Facebook has allowed me to reconnect with many people from my past and to stay in touch friends I've made since becoming a mom. It's nice, but it's so easy to just read status updates and make comments instead of actually having a conversation with one of them. I miss having real conversations and need to put myself out there more and make a better effort getting together. I'm working on it.
Kids add another challenge to making friends. First, you have to find a mom who shares your interests and parenting philosophies, then you have to set up a playdate and finally you have to hope that the kids don't try to kill each other. Or that if they do, the other mama understands that two strong willed two year old boys are a dangerous combination and that trouble will ensue in spite of the best intentions. I know several great moms and hope that better weather and no longer having a newborn will allow me the ability to connect with them more.
I had a more eloquent post in my head, but my thoughts are a bit jumbled and this is how they came out. And the picture? My adorable Finn at six months. It's completely unrelated to anything, but I haven't posted a picture for a long time so I thought I'd include one of my favorites. I plan to take pictures of Oren soon in those same pajamas. I am certain he will be equally as adorable.
