I’m not totally comfortable socializing with other moms yet and it’s mostly because of all these unspoken rules and all this judgement. I feel like I’m the new kid in school and I’m trying to find a spot to sit in the lunchroom for the first time. It’s very intimidating to me but I’m pushing myself to get out more with her because she loves to be outdoors playing and socializing. I guess I’m one of those helicopter moms but more because my child is so active and wants to climb everything but she’s not quite big enough to do it all herself yet. So I totally understand not loving every moment of this. I also sometimes wish moms could be less judgy and know we’re all in this together ( and some of us are new at this and don’t share their confidence!) So the next time you see that mom who’s right on top of her kid the whole time, maybe take into account that she’s a little new at this and perhaps a little intimidated as well. just another side of the coin I guess. I learn more and more each day!

However, my 5 year old is not shy and will ask and talk to anyone. So he will ask other parents to push him and it’s funny that almost all of them oblige. Many of them for 20 or so minutes! Some days it bothers me to think about what they are probably thinking of me. But I believe in purposefully ignoring them at the park. I’m watching, I care but all of that is going on in the inside. They need to learn their independence and isn’t the playground one of those great opportunities

What a judgemental, mother****** you are. How dare you have the balls to make assumptions as to what anyone is doing on their phone.

I’ll bring coffee for everyone, gummy bears and goldfish for the kids and we can all sit and chat and ignore our kids whilst sanctimonious “abettermother” can watch all the kids for us.
