Today, I attended a moms group for the first time since I became a mother. I have been wishing to have something like this and at last, I found one. This particular group is from the church I go to which is another good thing because it's something we all have in common with aside from being moms.
We had a guest speaker today who talked about postpartum depression. Although it's been two and a half years since Madi was born, it was still an interesting topic for me and I guess everyone else because a lot were sharing experiences.
After which, there was an activity today wherein everyone brought clothes and toys of their kids that they have outgrown and then you can also pick stuff you like for your own kids- a swap kind of thing. It was pretty neat! I got some pretty clothes for Madi and she had fun picking toys and books for herself as well- she got a cute flower necklace and a pocket book Hello Kitty mirror.
It was a swell group meeting and I plan to attend regularly. It would be a "me time" thing and at the same time my girl will also get a chance to interact with other kids.
