Hi! I'm new to these boards, and just wondering if there are any other moms in Montgomery County. It's neat to talk to people who live near you!

I am located in the Lansdale area, very close to the Lansdale exit off of the PA turnpike/NE extention. Pottstown is probably about 30-40 minutes from here.

snoodess~ nice to meet a fellow Montgomery County resident! I am very familar with K of P. My dh works in Malvern, and we often meet for lunch around there. Plus, I used to live in Norristown which is very close. I hope you weather the coming storm ok. It's pretty cool that our kids are only 2 days apart.

Hi all,

I just found out I may be moving to the Philly area and we like the housing and housing prices that are available in Lansdale - what is it like as a community? Are there younger families? From the Lansdale website, it looks like a good community... what do you like about it, and what don't you like? Is it pretty walkable, or are there areas that are not as safe?

And is there a grocery store in the downtown area or close by?

We live in Baltimore now, so we're familiar with city neighborhoods and the pros and cons.

Thanks for any info. And if we end up moving, hopefully we can meet up.

I have a step-daughter now, and dh and I will probably start TTC around when we move - sometime in the spring, if it happens. Any good midwife recommendations?

Kristin (kofduke)! Too cool you live in Glenside! I had an apt there for a few years, I grew up in North Hills, my parents still live there. DH and I were just at the Blue Comet this weekend! Are you originally from there?

hey all,
we're in kop but are moving to phoenixville sometime late summer or fall.

i'm a part of a mom's group with hannahmom and mcmrymoon - and i'm sure they can back me up that it's a wonderful network we've got going!

very cool that there are so many other mamas in this area who parent naturally.

Hi, all! I'm also in Spring City! Well, actually, East Vincent Township (silly Pennsylvania ways of dividing things up, but we use the Spring City post office, so close enough ) I grew up in Pennsburg, aka Upper Perkiomen Valley, and have always lived nearby. The furthest away I've ever lived was University of Delaware. I also worked for a while in Lansdale, so I'm very familiar with that community, and have friends in Ambler and pretty much all over MontCo.

mcmrymoon, I would definately be interested in a playgroup, if it gets together. This is certainly the season for it - did anybody else get to do some gardening yesterday??

I would also be interested in doing a fabric buying co-op. People discuss them on the sewing and crafts boards, but it's kind of tough to do them with people who aren't geographically close. I am currently interested in buying some organic cotton flannel for making diapers. Here's what I've found: http://mars.pics.net/cgi-bin/miva?~c...+H6310000+path The price is very good, but the extra discount for buying in bulk would be even better!

No - I grew up in the NE corner of PA. I moved here with my DH!

I've never been to the blue comet - any good?

We go to Pediatric Medical Associates (usually see Dr. Goldstein, but sometimes the others), across from Whole Foods. We like them a lot- they haven't blinked an eye about my still nursing DS, love his cloth diapers, share concerns about too many antibiotics (but will still prescribe them when they are warranted), etc. Big into vaccines, if that's a concern for you (we've chosen to vax), but I think most peds are.

I've also heard good things about Maria Mahoney at Pediatric Care Group. We were thinking about switching to her, but there was no good reason to leave our practice.

Not in Montgomery County, but close enough - we live in the West Mount Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia. We have a 4 year old son.

Hi,
I am in Norristown. My daughter is almost 16 months old. Anyone know of any local playgroups that meet about once a week?

Hi, Michelle! Check out www.circleoffamilies.org - we've got quite an active and dynamic group of AP/NFL Moms in the area. We do hold regular playgroups. And you're pretty much dead center geographically for our group

Thanks! I just registered but then I realized that you have to pay dues in order to fully join the group. We can't afford anything extra at this point but maybe once we are back on our feet we will be able to join. It looks like a nice community.
