There once was a lonely new mummy,
Who found it occasionally tough,
To sit all alone with her offspring,
As frankly – it wasn’t enough.
It’s not that she wasn’t besotted,
With her beautiful bundle of joy,
But there’s only so much conversation,
To be had with with a small girl or boy.
She’d always had so many friendships,
With school friends and work pals galore,
She’d always be out every weekend,
And staggering home at half four.
But now she was governed by childcare,
And frequently on a curfew,
With limited gossiping subjects,
That mostly revolve around poo.
She longed to have someone to chat with,
To ask “Hey – does your one do this?”
A someone who’s not phased by play dates,
Or put off by snot, poop and erm wee.
So, snuggled at home with her offspring,
She thought that it had to be time,
To stop bloody Googling “rashes”
And search for a Mum friend online!
This Mummy was not disappointed,
She quickly found “Meet Other Mums“
Who gave her a very warm welcome,
And offered a host of new chums!
She logged in and entered her details,
And registered quickly for free,
Then set up a tailor made profile,
Whilst dreaming of play-dates and tea!
She listed her hobbies and interests,
Her values and parenting style,
Her frankly obscene cake obsession,
Her background and what makes her smile.
She noted the “Looking for” section,
And searched through the options with love,
Cocktails and coffee and play-dates
She swiftly ticked “All the above!”
Then one little click onto “Matches”
And there they were – simple as that!
So many like minded Mummies,
All local and happy to chat!
The Mummies and offspring united,
And formed an incredible force,
As strength is located in numbers,
(And plenty of cakeage of course!)
With years of adventure before her,
And days not as long as they were,
She wandered off into the sunset,
With lovely new friends…
Just like her!
Meet Other Mums is a brilliant site, which allows Mums to search for other Mums in their area who have similar interests, access a great chat room, and take advantage of unique offers. For example, New Members will currently receive a unique code for 15% discount when shopping at JoJoMamanBebe! Who doesn’t like a discount?
Meet Other Mums also hosts a blog feed which I am very proud to feature in, along with some of the best writers in the blogosphere. You can check them out here.
