I'd like a place to talk about helping kids with transitions, dealing with the anger and frustration of divorce, career and financial stress, etc. And most of all, I'd like dd to feel like she's not alone as a kid with divorced parents.
Anyone out there, give a holler.
Single mama to a 5yo and 8yo
my name is chesa, and my daughter's name is mina. she is 5.5 and just started kindergarten. we live in the seabright area. my schedule is kinda crazy these days getting adjusted to kindergarten and being a graduate student up at UCSC. let me know what days would be good for you to get together and we can try to figure something out.
what area of monterey are you in? i'm currently seeing someone who lives in monterey. it's been kinda hard because he's younger and doesn't have kids, but i'm curious about how you're doing the transition with the new partner. (if that's not too personal to ask).
hope all is well,
Slugmom...I wrote out this big long response...and realized it's not cool to hijack this thread like that...so I'm going to pop over to the relationship thread to talk about my love life. Feel free to join me over there.
've been a single mom for a few years and have an 8 year old daughter. I am trying to start a group/club (for playdates, hanging at the beach, surf swaps, hiking in the forest, camping, etc). Please contact me if you'd like to join. I plan on eventually making a yahoo group (something more private than say, Facebook or Meetup) and i'll post ideas, and others can feel free to post an idea, lead a hike, etc. It would be great to have other like minded single parents and kids join, especially those who love nature and the outdoors. We're in Santa Cruz.

Look forward to hearing from you,
I wrote a reply yesterday, but it doesn't seem to be posted. I'm new to the forum. I am starting a group/club of single parents (so far mostly moms, but dads welcome too!) with a focus on outdoor activities such as hiking (eg wilder ranch, nisene marks, henry cowell), beach time, surfing swaps, camping (eg big basin, big sur, sierras). My daughter is almost 9 and we live in Santa Cruz. Most activities done on Saturdays, but for camping we'd obviously do a full weekend or longer. Also include shorter activities such as park playtime etc.
