Hi guys, I'm Ashley - 24 yr old mom of two kids, a 4 yr old and nearly 4 month old, both born at home. I'm here in seek of a playgroup or group of moms who get together occassionally in RI or MA. I have literally NO friends nearby and I'd love to get my kids involved with other children. My 4 yr old has spent most of her life around adults only. I've been cautious to enter other playgroups because it's hard to find likeminded mothers - most look at me like I have 3 heads when I tell them I've had homebirths :P. And having to excuse myself often to nurse my baby is awkward considering some women find it "rude" or offensive... I'm considering homeschooling also. I'd love to surround myself with mothers I can easily relate to :) Reply here or I can link to facebook! :)

Hello and welcome to Mothering! I'll bump your thread up in the hopes you get some responses, but please come and check out our other forums - you can surround yourself with mothers you can relate to here, and you might even meet some other moms from that area in one of our other forums, such as our homeschooling forum, since you're interested in homeschooling. http://www.mothering.com/community/f/50/learning-at-home-and-beyond

Check in with meet up.com they have some AP parent groups that might fill the void.  Good luck!

Hey!!! You're not alone! Check out Natural Families RI on meetup.com. There are so many wonderful and "crunchy" families on there. Many events happenin RI but there's quite a few mamas from CT too. :-)

HOw far in MA can you travel too.  I'm on the South Shore, but I do have some moms on my list from the RI area.  I know they have some of the same concerns.  
Let me put a shout out to a mom on Facebook and see if there are any newer RI group gathering.

Hi! I'm Nicole and we have two boys. Keegan age 3 and Konner 18 months. We are currently living in TN but will be moving back to RI (Smithfield) in the next year. I'd love to meetup then. I really have no friends back there since its been so long since we've been in our hometown. And in case it matters I'm 29. =)

I know this post is from a while back but we just moved back to Cumberland from Louisiana before my son, now 5 months, was born. I would love to get together with anyone interested! I dont have a Facebook and haven't had much luck with MeetUp.

Hi Stephanie, 

I think we might be a bit far from each other for a playdate :( I hope you find some moms in your area.

Hi all! I know this is old but thought I would reply! I am in cumberland! Have three boys ages 6, 4 and 20 mos. Will be homeschooling the four year old for the 2014-2015 school year and we may pull our oldest to homeschool as well (he currently goes to a charter). Would love to get together with some like minded mamas! smile.gif
