I was just wondering how many mamas would be interested in attending a diaper party in the Tri-Cities. I would love to host, and get to meet more CD moms. Let me know if you would like to come and when a good time would be for you. The only day that I absolutely can't is Oct. 25 (we are having my sons 1st B-day Party!!!). But any other day in October, or if we want to plan in November that would work too.<br><br>
Can't wait to hear from you!!!

YEA!!!<br><br>
I would love to go to a diaper party! I have not met anybody my age that cd's irl! Everybody who I know who cd'ed is older! I have only been cding for 2 months and am totally addicted!<br><br>
I live about 1.5 hours north of tri-cites. I can come almost any day! You might want to just suggest a couple of days that wotk best for you and them let others come to a conclusion of what day would be best.<br><br>
I hope we get some other moms!<br><br>

Hey, I'll come....heck, I'll even bring goodies! LOL We use cloth dipes as back ups for our Elimination Communication. I've got a 9 1/2 month old baby girl who's walking like she was born doin' it. Also have a 2 1/2 year old little boy. Among our diaper stash right now.......lotsa Fuzzi Bunz, hemp inserts, a Cuddle Bunz or two....a couple odds and ends...and a bunch of Cricketts...and of late...PANTIES! Wahhooooo!<br><br>

Woohoo! I just moved to the tricities area (Pasco) 2 weeks ago. I would love to meet some cd'ing mamas! I was very dissapointed to find that there are no LLL groups here- that's how I found all of my friends in my old town.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> My son could use some interaction and I could use some too (love to talk cds)! I'm available just about anytime, considering we don't know a soul!

Welcome Mary! Where'd you move from. We moved from Seattle this summer and really miss it. Did you ahold of the LLL leader for Tri-Cities? She told me the group is on hiatus til the end of the year cuz of lack of interest <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I was really bummed. Anyway....we live between Kennewick and Benton City. I have a 2 1/2 year old little boy and a 10 month old baby girl. Hope to get to meet ya sometime....<br><br>

hi everyone~<br>
I am glad some one wants to come to my party! I can't wait to meet all of you! Ok, so when do we want to have this party? Lisa it is fine to have it another day other then sat. We go to church on sunday, so we should probably have it during the week. I am home all day, every day, so let me know what you ladies would like to do. I am open the rest of the month, oh wait, ds has his 1 yr check up in a couple weeks on a monday. I don't have my calendar in front of me.....but does anyone have any suggestions for what day?

Hi Lisa! We moved from the Oklahoma city area (we're originally from Austin, TX). Yeah, I called the leader today and she told me the same thing- no interest. I can't help but wonder about that. I mean how can there be no interest?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:<br><br>
Anyhow, I really do like the area so far, but I can imagine missing Seattle. It was tough moving from Austin to Oklahoma.<br><br>
I'm the mom of two boys, 2 1/2 and 9 weeks! Can't wait to meet you all!

I love this idea! No one I know cds so it would be awesome to have a cd party. Fridays work really great for me b/c I don't have class. And I agree with afternoon b/c I have 2.5 hour drive. My best friend lives in Richland, so this gives me a really good reason to make the drive.<br><br>
Just out of curiousity- what exactly is a diaper party?

Ok mama's...how about friday Nov 7th at 4pm? Will that work for everyone?<br><br>
Trish~a diaper party is a chance for us to get together, show off our diapers, and talk about diapering, and whatever else we want! Oh and to eat!!! So bring as many diapers as you would like!<br><br>
I just need to know how many people are going to be there, and how many kids you are bringing and what their ages are. Would everyone be able to bring some type of snack? I will also be serving refreshments, but a variety would be nice.<br><br>
I will send instructions to my house after i hear back from those who will be able to come.<br><br>
I am so excited! This will be great to meet other cd moms!!!

Are you really in Pullman???? I go there at least once a week, often more then that! dd has gymnastics in Moscow and MIL lives in Pullman so we get groc and do stuff there all teh time. I just graduated from WSU in may, so I made that drive ( 1 hour 20 min) every day for the last 4 years! My best friend lives in Town, so I am there a lot! I would love to get together with you some time if you want!

Friday sounds fine..........except I'm wondering if we could start a little earlier...say, around 2:30ish PM?? Sabbath starts Friday evening around sunset and I'm thinking we'll still be gabbing and what not come sunset. Wanna have plenty of time to visit with you ladies before I have to leave! Lemme know if this would be alright....I'm so excited about meeting everyone. Maybe we'll just have to start up our own LLL....no interest, PSHAW!!!!! <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 just love that name for your little boy...Frankie. He sounds very cute and very mischevious! My two are Indiana James ("Indy" his father's idea)...and Esme Anna-Rose.

2:00 or2:30 will work fine for me. I just wanted to give everyone time to get here. So will 2:00 be alright with everyone?<br><br>
I think our own little LLL would be fun! I would also like to talk to people about attached parenting.<br><br>
oh, lisa, you said something about 2 other moms from mdc....I don't know who they are. Do you want to point them towards this thread?<br><br>
Does anyone else know any eastern wa moms we can invite?

Just kidding. I am there. I will be there with my dd (1yr) and ds (almost 5). But Kaelynn already knows that because we live a couple blocks away and she got me into cds. I will bring something better thand diapers to eat though:LOL See everyone on the 7th.<br><br>

Nov 7th sounds great 2 or 2:30 gives me plenty of time to get there. I'll be coming with my 5 mos. dd! And I'll work on the snack department.<br><br><br>
Jessmcg~ yep, sure enough I'm a Pullman-ite and I would love to meet some other mommies. Since my best friend left in May I really have no other moms I know. I'm done with class by 1:30 everyday except Monday, so anytime you're in town would be cool. How many, and how old is/are your little one(s)?

Hello, I live in Benton City, right next to richland. I posted a thread a couple months ago about Tri-cities AP people and only got 2 replies. It is nice to know there are others out there! Anyway, I would love to go to the diaper party. We are practicing EC also, but use cloth diapers in addition. I can bring my 2 daughters ages 6 months and 3.5 years old. We all have bad food allergies, though so I don't know how we will cope with that with all of the food around. I guess I will bring stuff that we can eat for sure.<br>
Maybe those of us who live in the area could start a regular AP meetup of some sort? I know there was a Northwest AP group leader in the area, but I am thinking it would be nice to have a less formal/structured group of some sort. Anyway, let me know if any of you are interested in that. Looking forward to meeting all of you!<br><br>
Thanks Lisa for letting me know about this!

Hey! Thanks for inviting me to this thread - I'll be there, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I would love to have some sort of regular meeting, too - I live an hour away, but I could make it once a month or something. Fridays work great for me. I know two other people in Tri-Cities from MDC that I will PM to make them aware of this thread.<br><br>

Oh, I forgot to say, if you guys are interested there's an WA state AP yahoogroup - it's pretty small and low-volume, but I'd love to get it going:<br><br><a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WashingtonStateAPers/" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WashingtonStateAPers/</a><br><br>
Also, I, too, am a WSU grad. LOL! 2001 in music, so is my dh. He is a band teacher in our little town and I teach music and co-ordinate the music at our church.<br><br>
Looking forward to meeting you all! My dh is truly laughing that we're having a diaper party - he asked if it was like a Tupperware party but for dipes. I think there is a business like that for AP mamas, but I've never been to one.
