I can't remember how far away Adrian is. Like-minded people are just as good as like-minded mamas! It looks like you are in pre-mama mode!

Our family doctor is actually in Grass Lake! Where are you from originally? How old are your kids? I have a 7 year old daughter and a 2 year old son.

I'm from Lenawee County originally....not terribly far, but just far enough away to not know anyone to hang out with. My kids are almost 3 (son) and 13 months (daughter).

We go to the Grass Lake Medical Center and I see Dr. Mark Leventer. Although I've also seen the N.P. Dianna Parks and she is wonderful. My 2 yo son wanted to nurse during an appointment and I was trying to disuade him. She told me to go ahead and nurse him b/c that would make him happier and more comfortable there! They are also very willing to work w/you about vaccinations. We don't vax and haven't had any problems. They lean to the natural.

I have a chiropractor and a dentist, but they are both in Jackson, so I don't know if that would help.

I haven't. Which one to you go to? And at what time? I might be able to make it.

I haven't been yet, but I believe it's a fairly small group.

I didn't know if you were still here! Glad to "see" you! We're going to have to get together. We actually moved from Spring Arbor and live in Jackson now.

I'm sorry I didn't make it tonight. Things didn't go as planned.

It looks like there are enough of us out here for us to have a fun get-together some time! I'd love to meet some like-minded mamas and I know my kids are always up for some new friends too!

That would be great! I need to make some friends in the area so I don't go completely stir crazy this winter with 2 toddlers.

If the weather continues to be nice, we could meet at Cascades park in Jackson. Or if it turns bad before we can meet, we could go to Chelsea Treehouse in Chelsea. What do you all think? Is there a good time for everyone?

That sounds good to me, although I've never been to either place. Any day is good except this Friday and late morning would probably work best for us.

I love the Chelsea Treehouse! It's great for when it's too cold to venture outside. Of course we live right outside Chelsea and my daughter goes to Chelsea schools so I'm partial, lol. My in-laws live just down from Cascades so I know that area pretty good as well. Either place would work great for us!

Hi! I just wanted to say hi and I'm not far from Jackson! I'm in Marshall... about 35 minutes west!
Has anyone been to tree of life (I think that's the name) in Chelsea, where they have bellydancing classes?
I've been twice, it was a blast!

Hi Jen! I took my daughter to classes at the Tree of Life studio. She just took a generic dance class but they do have some fun ones. It's so beautiful there! I wanted to take the belly dancing classes but I never seem to have the time. I suppose maybe I should make some "me time" and finally do it, lol. It's nice to "meet" you!

I think the weather is supposed to be nice next week. Is there a day that works for everybody? Should we plan to meet at the park?? I think pretty much any day is good for me next week.
