Some Party Hopping Reflections

March 7, 2007

I’m having so much fun at this Ultimate Blog Party. There’s over 800 people now. I like to visit the “latecomers” because I never on time for anything these days either.

One thing I’m enjoying is meeting other “young” moms. I was 25 when my girls were born (okay, I did turn 26 the very next day) and I’m Asian so I look younger than I am. (Well, I used to until the twin stress gave me gray hair and wrinkles.) We moved to a completely new area last August at the same time that I quit my job and my best friend moved to Arizona. With two babies I don’t have alot of time to socialize either. So the few friends I’ve made have been through my mothers of twins club. They’re a great group of women but twins are more common the older you get and I think that I might just be the youngest member of the group. Sometimes it’s a little weird being the only one in the room that doesn’t really remember the 80’s.

PS – Not that I don’t love meeting all you moms and grandmoms. I learn something from everyone. But I don’t have a single mom friend who is younger than me. It was nice to find that there are some out there!

    I’m a “young” twin mommy too… and I can relate. I was barely 26 when my girls arrived and they were #3 and #4 for me. Everyone in my twins club is older than me I think. Do you get asked if you are the nanny? I hear that all the time. LOL

    Thanks for visiting my blog during the party. I’m far from a young mommy. Some days I wish I had the energy that I did 10 years ago. The kids seem to suck it right out of you πŸ™‚

    It was great to meet you. Enjoy the rest of your week.

    Hi! I found you through the party! I hope you are having fun!

    I know what you mean about being the youngest. All of our friends already had kids so by the time we had Connor last year I feared I was going to be the only one with a young one! One of my friends is pregnant now but there aren’t any kids his age. They are all 2+ years older than him. Oh well. I figure when he gets in school I’ll start meeting people that have kids his age and hopefully I’ll get along with them. =) LOL!
