I've been involved in a few online mothering communities but none that I've really fit in with.
I'm a single(ish) mom to a 3yo DD and 8.5mo DS. Just here to meet some new mama friends and learn!
I'm glad you've found us and I hope you'll find Mothering a good fit too! I lurked (read, but didn't join) at several online parenting sites, but it wasn't until I found Mothering that I found a place where I knew I would fit in. It sounds like you might really like our Single Parenting, Life With A Baby, and Life With A Toddler forums, but look around because there are wonderful conversations happening in all the forums, so there will probably be a lot of forums that appeal to you. If we can help you find anything as you settle in, please let us know.
lucy3. It sounds like you are in a really challenging situation with your MIL. I recommend that you post in our Talk Amongst Ourselves or Personal Growth forums. Other mamas here have posted about difficulties with in-laws and hopefully talking with others will be helpful to you. Wishing you well during this difficult time as you navigate the relationship with your MIL.
