Last night I went to a sort of “Meet and Greet” outing at a local restaurant with some moms from my kids’ school. I have some nice friends/acquaintances, who are the moms of my 2 older kids. However, I don’t know a lot of the moms in my Kindergartener’s class, yet. I thought it was a nice opportunity to meet them!!
Well, let me tell you…within short order, I realized what type of group this was. The conversation went south quite quickly. Most of the women were there to drink heavily. Much of the talk centered around sex and gossip. Honestly, I can’t get too graphic, but apparently one of the moms has sex toy parties, and most recently a “strip tease aerobics” party. She apparently has a “pole”, if you know what I mean. Quite a few of the moms had been to her parties. Some of the moms who hadn’t, were quite interested in being invited.
The mom who organized it(the Meet and Greet), is the mom of my daughter’s best friend. She seemed like a very nice lady. Her daughter is sweet and polite, and a pleasure to have over. I’ve had a little bit of a “gut feeling” about her, but nothing I could put my finger on—UNTIL NOW!:eek:
I basically sat there, with my one lady friend (the only other one not involved with the off-color conversation) with a smile plastered on my face. I simply could not offer anything to the conversation. When it wasn’t sex, sex toys, or tips on how to masturbate, the conversation turned to gossiping about other moms and their kids. What an eye opener!!! I was the first one to leave, and I have a feeling that I was made fun of as soon as the door closed behind me.
Now what? They plan on meeting regularly!! Whoa!! My dh told me just to go once in awhile for a short time to make an appearance(if I’m invited again). I just don’t think I can. I appreciate being invited, but it was obvious that these ladies consider a moms night out as an opportunity to get drunk and let it all hang out!!! Anyone else experience this? Am I just being a prude?? Help!!
