My family is moving to Portland in August so I can take a new job, and my husband will continue to be at home with my 4yo and 22mo little boys. Is there anybody out there that knows of good groups in the city that would be welcoming to a daddy (with or without me there)? Or wants to hang out? :) We'll be in the city (right now, near Alberta Park if that means anything) for at least the first year we live there to learn more about the area.
He's an awesome, gentle daddy (and a great cook, coffee roaster, musician), but he has trouble finding a community of parents sometimes because he's a man :( This has been hard on us, but harder on our boys- and what does that tell them about being boys? We're hoping it'll get better after we move.
Oh, and while I'm at it, pediatrician and dentist recommendations wouldn't be turned down either ;) We would like a doc who is ok with delayed/selective vaccination, intact penis care, holistic health, and you know, nice, but we'd settle for someone that just wasn't horrible and judgmental. And we'd like a family friendly dentist who isn't anti-nursing and can do dental work without mercury/heavy metals...
