I am such a wuss lol...
I really want to find a mothers group but I am too scared to go and meet complete strangers...
Surely I am not the only one (hopefully lol) to feel like this??? What made you just get out and do it????? I know I should because it will do me a world of good to meet some new people with kiddies but ARGH...
My daughter went to her first play group 3 weeks ago, and she is almost 18mths old, so you are definitely the only one! I am new to Tassie, and have no friends here (1 if you include someone i went to church with a few times 10 years ago), so it is really hard for me to get out and intergrate.
I am a single mum too, so I don't have anyone but myself, apart from my mum who might come over once a week (that is usually to help me get things done that i couldnt, having no car). It's a hard situation, but i MADE myself go to play group, but havent been back since because 2 days later my daughter had a cold, then it has rained ever since (no car, i walk everywhere!).
What made me do it was the fact that my daughter had only ever played with her cousin (who is 5.5yrs older, but autistic,so a little younger than her years), and I noticed that my girl loved watching little kids when we were out and about, so I had to do it for her, she needs to be around other kids smile
She really loved it, and I have to get there next playgroup!
Also, it helps to get you, the mother, out of the house and around other mums as well! But as a single mother, I think I am the only one at playgroup, and that makes it a little harder for me, as all the other mums are married or have partners, so i dont have as much in common with them as the other married or partnered mums do! Oh well, at least it is someone to talk to!!
I hope you do get out there, it will keep you from going insane as well!
