There seem to be a good amount of Chicago/Chicago Area moms...just wondering if any of you would like to have a mini tribe <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I am in Chicago in the Uptown Neighborhood. We have lived here for 3 years and love it!

I'd love to...Tara here, from Chicago, Andersonville area. I know we have tried (somewhat unsuccessfully) in the past, but summer is here and I'd love to start a weekly or monthly playgroup. My daughter is seven, much older than I think most of your kids are, but she is definitely the "teacher type" and loves smaller children and babies. I also watch my best friend's 7 month old pretty regularly, so it'd be fun to bring her around other children as well.

I would be up for this at the start of summer (until I have to go back to work)! I live in Uptown so I'm really close! (I actually broke down and went to Ann Sather for brunch yesterday...we walked!)

OK, I could have written this entire post myself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
hi!<br><br>
We live near the Argyle stop in Uptown and love this neighborhood to bits. Alas, we are moving to East Rogers Park but still hope to spend time in Uptown! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Rogers Park here!<br><br>
DS and I would love to be part of a playgroup... Unfortunately, I work on weekday mornings (which keeps us from doing a lot of tot-oriented activities), but we're free weekday afternoons and on the weekends.

Wow -- who knew there would be MDC mamas in good old Rogers Park!?<br><br>
Sorry to hijack the thread - but it caught my eye. My dad lived in Rogers Park (Devon & Ashland) for 30 years and I grew up there part time (shuttled between mom in suburbs and there)<br><br>
Is the Clark-Devon hardware store still there?

Avondale/Logan Square here! I've got a 5 MODS. I'd love to get together. I'm also off until "Back to School" time (I'm a teacher). I usually do baby & me yoga on Fri - noonish and Kindermusic on Sat. morn's but the rest of the week is wide open! I've been meaning to check out some of the meetings at BeBy Baby on Tuesdays, so I guess I'd most be up for M's, W's, or Thur's.<br><br>
Speaking of Uptown, I lived in the outskirts my whole life (actually wrigley - Irving/Clarendon during my youth then Waveland/Pine Grove during my teens/20's) until I bought my first house here in Avondale, so I love the area too!<br><br>
Thanks City Chic for doing this!

Hi, I'm Elisa, mommy to soon-to-be 18 mos old dd. I work full time, so, although I'd love to meet up, it could only be on weekends. We live in Hyde Park.

Yep, it's still there. I actually live about 3 blocks away. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hey! We're in Evanston but that's not far at all... DoulaTara, my DD is 8 and is the exact same way but it would be nice to have another older kid for her to play with too...<br><br>
I work M-F as well, so weekends are best for us. We are open most of May <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

Heya, I live in Chicago as well! We are expecting our first, due in late June. We live in the northern part of Garfield Park, close to Logan Square.

Wow maybe you live in my old house <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I can remember so clearly being handed a list every weekend and my brother and I walking to the Clark-Devon Hardware store, handing the list to the guy, he knew we were Joe's kids so he just put it on my dad's tab, then we brought the hardware needed for the weekend project home to dad, stopping at the park on the corner on the way home.<br><br>
Say hi to the neighborhood for me. I miss our old house, it was very pretty (at least it was to me as a kid)
