First Timers

today Wyatt and i attended our first ever play group.  it was a small group (3 kids this week, 4 next time) and was run by the school that Wyatt will be attending in the fall.  it was such a pleasant experience. the other kids were darling, Wyatt loved the games and songs.  and it was so nice to be doing something special just for him.  just playing with other children.  no therapy, no doctors.  just playin'.  he's wiped out now. taking nap #2.  It was also nice to be around some moms that have some similar day-to-day experiences that i do.  but i couldn't help but notice...(carrie bradshaw anyone?)  

that i haven't been the best at venturing out and putting us in new and potentially awkward situations.  i am always amazed that more people don't stare, don't ask questions and don't make me feel "different".  well, kudos to everyone out there for not doing it.  but i also think it's because i don't let them.  i (and by I, i really mean we) have been an over-protective, sheltering mama for the past 2 and a half years.

i'm determined to change that.  so playgroup is my first try.  not such a bold move, i know.  but, hey, it's a start.

i also know, that with the addition of a little brother, Wyatt will be thrust into new situations.  we will be thrust into new situations.  questions will be asked.  and hopefully, i will be steeled enough to answer them...but for now, we'll enjoy our own little bubble and try, try TRY to break out!


  1. I think it's pretty darn bold, and brave, of you. So happy that you and Wy had fun:) xoxo

  2. so glad you tried something new and enjoyed it! you both are always welcome to join Isabel and I and any/all friends for any get-togethers. it would be great to see you and Wyatt and that baby belly. :)

  3. yay for new things! sounds like the more you are comfortable, the more others become comfortable. hope you are doing and feeling well. xoxo.
