Today Amare and I went to our first “Circle Time” class. We joined the same group his cousin is in, who is 4 months older than him. It was really nice to get out of the house and be around other moms and babies, and I love the fact that he will get to see his cousin every week. My “sister-in-law” and I get some time to hang out too, which is nice.
Although the class seemed a bit silly at first, I think it will be good bonding time for all of us, and its beneficial to be around other moms. Its great to be able to ask questions and get advice from some veteran moms! lol The class is an hour and a half long, and is filled with sing alongs, play time, and story time, but best of all ITS FREE!
Check out the local YMCA or community center in your area to see if you have “mommy & me” / “daddy&me” classes. Are you involved in one of these groups?
