I saw this article about The Curse Of The Mummy Club which mentioned Mumsnet so I thought I'd ask Mumsnetter's opinions!

Bonding with other mums can be great, but in my experience I found that making friends with someone just because they had a baby was disasterous!

i wouldn't say that i've made friends with other mums for my children but rather for me as all my old friends have yet to entry the realms of parenthood. I agree with fastasleep though about making friends just because you have a baby, when i did an nct class i assumed that these people would become lifelong friends simply because of what we had "been through together" but we met up a couple of times after the babies were born and it then petered out as appart from the children we didn't have much else in common

Ooh - mumsnet is not just limited to mothers who want to make friends with other mothers!

You only have to look at the um, broad range of subjects that are discussed to see that we are not baby-obsessed at all.

This kind of article is reason why I gave up reading big tabloids like the Daily Telegraph - hope they read this!

Don't we do it to stop banging off the walls with boredom? I've definitely found that I'm loosing my vocabulary. I have to go back to university in September and need the practice!

I think it's someone who "has it all"

Think Jamie Oliver's wife
