What's your favorite holistic place in your area? (restaraunt, other business, etc). We are at Honest Weight Food Coop usually at least once a day. Some days it is *a lot* more than that. Thatcher Park also rocks.
B and I were hiking in Thacher Park three weeks ago. It's AWESOME, and I got great photos. (And we stopped at Toll Gate Ice Cream afterward!)

Ooooh, I highly recommend the ice cream.  It is homemade and soooooooooo good.

Just outside Albany

12, almost 6

It's been 13+ yrs since I joined MDC (don't ask, don't tell?!) and I can't honestly remember how I found it!

I know a few, would be happy to meet others!

I don't play favorites - I like to shop, eat, and goof around.  :D

 

Charlie's Angel - a school district has the right to refuse a child entrance to their schools w/out vaxes IF they feel your letter of exemption is not valid/true.  They do potentially open themselves up to a lawsuit, so most don't give much hassle.  I can email you our letter if you'd like.  It's worked for 8 yrs running for us, though currently both kids are in private.  It will work for our public schools too, though.

Hysterical!  We live not far from there, but have only been once.  I didn't love the place, kind of beat up, but my dh loved their ice cream!  lol!  I'm dairy free anyway, so maybe that had some influence?!

Albany area Mamas:

 

It seems many of us are interested in meeting other MDC Mamas.  Is anybody interested in scheduling a monthly meet up?  We could try for January for our first.  If you're interested PM me (or post here) with your ideas on where we could all meet.

Does anyone have a pediatrician or famiy doc they would recommend in the Syracuse (preferably north)/Auburn/Cato area? We need someone who is respectful towards parental rights to choose what they want for their kids (ex: vaccines). I have been through 2 already and just tried a new one yesterday where I was told parents are required to follow normal schedule for vaccines otherwise you are being unsafe and dangerous. They right-out refused to take my daughter as a patient, which I was not informed of when I inquired on the phone nor would I want to go there after hearing their response to me. I am just so frustrated of being on this search for a good dr and feeling knocked down as being a "bad parent" for selectively and delaying vaccines. Can someone please help me?

browneye, We go to a large practice called CNY Family Care. We've seen Karen Beckman and Robert Steves and while they didn't support not vaccinating, they didn't give me a hard time about it either.

Thank you, I will keep them in mind. It looks like that office is over an hour from me, I would really like to find someone closer. Thank you though!

Just wanted to post an update in case anyone else is looking for a dr in my area. Dr. Eppilito in Cato does not harass for not vaccinating AND supports home birth! Now, I did get the usual encouragement to research and consider doing more vaccines, but in no way was harassed for my choice to not. He sees a lot of Mennonite families which I think has an influence on that.

What town are you in? Hurleyville, Sullivan County (near Monticello and Liberty)
How old are your kids? 16 month old daughter and one due in April!

How did you find MDC? The print magazine.
Are you interested in meeting other MDC moms? YES!!!!
What's your favorite holistic place in your area? Our area sadly does not have a lot to offer, which surprised me since we are 15 minutes from Bethel (Woodstock!). I guess I was under the impression that some of that '69 mentality was still around in these parts, but I was wrong. However there is a local farm market (Liberty Farm Market) that is also an "Oriental" grocer...they have tons of fresh, local organic produce and holistic goods.

WHEEEEE, it's Phathui!  OK, you posted this a year ago.  But I haven't seen any recent calls for it, so what the heck.  I can reply, too :)

 

I'm in Kingston NY

My kids are 12, 9, 5 and 3 in a few days.  I know, how'd that happen?!? 

I can't remember, it's been too many years.

Always happy to meet MDC moms.

You'd think that this close to Woodstock, it would be easy.... but I'm at a loss for ANYTHING that qualifies.   Pretty grim.

Are you guys familiar with Kingston Natural Foods Market?  It's very new, down by the Rondout. They're a buying club, so you can get close to coop prices, but they also have storefront with some basics if you run out midmonth.  They're one of, if not THE, biggest buying clubs on the East coast, so they get good discounts.  The discount is smaller than HWFC's weekly member rates, but that's not matched ANYWHERE else that I've heard of.  They place two orders a month, too, so you don't ever need to wait long to order.
