Suburbia is sucking the life out of me.

I am a suburbia mom.

How the Fuck did this happen. I mean I have never been the ultra hip, night club going, designer dress wearing type. But suburban mom kind of snuck up on me.
I kind of pictured my life in the loft condo, coffee houses, and without kids.

I guess this is where I should tell you I do love my boys. I promise.

There are just a whole lot of times during the week where....I am not quite sure how I got here.

School carnivals, parent teacher meetings, swim lessons, play dates, playing tooth fairy and santa clause....the list goes on and on. And to make matters worse, I swear I have nothing in common with these other women.

They seem so happy in their lives of PTA meetings and soccer games. It just all terrifies the shit out of me.

They have formed these groups....people that get together for birthdays at Chuck e cheese and antigravity zone. They go on "Girl's Weekends" at cabins together and all have been friends for years. And somehow...even though I am a young mom....I missed the memo. Or maybe they just decided not to send it to me. Either way....I am not in the loop.

Sometimes I feel that if I would be included in these ultra seclusive groups maybe all this suburbia life would be so much easier to deal with...maybe being included would make all the blandness of suburbia feel more alive.

  1. I don't actually know anything about the groups of which you wrote, but I suspect the inane prattle about nothing worth discussing that happens frequently in such groups would drive you to gnaw your own extremities.
