Hello,

 

I am new to Hamilton and would love to meet some like-minded parents and kids!  Introduce yourselves please!  And please fill me in on what a newcomer needs to know!

 

A bit about me:  I am a single mom and currently home with my high energy little boy who is 22 months old. 

 

Also, I would really love to find someone to do a childcare trade with, just once a month to give myself some free time!  So if you are interested or know someone who is please let me know!

hi mama! i was just reading your other thread, but didn't type anything, because i don't have the experience with a toddler. i am in burlington-pretty close to hamilton. i have a 6 month old son. i'm american and we're here on a work permit (our second)-working on applying for permanent residency. i lived in burlington before in 2008 for 6 months, but really didn't get out much even then without a baby!

a little about me: i'm 24, married-we're a one car family and hubby takes it to work so getting together might be tougher than it could be if we wanted to meet up. i'd love to get to know you and try to get together!

Hi sorry I forgot to check back here!!

 

I am going to try the eyc tomorrow and see if they have any toddler programs.  I've also joined the y and have been going there a lot to keep myself busy!

 

I was also thinking about going to a LLL meeting.  But haven't made it there yet.

 

Anyway, I would love to meet up with you ladies!!  Any ideas of when/where would be good?

Hi!

I'm in Burlington too.  Single mom to a chatty 3 1/2 year old boy.

Time is tight for me (work + part-time SAHM + school), but would love to try to meet up with all of you sometime!

Hi mamas! I'm in Hamilton too. Gillian, welcome! I go to the morning LLL group. It meets downtown by Victoria Park. I think its the third or fourth Thursday of the month -- msg me if you want more details. Great group (lots of crunchy mamas). I've also found Social Mamas (www.socialmamas.com) to be a great group of really positive, down-to-earth women.

Hello there Hamilton mamas, I'm living in Dundas, just a few minutes away. I have a 3 year old girl and a 4month old baby boy. I've been in Canada nearly 5 years after moving from UK and love it. Just joined here so wanted to say hi :) Finally got to a LLL meeting recently and found it really helpful and encouraging. Think I met you there Tamara?!

Lottie :)

Hi there: Just wanted to say hi. I am not from Hamilton, but my mother and grandmother grew up there until they moved to the US before I was born. I love it there.

Tamara, I'd like info on the LLL as well! I'd like to be a little more prepared this time.

You wouldn't happen to be the daisy days tamara would you? :) I live across the street from little bird.

Hi, everyone! I'm also in Hamilton. I have a 27 month old, an almost 6 year old, and a teenager. Tamara and I organize the Hamilton Babywearers as well, which is a nice way for mammas of babies through preschoolers to get out and meet others interested in babywearing and socialize a bit, if babywearing is an interest. I second the comment about the OEYCs. They're a great resource.
