First date blues

So I will have to tell two stories here to get to the point of the post.

#1 - I have been looking for a local mommy group to join for about a week now. I finally found New Mommies of South Charlotte Playgroup 2 days ago and promptly joined. The first event I could attend is scheduled for tonight, a Mommy's Night Out! We are meeting at Mr. Food no-Fuss Meals and we are having a food & wine tasting AND we get to bring home an entree all for $10! So I am excited about the opportunity to meet some new people, but for some reason I am nervous like this is a first date. Will they like my new haircut? Is it going to be cliquey or will they accept a new member readily? The pressure...

#2 - I went to the dentist today to have a cavity filled. Of course they numb you up good so my entire lower right jaw was numb. I was starving on the ride home so I decided to eat the apple I brought, I would just chew on the other side. Everything was going smoothly until I felt something weird on my lip. I looked in the mirror and saw that I had chomped down and the inside of my lip was all skinned and bleeding a little. Now two hours later, I have a fat lip.

So here is where the two stories converge. I have a fat lip to take with me to the Mom's Night Out. Yeah, I'll have to say, I gave myself a fat lip. Nice to meet you.

LOL! I've been looking for a group to join too......but yet I'm really nervous.....I'm so shy when I meet people and usually woman think I'm a b(*ch! But seriously I'm not....I'm just so nervous to meet peeps. Hope your lip looks better by tonight! Can't wait to hear all about your new Mom's group!

I love your new haircut! The color is gorgeous! You look great-
How was your Mommy night out? I know exactly how you feel. I've had those experiences, where you go to meet a new group and they have been together for a long time and it's hard to "break in". Hope it was a fun night away!
And I'm totally stealing your Movie Night idea tonight. GREAT idea!

Looking for new friends is just like dating...but maybe more pressure. I mean girls are more judgemental than men about: does this outfit make me look fat?, Is this the right shade of lipstick?, Did those words really just come out of my mouth? Just be yourself. If they do not like you, they are crazy and you should find a different group of people to hang out with!

Want to start a play group?
