The struggle is real. Being a stay-at-home mom means hours upon hours of interaction with your children and very little adult interaction. As an adult I have struggled with making friends. I always feel awkward and don’t know where to go to make friends. That is why I rarely step outside of the box.
Since having my son I try to get us both out of the house, but there is only so much you can do with a little one that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I do splurge on one class for my son and that is music class because music is his world. For instance as I sit here writing he is playing his guitar while singing his little heart out! But that 30 minutes a week of music class doesn’t really help me make friends. I don’t have time to talk with the adults before or after class as everyone runs out the door. Of course the one time someone really talked with me it was just to be hit on. (I still can’t believe a married man would hit on me so blatantly while knowing that I am in a relationship as well.)
Being a Stay-at-Home Mom isn’t easy.
None the less the life of being a mom can be hard. I am envious of all of the moms out there that have friends and actually got out of the house on a regular basis. Adult interaction is needed, but sometimes few and far between. One day I will be one of those moms (at least I hope I am), but until then I have all of my lovely friends online. I have you!
Do you ever feel like you are that crazy person talking to yourself? That right there is how I feel most days, especially after those long 10 hour days alone with my toddler.
