Mallory is kind of shy. She is unsure of new situations and people and hides behind my leg or her sunglasses whenever we're in public.
The other day, she made friends with an adorable little girl. She introduced herself and asked the girl her name! I got so excited as I watch her actively make a friend and they were even holding hands. She ran over to me...her hair plastered to her head with sweat and proudly told me that she had made a friend.
I sat at the sticky table and decided I had to do something. I couldn't let this friend get away so I wrote my name, phone number and email address on a piece of paper and I took it over to this girls mother and told her we were new in town and would love to get together sometime.
I should have left it at that. I should have just walked away but I am a woman of too many words and I had to keep talking....telling her I don't usually approach women in fast food restaurants and that we are really nice people. And then I had to tell her that I don't make friends easily and I almost told her that my husband thinks I'm a snob. Luckily...I stopped myself there and made my escape.
She hasn't called yet.....do you think I scared her off? Or maybe she googled me, found this blog and went OH HELL NO!
Just in case....I decided I should have some Mommy Cards to hand out.
Which one do you like best?
