A Mom Blog Social Network
Four years and two children ago, I was fortunate enough to move into a neighborhood saturated with stay-at-home moms like myself. As my family grew to freak show proportions, so too did the houses around me grow fuller. Once our children became old enough to venture outside, they quickly formed a posse of neighborhood playmates and the number of little heads running past my window each day grew exponentially. With all of the children on the street indiscriminately swarming from house to house, it was impossible not to become friendly with the neighbors -- no better time to introduce yourself than when little Johnny scrapes his knee off in your driveway. Initially strangers, our small plots of land and extroverted offspring threw us all together, and as a bunch of lonely housewives, we reveled in the opportunity for friendship.
