try finding a mom and tots group or check your library they usually have a free storey hour and craft time where you can meet other moms. Good luck:)

Where do you live in IN? I live in Elkhart. I'm 30 and have 3 kids, boys ages 7, 4, and 3 mo. I also do not have friends here b/c this is not where I'm from and have only lived here a year now. I am also a stay at home Mom.

I joined MOPS (mothers of preschoolers). They have a website check it out and hopefully there is a group where you are. Libraries sometimes have story times for kids and you can meet other moms that way too. Those moms can tell you about any other groups that are around.

I was the same way I had three I would take the kds to the park every day weather permitting. Or just walk around the neighborhood to get a feel. You eventually meet other mothers. Also if your children go to a day care, and also step out on faith and attend a church that is a great way to meet people. I don't live near the members hat I met but I have phone numbers when I want to talk I just call.

Groups are defintely a great idea. Also, try to get out. Being in the house all day can make you depressed and feel sad. Take the kids to a fun park and try to find moms to talk to. We have a quiet park nearby and I always meet new moms there. Good luck!

Join a mother group or playgroup! If there is not one in that area you could start your own.
