Re: Do you get much adult interaction?

I dont have any friends. I attend MOPS every other week. They also have a group developed by MOPS for people with school age kids. It is called MOMSnext. You could also look into being a mentor mom at a MOPS group. My first MOPS group was so cliqueish. They were all moms from that side of town (doctors, lawyers, CEOs) and if you didnt make a certain amount of money then they would not "accept" you. I quit going when the new leader took over and seriously could not have a meeting where she didnt intergrate that her husband was the head doctor at the hospital up the road.

I get enough.


I see my mama friend 1-2 times a week. Library time. Therapy. But i enjoy the time with my husband the most. I see my parents several times a week.

I text with lots of mom daily as well.

Re: Do you get much adult interaction?

Honestly.... as much as i want/don't want

I really am blessed with a wonderful IRL support system..... and if i feel like it i can be gone everyday of the week doing something w/ someone/group.... but honestly most months i "go out" with people (eg have a play date or get together) about 2 times per month..... i just don't have the huge need for social/adult interaction i guess. I am content to casually know a lot of people and have courteous conversation but only a handful of people actually KNOW me, and i feel like i can just say anything and "they get it".....

This actually used to be a point of "contention" when i first moved in - most of the SAHM i know just didn't get the idea that i actually didn't WANT to run around and "do things" with the "cool moms".... after a few years, they just realized its just me - minimal social interaction Mags If i feel like showing up, I am welcomed with open arms, if i choose to stay home to play a board game with E and M they respect that too.

I am pretty anal about my house cleaning, errand running, etc. Schedules are a big deal to me (eg naps, eating, etc) and frankly i just cannot relax and have a good time if those things are not attended to in a satisfactory manner. So yes, I'd rather stay home and do dishes than chat with my neighbor on the porch. BUT if i ever decided the dishes could wait my neighbor would welcome the chat in a heartbeat

I do text quite a bit though with my family and girlfriends throughout the day.... which probably helps some

To all the mamas that want a kindred "soul" to visit with.... I would totally come have lunch with every one of you.... after vacuuming of course

The only adult interaction I get (aside from my husband) is online We moved here in June and I know absolutely no one, we don't even have family here.

Re: Do you get much adult interaction?

I work 5 days a week now and get plenty of adult interaction. When I was a SAHM Most of it came from religious activities with members of our congregation 2-3 times a week, visiting my parents weekly, seeing freinds a couple of times a month and of course DH and MIL who lives with us. I always felt like I had plenty of time with grown-ups and enough adult conversation.

I'm a WAHM and I see adult friends twice a week (with kids though, but they are busy playing and not around us) and clients too.
