I’m one of those extroverts who can make friends with someone in a few minutes. Be it a pleasant interaction with a cashier or deeper conversation with a person at a bus stop, I crave connection and love hearing someone else’s story. I can find common ground with anyone and don’t see the point in being closed off or devisive.
Making friends as a mom seems nearly impossible some days. I would love to have more local parent friends and more kids Wallace enjoys playing with. Somehow my attempts to connect with parents at gymnastics and story time don’t go much beyond pleasant chit chat despite seein the common ground. Since I can’t make people hang out with us, I will keep focusing on the friends we have already, though hanging out with anyone doesn’t happen weekly.
