'Cause I'd love a new friend or two. A little coffee, a little fluff. What more could a Mama want?

Hi Sarah,

We're just south of St Paul, and my little girl was born the day before your oldest. PM me if you'd like to meet up.

Gosh. I gotta get over to the tribe forums more. I originally posted this in the CD forum and the moderators moved it.

Once I get through the preschool angst that will be plaguing my next week or so, I'll have time to PM some of you. I'm in desparate need of some new friends. We relocated to St. Paul 10 months ago from Northampton, MA. I was six months pregnant at the time and with everything that's followed the move, making friends hasn't been at the top of my list of priorities.

I'm just south of Macalester College.

Hey nohomama--

It's not as active as it is sometimes, but we do have a (somewhat) weekly thread. I think it might be the March--in like a (something) thread. I hardly ever read the title :LOL . However, there are a bunch of us that meet at a coffee shop once a week. This particular place has a *great* play area. I love meeting new people, so PM me for details and we canhook up!

Julia (I'm in NEmpls, really, pretty close to everything!)

I was in a new coffee shop a couple of blocks from my house the other day and struck up a conversation with an older woman. She asked me what grade my oldest was in (Lola is tall and looks older than her tender years). I told the woman that she was only three and a half and in preschool. The woman replied, "In my day we didn't have that. The mothers were happy to take care of their children." I wanted to scream at her, "Lady, I love and care for my children 24/7, 365 day a year. The sixteen hours a week she's away from me allows me time to spend alone with my youngest, do things like pay bills and do laundry, and decompress. If that means I'm a bad mother in your eyes, so be it!" I didn't say that of course. I just smiled and walked away. Grrrrrrrr.

Cool! Always up for meeting new mamas!

Thankfully I haven't gotten any preschool flack...my 4.5 year old is doing great and w/o any little boys in our neighborhood near his age, it's a wonderful place for him to play.

Anyway, I'm near Mac, too. I have a 4.5 year old and an almost (I can't believe it) 2 year old!

I love to walk around St. Paul, running errands and going to parks etc. There's a super one that's actually SHADED called Maddox that's south of Mac and just east of St. Kate's.

Looking forward to meeting all you new mama's!

I live three blocks away from Maddox Park. If the weather stays nice, do you want to meet there sometime in the next few days/weeks?

We are in St Paul (Highland). I know what it's like to be new to the Twin Cities which is not easy because so many people grew up here and more than enough social support already. I have two sons (3 1/2 and 8 months) and would love a new play date or meeting at a park or something. I'm new to this forum though and I don't know all of the protocols. Feel free to contact me.
