This is such a helpful thread, thanks for taking the time to post all the links


I was wondering...which of you goes to any of these? I am planning on going to some meetings coming up but it would be nice to 'know' of others who go or which one to start at. I guess I will probably end up trying a lot of them and seeing what I like, but I would like to be familiar with someone at the meetings.


So, which meetings do you go to?
Specifically, does anyone go to the EC/Diaperfreebaby meetings?

Hi there...
I see no one has answered your post...so I'll start


I lead the NINO group, which meets this coming Tue. I'd love to meet you! I am also a co-leader of the Holistic Moms Network...so I attend that of course. I attend all of the other groups...some more often than others. You'll find that there is a core group of mamas who go to all of these groups...and many that drift in and out, picking and choosing what group works best for them.

Please feel free to PM or email me with any other questions...we'd love to have you join us at any of these meetings!

Thanks for your reply, delight! I plan on coming to the NINO meeting tomorrow morning (I'm assuming its at 10 at the church you mentioned in your previous post). I've just got to wrangle the car from dh
I am so excited and I look forward to meeting you in person, along with some other cool moms, I'm sure!

Hi,

Ellesmama, I'm new to DSM and have been going to the HMN playgroups on Fridays. Maybe I'll see you there! Delight is often there, too ... and lots of other great mamas. I know at least one of theh HMN moms does EC and goes to meetings ....

BTW/OT: Delight -- sorry I didn't make it to Thai food weeks ago after the park .... ds/Wyatt wanted to stay and stay, we didn't get in the car until 1:45. Bummer, cause I was hungry, but fun to play a while. AND -- great little piece in the register yesterday! DH was like, do you know her??

: Babe woke up w/her first fever and vomitting this morning at 3. Poor girl, needless to say, I didn't get to make it to the NINO meeting. I am really disappointed about that, but now, I'll just have to go to another one. Maybe I will show up at the HMN playgroup on Friday, if I figure out where it is at. Thanks for responding, rainy, I hope to meet you soon. Maybe this Friday? That is, if no one in the house is
