Thank you - yes I will. It is a great shame that men do not participate, but is that because they are not interested or is it that we feel excluded and unwelcome? Nevertheless I will bite my lip and happily contribute what I can.
'connect with other moms' and 'join the stay at home moms group' might just make us dods feel excluded. You should have heard the fuss when I announced myself as the chairman of a meeting I attended a few years ago.

I will not be shopping there again.
