I didn't want to read and not reply--I've had so much trouble finding other mamas to connect with in Olympia--and it's so weird because I've lived here FOREVER and love this town and really do have a lot of connections; I JUST.CAN'T.SEEM.TO.MAKE.A.PLAYGROUP.HAPPEN!
I met up with a few mamas from here when I had my first daughter, about 4 years ago, but that never really took off. I kind of lurked on the board when I went back to work and would see some things kind of start to come together and then never really go any place. Honestly I don't get it! Olympia is a great town and I KNOW there are a ton of great, crunchy mamas here, I just can't seem to actually meet any of them!
Anyway, I'm due with my second any day now and am really starting to worry about the isolation factor of not knowing any other mama again. I'm crossing my fingers that maybe, hopefully, possibly we can get something started around here.
