do normal grownups with children have friends

do you just kind of wander around the neighborhood with your children until you happen to run into another adult who has similar interests

#this has been a pointless update on my life #socially awkward #i'm just feeling really alone lately #i have like no support system right now #and we're about to move to a new community so it's hard to convince myself to try #when i'm leaving in like 3 months #but last time i was pregnant my college friends still lived in town #and they threw me a shower and were interested in my life and excited about my baby #besides a couple relatives and one very kindhearted college boy Husband works with #nobody has asked if we need help #nobody has offered a shower #not even at church #probably ignore this #i'll delete later
