We're "Uptown" and I love our apartment. We're still painting and settling, but there's time recently for thinking about real life. As in, life outside getting the books on shelves and finding a way to hang our bikes. What's going on out there, in Saint John?!I have been a hermit i need to get out but hopefully some of that info will help.. there are natural parenting moms and dads in sj.. our ranks are growing so dont give up
I got a membership to the NB Museum, we're signed up for "Babies in the Library", but I feel sort of lost. Sounds to me like you have a good start
Oh, I'm a former midwifery student, IDS grad, mama to one DD (13 months), and hoping for another soon. Maybe i should have a welcome to sj get together for you with a few of my natural minded moms? would you be interested?
