Thank you very much! Do you mind letting me know how many AP-ish moms are in your group? Also, I checked out your Yahoo group, which is great! If we end up preparing to move there, I will definitely join. Did you know that, currently, any weirdo can view the posts and search them? I just wanted to make sure you know, since it isn't typically obvious to a member, who is already logged into Yahoo when visiting the group.

EWW!!! Thanks for letting me know! I just fixed it too. The archive is only viewable for Members now.

The yahoo groups has 23 members but a couple have moved out of state. There still are quite a few of us who are active though.

I know I don't post here very often, but I thought I'd stop in with a hello and a question.

Our youngest son has been diagnosed with diary, soy and corn allergies. The pediatric dietician suggested goat's milk as an alternative for him. I'm looking for a dairy goat farm that is selling the milk in the area. Does anyone know about one? Thanks!

Hi there!

My family will be moving to Mount Pleasant, MI in a few weeks from Rochester, NY. Anyone able share their knowledge about nursery schools in the area??? My daughter has been a part of a parent cooperative nursery school here and we love it. Hoping to find something similar...learning through play, nature, high parent participation...

Thanks!

Yeah, the dairy allergy is a pain. My middle son had that (allergist says he has outgrown, but we're taking a slow, slow path to reintroduction) and it took a long time to find out what he could and could not eat. Add the soy and corn into the mix and it's a mess!

I have a little boy that comes to my home daycare and has severe milk allergies. He drinks goat's milk, soy butter and goat cheese and yogurt. The milk can be purchased in powder or concentrate or ready mixed at most grocery stores but I know the yogurt and cheese are harder to find, I think Mom buys at a health food store in Mt Pleasent.

It's difficult b/c people just think milk but there is a lot that goes along with milk like whey and dry milk.

Good luck!!

I have several cans of Meyenberg powdered goat milk that I'd like to give to some one(s) who could use it.

Let me know!

Allison, thanks for the offer!

However, after meeting again with the dietician, we're going another route. In doing more research, she found that there is often a cross-contamination or possible similar allergy with the goat's milk. So now we're on a juice w/calcium liquid diet with protien/vitamin suppliments in table foods. It's an interesting learning experience for sure!

There is a ton more calcium in dark leafy greens (think kale, chard, etc) than there is in milk. You could juice it or make yummy green smoothies. Cooking it you lost a lot of the good stuff...

Those greens are always available at Eat Fresh Market in Saginaw.

Eat your greens, people!

Hey Alison, it's great to see you posting here again!

Eat Fresh Market has organic produce and lots of other good stuff, it's a small market on Gratiot in Sheilds. It's just east of the ****** Rd. light, on the north side of the road. (maybe two buildings down from the gas station on the corner.)

Amber (the owner) was part of our co-op but was opening a store, and offered to absorb the co-op. I'm pretty happy with the arrangement so far, because she is ordering for her store, she absorbs a lot of the surplus and we are more likely to get what we want/need. She's really nice too!

Actually I probably could. If you aren't busy tomorrow call me and let me know. I don't think we have to do anything tomorrow except get Ari's glasses (yes we drove all the way to saginaw to find out they'd closed at 1pm) that is how we wound up at Yasmeen's. :

I'm stuck on the sweater and could really use the "knittingerapy" right now.
