new additions to your tribe.
Why am I so sure about this?
You are probably wondering why I say all of this and how I know and why does it make more sense? This is why.
