Im a 36 year old California girl looking to meet some mommies and hopefully make some lifelong friends, cuz Brissie is my new home. Ive been here about 6 weeks and have had lots of fun exploring, but am feeling a bit lonely with no girlfriends in the area. I moved from cali to tassie since my hubbie's parents retired there. Now that Im a bit more used to aussie way of life (was in tassie for 2 years), we decided to move to some much needed warmer weather
DH works in the CBD all week and I get to stay at home and play with our boys Lockie (3.5 yrs) and Jared (almost 2), while I try to run my doggie dessert company. We spend our days during the week exploring new parks and revisiting the ones we like the best like wynnum esplanade, colmslie beach reserve, minippi parkland by the dog park. We also really like taking the train into southbank to play in the fountains, and recently joined lone pine koala sanctuary and plan on having picnics with kangaroos once a month or so.
Ill tell you a bit about me, and if it sounds like we'd be a good fit, please send me a message so we can plan a playdate at a park, or our house Like I mentioned above, we love our boys and life pretty much revolves around raising happy, healthy, well-adjusted boys. Ive had a few bad experiences with parents who share very different views on parenting and life, so I'll tell u a bit about how I feel. I dont hit my kids, and I dont care to be around anyone who thinks its ok to hit theirs. My boys drive me crazy at least once a day, if not more, at which time mommy takes a much needed timeout. I do tend to drop the occasional F bomb and sprinkle conversations with bad words, but I dont cuss around my kids or anyone else's kids. I actually enjoy watching and playing with my boys. I dont know how many times Ive picked up crying kids with minor injuries at parks and have been unable to find the parents for 5 minutes because theyre deep in conversation or busy texting. I like coffee, I like texting, I like relaxing, but I love my kids and I watch out for their safety and to make sure theyre playing nicely with each other and everyone else. Can u tell Ive had a few bad experiences?! lol
Ok, so send me a message and lets get together for a playdate. Cant wait to meet some mommies and have playdates, adult conversations, maybe the occasional weekend coffee or lunch/wine, and family BBQs
Hope to hear from you soon,
