This morning we took ourselves off to Mothers Group. I was running a bit late but never to late for a quick happy snap. We opted for a cheesy first day of school type photo, standing on the street with oversized
school nappy bag in tow.
When we arrived I was a little bit overwhelmed at the amount of people in the group... 25.
25 mums, 25 babies, 23 prams (two of us had slings) and as PB very eagerly pointed out – 50 boobs. (Um, thanks PB). Apparently there has been a huge baby boom in our area. What else was there to do last winter?
And you know what? It was ok. It wasn't amazing but I'll go again. The mums were friendly, and although I didn't really hit it off with anyone straight away I didn't expect to on the first day. And as Kristi pointed out, I can learn more from people that aren't like me than I can from people that are. Perhaps that's true. But they're mums. And I'm a mum. We all have that in common...
It's a good starting point.
