i meet a group of ladies at gymboree, we were all first time moms and our kids where ranged from 3 to 8 months. it was serious what kept me sane. we were all in the same boat and it was so helpful. after having our second children we have lost touch due to preschool but those ladies really did mean the world to me during that time.


Have you ever heard of the Parents as Teachers group? They are run through the school districts & many of them offer playgroups in addition to a monthly meeting at your home where the "teacher" comes in, brings a monthly developmental activity & talks with you about what milestones your kids are hitting & what you can be working on. These playgroups are how I've met most of the moms I know, which has been really helpful since we moved here not knowing a soul. Here's the website in case any moms are interested:http://www.parentsasteachers.org/site/pp.asp?c=ekIRLcMZJxE&b=272119
You can search by state or zipcode to see if there's a program in your area.


Have you ever heard of the group, Parents as Teachers? They are sponsored through the school districts & many of them offer playgroups. In addition, the "teacher" also comes to your house once a month & brings an age appropriate activity for each kid & talks with you about where your kid is developmentally & things you can be working on. This group has been a sanity saver for me since we moved to a new town where we didn't know a soul. Here's the website incase anyone is interested:

i agree. while it's not a "playgroup" Mocha Moms has been my lifeline since I became a mom. it's a support group for mothers and naturally they have playgroups and other activities for the kids too. the group has been wonderful for me and that's why i'm a walking billboard for the organization!


It sounds like you've had the good and the bad. I've never been fortunate enough to have a play group, but I know when we get together with friends, it's all parents "against" the kids. We all have to look out for each other's kids or it just doesn't work.

We outgrew our first playgroup as soon as my 2nd was mobile. I was the only one even considering a second baby and it became pretty obvious early on that none of the "first time moms" were okay with my toddler being, well, a toddler...I had already gone through the inevitable "loosening up" that happens when you bunch and although my oldest was the youngest among his peers there was no understanding for him doing anything typical for his age while I was running the other way to keep the baby from being squished by another kid. It was really hard to let go of that since they had been *my* playgroup, too, but it was probably inevitable anyway...soon after that we became nap-trapped and have remained that way through the birth of #3. I wish I knew more bunchers now though because I'd love to find another playgroup that was age appropriate for 3 under 4 all at the same time.
Until then, I'll settle for dragging my oldest to playgroups for the girls and hosting playgroup for the big kids at our house while the baby naps.


uhg, we need a playgroup... i have a really really awesome friend with a son the same age as my oldest. right now she IS our playgroup. and my sanity. but they're moving next week :-(
