I belong to a few mommy boards online. There's Babycenter, the forum that introduced me to how bad the mommy wars can be, and transformed me into the mom that I am. There's a private board in a private place, there's the Babycenter spin off, Bargainhuntingmamas.com, and then there is a local board I found out about early last year. The local board was strange to me, because for some reason, I just didn't picture my little town having something like that.
On the local board, there is a sub forum for AP moms (attachment parenting). About a week ago, I posted about how I feel lonely sometimes, because I don't quite fit in around here. That I've had mean things said due to my so called "crunchy" ideas. Then today, at a Doctor Suess thing at our local mall, I saw a mom babywearing. This is the FIRST time I've seen a mom babywearing outside of the internet. (Bjorns don't count).
It was one of the moms commenting on the thread! I didn't realize it until I had gotten home of course and was updating my thread about the coincidence. Sometimes it's the little things that can seem so big when you are feeling so alone. :)
