I went out with some mom’s last night via Moms in Tow – it was a Girls night out, essentially, and it was so much fun.
If you ever find yourself as a parent (or non parent, I suppose) in a group of new people might I suggest some of these conversation topics:
Things you never want to read in an email.
So, you went to Diabete’s camp?
Girls vs boys, the diaper difference.
(Admittedly, this one’s for parents … because, awkward.)
Birthing tips, doctor swapping secrets.
Battle stories from the front lines of raising boys.
So, we covered mostly parenting stuff but I haven’t laughed like that in a while. I’m not a current events conversationalist and I don’t often volunteer information about what I do or am working on … and having older children (no longer toddlers with eating schedules, napping schedules or diaper rashes) can make the parenting conversation a tricky one to navigate. But I don’t know, I’m my own kind of crazy (just ask Aaron.) and it was fun to be part of a group of women who understood that part of me last night.
When you get together with friends, old or new, what keeps the conversation going?
