It’s nice to know that the grass isn’t always greener:

When it comes to socializing these days, I’m beginning to notice a pattern: Not many moms seem interested in making friendships beyond one get-together.

Motherhood is a lonely gig. This is the real issue, isn’t it? We often read the wrong signals or make concessions to befriend someone we wouldn’t otherwise for the sake of company. I adore my children. But who wants to play in the sandbox alone all day with a 2-year-old? (If you say that spending every waking moment with your child is the MOST FULFILLING day of your life, then I can tell you right now you are reading the wrong blog.) In desperate attempts to hang out with other adults, I tried to make friends with people that weren’t exactly love connections. Why? We need each other. We need adult interaction.
