One of the nice things about taking pre-natal exercise classes through Baby & Me Fitness besides staying in shape throughout my pregnancy and being around other pregnant women is that I made some new friends along the way.
I have to admit that I would not normally befriend women. I am an engineer by training and have mostly been around guys. In fact, I feel more comfortable around guys. After all, guys don't play the catty games that many women play; what you see is what you get. Alas, guys can't give birth, so women friends it is! That's not to say that my old group of friends is no fun. It just means that I've expanded my circle of friends.
At any rate, I've managed to stay in touch with a few of the girls from my classes, and this week I was able to get out to meet up with a couple of them. It was so nice to be able to meet up with other new moms in the middle of the day to just hang out. We are all puttering around at home all day on a normal day. This at least forces us to get out of the house and be social. And when our respective little are old enough, it gives them the opportunity to interact with other kids.
