I’ve decided I may not have given friends enough opportunities to help and to support me so I just came out and asked for it. On facebook. Why not? So far, the results have been great.
I’ve gotten a few questions from friends and it’s been great to share about the process. I haven’t heard from a few people I expected to hear from yet, but they might not have seen the post or maybe those friends will fall to the wayside (<—- did I really just use “wayside” in a sentence??) Some friends offered to listen, some offered parenting advice.
I also shared our baby registry (mostly a wishlist for items we still need like baby bottles, car seats and crib sheets). So far, it’s promising and since I’ve posted, someone has bought us a couple things from our registry and we’ve had an offer of used clothing from another friend.
Guess I just needed to ask for help. It’s something I may have to work on a bit, since it doesn’t come naturally to me. But I like the results.
