I don’t make friends very easily. It’s a personality flaw that I’ve dealt with my entire life.
I’m shy and terrible at making conversation… until now.
I’m truly starting to believe that one of the reasons we put our kids in various activities is to, not only expose your child to different things, but to give parents a chance to meet other parents.
This must be a real thing, right?
I mean, ever since M started preschool and dance class, I’ve met a lot of other awesome people that I would have never met if she had not been in these activities.
I’m making friends.
I’m talking to people. I’m learning how to make and sustain a conversation.
Not only are these activities great for M’s social skills, they are helping my social skills out too!
Why wasn’t it this easy for me when I was school aged? Did it really take parenthood to open me up?
Better late than never!
