Do you have friends not online who have kids the same age as your kids? We have a lot of friends with kids Jim's age (daycare friends, NICU buddies), but not so much Maggie's age.

Yep. Actually my friend group is pretty heavy on kids in general. Several of my friends have BOTH kids born at the same time as my two. One of my best friends has a son about 5 months older than Liam and then another son 4 months younger than kieran (which, of course, now is a big gap...but will be nothing in a couple years). And then a couple others have kids either Liam's age OR kierans age. It is nice to have kids they can play with. Although I kinda wish there were more moms who parented the way I do. Not that my way is better or anything, but I kinda stick out like a sore thumb in my group. Lol.

No i dont i have one local friend who has a son a few months younger than Ross, I know a few other people IRL with kids the same ages as mine but none locally. We are the first of our friends to have kids, so it can be tough and making new friends as an adult is hard

i have met 2 moms in an online moms group for my area one has 2 kids (her oldest is a few weeks younger than Ross and her baby girl is about a month younger than Will) and another mom with a boy, 6 months older than Ross who is expecting her 2nd this october, but we havent gotten together much

Not at all...all the people I knew (meaning I don't really talk to anyone anymore) had kids my older kids ages (I met them through their school and sports)...I don't know anyone with babies...I joined MOPS...I've only been to one meeting, and they cancelled one and I was sick during the last one...There are lots of woman with babies, so hopefully I can meet some new people soon

I have college friends that had kids around the same time as me, but we all moved in different directions, and it's too hard to get together having such young children and working. I take my 2 year old to library day every week and I love the parent's there and we often go to the park afterwards together, but it's very difficult to get together at other times. I work 4 days a week and on my other 3 days I like to do things with the kids or around the house. I have kind of alienated myself but I think once my kids are older and in school then I will put forth a little more effort. Right now I'm just too tired to do much!!

Thank you Cavewoman for my beautiful siggy!

I am so happy that we have friends' with kids Audrina's age! Most of our friends have 2 kids already, so their younger ones are Audri's age.

One friend has a little girl that is 5 months older than Audri and then another friend has a little girl who is 4 months younger than Audri It's really fun to get them together!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!

We moved out of state in 2008 and then to another new state in 2011...so Im still in the process of meeting new friends. I work with a few girls who have new babies & I've gotten together with them a couple of times. A girl who lives down the block from me has a little girl 5 weeks older than Paige so we get together pretty frequently. I joined a moms group but so far I've been too shy to go lol.
