Things we covered last night

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?

  1. With my friends it is all about taking your pants off. Or putting them on. Any conversation that begins with “Guys, I need to put my judgy pants on for a minute” or “Lisa, you need to take off your judgy pants” is a good one. It usually involves how we feel around other moms…. and giggling. FRIENDS ARE GOOD.

  2. SO here’s the thing: I would like to be inducted into this Pants Off group of people/thinking. A ceremony is involved, I’m sure. When and where? 😉 (That is awesome.)

  3. The “ceremony” occurs when you least expect it… Keep that in mind when you consider which undies you are going to wear each day.
