Trying to socialize toddlers is hard. My toddler hadn’t interacted with another child at all for 4 months so I was elated when an old acquaintance reached out asking to get our kids together. Today we watched them play outside for about 45 minutes and the kids had a blast, but us moms...meh... I think it’s been too long since we last interacted (over a decade), and it was awkward trying to make conversation with masks on, etc. I would like to do it again, but my heart knows it’s probably not going to happen (I texted thanking them for coming and no response for the rest of the day) and now I am even more depressed about not having friends around than before. Oh well, at least we tried.
