I don't want her to dislike me...I don't care what she is about as long as she loves her children and treats them like gold, is an honest, kind person...but I worry about the silliest things!
Hehee let me approach that from the other side. As a vegan, I always wonder, will she invite me over for lunch & I'll have to bring my own food? Will she be offended if I turn down the brownies she baked? Will she be grossed out if she discovers we use family cloth & no shampoo? It's very isolating being "crunchy" in this area & I think many of the crunchy moms welcome anyone even remotely open to crunchiness!! Plus there will always be "crunchier" moms out there!!! I don't EC, so I might see you & think you're way crunchier than me, ya know?
Anyway, I've been stalking this thread 'cause I struggle with the same thing, right down to being super introverted. And I have trouble finding any mommy/baby groups that meet nights/weekends (I WAH 8-5pm) so I feel so pathetic saying this, but I don't have a single friend in the area!!!
