6 Ways to Make Mom Friends (and One Terrible One)
Making friends was never easy as a kid. It doesn't get any easier as an adult. We recently moved to a new place where we don't know anyone, and so the process of finding a social circle had to start all over. Add kids to the mix and suddenly you're responsible for helping them make new friends too. It's daunting. Here are a few things we try to make it happen.
1. Baking cookies for neighbors
That didn't go so well. I think I left a tin in front of a door my neighbor never uses and I think it's been sitting there since December. Oh well. I tried. Your neighbors probably use their front door.
2. Inviting yourself places
That sounds terrible, but I've done it a few times and it went well. I've been invited back. It's kinda stalker-ish but sometimes you have to just ask.
