Help! I am desperate to meet some other AP Mamas in the area. I have a 20 month old son and an 11 day old daughter and I'm feeling so lonely. I have some great mainstream friends, but no one that shares my views on parenting. With the new baby and a very clingy toddler I need all the support I can get. I hope there is someone here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hey! Congrats on the new little one. I used to live in Milford. I could get out that way. I think we've met on another thread before. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I would love to get together. Once the baby is just a little older I'd be happy to meet half way to lessen the trip for you. And you're right, I think I remember you from a Poconos thread.

Yeah, I used to live on Log Tavern Rd (inlaws still live there). We come out on Sundays a lot, but I'm afraid to drive into Milford proper with my uninspected car. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: Maybe we could get together for a couple hours at one of the parks around there... I remember Raymondskill and Childs (I think those are the names). Maybe get the inlaws in on it too... they're semi crunchy (homeschooling, former bf'ing, natural living, at least). The younger siblings are all teens now, though.

Sounds great! Childs Park is one of my favorites so that would be my pick, but I'm fine with anywhere. I just realized yesterday that our car is past inspection too...thank goodness the road block we got stopped at was in NY so they just waved us along.

PM me your e-mail address and I'll get you on the API Hudson Valley (NY) e-mail group. There are three moms from Port Jervis on that. We meet in Cornwall (when we find a meeting place...) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

You two are bringing back some memories for me. I moved from Dingman's 3.5 years ago. I wish I knew of natural mommas when I was there. Child's Park is beautiful. I used to drive by it all the time when I would go home (off of Silver Lake Road.)<br><br>
That's my 2 cents...<br>
Enjoy!

shm: how long are you going to be up here for? June 26 is probably the next Sunday I have free. I'm busy July 3, 10, & 23rd, too. Guess I have more of a social life than I thought. :LOL<br><br>
I'd be up for meeting somewhere in between on weekdays, though.

I forgot to check back in on this thread. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br><br>
I'm not actually free Sunday anyway, SIL's graduation party. But I am going to Promised Land tomorrow (if it's going to be as hot and sunny as it's supposed to). I haven't been in a long time so I don't remember what all they have, but I know there's a beach and swimmable lake ? and DH is going to fish, and we'll probably barbecue. Not sure if the ILs are coming or not.<br><br>
Dunno how big it is, if you'd be able to spot us easily or whatever. But if anyone comes out and sees us, come say hello.

Hi! I'm in Sussex Cty, NJ (Vernon area) which I don't think is too far from you. I've been here for a year now but haven't met many other moms who have much in common with me, generally.<br><br>
My kids are now 5 and 3 but I remember the first few months with my boy, Luc, when Haven, my girl, was 2 and very clingy. I managed to learned how to breast feed little Lucas with one hand while running around after Haven - I got to be quite talented, really. It was a fun, but frustrating time.<br><br>
Anyway, it would be nice to get to know you a little. Perhaps some time a littel later in the summer we could meet up for an afternoon or something. I have a car and don't mind driving a ways (everything is far from here anyway).<br><br>

I posted a reply but I think it showed up in the wrong place, so here is the text of what I had written:<br><br>

Wow...a Vernon mom! I'm in Wantage, pg with my first. I didn't realize that there was anyone from Sussex county on this site. (I'm actually at the Wantage library right now using the internet! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> )<br><br>
