It's just a struggle isn't it, babynomad.
Having my last baby really put a spanner in the works for us as a family in a way.
My son started kindy when I got pregnant and by the end of the year I was heavily pregnant and too hot to want to bother with parties and festive get togethers.
The following year then I was having a hard time adjusting to the new baby, a toddler and the school run all by myself.
I just handled how I handle most hard times, I retreat and deal with it on my own terms.
In hindsight that wasn't the best plan.
I should have pursued some budding friendships for my son's sake even though I was hanging on by a thread that year.
I remember thinking at one point when I didn't even want to do the pick up, hang on in there, it's ten minutes, smile and pretend you're coping for ten minutes then you don't have to talk to anyone else until tomorrow. And that's what I'd do.

Thanks Ladies , I'm also a mum of 3 . Mum oldest has high functioning autism also and that hasn't helped with the isolation thing . Just dropped him off at school and yesterday he bit a kid . The mum told me. We have moved around to find the best possible school for my son and I really thought he was settling in . Today I feel like I am going to be lonely for life ! Arghh! Back on the horse . Xx
