<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> I'm Here! Rachel, SAHM to Lily (17 months).<br><br>
We live in Snow Hill, but are often in the Salisbury area at the library, health food store, Ben's Red Swings (DD is crazy about swings right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">), NINO Delmarva meetings (trying to set up monthly ones! Woohoo!).<br><br>
At home, we're likely to be baking, gardening, playing in the yard, or washing diapers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">.<br><br>
I know there are lots (ok, well maybe not <i>lots</i>) of Eastern Shore mamas here! Maybe we can have a monthly chat thread here on FYT as well as meeting up in person? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Sounds wonderful <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I need to meet someone else who washes diapers and goes to the HFS <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:....BTW which one do you go to?<br><br>
I like the one by the College...Health Store and More? I think....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
We like BRS, have you been to the Boundless Playground off RT 50?<br><br>
Love it! You can see the entire playground no matter where ya are. My big boy doesn't like to stay with the babies, so he likes to head off and play with the bigger kids...I like to see him too ya know?<br><br>
Should we just keep a thread "inside" this tribal area? If not it might get lost <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

yeah, we like Health Store & More (used to be over on Mt. Hermon, but I guess they bought out the current owners at Healthful Habits on College Ave....?).<br><br>
Tell me more about the boundless playground, please! I'd love to have another option. We've had a few instances where DD gets out of my sight and 'loses' me. I try to let her explore on her own as much as possible, so keeping her in sight without hovering would be GREAT.<br><br>
I'm up for chatting here in our tribal area. Don't wanna get lost in big ol' mdc. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I don't know how to explain, but if you are headed south on RT 13 after PRMC, there is a left turn at the Dover Downs blillboard that would put you back on rt 50 business...(I'm pretty sure...I'm not from Salisbury...so I could be mistaken, but I think I'm right <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> )<br>
Anyhow when you make that turn, it's on the right. There is a gate to keep the kids off the road. There is a soft area for babies and sand and big kids stuff too.<br>
Also a shaded area (gazeebo type thing) Over all it's very clean and a well laid out playground. No potties though, but we have a portable in the van. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
We should get together and picnic<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Hi I'm Megan<br>
I'm a WOHM live in Quantico, work in Cambridge. DD is in daycare PT and DH is a SAHD (long story how dd ended up in dc with dh home). Baby is due soon so DH will have lots to do at home.<br>
I've always wanted to get him together with you ladies for play dates. Maybe I'll take off a half a day here soon and we'll all three come out.<br>
DH and DD go to BRS and the Zoo once a week just about and then they usually pick one other place to go. Chuck e cheese or mini golf the boardwalk whatever strikes them and of course the monthly trips up to Yoders <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I am always looking for women on the shore who are willing to help with efforts to reverse the ban on VBACs at Memorial Hospital at Easton. The ban at Frederick Memorial WAS successfully reversed last August so it is possible to do. Anyone interested send me a p.m. Thanks.<br><br>

Oh, and I'm washing diapers too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Hello! I am from Easton, I just posted on the roll-call forum and then read this, duh! I am so glad to be reading these posts, sometimes I think I'm all alone out here! I work very part time at Easton Memorial, and yes I agree with your reverse on VBAC's, but I come from Baltimore, so the hospital seems to do a lot of things backwards to me... Otherwise I SAHM with our ds Logan who is 17mos. My hubby, Steven, is a pest control tech for J.C. Ehrlich (not to be confused with the politician <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ) so if you ever see his blue truck that says "The Bug Stops Here" give him a wave! I laughed so hard when I saw that truck, who would ever put that slogan on there! We try to shop over at Railway, where I worked for a couple of years when I lived here in the late 90's but I'll admit, I can't always afford it! We go to storytime at the library, take classes at the YMCA, walk around the neighborhood and go to the park. Currently, we've been outside as much as possible! It's been so nice, of course except for today... I hope to get my real estate license in May so I can WAHM and sell houses!

