Any babywearers in the Toronto area? We have a playgroup that meets up weekly on Wednesday afternoons, alternating between the East and West ends of the city. More information is available on our web site (http://www.koalamamas.com) or you can email/PM me for details.

Happy slinging!

Hey Melissa! We're in the East end this week, meeting at Dufferin Grove Park. The weather is supposed to be clear and hot, so hopefully they'll have the wading pool open for the kiddos!

We're also planning a weekend picnic to celebrate our first year. We'll be meeting at High Park on Sunday, June 20 (Father's Day). Should be a load of fun!

Hope you can come out to play soon!

Most likely not in the same spot. I'm calling today to see about renting a picnic spot. Not sure how many people we'll have, but if it's over 25 you need to reserve a space.

We're also trying to decide on potluck or having everyone pitch in a few bucks for food. It looks like the later.

Just hashing this all out on the Yahoo! group right now.

Thanks for the bump! I *am* a new Toronto parent, and I live just up the way from Dufferin Grove Park. I am really looking forward to meeting the playgroup tomorrow!

Where in the park do you meet?

Somewhere on the grass around the playground/water park area. We'll be hard to miss - just look for the large group of mamas with slings!

Look forward to meeting you!

Ok... We will not be meeting at Dufferin Grove Park today after all. The weather just doesn't want to co-operate. We'll be at our West end location instead - the Islington United Church. See the site for details and directions. http://www.koalamamas.com

Hi Heather! Where in Newfoundland are you living? I grew up in Clarenville (with some time in Gander). Sorry, no crunchy peeps to put you in contact with. But have you tried posting in the 'Finding Your Tribe' forum?

I may be going to NF for a brief visit this summer. If you're anywhere near where I might be, I'll look you up! At least you'll see another cloth diapering, babywearing mama in real life for a change.
