Keep the invitations coming!!

As humans, we always want to feel included and as though our presence matters.  It seems, however, when we become mothers, that we often stop being invited to things.  People assume we'll say no because we can't find a sitter, don't want to leave our babies, or just can't come to whatever at that time.  And you know what?  You are probably right.  But please, DON'T stop inviting us!  The sentiment that our presence is desired is important.  And we won't have the level of obligation forever that we have now.  Eventually we'll feel secure leaving our kiddos with a friend, family member, or babysitter, or our kids will be old enough to be left with a sibling, or even by themselves.  And as soon as that happens, we'll be back out on the social scene.  But until then, please continue to keep us in mind!
