Social Skills

Posted by lena on June 29th, 2008 filed in baby news

No one told me that having a baby drastically diminishes your social skills.  Maybe this is a phenomenon that doesn’t happen to everyone.  Maybe my social skills already sucked.  Whatever the pre-existing conditions, I find it incredibly difficult to carry on a conversation that doesn’t revolve around my baby.  Believe me, I can see why this would be boring for most people, and I pity the folks that get stuck talking to me a parties, but I’m also amazed how the combination of baby focus 24/7 and sleep deprivation really turn me into a social blob.

We went to three BBQ’s this weekend – I was able to carry on fun conversation at one of them – it was the baby class reunion BBQ!  Has my life been reduced to a series of awkward conversations where people politely inch away from me and run for the hills?  Oh well…just another thing I can add to my list of things I did before having baby that I can no longer do.
