We moved to Columbus this spring but haven't really made any new friends.

Are there playgroups or other fun things I should check out?

I don't know about playgroups, but Firefly (in Clintonville) is a good play cafe... you pay $4 or $6 for your little depending on their age, and then they can play in the space and you can hang out. Also COSI (science museum, downtown) is rumored to have a great toddler play area. We haven't been since kiddo was about 6 months old, but I think we will go there more this winter. We bought a zoo membership this year too but haven't gotten around to going as much as I'd like. I'm not sure of the best way to meet other parents. I met some moms through a breastfeeding group that I joined and then through another group I joined through that one.

Thanks. We've been to firefly a couple of times and cosi and the zoo regularly but I haven't really met anyone. People seem to mind their own business.

How old are your children? We are always looking for new play groups with like minded families. We live in the NE area right outside of Columbus. I have a 4 yr old son and one due any day. We are AP, cloth diapering (well for the little one), breast feeding non vaccinating family. smile.gif

10, 8, 21 months and 15 months. Not much overlap there, but all the places mentioned above are great for a variety of ages.

Sprout Soup in Cintonville has a ton of resources and groups that meet up there. Give them a call and ask about the moms group that meets there for play dates. They were very welcoming to me when I was living in Columbus.

EDIT: just discovered the own is expecting and is going to appointment only consults on cloth diapering and babywearing. That said, it can't hurt to get in touch with her to get hooked up with the moms group that used to meet up there! Good luck! If I still lived in C-bus, I would totally hang out with you!

This is a great website for like-minded Columbus mamas, and they have meet ups all the time:
