I was a brave Mummy this past Tuesday. I took Baby Boy to a toddler playgroup.
I kind of cheated though as it is at Top Enders School, (in the school hall) so I would know people by sight if not by name and I might see Top Ender walk past on her way to the Library...
Baby Boy loved it, so I guess that I am going to have to go every week.
I am so shy normally, and would put things like this off forever if I could. I reasoned however that Baby Boy needs to socialise with other children other than his Sister and his cousins and the few minutes before and after school.
Luckily, including me, there were only five Mums there, and I think I can handle an hour and a half with four strangers every week!
