Challenge #17- I chickened out!

I admit it! I flaked!

Rascal and I have been attending a playgroup run by the local kindergarten. It runs every week, but we only attend on a fortnightly basis due to other commitments. Rascal really enjoys it, but as yet I do not feel particularly comfortable with the adults there.

This week there was a Christmas party. If it had been on the usual day and just for the playgroup, we would have attended, but it was a combined party with the kindergarten. I just didn't feel comfortable attending, knowing that there would be so many people there that I don't know and that I hardly know those who I have met before.

I intended to attend and even got as far as buying a present for Rascal from Santa, but chickened out of attending at the last minute... oops! I don't feel that I am depriving my daughter as she has a couple of other Christmas parties to attend over the next few weeks. I just feel disappointed with myself for having had a shyness relapse. Ah well, We'll just have to make sure that we keep attending when we can and that I get to know the people there better.

On a more positive note, Rascal and I have had a couple of playdates with a little boy from MOPS and his Mum over the last few weeks and we are due to have another one with a different wee boy next week. So even if I have had a bit of a shyness relapse, I have definitely been making progress on getting to know people around me. (YAY for me!)


  1. I know how you feel! We have Riley's Kindy Xmas party next week and I'm quite anxious about it as it'll be the first time socializing with the other parents, eek.

  2. I'm the same, and I've been in the area where we live now for 4 years, somehow, I still don't quite fit in.


I love your comments and do my best to answer them.
