I'd Never Survive A Cocktail Party

For me, holding up an intellectually stimulating conversation would be like climbing Mount Everest. As a stay-at-home-mom, the extent of my conversations consist of the following phrases:

"Jacob, NOOOOO"

"Jacob, please put that down!!!"

"Jacob, put the chair back!!!"

"Jacob, nooo that's medicine!!!"

"Ugh, for chrissakes Jacob, give me a fucking break" (said under my breath)

I need to take a class or do something interesting just in case I'm ever invited to a party while I'm still alive.

I'm having one of those days :(

  • I think there's a market out there for moms who need to brush up on social skills that don't involve fruit snacks or sandboxes. Sign me up.

  • I'm going to become a stay at home mom in a few months and part of me is absolutely dreading it. I'm planning on finding a choir of some sort to sing with and another book group. I may take a class once in a while, if the funds are there. I get depressed very, very easily and staying at home, talking to no one but my kids and my husband will turn me into Weepy McWeeperton. Nobody likes her and she's definitely no fun at a cocktail party.

  • Keep busy Julia!!!! I'm losing my pregnancy weight from Jacob, so I've been working out which makes a world of difference on preventing depression (which I've been through).

    I also attend Weight Watchers meetings which gets me out of the house. God I'm so not exciting....

    So my health is being taken care of.

    Now for my brain, I'm trying to decide if I should take a French language course or an art course.

    A reading group would be too much pressure because I don't always have time to read and I'd feel like it was homework if I was forced to finish in a certain amount of time.

    Being a stay-at-home-mom is the best, but you will have those days where the kids are climbing the wall and you can't handle them. But most days are good :)

  • Shannon ..... you took the words right out of my mouth!

    I forget how to act around other adults - its scary!

    It's pretty sad LOL - maybe one day we'll look back at it and laugh :D I just hope by then my vocabulary increases....

  • I hope I can look back and laugh too. I just hope it's not a maniacal laugh in the middle of a loony ward, though ;p.
