Tacoma/South Sound Moms - August - Page 2

post #21 of 45
Hey all, I am still here. Just two more days until my DH deploys. I had to change my username, for security reasons.

My nephew's 3rd birthday was today. We spent most of the day up at my parents in the blistering heat and are now at home in the living room in front of the a/c.

Only a couple of more weeks until I move. I am so excited to be a south sounder again.

I am starting an attachment parenting meetup this wednesday the 20th of August.. I really miss having frequent face to face contact with other ap parents so I'm hoping this will get the ball rolling. I plan on holding this every wednesday morning for a few months and seeing how it goes.

You can find it on meetup.com by searching for attachment parenting in tacoma

I will hold the first meetup at my house from 9am to 11am. PM for more info or go to meetup.com.

I know I've only met a few of you, but I'd love to meet more!

Kids and parents welcome and bring an ap friend if you want.
Awww man, I won't be able to make it. That is likely to be the 'last day' for MC to play with Daddy. They put it on the 'Tacoma Mama's Meet-up' as well though, just so you know.

My Mom and I dropped Hubby off at 4 am to Ft. Lewis. I am still catching up on sleep since we didn't go to bed the night before the drop off.

I am going to start packing up stuff starting tomorrow. I am still too tired to do it today. Plus, I hate packing and the longer I can hold off the better lol.

Hi girls! I'm in Puyallup too. I was on here about a 1 1/2s year ago and my profile got lost, so I'm starting over.

BellaLuna, good luck on the move. All I know is every time I move, I swear I'm never gonna stockpile crud again, and I'm never moving again. lol

Aud- excited about the AP group! I have wanted to go to the other AP group, but it's waaay up in Redmond and just can't justify the drive. Looking forward to meeting you soon and talking babies.

Miranda, I've been reading your blog for awhile and had NO CLUE you were in Puyallup. Congrats on your little stair climber! Wanna get together at the swings in front of the Puyallup Library?

Aloha - wanna get together?

Jenyum - my DD loves your place at the market too. Must make a point of saying hi sometime. I get shy when I'm out and about tho.
We should schedule a time to get together and meet local mamas! :

Hey ladies. (I recognize Alohamelly!) I just moved to Tacoma and I'm trying to find a good crunchy friendly doctor. Any recommendations?

Are you looking for a ped? If so Fir Creek Pediatrics in University Place is HIGHLY recommended. When I have littles, I plan on going there.

I move soon! I started packing some stuff yesterday. I started with DH's clothes though *sigh* that is always a hard thing to do. I think I will pack up DVDs but not seal the box. Might start packing up my kitchen stuffs too.

I am so nervous and excited to move back to the south sound. I don't know the area very well. DH made me promise to learn a bunch of different ways to get places and to work on my fears of freeway driving.

I was looking for Family Medicine since I want to be seen as well. I'll keep that one in mind, though.

I go to West Seattle Natural Family Medicine and see Dr. Molly Gray, she is awesome!

Can you give me a number and address for that?
post #31 of 45
I can do better! The website with all of that info, plus doctor bios! West Seattle Natural Medicine

Ooooh no, I'm almost positive Tricare won't cover any of that or naturopaths.
post #33 of 45
I am on Tricare too and I pay outta pocket. Molly charges me $80/visit, which is less than she was charging me at her old clinic.

I was recommended Barbara Staab, ARNP by someone on here. She's covered by Tricare.

We had an appointment there last week and it was great. I plan to keep going back.

I am also looking for a Family Medicine doc which is why I was coming to this thread tonight. I really need a doctor for myself since the kids are covered. We went to the Tricare office in Madigan last week and I found out that we automatically get assigned docs at the hospital on post unless we opt out by signing a waiver. Then, if there's a doctor you want to see, as long as they're in network, you can see them. Just put their name on your waiver. No need to transfer to standard or anything. Therefore, I need a doc for myself! Right now I'm assigned to the internal medicine clinic cause that's the only dept taking new patients.

I have another question! I have a lot of things I'd like to part with. Things such as bedding, towels, pots and pans, dishes. Where is a good place to donate these items to?
post #36 of 45
We've been using freecycle.

I decided to go with the Fir Creek Peds for the kiddos. I saw the doc I was assigned at Madigan today and really like him a lot, so I think I'll stick with him for now and just take the kids off post.
post #37 of 45
Goodwill is another place to donate to or Value Village takes donations.

I had to pick another random doc to get back on Prime, stupid Army kicked me off. I'll just change my PCM once I move. I enrolled online so that may be why they didn't have the PCM I was thinking about. Even though I go to the Naturopath, its nice to have an allopathic doc as back up.

I am still plugging away at the packing, kinda hard to do when ya live with other people who keep using your stuff.

Freecyle ... eh. I did join the Lakewood Freecycle last week and I may offer some of my items there but when we were in NC, I frequently had no shows or people picking through and taking what they wanted and it turned me off the whole Freecycle thing. I just want this stuff gone. I was hoping someone would know of a DV shelter or another place like that where I could take this stuff. It's not junky at all.
post #40 of 45
Isn't there a place like that on Lewis? Fisher house...I think.

I go to sign my lease on Friday and I am hoping to move in to my new place this weekend. I may have to beg, cause I know she wanted to make sure it was really clean. I need to get out of this house ASAP. My sister and her friends keep breaking all of my stuff and I don't have the money to replace it. *sigh*

It will be so nice to get outta this place.
