I have lived in Marietta for a few years now, but had been such a work-a-holic I never made time to find some new friends in my area. Well I'm slowed down now with a 3 month old and wanted to try to make new friends, meet other people that my husband and I can connect with, preferably with kids so our LO will have children to play with.
I have been on meetups.com and have found some mommy groups in my area, but I'm hesitant to join b/c there are membership dues. I totally understand the need to offset the cost of the website, and the dues aren't much, but I don't want to just join and find that the group might not be the right fit for me or be able to commit to the timetable and be removed from the group and regret wasting the money.
Is anyone a member of these groups? What do you think about them? Or how did you go about meeting other families/mommies in your area?
Thanks for your input!