I don't think we'll be going...Gearing up to go out of town next week, so I think we'll spend the weekend doing errands and packing...I hope the weather clears for those heading to the festival, though!

Hi! I too used to wash diapers but we are now doing the diaperfree challenge(so I wash pants instead <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">) and it's going very well for us! (we have been ecing since Alex was 2.5 months) Alex, is almost 5 months old, we live in Dagsboro, I work in Salisbury and Alex comes to work with me (and school and lots of other places)! My husband is in the construction business and is an obsessed kite boarder. Alex was born at the Birth Center in Wilmington after I got absolutely scared of the impending birthing at PRMC with a Salisbury OB. What a great decision it was and totally worth the drive! We too try to spend as much time outside as possible. Rachel and everyone else, lets go to Assateague together! We have two dogs that Alex and I walk every day twice and on the weekends we always try to go to the beach, which I love and hope that Alex will too. I have only met two Eastern Shore moms in person at the first NINO meeting (that revolutionized my life!) and can't wait to see more of them and meet more!

hey, mama! Good to see you around here. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
I've gotta get on board with EC-ing next time around. It wasn't even on my radar with L. She's just now showing interest in the potty, and I can see where it would be a much more natural transistion with EC....<br><br>
Assateague sounds great. I don't think we'll be back from our trip to the Western shore in time for next weekend. But soon! Now that I've found success with a back carry in the mei tai, I'm loving long-ish walks babywearing. I'm on the hunt for a wrap, too, though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> If I can master a rucksack with a supportive wrap, I'll be in heaven....<br><br>
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!<br><br>

How about Assateague next weekend? I too am dying to learn back carries with the wrap... I am so far just using the front cross carry - all I learned how to do! We are going to the bay side near Dewey right now. My husband is kite boarding there. Yesterday we did baby yoga practically on the beach (on the balcony facing the ocean) and walked near Bethany! I love this weather!

Hello again! I have heard good things about the mommy ward there, too and I finally got in with dr. liu who is sooooo great. If I hadn't gotten in with her, I was just going to go back up to St. Joesph's in Towson (when I got pregnant again) where I had my ds with my mw (we just moved here a year ago). What mw do you have here? Penny?<br><br>
And Megan W - I have heard all about the market, my parents just sold their house, oh the drama! Well, for now I'll just have my license and when the market turns around... Until then, I have the ER at the hospital for a little cash. I am just soooo done with working in the medical field! When I tell people at work that logan wears cloth they look at me like I"m insane!

Wow, being a Realtor is going to be a popular profession in our little group; that's what I do too!<br><br>
We're out of town next weekend so we can't do Assateague, but definitely some other time, it's <10 minutes down the road from us!

I don't want to commit to Assateague this coming weekend, since I'm not sure when we'll be back from Baltimore. The following weekend is busy, too, with Mother's Day and all....But let's try to get there before the tourists invade us for the season!

Hi everyone!<br>
I'm going to be relocating to Rehoboth this summer and would love to meet up with any and all of you! Right now I'm traveling back and forth before it's official and not really sure of my schedule.<br>
Is there anyone kinda close to Rehoboth? Sounds like a lot are in or near Salisbury, although, I'm not too familiar with the smaller towns around the area.<br>
I'm so grateful for MDC FYT! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm about 20 minutes outside of Salisbury...guessing it's almost an hour to Rehoboth for me now. Used to pop over there all the time for day trips when I lived in OC and Berlin--shopping downtown, lunch at the Thai place (mmmm....), strolling the boards...Now, it's just too far to go very often <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> (I have a toddler who hates the car).<br><br>
Hopefully we can meet up, though. Summer will be hard with traffic (I'm just a wimp, though. Can't deal with beach traffic. Too many years of living and working in OC, I guess. Or I'm just getting old and cranky <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> )<br><br>
I'm grateful for FYT, too. Don't think I'd have made any mama friends, otherwise. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">
