Hey mamas - anyone interested in getting together tomorrow (Tuesday)?

I also keep meaning to ask...do any of you use the disposable Kushies liners? We never quite got into using them & I have about a half a roll left. Let me know if you want them!


Elizabeth - I just pm'ed you.

Hello all!
Hope to see all of you tomorrow if it's still on and all goes well for us.
We're over our colds finally!

Kelly, I just checked my cell now that I saw your post and found a message from you !
I don't know why I have the thing (well, OK I have it for emergencies).......We've been sick for two weeks and it's been sitting unchecked and turned off in my purse! As for the message at home I can only say hmmmmmmm until morning because I didn't have any message and I'm pretty sure that means someone played back the answering machine or took a message w/out telling me.
How are you feeling? I hope all is well with you and DeVante.
You should come out if you're up to a playdate but aside from that we have to get together.

I don't know if everyone knows or not but.......Kelly was my doula and a WONDERFUL doula at that! I just thought I'd mention it since there are a few of us having babies and newly preggo. She was there for me throughout my pregnancy, during the birth and she still remains a friend to this day.
Shameless plug for Kelly over (sorry Kelly I hope you don't mind).......if anyone would like info lmk.

Welcome Igirsky, My2Sunshines, Nancy and Kirai......hopefully I didn't miss anyone!

Igirsky: I tried going to the Unitarian church in Huntington a few times but for now it's too far of a hike on Sunday mornings! Do you know of it?

Nancy: I love Cutchogue! My grandparents used to live on Pequash avenue right by the little beach. It's so peaceful there and brings back a lot of happy memories for me. Are you near there?

Kira: Emerson and I walk every day rain or shine but it seems like such a far drive for you with a 5 week old. Congrats by the way!

My2Sunshines: I don't live near Southhampton but my husband may work this summer again as the exec chef at "The Farmhouse" restaurant in East Hampton. I don't get to visit him much but if I did we could meet up beforehand or something.

I also meant to say CONGRATULATIONS Elizabeth! If I don't see you tomorrow I hope you're feeling great!

Hey Gwen!

I just emptied it. It's amazing how fast that happens...

BTW, if those Kushies are still available, I'll take em! I LOVE liners!

Also, I wanted to mention that we'd love to get together today. My friend and her twin boys (just turned 2) are coming to visit for a few days, and they should be here by then, so I'd bring them if it's ok? She's an MDC mama too! Are we doing it at your house, Gwen? Arjun has been napping right around 2 these days, so we'll see.

Amy, Really? Where do you live? I drive all over the place. How long / far do you walk, usually? Do you use a stroller or the sling?

I see there are a few more mammas from out east now! I'd love to get together. I'm planning to go to the Riverhead LLL meeting on the 4th at the library in case anyone's interested.
Wish we were a little closer to all the fun!
ETA: If anyone homeschools- I have an L.L. Weans gift certificate that I got as a gift when I finished my masters in education. I can't see myself making it all the way up the island very soon. PM me if you're interested.

I can't do it in our house today...,but i'm open for tomorrow or thursday , if that's good with your mamas.Would be great to meet you again.

Sorry I couldn't get back sooner. Today is no good for us. My husband is off this week so any type of schedule I had is out the window . I can do Thursday at my house, around 2 pm. How does that sound?

Aneta - how scary! I'm glad you are feeling better though.

We will come if Arjun takes a nap on time and it doesn't start to snow. Gurmeet took my car to work since his car is no good in the snow, so I'm stuck with his. It's not looking good, but if the stars align just right.... maybe we'll be there.

I'm not sure where that church is, we're Jewish. Is it a service or a playgroup thing?

Hello All. Been busy since I last checked in here! We've been down with some kind of cold bug and boy is it yucky.

Anyway, brigamama, Clark and I are planning on being at the Riverhead LLL meeting as well, so let's make sure to find one another.

Maybe we should start hosting a far east play date each week?

Hope everyone is well!

Oh good, Ashley! I have to get the details. I know where the library is, but am unsure of the time. I think a friend will be going as well.

I know people who live on Pequash right near the beach. It's turned into such a busy street with the beach traffic. The whole area has probably changed since you used to visit. The north fork has unfortunately been "discovered".

Hey ladies.

My kitty (who was rescued from a kill-pound the day before she was to be euthanized while she was the equivalent of 8 and a half months pregnant ) gave birth to 6 kitties on Jan 30th. Anyone want one (or two?) ? They are mostly boys (cheaper to neuter than to spay ), and SO fluffy! They look like little gray/black/white fluff balls. There's also two mostly white with some black and brown markings on their faces, who are not so fluffy.

They're 90% weaned, so they should be ready for a new home in the next 2-3 weeks. They eat regular kitten chow, sometimes mixed with a little canned food. They're learning to be paper trained (can't fit into our large litter box so well yet). I'd definately be willing to adopt out a sibling group. We're keeping one, and my mother is taking one, but the other 4 need homes!

I wouldn't ask any of you for any money, and I'd rather give them to an MDC family, rather than take an ad out in the Pennysaver (I've heard that some people respond to those ads and use the kitties for bait to train attack dogs!). And they really are sweet little guys...very playful and affectionate. I just unfortunately cannot have 7 cats in a one bedroom apartment, for reasons that you can imagine.

If any of you (or anyone you know) would like to have one of these lovies--or even just stop by, meet them and see what you think--PM me. (I'm also working on getting pics, so if you're interested, let me know)

*Oh, also, a family member of mine just bought her daughter a teddybear hamster, and 4 days later it gave birth to 13 (!) babies. No one even knew it was pregnant. She cannot keep them all and is giving them away, but asking for a $10 donation(to cover $ she's lost in food and pet supplies), when they usually go for up to $30 in the stores. Teddybear hamsters are very gentle in nature, make great 1st pets and most are a chocolate brown, but there are also 2 cow-spotted ones. PM me if you're interested in them.

Sorry to interrupt the chat guys, but like I said, I have nothing to do with these babies, and I'd hate to think of them not being in a safe home. Thanks a lot!

best wishes,
Kelly

Kelly, mama (12yoDS), doula, RN, and writer.
There's no where you can be that isn't where you were meant to be, its easy

Kelly- i wish i could take a kitty or teddybear hamster...but my ds said "NO WAY" ...Maybe we can do it in a few years when Amelie is older, so she can take care of it...Well good luck with finding home for little ones.
And now to all LIMamas - the playdate question...I guess it's a good time to have a little get together, maybe this time it wan't snow or rain SO what about tomorrow( tuesday) at 2pm, at Amelie and Maya's Place ?
Hope to see you soon.

Congratulations on the new baby!

We're off on another jaunt and won't return until after Easter. Hope everyone has fun!

I need to get my posts up so I can do some trading at the Trading Post, so I might start posting the same amount of info, just in more posts. Hmmm...hope no one minds.
