Glad to realize I am not the only one who felt this way- we only attended for a while- and I dreaded it!! All the reasons you mentioned above- the competition- the little "groupies' - I thought the groups were suppose to be geared to support new moms- and I looked forward to that- I didn't need to know about their labours,the cost of what- or the town gossip either.
The other thing that bothered me- was that none of the toys seem to get washed- yikes!!!!! And people would come even if their kids seemed ill- scary!! We were definitely out of there!
