Naptime is actually the only thing Cameron is flexible with these days, so pretty much whenever is good for us, too. Am I remembering correctly that you suggested noonish? And then Arwyn said 11ish? What if we say 11:30, would that work for everyone?

Grats, Nicole!

Are you going to doula more now then? (Can I use "doula" as a verb? lol)
post #43 of 146
My preschool did Lee Farms last year too... I assume that's where we are going again. I didn't like that we had to pay for a tour and yet the tour wasn't geared for the age group... we could not keep up, so we missed all the narration- who rushes 3 yo??. This year, I think I will just 'get lost', and wander off and skip the tour and just do the parts we did like- and consider our tour fee paying for our pumpkin.

My mom is stuck on us going to Roloff Farm, anyone know it? Some deal about a pirate setup? I saw their sign the other day...

Was anyone else interested in going to Lakeview on Friday? Minta? I think you were the only one. I will probably go either way around 11 am. Unless its really rainy.

Roloff Farm is pretty neat but it gets really crowded on the weekends. I think they are more strict about climbing the cool structures they have there since they had an accident last year with the pumpkin catupult. Or else they are charging more now. For one reason or another I didn't go back last year. Look them up, they have or had a reality show based on the Roloff family.

Woohoo!



Nicole, congrats! (Doula is totally a verb, btw )

Sunday at 11:30 would be fine. We could do noon, we may just have to cut it shortish. Where the heck is this place, anyway?

I started massage school last week. : Second class is tomorrow. Not that I wasn't still crazy nervous, but it wasn't as bad as I'd thought. I'm eager for tomorrow, anyway.

Arwyn, I was just going to ask how your massage classes were going!

Hope you have fun in the second class!!


I want to go to the pumpkin patch, but am waiting for a sunny day.

I know, took me long enough, huh? Cameron deciding that he will only nap in the computer chair totally helped my post count.

Sooo...when do those free massages you promised start?

Yes, I am! I completed my last birth for my certification a little while ago. I'm working on getting my business up and running.

And yeah! Doula is totally a verb!

yah, that's why mom is pushing it, she saw it on tv and kieran used to love pirates. i may just say that i ran out of time, cause we are gone for 2 weeks. i don't want to pay admission, i already have to pay for school, and i can go to sauvie for free which is closer anyway.

can i vent here as well as the big thread?
skip this post if you dont want to read about my drama and strife

so you know how i was so sad and upset over the loss of a friendship that happened a lil while back? well i just found out why. turns out that a grown woman started telling her things about me and convinced her we shouldnt be friends. that she would be better off without all of my negativity, etc.
THEN two more grown ass women started gossiping about me. telling her untruths and pretty much just making fun of me.
cause its so much fun to make fun of the fat geeky socially awkward lesbian who married a man that already has a hard time making friends and is mourning the loss of a friendship BEHIND HER BACK.
seriously. i thought i left highschool 10 years ago.
looks like these three women didnt.
seriously what type of grownup does that?!!!
i am so pissed off and hurt right now.
i hope that if anyone ever has any issues with me that they can say them to my face instead of acting like a mean spirited child and gossiping behind my back.

I'm still interested in going, and yes I will pass too if it's raining. But would you be interested in doing something indoors if it rains? I haven't checked the forecast, but you never know, it was nice for parts of today (we just came back from the park) but then the middle of the day was so ugly. Luckily I was at work then.

Hi PDX Mamas (and Papas)-

I hope you don't mind me jumping in. I am moving to PDX and was looking at a house in the NW.

My new job will be on the Eastside between the 5 and Lloyd Center close to Steel Bridge. The house is near St. Johns bridge.

Would this be a bad commute? I know it's difficult to go from East to West but I hadn't heard anything about the traffic going West to East.

Thanks!

Hey West siders! Question for you!

It's looking like we may not be able to afford to have DH be a SAHD (sooo depressing....but are surviving). The biggest problem we have is that would mean we would have to find someone to do day care (that we trust) with a 2 month old. It will be so heartbreaking....but I don't know what else to do.

I think I remember reading that most places can't even take less than a 6 month old, is that right? But anyway, what I'm asking for is recommendations of daycare on the far west side. We live in Forest Grove and I work in Hillsboro, and I'd really like to not have to go further east than Hillsboro.

Help?

Tiff, sorry about your friendship woes. It sucks that you have to find out the hard way that friends aren't what you thought they were.

MrsSoup, PMed you.

Zooeyzoo, I don't think that would be a terrible commute, but I've never driven it in rush hour myself so hopefully someone else will have good info. Google maps has a traffic view you could check out at that time of day.

I'm so sorry, I can imagine it will be hard to find someone who you trust with you little baby. But that's not true that 6 months is the minimum for most places. Most day care centers will take babies as young as 6 weeks, but I guess different places make their own rules. I don't live out there so I don't have any specific recommendations but my suggestion would be to start interviewing people early and often. In-home daycares are really popular here, esp., since day care centers can cost you over $1000 a month for full-time care, but I am sure they vary a lot in quality. In-home places can have up to 6 kids for one provider which I think is a lot. Day care centers are usually 3:1 for the babies' room. Craigslist is a great resource, that's how I found my current child care provider and we her!

sorry I don't have time to read and catch up right now, but i wanted to see if anybody here wants orion's old single bed frame. i want to bring it over here, but ron is being lame about it. he says if it is taken apart he doesn't think it can be put back together again since he kindof bolted together to make some repairs. so the catch is, you would need a car big enough to take it whole, or else be prepared to have a project on your hands. it is a pretty nice wooden frame. the other thing is, it needs to be gone pretty quickly. i am going to be putting it on freecycle right now, so first come, first serve this time around. please pm me if you are interested.
