I find it so hard to make friends as a stay at home mom. I lost most of mine after i had a baby and i dont start school until January. which im stressing about, starting to think since hes 1 and im not seeing family much anymore its time to start finding people who want play dates but i font want to sound awkward... or be that random person who doesnt have friends and just kind of includes themselves.. so how do other moms make friends that have children. especially if crowds they used to hang with dont have babies

Hi Samantha~
Well, I completely understand what you're saying. It's not easy taking that first step to meet new people and connect with other moms. Especially if you tend to be a little shy (like I can be). But sometimes a good option is to find a local mommy group. For instance, maybe try MOPS (https://www.mops.org/)? They're all around the country and you'd definitely be able to find some other stay-at-home moms. Or another idea might be to check with something like the YMCA or a local church to see if they host any groups of this nature. But it might take a little of the stress off of your shoulders as far as figuring out where to make/meet friends. Hope this helps!
