For many mothers, having often goes hand-in-hand with a feeling of isolation and a dwindling social life. Whatever you want to call them, having girlfriends that are also navigating the sometimes rocky waters of parenthood is key in keeping you sane and happy. So, with these benefits in mind and without ly stating the obvious: Your friends without kids are also incredibly important!
Start With Your Pre-Baby Friends: If you were close friends with someone before you both had children, congratulations! Lucky you.
Have them make a connection, you guys can set up a date to meet, and see if any sparks fly. By the same token, if you have a consistent playdate going on with one mother, invite additional mom friends from time to time to keep your social group growing.
Hit The Playground: If none of your girlfriends have had kids yet, finding someone you can discuss the hells of the CIO method or 4-year-old discipline techniques is going to be a little harder. For little ones not quite ready for the park, there are breastfeeding circles, music classes, and mommy-and-me groups where you can meet mothers in the same stage of babyville. Bringing extra toys is a nice way to engage with other kids and potentially their mothers.
Once the kids are entertained, ask your potential-friend if she lives in the neighborhood, how old her kid is, how her kid is sleeping, and other simple questions. Sometimes things fizzle there and you part ways. We all know how busy and unpredictable days with kids can be.
Start with a couple of friends and a Facebookthen let those friends invite a couple of friends, and so on. Let the be a place where folks can introduce themselves, freely ask kid- or career-related questions, as well as organize group events and one-on-one playdates. We recommend having your first big in-person meeting outdoors with your offspring.
Then follow that up with a cocktail night sans kids so you can actually talk and so that the age of your children becomes irrelevant. Have any other tips on making friends with fellow mothers?
