"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." ~Elizabeth Stone
To be honest, I'm not sure anyone is really prepared for motherhood. Most women are shocked at how drastically their life changes after a new baby is placed in their arms. Even more surprising is how different you might feel...a different version of yourself- and all without a roadmap to follow. Women need to connect with other women during this time..especially those that have "been there, done that" or are willing to explore this journey with you. There is no need to fit into a certain category to join this Meetup. We are laid back, after all. It doesn't matter if you are breastfeeding or not, working or staying home, religious or not, have older children, younger children on both. In fact, you may not even be a mother...perhaps you are an Aunt or Grandmother. You don't need to commit to this group, pay a membership fee or agree to host parties. Motherhood, new motherhood in particular, is overwhelming as it is. Just come as you are. Come joyous. Come nervous. Come with your hair not brushed. Come with an open heart, but most importantly...Come.
Come if your baby is 6 months, or 6 years. We can all learn from eachother.
This group is perfect for women looking for a supportive and uplifting environment. Women who want to try new things, share their own interests and passions, and build new friendships, while often having children in tow.
Let's have some fun- bowling, potlucks, trips to various museum, cheap eats, easy hikes, discussing books, brunch, coffee/tea, and any idea you might have!
Please feel free to post your own meetups or activities in this group. Ladies with littles need to unite! One mom is too busy to carry the group on her own. :) You can add a meetup under the "Come and Join Us..." title by clicking "+ Suggest a New Meetup."
