I Did It..

I actually did it.. I went along to a playgroup and with two children.. Two whole children! And we all survived.

I’ve never been the most confident of people and after Little was born I suffered with a bit of depression & anxiety so never really went to any groups. This time around I’m feeling a lot better so started looking into groups in our village.

Living in a village can go either way. Some people are so friendly and speak to you in the streets but sometimes the groups can be very clicky where they’ve already made friendships!

But today I did it.. I bit the bullet and went along to a group and it was just so lovely! The leader was very friendly and introduced us to a few other Mums. Little was in her element because they had her two favourite things.. Dolls and crafts! Baby had some time floor time too and then spent rest of the time asleep on me. And I got to speak to other Mums from the village about our children and pre-schools!


So yeah.. I did it! And I’m so glad I did.

James always says to me.. “Never have the conversation in your head!” And for once I agree.

    Well done! Having a baby (even a second) is like being born all over again, and even the simplest things become complicated. So you can congratulate yourself even for having a shower! Visiting from #PoCoLo

    Well done, it can be so daunting walking into those sorts of groups. Sadly the ones I tried when my eldest was small were the ones where no one spoke to me and just spoke to their own friends… I didn’t bother going more than once. So glad your experience was different 🙂

    Well done you! I took my first every week from 6 months because I knew someone else who was going so didn’t feel so worried. With my second I didn’t know anyone and I’m ashamed to say it took me till she was almost two to start taking her. The clicky side of things is hard but they’re actually all really nice and my daughter absolutely loves going so really wish I’d gone earlier.

    Well done great you met some nice Mums too. Moving to a village not that long ago I know exactly what you mean. It can be even harder to make friends.

    I know how scared I was about taking a 16 month old and a baby and I didn’t have anxiety or depression so I can only imagine how apprehensive you were! Well done 🙂 it really is the little things that make motherhood great! #picknmix

      It’s nice to get out the house and occupy the toddler. Not sure how it will work when Baby is on the move xx
