I'm Having an Affair

I'm having an affair... with another blog. And I won't be ending things anytime soon. For the next couple of months I'll be writing for VSoM on Wednesdays. The topic this week is Moms.

I'm okay with it... we've always had an open-blog relationship.

Nice blog. I don't know how I feel about your cheating though.

About your post (I don't want to comment there because I am shy) I can sort of understand the "club" mentality because I too felt a little bit of an outcast being the only young person in the ward and the only family without a kid. But I think it is mostly because once you are a mom people feel like they have something to say to you. It is just more comfortable for them. Not that they didn't like you before but that they didn't know how to get to know you. If that makes sense. I just know that I made it a goal to not be like that to not-yet-mothers when I became a mom.

That's so funny about the "club." I absolutely felt that way in our ward in Vermont before I had a baby. I never thought much of it until I actually had the baby, then suddenly people came out of the woodwork to be my friend! I totally understand all the reasons why it can get that way, but it's still hard for the non-moms. So I, too, have tried to keep that in mind. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who ever felt that way.

We are in a family ward and there are only like 2 other couples that are around our age. But I still love the ward and all the ladies pretend like they are my mom, and because I am in the young womens I kind of feel like a mom myself. Wierd. I'm sure when we do have kids though I will have a better idea what the club is all about :)
