But it was kind of my fault! I have wanted to get our more lately with Lynley and Corbin because they are just so clingy and really need other social interaction. So when I received an email invite to check out a local MOM group, I jumped on the opportunity. The group was meeting just a few minutes away in another neighborhood nearby, so I thought it was perfect. I was wrong!

The play group was at the pool, so that should’ve been my first clue it wasn’t going to go well. I can’t get in the pool with both babies by myself. They are a lot to handle on land taking off in different directions, but add water, and that would just be a disaster! Surely there would be other babies that couldn’t go in, I thought. Nope! Most of the children there were in the age range of 2 to 4, and some did have baby siblings. But those babies went in the pool. I was alone in the sun feeling kind of pathetic. A few moms did speak to me, but they were there to play, not sit in the corner.

I will try again, I guess. I pretty much have to if I want Lynley’s sun hat back. I was generous enough to let another baby wear it in the pool, since her mom had forgotten hers. I wasn’t going to spoil someone else’s fun, so I told the mom that we could meet up again and get the hat back. Eh, maybe we do, maybe we don’t. I don’t care. The hat cost $5 at Old Navy.
