We're in Cranston. Just me, the DH and the bambina (6.5 months). I know a couple of people on this forum from other 'activities' and I ONCE made it to playgroup but haven't gotten my act together to go back.

You must live really close to me. I'm about a mile around the block (well, as around the block as you can get for our area) from the Sterling post office and the playground.

Hi Leslie and Joanna!

I'm a SAHM to dd1 who is 6 and dd2 who is 2.

hi! haven't been on here much these days although I know some MDC Mamas from different get togethers. My husband and I live in North Kingstown RI and have a dd who is almost 2 1/2 and a baby due in Dec. Have been meaning to go to one of the PVD groups for like a year but have yet to go! (Its been a rough winter...oh wait its July, it feels like a beautiful Spring day today. You know its bad when yesterday my dd said "Mama, its beautiful out today, it must be almost summer!")

Awwwwwwww, that's so true--bad sad at the same time...I LOVE summer, usually and so far it definately is feeling more like spring or fall. : Maybe we'll get a super long indian summer

Ok, now my turn! I live in Exeter, RI over the N. Kingstown line and have a son that will be 3 this month and am currently : with our 2nd!! I'm so glad I found this site, I've loved everything I've gotten to read so far and for the all the help that I've already gotten!!! A huge THANKS to all!!

Hi - We are in Tiverton, RI. There is me, DH, DS Sam 2 and DD Anika tbd but any day now! We go to the RI PVD playgroup very frequently - I'm the one who shows up in my husband's pajamas because I am too cheap to buy maternity clothes.

We live in Providence. Dh and I and ds#1 age 5, ds #2, age 2 and soon another one....hopefully very soon

I'm a sahm for now. Really enjoy the alternative medicine, homebirth/ natural birth, environmentally friendly and healthy foods aspects of natural family living. Also enjoy all the support for breastfeeding, babywearing and co sleeping which we practice as well.
we do the playgroup here and love it for all the great conversations and support for the natural parenting approach!
We've been in RI for almost 5 years now and for the most part really like it.

I'm in Warwick, RI over by CCRI. I'm a single mom to three daughters, ages (next week) 9, 4 1/2, and 18months. I grew up in RI and moved away for a few years and we've been back now for almost 3 years. Great place to grow up!!!! Can't wait for consistent good weather so we can hit the beach and playgroups.

Hello!

I'm Angela, and I live on the west side of Providence with my DD, Ocean, who will be 1 next month(!?!), and my DP, Jack. We're both grad students at Brown, working on dissertations, teaching, and parenting. We're also a queer family, and have been really thrilled about awesome and welcoming the MDC playgroup (and MDC in general) has been for us. I haven't made it to playgroup lately because I teach every morning right now, but am looking forward to having Thursdays off this fall and hopefully rejoining the group.

A, partner to J, mama to O, now with a new username!

Building queer family since 2008!

(and oh, did i mention we're having twins?!?)

Hi!

We are Mass transplants, working our way down south, hopefully VA! For now, I live in Pawtucket with my DH and our son, almost 3.5 yrs and we are expecting a new little poppet the beginning of September. We go to the PVD playgroup almost every week and LOVE it! I don't know what I would do without those fantastic mamas!
I'm a SAHM that also does freelance artwork, though I have been um, taking some time off....for almost a year!

Hi!! I live down on "the island"...as my mom likes to say (Middletown) with my husband and our 3 children (dd-7, dd-4, and ds-16 months). We homeschool, so that seems to keep us fairly busy with homeschool activities down here.

I have been absolutelty LOVING our weather lately. I know it doesn't feel like summer....but give me mid-70's, sunny, low-humidity over 80's, high-humidity any day. Sometimes I do wish it was a little warmer for swimming though. My oldest spent almost 2 hours happily swimming at the beach with her friends the other day......while the adults were all huddled on the sand in sweatshirts.

Hey Jeanette!
I'm glad you found the momma's. With my bizarre instructions at the park the other day. I'm hoping to make it to the playgroup tomorrow with Alexis. If only to see what the surprise is. Plus I'm feeling like I'm neglecting the nice weather by working so much.

Hi there,

I'm down here in Wakefield, RI with my beautiful, wild, sweet pack of 3 (soon to be 4) boyos and one happy, funny and bold girl.

We moved back to RI last year after 4 years in Moscow and 4 years in NYC.

Thanks for this thread. It's great to see so many of us about........

How did you pass this rainy Tuesday?

Happy mom to DS2000, DS2002, DD2004, DS2006 and DS 10/2009:

Shannon- we sure hope you all can come back again

Justmama- unfortunately there isn't an "address" for humboldt park, it's in "blackstone" on the curve of Humbold Ave. just before Elton St. Humbolt runs into Irving Ave. If you look at a map of Providence, Humboldt is left of Blackstone Park, Lincoln School, and Orchard Place/Ave. Where are you coming from again? That would help with directions

Edited to add- From warwick you could take Gano exit(is that right ladies?) go north on Gano until you see Humboldt Ave on your right, follow humboldt untill you see the park on your right, parking on the street
