Are there any started? If not, can we please start one? I have an (almost) 2 year old daughter and I'm 7 months along with a son. I need children for my dd to interact with and I DESPERATELY need adult interaction with people who have similar lifestyles (which I can safely assume would be met here since we all read Mothering). I wouldn't mind hosting at my house and then maybe we can switch it up and meet at others?

my kids are older, 6 and 11, but i too am dying for some interaction! my youngest is on the spectrum so he is a little young for 6 and would prolly really enjoy your dsughters company as well as a baby i always thought thier birth order was mixed cuz my baby is such a good "big brother" type.

Bumping. I really need some adult interaction and I just moved to the Draper area. I wouldn't mind hosting at my house or a park either.

I could also use some adult interaction, besides that of my fiance. I have a three year old little boy, who is very social and loves to play with all kids no matter thier age. I live in West Vally City.

Hi!
Im in the millcreek area (southeast salt lake city) I have a 3.5 year old boy and a 4.5 month old baby boy. I'm afraid we haven't done a lot of playing with others since the baby was born and we both need it!!

Wow, sounds like there are a few interested parties with kids around the same age. Looks like we live pretty far apart. Could we meet in a central location? What days and times work well for everyone? I like Fri mornings, but am free every other day but Tue.

A play group would be awesome! I have a 2 1/2 year old ds and a 1 month old dd and we live in Murray.

I think Murray/Midvale would be a good middle ground. How about Murray park at 10:30 AM on Friday, the 18th?

I hope some more people can make it, but I wouldn't be disappointed if it was just the two of us. Is that okay for you?

I had to make an appointment with our CPA on Friday at 9:30!! =(
We handed in our taxes 4 MONTHS AGO and they are still NOT DONE!!
So i finally got a hold of him and the only time available for an appointment was Friday.
SORRY!!!
I figured if I went and sat right in front of him and watch him do it, it will get done. grrrrrrrrrrr

sorry ladies.

I'll be there for sure. My 2.5yo will love to play, friends or no. xbabymax, sorry about the taxes. I hate that too! We'll probably be there for a while, so if your head isn't spinning when you're done, you can come join us.

Yeah, we'll be near the playground, although I suspect we won't stay there long. My DS loves to roam the free space at the park. He's not much for the equipment. We'll stay there til we find you!

Yeah me too. I got somethings to babyproof my house. My son is almost crawling anyway, but if we all know where Murray Park is we could all meet there as well, I don't care either way. I just hope more people come.

We're up for park playdates at 10:30 on Fridays. That will work great because my toddler can play. Hope more people can come this Friday.

Hey we're also up for park playdates on Fridays at ten thirty. Sorry we couldn't come today, I've got a nasty cold and I'm trying to do everything I can so my baby doesn't get it. Today is pretty chilli but I hope next week we have better weather, hopefully I'll be better by then. Anyway did anyone go today?

Sorry I haven't responded!

I gave birth to my little man last week and things were hectic leading up to that. I'm still very much interested in the playgroup...I do think it is a bit cold outside to meet at the parks (what is it with UT weather going from hot to cold with no "in-between" days?!?!?!). I could host a playdate at my house Friday mornings or Saturday mornings...I live off of 1300 South and 1000 West...

I have a 20 month old who needs to have interaction with other kids, so I'd be interested in playgroups. I could also host but I don't have a lot of seating, so we'd probably be sitting on the floor. I also have cats as a warning to anyone with allergies.

We live in a townhouse on the point of the mountain in Draper so we're about as far south as you can get in Salt Lake County though, kind of out of the way unfortunately. It IS getting colder so parks are going to be out soon, but we could always meet up at indoor play areas in a more central location.

We can play any day except Thursdays
