Hi all,<br><br>
I met "feather" in the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and she rec'd these boards. Both of us were slinging our babes (DD is 16 mos) and were pleasantly surprised to see a kindred spirit in the local Shaw's!<br><br>
On a related note, does anyone here know about the Mountain Lauren Sudbury School in New Britain? I just discovered Sudbury Valley education, and apparently this school just opened a couple of years ago. (Wish there was one in Fairfield Co., though).<br><br>
TIA!<br><br>
JA (and DD Sofia)

Welcome to Stratford! I'm here too - just off Paradise Green. Grew up in town, moved to CA and moved back 9 years ago. Due in a few weeks with #1 for me, #3 for dh (sdd is 13 and sds is 16). If you see a guy in Shaw's during the day with a sling in a few weeks - that would be my dh! He's a SAHD and I work in Norwalk. Great to have another like minded family in Stratford.<br><br>
Sorry no info about the school in New Britain. PM me anytime - I know the area well - my family is still all around the area and my mom and I are always hunting for new interesting places all over the state.<br><br>
Welcome to the neighborhood!

Hey there Sofiabugmom!<br>
Glad to see you found your way over here! I am just seeing this for the first time today. We had our move to Thomaston(how horrid it is to move with small children.....) So I have been mostly offline for a month.<br>
Too bad I had to up and move almost an hour away right when I meet the first AP mom in Stratford <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br>
*See* you around here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

BUMMER, JUST LOST MY POST!<br><br>
Anyway, Hello from Stamford!! Glad to see that there are others from Fairfield County! I know there was someone on my "I'm Pregnant" Thread a few months ago that was from Newtown where my parents live.<br><br>
Anyway, as you can see from my signature, I have a new baby girl who's 7 months old and a spirited 3 1/2 year old boy. They are my whole life and we spend all of our time trapped in these 4 walls of our house!! Looking forward to the nice weather to get out! (we were in Florida all last week when the weather was nice here, go figure!).<br><br>
Look forward to hearing from you all!

Did you happen to grow up in Newtown? I did, so I'm just curious. I live in Southbury now.

No, we lived in Stamford most of my life, and then my parents moved to newtown like 6 years ago. (i have a younger brother, he's 11 now)... and they wanted to give him better schools and stuff, so that's why they moved.<br><br>
Southbury is nice, i love that new restarant there, Something McSomethings... over by the highway... Molly mcbrides?? i forget...

Do you mean Maggie McFly's? I live five minutes down the road from there, next to the boat launch. I've been there a couple times and I'm a big fan of their salads.<br><br>
Newtown does have a great school system. I had a really good experience there. My mom is currently a teacher at Middle Gate.

As the OP, I have one thing to say about myself -- "Shame on me!" It's been way too long since I've even had a chance to look at these replies, let alone respond <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">:<br><br>
Anyway ... my excuse is that we're moving! Staying in Stratford, but getting a very nice house in a very quiet neighborhood. I've lived on Route 110 for a little too long for my taste.<br><br>
Grandmasgirl and girliemama -- hi neighbors! If it's okay, I'll try PMing you soon after the move (middle of May).<br><br>
And, girliemama -- "change the toy's position if you wanna ace the sax"! I love Ernie!<br><br>
Feather -- I know the moving with small kids (well, "kid" anyway). Thankfully I have a friend who's willing to watch Sofia on moving day. Now I just have the other kid to watch over: DH! How are things up north?<br><br>
Is anyone here from Fairfield County interested in homeschooling? I'm going to meet the local HS group on a future Wednesday to get to know some of the members. Does anyone else want to join me sometime?<br><br>
Best to all,<br><br>

Hey, do you mean the Between Counties group? If so, I will certainly be meeting you sometime in the near future! My baby is colicky, so I haven't slept much. We don't really get anywhere lately, but I hope to soon. I love park days. We also live very close to Stratford.

Yep, girliemama, that's the one! I think we'll be at Wolfe Park sometime in June -- gotta get into the new house and out from under a mountain of cardboard.<br><br>
And, eek, I remember the colicky days! Here are some sleep vibes for you and the babe: ***zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz***<br><br>
Best to all,<br><br>
JA
