Starting a Moms Group

I decided right around New Years that I was going to conquer 2012.  What I mean is that I plan to give as close to 100% as I can to the things that matter to me.  I made one resolution, and that was to Celebrate Small Victories.  I have been doing pretty well with that, which isn't all that impressive with it being only 15 days into the year I guess, but it's really hard to take things slowly when you have big dreams.  

One personal flaw that I have become conscious of is that I am somewhat of a hermit.  I would be completely happy for the most part just being at my house with my son all day everyday.  And of course my husband, but I like it when he leaves me alone sometimes too.  This is absolutely not reflective of my feelings toward anybody.  I genuinely like the people that I get to spend time with.  

I can't explain it, but I can change it.  I took the first step towards correcting this by instating a  family dinner once a month.  My next step is to make more friendships with fellow moms, and more importantly other women.  I have one girlfriend who has been by my side since I was 18.  She is the best friend anyone could ever ask for.  I love you Beth.

Even when I was a complete A-hole in my early twenties, she would keep harassing me until I called her back.  For one reason or another friends have come and gone in my life, and though I know I can count on Beth to lend me a partially deaf, 80 year old ear, I think it might be beneficial currently for me to expand my friend pool.  

I finally put out some feelers for something I have been thinking about a lot lately.  The initial response was good, so I'm going for it.  I am going to start a Mom's Group.  


The plan is to hold a little gathering for brunch once a month with some fellow moms and their little ones at my house.  I will document as much as I can about the planning and execution in case any of you ladies are considering something similar.  Right now I am planning on making all of the food, and just chatting and playing with our kids.  

Do you go to a moms group?  Do you have any suggestions or tips that I should know about?
