ItsyBitsy - I'm sorry! I have friends here, but the majority are all older, like *my* grandparent's age. We are friends w/ one family who had 5 kids. DD stays after school w/ them, she is BFFs w/ their younges DS who is the same age. Most folks I meet my age still act like wild teenagers and are very mainstream RE birth/child rearing. Which is why I tend to hang w/ the old-fashioned crowd, lol. There is an AP group about 40 miles from me that meets for playdates, but I work outside the home, and can't make it to those. We could totally hang out and get coffee and pastries and talk about growing pains if we were both in Denmark!

Come to MI for your winter apparel! We get those terribly bitter winters here, so even walmart has good coats and hats and gloves.
