I know I posted about this when it happened, but two years ago I tried to go to a mommy's group playdate at someones house and it was a disaster. The mom was "perfect" and her kid was "perfect" and Lucas was at his crazy 2yo stage and Ryan had just been born and it was awkward and made me feel like the most horrible mom.

Well it took me three weeks to figure it out, but that kid is in Lucas' karate class at the YMCA. I thought I recognized the mom, but I figured that I'd just had seen her around the Y. Her kid is still "perfect" of course. Except for the fact that he won't leave her side and participate in the class!

Also, kind of funny, but there is a girl in the same class that was in the baby/mommy group we went to when we first moved here. Lucas was like 5-6 months old. I remember this little girl because her name is Noa and she was walking at like 7months.

The area I live in is too small!

I think you have much more well-rounded and socialable children then that other lady. So, did you speak to her or will you?

My boys are also full of energy/silly call it what you will so I know how you feel about being around "perfect kids" I think this showed you that everyone has their shortcomings though!

Now, you do realize that every mom feels like that at one point or another? That our child is a hellion but someone else's child is a perfect angel. I usually just hang around those people more often because the more you do, you WILL see their child acting out (eventually). And see, her child is not perfect....he's too scared to leave her side to participate in class.
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

Love those moments when your child is doing something their child should be doing, even though they still think they are perfect...
