How many of you are out there??<br><br>
I'm Kelly and i have a 5 & 10 yo, so i'm out of the baby phase (for now<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ) but i'd love to know a few more natural mommas so i don't feel all alone.<br><br>
Situations have changed for me lately (got seperated, had to work more , and some) so i feel far from my natural roots . Need some reminding........<br><br><br>
Blessings, K

Thanks for replying Cathi,<br>
STBX and i just spent the day together so we just can't rip off that bandaid , not even sure what the best thing to do is...Glad things turned out well for you though.<br>
I see that you're an apprentice midwife. How are you doing it in the RVA area? or do you travel? I hope you make it and stay in the area, we could use more than just one HB midwife (at least out in the open)<br><br>
Blessings<br>

How did I miss this post? Beloved K, nice to meet you! I'm in Richmond, too (Woodland Heights, Southside). What part are you in? Maybe we could get together for tea! I'm due in Late August...<br><br>

HI! DH, (almost) 3yo ds, and I just moved to the area a month ago. We are currently living with my ILs <sigh> until DH finds a job; hopefully that will be by this week or next. ILs live in Glen Allen (around the corner from VA Center Commons); after DH finds a job we may move out to King William Co. or settle closer to town. I've been to an API playgroup and a LLL picnic- I *KNOW* there are some AP mamas around here!!!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="grouphug">

:LOL Okay, I'll bite. Let's do something, then! I am free free free just about every day. DS is super active so a coffee shop wouldn't be very enjoyable for me (although I LURVE my coffee!!). Has anyone been to that Romp n Roll? I think it's on the Southside and they have coffee, but I've never been so I don't know if it's great or if it sucks. I'd also be game to visit a playground (Crump Park & Mary Munford are our favorites) or go out to Short Pump and ride the train or.... whatever!

I know where Mary Munford is. Do you know the Tot Lot beside Byrd park? (it's fenced)<br>
I mostly have my 10yo in the AMs and both (5 & 10) in the afternoons. DD has alot (!) of plans this summer in the AMs (my mistake) Maybe my kids could bring friends to play with so they wouldn't be saying "i'm bored" (gimmee a break)<br><br><br>

I know where Byrd Park is, but not the Tot Lot. (lol, I'm a poet!) I bet DH would know, though- he's originally from here. Either AM or PM work for us- starting at 3pm is prime "need to get out of the house before we go bonkers" time. The more the merrier!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I was just concerned about Mary Munford bc you can't just see your toddler, there are so many hideouts and older kids go there sometimes. I still remember when DD was a tot.<br><br>
If your DH doesn't know where it is then let me know and i'll give good directions (i have to drive it and write it down) Its at the end of the Boulevard near the Carillon, kind of behind or beside it . 3:00 is usually great unless there is a dr appt (for DS) I have Mon and Weds. We are free on Mon. DD has a playdate on Wed so that wouldn't work this week, unless DS can find a friend to play with...sorry to be so confusing , i'm thinking out loud.<br><br>
Anyway, if mon works, let me know.

ACK! Sorry I missed this! I went to bed when DS did last night <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sleeping.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sleeping"> and we've been gone all day.<br><br>
How about next Monday? And maybe some of the other Richmond mamas can chime in and let us know if this time works for them, too. <hint hint! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> hey I know y'all are out there!!>

what I am hoping to be able to do, is if someone want a hb, and cant find anyone to help, and they email me early enough,(like around 5 mo or so,) I can come up and stay with one of my daughters, or with friends I have here. Sometimes if there is room, I stay with the client, like when I went to Korea earlier this year...I would still like to be a reference source, so will have to work at staying connected here....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Where are all of the other Richmond VA mamas??<br><br>
PM me for my phone # if you wish. This also gives me the chance to find playmates for my 10yo and maybe the 5yo

Cathi, That is so cool. I coudlve used you as a reference when i considered going unnasisted w/ my DD, i was just too aprehensive at the time. There is only one hb midwife around here, all others have gone underground bc of a legal issue about 5 years ago w/ a laymidwife (i've forgotten the details).<br><br>
I'll definately keep you in mind to reccomend to my pg friends , who are not going w/ Nancy , unfortunately i'm not pg at the time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Hi Everyone!<br><br>
I have a 2 yr old DS and we live out in King William - (about 40 min from Va Center Commons and we are accustomed,finally, to driving a while to get anywhere!)<br><br>
Q - I think I met you at the LLL picnic - King William is nice - will be building up like Hanover has been tho. I've heard that the schools are not very good (not an issue for us - as we plan to homeschool).<br><br>
Yankee - I think I know of you...through some other AP moms - Your little guy is just a little younger than mine! 6-23. We should try to get together!
