It occurs to me that one way to smooth my transition into life as a stay-at-home mom might be to meet other moms in my situation. So we can bond over stuff like hurty boobs and projectile poop and swap advice about how not to stick your head in the oven (does that even work?).
So I've been searching the Internets for SAHM groups in the area. There are tons, but the problem is they all seem to suck. How do I know, without even attending a meeting or talking to group members? I'll tell you. They ALL use comic sans on their web pages. Which tells me all I need to know.
I'm not asking for much. People with pulses. A certain level of tolerance for bad words spoken in relation to baby matters. A lack of squeamishness about detailed descriptions of bodily fluids. And, OK, yes, a level of intelligence high enough to pick a font -- any font -- other than comic sans. Also? Don't tell me your group likes to have a good time, and then tell me that idea of a good time includes slumber parties and "mommy makeovers." I am not 12. I am well over 21, in fact, and I would like a goddamn margarita.
