Mostly it was pretty good, but it was dominated by a few individuals with very strong philosophical views. As the kid got older I found it undermined my confidence and started to make me second guess my decisions. I also saw one of the younger members dealing with a very tough situation get what I felt was bullied by others, which I found really upsetting. Met some lovely people but better off without all the extra drama.
I got bored talking only thinking about kids stuff and I enjoy my days at home so much better now Im doing a few hours work. I am part of a great coffee group. I was dreading going to Antenatal classes because I already had enough friends and I found it hard enough to catch up with them, how was I going to fit in a new baby and coffee groups? As it turns out they were my saving grace. My son is now 20 months old and we still catch up when ever we can. Some have gone on to have their second babies and we are all still there for each other as much as that very first meeting.
