Would you ever ..?

When I lived in NY if you had ever mentioned that I would have a child and have friends we'd never met before come over to our house to play I would have laughed at you. Can you imagine? Let alone opening up your home to over 30+ people? Little ones included, of course. 

I could never have imagined it, either. Until I moved here to NC, had a baby, and found TriangleMommies. Yes, in all seriousness, I would never have thought that I would open up my doors to fellow mommies and their little ones, let them run rampant throughout the first floor of my home, and not think twice.

Yes, I had my fears the first time someone came over to pick up me and my daughter for a few hours at the farmers market. And I certainly thought twice before letting someone come over and play, or when hubby dropped me off at someone's house for a few hours so the wee one and I could have communication with someone besides each other. And she was so tiny that there wasn't much happening between us verbally at that point!

But yes, here I am. After today's play date I will say that I have lost count of the number of times I've opened my doors and welcomed in strangers. But to me, these are friends, future friends and friends for my child. And I trust that we're all in this together, so it's worth it. I haven't been let down yet! (Whew ... breathing a sigh of relief!)
