I'm moving back to the bay area (flights tomorrow!) and I don't have any friends with kids. Is anyone interested in getting together for a potluck or something in the East Bay? If so post below...

Organic eating, cloth diapering, no vaxing, cosleeping, breastfeeding mean machine.

I'm in the East Bay, also.

But I'm on the other side of the Caldecott on the Concord, Walnut Creek, Clayton border.

I'm trying to initiate a playgroup more local to me, if anyone is interested.

Hi, I would love to know more about mom get- togethers in the east bay as well. I'm 25, 8 months pregnant with my first baby, and have no friends with kids. So if you could let me know about any groups or classes where I might meet other moms, I would really, really appreciate it.

Anyone want to get together this week or next?

We can meet at a park in the Walnut Creek/Concord/Pleasant Hill area...

PM me or post here.

Amgills~Where are you located? Have you been to a LLL meeting yet? That's a great place to meet moms!

I'm up for meeting next week. I was going to suggest it too. Any day but Wednesday is good for me, preferably noon or later bc my little one naps until 11 or 11:30.

I'd love to get together... my little is still really LITTLE, but finding some like-minded mamas in the area would be great.

Hi ladies, I wanted to pop in and say hi. Right now I'm in San Mateo, but it looks like we'll be buying a house in Hayward soonish (like before the tax credit is up.)

There is a bay area attachment parents group on meet-up.com that is having a get-together at Sulphur Creek in Hayward on Friday. I've never actually been to one of their meet-ups, but it seems like a bunch of like-minded folk.

Anyone out there in Hayward?!?!

Welcome to the neighborhood!

I'm in Union City and I'm in that meetup group as well. We missed Sulphur Creek, but we're planning to be at the Newark CC park on the 9th (it's on the calendar) if you want to meet up.

There seem to be a fair number of East Bay MDC mamas, but "East Bay" is pretty vague and commuting is not so fun... There is also a Fremont thread around here somewhere that I am too lazy to find/bump at the moment.

If you go to meet-up.com just search for bay area attachment parents.

nice to know there are some Hayward mommas out there. We just put another offer in today on a different house, and I have a good feeling that we will get this place. The real estate market in Hayward is pretty competitive right now, but since they extended the tax credit we have a bit of time to find the right place.

I'm down in Fremont, but Hayward feels positively close.

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

Ok... I might be a little less internet savvy than I thought but
meet-up.com was a singles networking page, so I figured it was meetup.com, but no bay area attachment parents group came up. Can you or someone send a link??

Thanks!

If you want a nice, quiet park that is awesome for little kids, check out Walden Park in Walnut Creek. It's within walking distance of Pleasant Hill BART, has restrooms, drinking fountains and some nice shade trees. Well maintained play equipment, is right next to both the Iron Horse and Contra Costa Canal trails, and is also a nice place for older kids to ride bikes, scooters or rollerskate/blade. It's on Oak Road between Walden and Jones.

I live in the area, and it's by far my favorite park... no nasty geese and very few obnoxious teenagers. It's very popular with local playgroups.

For anyone looking for a holistic parenting group in the area, I co-lead the East Bay Area Chapter of the Holistic Moms Network. It's a great place to meet other holistic families. You can check us out at www.holisticmoms.org or contact [email protected].

We meet twice a month for meetings, a daytime meeting in Pleasant Hill and an evening meeting in Oakland. We welcome visitors that want to check us before joining so please come to a meeting, if you'd like. Children are welcome.

hey moms
okay, so not sure if anyone is still following this thread, but i did find a little "sit and play" time at the Newark library. here is the description:

For 18-35 month old children, we will have the space, some toys, and the society of other children available to your child. No babysitter is available, this is time for you and your child to socialize. This is a drop-in event, no registration is necessary.

Contact: Kat Blair (510) 795-2627 x23 [email protected]

Location: NEWARK BRANCH - Get Directions

if anyone would like to come, i think i'm going to check it out this friday. PM me if someone will be able to make it!
