No, it's not that official, but I am uncomfortable with the "process". There are four moms (myself included) and they just want to make sure that everyone clicks..it's a very intimate co-op, and we go to each other's homes, etc. I always just feel like I'm judging someone, and I'm not comfortable with it. I get their point, we DO all want to get along/etc, but still. Maybe I'm over thinking it, I don't know. I pretty much welcome anyone with open arms, so perhaps that is why I'm uncomfortable. It's not even in my nature to rule someone out.

Have u guys excluded people before?



That's not my nature either. I don't think id be comfortable with it either. I understand wanting to click. But I think a relationship could be formed even without an initial click.

I don't know how to bring it up to them that I'm uncomfortable with it. We had a play date about a month ago, and then invited her to join us. The entire time I just wanted to keep apologizing to her. I even thought about telling them I couldn't come today, I'm so uncomfortable.

No, we've never decided against someone. I really don't think we would, it's just the idea that I'm really uncomfortable with, I guess.

That was someone else. I have been studying criminal justice since high school. Lol but thanks. It's still in the same criminal justice field just a different job. Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

Ooh ok sorry haha. Will it set you back? Like what are your concerns? Good luck. I'm lucky and my degree doesn't get affected but I change my mind a lot about what I wanna do with my degree. Right now I teach prek. But sometimes part of me wants to be a child care director (never wanna work child care as a teacher though) because I really like licensing business. But idk. I think Id miss the kids.

Hello ladies! How is everyone doing?
All is well here. DH starts back at work next week. Yay...he's been so bored at home.
I have a prayer request. A dear friend of mine found out yesterday that she has cancer for the 3rd time. It looks to have spread from somewhere. They are in the process of finding the source(if they can). I hate cancer....this is so unfair. She's been through so much. She's in her mid fourties..so young to be going through this. Also her son is in some criminal trouble right now. She just need so much prayer. She said she feels different this time, the pain is strange and more intense. My heart hurts for her and her family. Her name is Tracy. Please join me in praying for her and if you have a prayer group you could pass this along to I would appreciate it!!!

Thanks ladies. I've seen God heal "terminally ill" people in my own church congregation a few times. I know He can. I'm staying positive for her!!
