This week on Baby Bunching, we'll be devoting the week to your social life. Yep, that's right ladies, your social life. If you're new to Baby Bunching, you may wonder when you'll get your social life back in between finding time to pee. If you're an experienced Buncher, you'll recognize that your social life is really centered around your kids and their interests. And I'm here to tell you that at 7 and 6, my social life is still 99% wrapped around school, soccer, music lessons and swim.
We are the first to admit the #1 reason we dragged our kids to the playground or some silly library story time when they were young was because WE needed the socializing. And we're pretty sure anyone who sees two Baby Bunching moms trying to cram 2 toddlers and 2 babies into a booth at Panera with all the usual whining, crying, fussing and overpowering gear, must certainly not be a parent. Because any Buncher will tell you we're not trying to go to lunch for our kids to eat expensive mac and cheese--it's for us to be around other moms.
This week we're going to talk about socializing, as well as organized activities, unstructured outings, mom's night outs and finding ways to just get out with your brood even if it's just to Starbucks. We know that once Baby #2 arrives whatever fabulous things you're doing with #1 will be more difficult to do with two. Now that you have two nap schedules to work around and various feeding needs, you'll most certainly have to readjust your activities and expectations.
