While I am fortunate to have neighbor lady friends, I have been searching for companionship in other young moms. I put together a playdate of a few moms that I know from my college days. We were able to chat as our little ones crawled and played.
More often than not, we learn something from fellow moms – a good brand of diaper rash cream, tips about nighttime sleeping, how to bring up a subject to our husbands. We feel encouraged, heard and understood by other moms. Women need other women. Moms need other moms. I think I’ll schedule the next playdate.
