Just wanted to say Hi. I don't have little kids anymore, I no longer live on the Island, but I used to!

Grew up in Commack, just off Jericho Tpk. My maternal grandparents and aunt lived in Lindenhurst (aunt still does, she taught hs gym).

Spent a lot of time hanging out in Northport as a teen, had friends in Huntington, Kings Park and St James.

Anybody know the bull statue on Jericho in Smithtown? It is such a nostalgic landmark for me.

Hi aneta, and bu's mama! Ocean vibes! ...Mmm, I can smell the salty air!

Now I live 1 hr from the beach. Not as easy to get to but I still try as often as possible.

Have fun at your little playgroup.

LILove, Daryl

Maybe we can meet sometime before the week ends...
Are any of you going to the La Leche meeting tomorrow?
If so...see you there!

HI mamas! I'm in Cedarhurst, and there's an ap group starting up here in good old mainstream LI! It's right now convening on yahoogroups (AP-LI) and I think we're planning a Wednesday get together!

I could sure use some other AP friends here, it's a tough place to be ap!

I don't know why I don't get all responses in my mailbox....I get some but not others!
Hmmmmmmmm.........
I didn't know about the playdate until Sandy called me. She left a message that she wasn't feeling well and might not make it and Aneta she lost your number. Maybe she did make it.
I didn't get to talk to her since I had a rough week with the baby (she's teething early) and now she's doing her yoga certification.
I hope we meet this week.

Yes, yes, yes, we want to have a playdate. Most likely not today, way too much rain, our street looks like a little river, but it seems that tomorrow will be a nice sunny day. So...anybody up for playdate - tuesday?? 4pm ???
Amy- do you think Snady will have time tomorrow? I will try to give her a call.

Cedarhurst is in the Five Towns, on the far western end of south shore of Long Island (across the Nassau Expwy from Far Rockaway). Right north of Long Beach/Atlantic Beach.

LMK where people are so we can convene!

I think tomorrow is good for us, but my in-laws may take Hannah for the day, so I'll have to see. We can do Thursday or Friday this week also if that's good for anyone.

Gaby'sIma - I met someone at a LLL meeting the other day in Babylon/Lindenhurst who told me about the AP group also but I forgot her name. I tried searching for the yahoo group & couldn't find it - could you post the link?

I'm not avoiding everyone--just been soooo busy and now maybe things will calm down a little (I hope). I can't make it to Venetian Shores today, but will keep trying to find a day when you are all going that we can make it too!

Gaby'sIma--I PM'd you about the APLI thing too--would love to hear more about it, or find out about the yahoo group...let me know when you have a chance. (Edited to add I just found the link above for the yahoo group--sorry)

Now I'm off to get some stuff done while dd naps, for a few more minutes anyhow! Have fun at the park today!

Whoops. guess I missed that one.

Phew. My baby just took her sweet time (1 hr.) nursing to sleep. I thought I was going to lose it! Sometimes I just need a break (I threw my back out last night so my patience isn't what it should be...).

Best!

I threw my back out this weekend, too. This is a first for met--I've never had pain like this before--it's in my left lower back and is killing me, and not going away quickly enough. Pain like this really makes it hard to keep your patience, I agree...

Thanks, ugh, it's still pretty bad. Plus I cracked my keppe (head) on a cabinet when getting up from the dishwasher while making dinner. Very bad scene, baby crying to be held, dd1 whining to "help", mommy feeling like she was going to LOSE it. Then the baby took over an hour to settle down and go to sleep.

UGH!

Sigh. But she's so darn cute and just cuddles into me.

In-laws are coming tomorrow and we are super busy until the middle of next week, but sign me up asap after that! I need some ap real life encouragement!

If you're real close by, we would love a quick playdate at Cedarhurst park or North Woodmere park!

Best, Nicole

OK mamas the weather is a little bit tricky - it's humid, it's sticky, looks like gona rain any minute, but anyway we can't seat in the house . So maybe tomorrow anyone want to join us for some fun at the park??Today was quite windy, we loved it .Most likely we will be there after 4 pm. ( I guess that isn't a surprise).
Nicole- good luck with in-laws, hope to see you after they are gone ( you may need AP support )

Just wondering if any of you mommas have preschool or school aged children who would like to take a tour of the SCPD police station sometime this fall. (I'm HSing my 5 y/o son and have already got some people interested with ages ranging from infant-preteen). Doesn't really matter to me if you HS or not, just thought it'd be an interesting way for the kids to learn and maybe meet some other like-minded moms. I have to let you know tho, since the other moms who're attending are HSing, it'll probably be held on a weekday-so they'd most likely have to miss a day.

I believe the "tourable" (lol, is that a word??) facility is in Yaphank, but I could be wrong....we were gonna maybe bring a picnic lunch, or have lunch somewhere then car pool there, etc (I'm also trying to set something up for those moms who don't drive--so if you're interested, don't let that stop you, just let me know and I'll talk to the other moms).

I just wanted a round-about head count before I scheduled anything, as well as what days/dates are good and which are off limits. (Right now, Monday seems to be the pick).

If you're interested, just post back or PM or email me ([email protected]).

Best Wishes, Kelly

PS-Amy, if you read this, let me know! I called a few times to see how Emerson and Pierre and you all are doing. Email me or something Lady!

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

Heyyyyyyy! It's my doula Kelly (I just e-mailed you)!
I would be interested if Emerson was in a travelling mood, but not sure she is yet. :LOL

How is everyone? I just can't seem to make a playdate. I'll keep trying though.

Aneta - Did we actually pick a day that you weren't at Venetian Shores?! There was a ton of people there today.

It was a beautiful day down there & Hannah had a great time until she cracked her chin on the slide. I nursed her & had one girl there in shock (6 years old I think) 'She's on your ta-tas?!' I guess just doing my bit to educate the masses

How's later in the week for everyone?

I think we're also going to try for Thursday at Belmont.

Gwen- I'm so sorry we didn't make it yesterday. Amelie totally crushed after 2pm and didn't wake up till 5pm. That doesn't happen too often, but the night before she got bitten by mosquitoes or some other creatures, and she didn't get enough sleep. But anyway I was surprise that she took such a long nap.I packed a bag full of snacks, put a stroller ready to go, was waiting by the door for an hour and nothing happened, princess didn't wake up.
We definitely want to meet with you guys some time this week. What about today or friday??Thursday is not good for as, in the afternoon we have a doc appointment for Maya. By the way , I really would love to go to this meeting at Belmont Park, but I don't think that my dh will be around to give me a lift, . Maybe next time I will have more luck.
