Hello lovely blog-world friends. This might be a TMI post, so if you don’t feel like reading emotional drivel, best stop now. 🙂
I think my body might be preparing to get back into cycles again, because lately it feels like I’m having the worst case of PMS ever. At least, I kind of hope that’s what it is! Did any of you mommies notice your PMS symptoms got worse after childbirth? Prior to having kids, I never had cramping, bloating, mood swings…pretty much nothing. But now I get all those things. Primarily mood swings. I get depressed, lonely and needy when I’m PMSing. What’s up with that?
Here’s another question for those of you with young kids. How often (say, how many times a month) do you hang out with other women, just for fun? Don’t count organized things like MOPS or small group, but things like a girls’ night out (even if just to meet for coffee) or a playdate so you can chit-chat while the kids play. I’m just curious if I’m setting my expectations too high and that’s why I feel so friend-less. I often think about college and how fun it was to live in community with my friends, all just a stone’s throw away from each other. I obviously don’t expect married-with-kids life to be just like that, but I think it would be fun to just “do life” with another friend or two–run Target errands together, plan a party together, take our kids to the mall or the zoo or church events. But again, I think I may have unrealistic expectations.
And since I hate to put up an entire post without a photo or something fun, here’s a lesson:
