Derry is exit 4 off Rt. 93, very close to Salem and the Mass. border. it looks like you are prob. 30-40 minutes north of us (looks like you are East of Machester). im not that familiar with the area, but its not that far...just not next door.

Hey all! 'Nother Derry mama here! Actually I am the mama of twins of which Rach speaks.
Hey Rach!


I moved to Derry a year ago and I am not really sure if this is "east", "south" or what . . . but I am off of Ford Way Ext, near the Windham line. Rach and I have become fast friends and we have also met up with other mamas (I'm still waiting for the Bud tour!
).

My family and I co sleep (yes, even the older ones are still welcome!), nurse (which my 4 yo **** does on occasion), sling, etc. Anywhoo, glad to meet another like minded mama! Maybe we can get together sometime.

Manchester woudl probably be a good "in between".

and that mall is even bigger!

but if that is the largest mall you have ever seen, stay out of Atlanta!!!!

I currently live in the bay area of CA. I am raising my 4 year old child (boy) by myself and am considering NH or ME. I have a cousin who lives in Manchester and have heard a lot about it. I still nurse him and co sleep. I would like him to attend a waldorf school. How is Manchester? Is it a nice place to live? What is housing like? Here a 30 year old home, in a not too savory part of town, will run close to $600,000. I can never afford to purchase a home.

I am an educator and can make a decent middle class living all by myself. Would Manchester be a good option? How about the Lake Winnepesaki area? (sorry for poor spelling) Is MAine perhaps a better choice (I have aunties and cousins there). I grew up in ME for five years (74-79).

Thanks all.

i like NH for many reasons. love the town i am in b/c of the school district. moved here from Boston, so for me, the cost is awesome. $600,000 can get you ALOT of house here. however the wages in NH are not what they are where you live nor what they are in Boston, so i dont konw what kind of pay cut you would be dealing with there. if you hvae more questions, feel free to pm if you want or ask away here.

There is a Waldorf School...http://www.pinehill.org/ in the Amherst/Milford area and also a Waldorf High School right across from that...http://www.highmowing.org/. We love NH too, and $600,000 here will by you quite the house.

I have friends in this area and grew up here but rarely do I find anyone who shares my same views on parenting. I'm embarrassed to tell most people in real life that yes, I'm still nursing my 3-year-old; yes, we still co-sleep even w/ our older children; and no, we've never let our children cry it out! I'm proud of these facts but since no one seems to understand, I keep them quiet for the most part.
So, if you're from this area and can understand some of my parenting beliefs, I'd love to hear from you!! I guess you can say, I'm hoping to find my tribe

Thanks!
Hi Nikki! We are right outside of Manchester, about 20 minutes from Derry.
I have a just 3 yo ds and a 14.5mo dd. We would love to meet up with y'all.

I'd love to meet up with you all! I'm busy for the next two weekends though but anytime after that would be great! It's a toss up about which mall is bigger -- I prefer the Salem (Rockingham) mall just b/c I'm more familiar with it. I work in Andover, MA, and go there frequently for my lunch breaks. So, if we meet up, maybe we could go to one of those malls, the Met in Derry, or even the Portsmouth Children's Museuem (that's about 40 min from Derry but maybe a good midpoint for some of us).

They are both very big but the Salem mall does have 2 floors.
I am bored today with noone to hang with. (not that I ever have anyone to hang with)

Where I grew up in Vermont, the nearest mall was an hour away, and WAY smaller than any mall I've ever seen around here. The mall in Salem is about the size of the town I grew up in. My husband is from Mass, so its no big deal to him, but i'm amazed! And there is a babies R us in Salem. A WHOLE store about babies! Granted, there is nothing there I need or want, but I can't believe the size of that store!
