So Audrey is all of 9 months old but already people are asking about her birthday. What are you going to do? Where are you going to have her party?
I am unsure of how to handle this. She is going to be a year old. She doesn't really have friends so who do you invite? This lack of friends is beginning to be a problem for Audrey. She wants to interact with other kids. She wants to do this during mass, not exactly the best time. I took her to my aunt's house so she could play with my cousin's son. He was willing to play but he is about 5 months old and got tired of waiting for Audrey to get going. But at least she met someone new.
I want her to have friends. I don't want to hold her back from becoming the social butterfly she seems to want to be but how do I get her new friends when I don't have any here? Either I'm finding moms who stay at home and therefore have daytime playdates or it's women with no children. I really am at a loss. I know part of the reason I'm holding back on making/finding local friends is that I have one foot out of the door. The plan is to move to Austin in a couple of years so that Ray can work on his PhD. Once I decided to stop planning for the future I know I'll find people but I just don't want to. The last time I finally let my guard down and starting looking for friends, I found group of incredible woman (the Triad Tot Totters). They were wonderful and I could relate to them and we could hang but then as soon as I found them we moved to Texas. So I"m a little gunshy. I want friends, I hate being by myself all day but I'm making friends just to leave them. What is the best thing for Audrey? I know the answer is to get off my ass and find some friends so I guess that is my next task. Anyone in the deep East Texas area want to hang?
