Know what else is easier? Making friends. Remember in kindergarten when you met another kid, and you were all, "Oh yeah, you like Darkwing Duck and collect Trolls too? Let's be friends!"
It was easy back then, now it's so much harder. See, here's the thing I have friends, I have amazing friends, but none that live within an hour of me. Here, in our tiny town, I really don't have a close friend. Which means M really has no friends. She has friends at school, but I don't know their parents, so she doesn't really have friends outside of school. And it's killing me that she doesn't have little besties, but ohmygosh, making friends with adults is hard!! I'm no good at striking up conversations, and I'm worse at small talk. So, when we go to play dates, M plays with the other kids, and I pretty much sit there.
What am I supposed to do!? How do you make friends as an adult? It's not like when we were kids, you can't be all, "Oh yeah, you like cupcakes and wine too? Let's be friends!" How do y'all do it? I know there's got to be an easier way, right?? Do y'all have any tips for our next play date? Are there enough questions in this post???? Seriously though, how is it done? Because if I don't make friends with some parents soon, M's going to end up being one of those women who lives with her parents and still plays with dolls at 31. No one likes those people.
