Being socialable

Since my son started his new pre school, there seems to be a bit of pressure on being socialble and meeting the parents. Maybe its just me, but I don’t want to force my son to be friends with someone just because I am friends with their mum or dad.

Lets face it, it is just me, I don’t want to be friends with people, in the last few weeks we have been invited to a meet and greet, which we missed, cause my partner was at work.

And now they want to meet up on Friday. In the pub, obviously they have no clue about my mental health problems or the fact that you put a glass of wine in my hand than once I pop I can’t stop.

Plus the pub they have chosen, we would have to sell of our car to afford a pint of beer. I really wish I was kidding on that.

The thing is I don’t want to keep send my other half, because he is not the face they are going to see most often at the pre school. And while I dont want to be friendly with people, I also want to make sure my son is at least only half feral. He is a loving little boy, who articulates very well what he wants.

He has his moments, today, he was close to being given up for adoption with his behaviour. (Think of the worse person you know who gets out of bed the wrong side. Time that by 100 and you have my son today)

I just don’t know what to do. Yes its good to be “friendly” but I have gotten to the stage in life thinking do I really want to be their friend just because they happen to chose the same pre school I did.

Or maybe I am just in a weird mood

    I went through this same ordeal when my daughter started preschool. My dad taught at this private school that was for all the doctors, lawyers, and other nefarious rich people. I wanted her to make friends, but I refused to pretend to keep up with some of those people. It was difficult and I ended up moving to a less prestigious school the next year. I don’t want suggest anything because it’s different for everyone. I will say it gets better when they get a little older. You’re less expected to form little social groups with the parents.
