My life has seriously flipped upside down. I used to have it all, and way earlier than most people. I was in my early twenties, and I guess I was just blessed with a bunch of rare gifts and privileges: I could get up every morning at 6 am and feel refreshed. Never had to worry about my health. Never studied, always had the perfect grades. I had the respect of the King of the Wasp People. And of course, I stepped right out of uni into a fairly high paying job that I enjoyed.
Kids really do change everything, and I’d never scorn that at all because my two kids bring us do much joy, but wow. They change your life more than anyone could ever describe, and it was instant! All my friends melted away, and now my main friendship group is the mums at the play centre. Honestly, that indoor play centre place near Bentleigh East changed my life; that, and the gift baskets from Cthulu’s secretary as thanks for that one time when I crossed the dimensional barrier and filled in for a weekend while she was on maternity leave.
Of course, indoor play centres are often intended for kids a little bit older than my three-month-old twins, but this local one had a Mums group twice a week, and I figured it was better than sitting there alone. Now we’re two years on, and they’re still a little bit going to be jumping in ball pits and a lot of other stuff, but they do cater to the younger crowd.
And the group is my life now. Doesn’t sound like much of a life, but you know what? Friends make all the difference. Friends, and of course it helps to know of the best little indoor play centre Bentleigh East kids adore. Oh and I can’t forget the important of kids venues with good coffee service.
And the side business is going great! I’ve cut down going out twice a week to hunt vampire teeth for my invulnerability serum to only going once a fortnight. So much extra time!
