Hi there! Moving to Chicago very soon & would love to connect with other parents! That said, I'm also WOH so meeting others on a weekend here & there would be nice. ... I am part of an AP group where we live now & it meets about once a month for an informal meeting on a weekend. I've met some amazing families there & some children that I & DS will miss a lot when we move. I've also always thought it was really nice that they made a point to meet on weekends (though many of the SAHPs in the group meet for playgroups during the week) so as to include everyone.

 

Would also be interested in learning about any groups that meet during the week that are either welcoming to dads or that dads organize. DH will SAH with DS next year & WAH part-time & wants to meet other families but is a little shy about it.

 

Oh, and we are looking at places mostly on the north side (from near north all the way up to Evanston).

 

Hope to meet some of you some time!

My dd is entering CPS K this fall, her school has before and after care for a fee through the YMCA. You might want to contact the school.

Berwyn mama here! Hi!!

 

We have an AP group here in the area (near west suburbs/city- Oak Park, Berwyn, Melrose Park, etc.). Both online and meetups. Fantastic and diverse group.

 

I'm also a CBE in Oak Park. Great community here.

Hi Mamas! Hope you all are staying cool in this crazy heat. I was wondering what everyone thought of possibly starting a private facebook group for all of us chicago-area mamas to connect and communicate! I just joined one for my due date club and thought it would be pretty effective for organizing get togethers and such with the other local mamas in this thread.

 

What does everyone think? Or is there already something like this set up?

Let's do it!  I relocated to IL last year and then just moved again last week.  I pretty much know where you are, but not sure what's between us and darlawoods!

 

And don't count me out of closer-to-the-city stuff!  :D

I'm on Northwest side of Chicago.  DS is going into 2nd grade at CPS and did the YMCA afterschool program in Kindergarten a few days a week.  He loved it.

 

I'm in for a facebook group.  None of my friends have kids either and it would be nice to connect!

Alright ladies, I'm finally getting back to this and think that starting a FB thread would be AWESOME.  I will start a group on Facebook; PM me your facebook name if you would like to be invited to it!

Alright, group made!  Like I said, if you send me your name I'll add you to the group.  But, you can also now search "Chicago Area MDC Mamas" on Facebook and request that I add you.  Yay!

Hey all, just found this thread and also requested to join the new group.

I'm a single mama to a three year old little dude. We live on the south side (Beverly, Evergreen Park, Oak Lawn, Mt. Greenwood area).

Looking forward to some windy city mama hangin'!

I too asked to get in on that group!

We're in the West Loop, I work full-time, and we have one son who's nearly 1.

I just sent a join request!

I just requested to join the group. I was chatting with a few of you earlier this spring about getting together and I think the FB group is a great idea! 

 

I'm in Rogers Park (just off Morse red line). My first baby is due any day now and I'd like to be able to get together with other moms up here (none of my local friends have kids) and get the kiddo out of the house. :-) We're a public transit family too.
