Oh, there is the play area in the Ghost Town West Shore Mall, I have taken the kids there a few times. I generally avoid those places as germ breeding cesspools, especially in winter, lol, but we could brave it a time or two if you guys want. wink1.gif You never know if it's going to be crowded or empty, though.
 

Gardenmommy, your place works, too, as long as that's something you're comfortable with and wouldn't be too much stress!

Lol, I never go to the basement of the Main branch!  Let's meet there!  Is it child-friendly?  When does everyone want meet?  I can't meet next Tuesday, as I already have two appts for the afternoon/evening.  The following week would be fine, though.  (LOL, I *guess* you could meet without me, heeheee!)

Tuesday March 11th? At the main library in the basement? Not early morning sounds good to me, but maybe like 10am or so? TJ naps usually from about 2-4, but we are flexible with that. 
 

Laura is the other midwife I met with - I was really torn between the two actually, they both seem wonderful. Yolanda seemed to fit my personality a bit better so that was that :)

I think I can probably do the 12th, also.  Like 10:00?  at the Main Branch library on River?

Ugh, SO sorry ladies, and for the short notice. I will NOT be there tomorrow, as I was planning :( We are out of town doing some more packing up/cleaning of our house in Ohio and planned to be back in Holland tonight but the amount of work and the weather is keeping us down here until tomorrow. I would really like to try again though!!!

We will not be there, either, as one of my littles isn't feeling all that great.  LMK how it goes!

Wow! The sickness must be going around. My little guy developed a fever last night, so we won't be going out today. Let's try and plan again!

My little guy seems to be fine this afternoon, but he was pretty sleepy this morning.  He seemed kinda warm last night, low appetite, just not himself.  He has developed a croupy, yucky cough.  I think it's good we didn't go this morning.  I would hate to give it to anyone else.

Hello?! 8 months later, any of you ladies still around?? I ended up having a wonderful homebirth here in Holland, but am still looking for a pediatrician (we do not vax). Any ideas? My 3 year old would love some new playmates if we could ever work out a time to meet? Let me know!

We're still around. :) We see Nurse Practitioner Roberta Dischinger-Smedes in Dr. Zarlenga's office, she is a wonderful, helpful, caring person that accepts that we don't vax, was excited to see that we cloth diapered, which led into talking about how she cloth diapered, and eventually into finding out that we both used the same midwife for our home births. I love her, but I am less than thrilled with the rest of the office. We have never been pressured about any of our choices, though, I will say that.

 

We still need some more playmates, too. :)

We are still here, too.  We are looking for a new dr., so I can't give you any help with that.
