#1: Play groups/ mommy meetup groups
As some of you know, I just had my son in July. I live in a neighborhood with an elementary school, so there are a lot of young families, but we bought our house almost 5 years ago now. Because we didn't have children, we really didn't have much in common with the neighbors and haven't really made any friends here. When we bought our house, I had moved from out of state, so I really don't know anyone besides old coworkers ( who I don't see anymore now that I'm a SAHM). Anyway, I've looked on meetup.com to see if there were any mom groups in my area and there is one right in my town! Does anyone have any experience with joining these types of things? Is it super cliquey? Will I be welcomed or will I be an outsider? What do the groups typically do?
