When I take my daughter to school, and we have sometime to kill before the bell goes where will you find me?
Chatting to other parents and carers? No.
I’m the one you will find playing chase with my child, while getting looks from the other parents while their child sometimes join in the game.
Yes I am THAT mum.
There was a time I used to yern for other mummy or daddy friends, but it just never works out. Everyone knows someone from older children, groups etc. So as much as I tried they would rather talk to someone that they are familiar with. Or they will chat but it never goes further.
I used to really bother me, and left me wondering what was wrong with me. It’s took me awhile but now I don’t give a flip, we are just not compatible I have not yet met my fellow bonkers parent in my local area.
