Keep searching for those friends, Laura! I had the same problems when my kids were growing up and entering activities, but eventually ran across some like-minded moms. I remember one mom obsessing over and talking incessantly about her skinny little son’s cholesterol. Another mom wouldn’t speak to us or let her daughter play with mine anymore after my daughter who always wore sweat pants led her be-ribboned Laura Ashley dressed daughter off to play in the mud. But there are plenty of great mom friends out there.
