It's hard to get doctor req's, arrange playdates etc. because there are so few people around here on mothering.com. Hello from Northern MN!

Mommy to THREE sweet boys & ONE sweet girl + a newb due in February!  I need a nap.

Me!!! I'm way up north too, but not as far as you. I'm about 1/2 way between Grand Rapids and Int'l Falls.

So, HI!! It can be pretty lonely around here, since everything is so spread out, and there's not all these fun places to go.

I just moved back here (my hometown) from Fargo so it's a lot different. Though, I hated Fargo so I shouldn't complain. I was born for small town living.

I went to school in Duluth. When I was pregnant with my DS I ate at Sammy's in Duluth every day seemed like. There was one just down the block from my house. (East side, is that the one you live by double dutch? N 47th Ave E) That and Pizza Luce! Wow, I'm super hungry now.

I grew up in Grand Rapids. I miss it! I also lived for 5ish years in St. Paul, and a year or so in Duluth/Cloquet too.

Hi there - i'm planning on moving back to MN in july. to big lake specifically.
i'm feeling a bit of angst about it since I love living in Portland - but sine i've recently gotten divorced.... living with my family to re adjust for a bit seems like the best plan. I have 3 little ones - 5 1/2, 3 1/2 and 20 mo... so if theres anyone near that area I'd love to be in contact this summer.

I'm just north of St Cloud, and just south of Brainerd!!! Hey MN mommies!


If evil means to be self-motivated, to be the center of one’s own universe, to live on one’s own terms, then every artist, every thinker, every original mind, is evil. Because we dare to look through our own eyes rather than mouth clichés lent us from the so-called Fathers…three cheers for Eve. -...
