other moms

the funny thing about having a baby is suddenly having to make small talk with other moms/grandparents everywhere you go. you have to tell them how old your baby is, his name, and what his latest achievements are. i'm pretty okay with this though i try not to initiate these conversations.

but the other day, i stopped by the park on the way home so ben could have a swing. there was another baby and mom at the swings when i got there and only 2 swings. one can't swing her child next to another mom swinging her child without being friendly. i initiated conversation. but this mom was great. we chatted for about 20 minutes (because ben seems to be able to swing forever) and i wanted to ask for her number or at least for another date...you'll be happy to know i resisted. at the end of the convo, i introduced myself (because at that point, we'd only just introduced our babies...weird, i know) and she introduced herself and we left it at, "maybe we'll see you around." i guess i'll keep chatting with moms because you never know when you're going to meet a cool one. :)

Well, this is a fun story. Keep chatting up the other moms...then ask them if they want to host a tupperware party!
