Bay Area May mamas?

I know there are at least a couple of you out there.  Anyone interested in getting together, maybe sometime in January?  Let me know whereabouts you are.  Feel free to PM me if you don't want to put it out publicly.

I would love to get together - I live in Berkeley. I didn't realize that you're local!

Good thing I asked b/c I thought you meant like "the bay state" which is MA!

Lightheartedmom and Erratum are both local also.  There might be more, but those 2 I've noticed their locations.  I'll bug them via PM if they don't respond to the thread in the next few days.  :)

Just saw this...I miss stuff a lot on here because I only have Internet thru my iPhone right now. smile.gif
I am in the bay area (sf). But don't get out of city limits often (totally lame, I know). smile.gif
what are you guys thinking for meeting up/locations?
Thanks for putting this out there cristeen. It's nice to know there's a few other local mamas on here!

Yeah!  Any others? 

 

Not sure what we could do/where we could meet.  Looks like maryam is a FTM, not sure about erratum, LHM has a 5 yo and a 2 yo, and I have a 2 yo. 

 

LHM, are you anywhere near BART?  We rarely get into the city except via BART, so I know the feeling. 

 

Anyone have any suggestions?  The things I'd suggest for a group of moms would probably be boring for not-yet-moms.

I am indeed a FTM but I don't think I'd be bored by mom stuff! I'll try anything.

Hi there, I'm brand new to this site but joined just for this thread.  I'd love to meet up with you Bay Area folks.  I live in Oakland and work in Berkeley.  Baby #1 due 5.24.12.  You still have open slots for meeting up?

Ok, mamas.  It's January.  Does weekend or weekday work better for you ladies? 

post #14 of 17
The next two months for me are a disaster (something going on every week...I hate being busy). I hope you all can get together, odds are I won't make it. :-/

There is a Bay Area babywearing group.  They do meetups every month. 

South Bay Meeting: 2nd Tuesday of the month, 10:30am-12:30pm
East Bay Meeting: 3rd Saturday of the month, 11:00am-1:00pm
Contra Costa Meeting: 4rd Monday of the month, 11:30am-1:30pm

 

I'm going to try to make it to this month's East Bay meetup, if anyone would like to meet there.  Every weekend this month is booked (we still have 3 Xmas celebrations with grandparents to do), and DS is supposed to start therapy next week (25 hrs/wk), which is going to kill our weekdays.  It'll give me more time to myself to do stuff around the house, but we're not going to be able to get out during the week without advance planning. 

 

I'm happy to host during the week (in the early afternoon), or meet somewhere on the weekends after this month (DH studies on the weekends, so he likes if we get out of the house).  What works for the rest of you ladies? 

post #16 of 17

I'm flexible on Saturday afternoon/evenings, and most of the time on Sundays. I'm also pretty open on Mondays and Wednesdays. I'd love to meet up! I'd offer to host, but our house is a construction site right now, ugh. I'm really flexible, anyway.

 

I might be able to come to the babywearing group this month! it would be nice to see wraps/carriers in person, I'm getting really into learning about babywearing and I think it would help to be around people who are in the know :) we usually go on a nice long hike on Saturday mornings, but I think I can push it to Sunday that week.

Just thought I'd bump this up - the East Bay Babywearing Group meets tomorrow (Saturday) in Berkeley.  I'm planning on being there, if anyone else wants to come check it out.
