While shopping for summer dresses for my little girl, a fellow mom shopper started a conversation with me. We talked about all the cute clothes for girls etc etc. After a while she told me she was new to the area. I told her it can be hard meeting other Mom’s in our area then named a few places where Moms hang out with their little ones. As we were checking out to purchase our sweet baby girl clothes, I decided to write my name and e-mail down so that this Mom would have a fellow Mom to connect with. She has since e-mailed me and we have a playdate scheduled.
The point of this blog is that I remember contemplating whether I should or should not give her my name and number. She seemed nice and being a new mom in a strange town must be incredibly hard. I’ve moved to new cities several times and making those first few friendly contacts seems to be the most difficult. Assuming no one is putting their life at risk, why don’t we all reach out more? (note: I am not typically this friendly to complete strangers)
