Being the mother of a 3 month old baby boy and turning 21 in July ive come to realize how my life has changed. In the last couple weeks ive come to see just how many friends ive got. And that is not many. Im not upset or anything im just a little bummed that ive really got noone to hangout with. I would love to get to know more mothers with children around my sons age. But it just seems everyone i do know with kids is so distant because there so wrapped up in their own kids! I dont much blame them. My little one keeps me on my toes. But really who is anyone if they cannot come for a visit once a blue moon.



Realizing that all these people i once called friends have been lost in the dark is hard. Does anyone have any ideas as twords what i should do..where i can meet some new moms like myself.

No i dont go to church. My little man is only 3 months old im kind of worried to take him to little field trips like that because its hard to feed when he screams and say im in a fire house. Im not sure if theres much i can do right now except to find a group with kids of my sons age. How old is yours?

I dont know how to explain it to people without kids. People kind of look at me funny when i say im lonely for friends with kids....Its all about understand what were going through and apperantly few too many people understand the realizations of having kids. Im not super lonely. I do have a man to talk with but I do not really have anyfriends that live in calgary with kids. I guess im looking to fill that void of friendship and understanding. What to do what to do i think most of the time.... I never knew about this circle of moms until today.

Ohh man I am having exact same issue, I mean I never had that many friends that I hung out with anyway but I definitely dont know that many women my age who have kids!! I definitely need to hang out with people who understand what I'm going through, and you can only really understand that if you have a child of your own!!

I live in calgary alberta. I know what you mean....Im only 20 years old and realisticaly you'd think id have oodles of friends. Thats not the case at all. When i got pregnant it sure was unexpected but i never realized id lose so many friends. It seemed like i was lost in the winds of life. Me and my fiance have a couple of friends. One couple that has a baby girl born 5 days before mine. Suprisingly we never see them either. I would love to find a mommy and me group but i have no idea where to look...and im kind of shy.

I hope life picks up for the both of us!. Where do you live. My name is Nicole as well!

I have the same problem! At first it was hard being the only one who didn't have kids, but now that I do, it's hard to find other people to hang out with. I have a 6 month old little boy. Where do you live? I've tried finding mommy and me groups but they're too far to go with the little one.
