    Default Wanted - Mothers group!!

    Ok, so this may sound a little desperate and sad, but I have a really small group of friends, and lately those who I thought were friends are seeming more and more wrapped up in their own and too busy to care about mine and Jackson's!

    I never hit it off with my mothers group, went to a couple and never went back, but especially now I am home full time I am really missing the interaction with others mums and bubs, and am feeling a bit lonely.

    I live in Narre Warren, but I don't mind travelling somewhat - not too far obviosly, or maybe even if there are some mums in the same boat as me, we can start a new mothers group, that would be great, then I wouldnt be joining one and feeling like the odd one out because I didnt know anyone.

    Hi min, I noticed Jackson is almost 1 so when I typed my first post I thought you might be a bit busy! Let me know if you need a hand with anything with the party! I am free at the moment so I will look up playgroups on the net.

    Just so you know, I work casually as a swim teacher so I am not available Tue 3 - 6pm, Wed 3 - 6pm, Thur 9 - 12noon and Friday Aidan is at his Nana and Grandad's all day as I work 2 shifts. Oh and Aidan does swimming on Monday's at 10am. So I am busy in little spurts most days but I do have lots of spare time other than then! My DH is a workaholic so he works lots of Saturdays and in the summer he plays cricket so I would be keen to catch up some Saturdays when he isn't working! My friends adore Aidan but they are all still kid-free so I too find it hard socialising. Mothers Group are great but dont 100% 'click'.

    Good luck with the party!

    Jessica, you don't work at Casey Arc do you, that is where Jackson has his swimming lessons, they have a creche next door, that is why I thought you might mean there. THanks for the offer re help, I think I pretty much have everything sorted, just fiddly stuff now

    Thank you so much for all your offers girls, you have really lifted my spirits these last couple of days.

    I am definately going to take you up on your offer, Hopefully will sort something out next week, after Jacko's party is all over and done with, can't think straight at the moment.

    Thank you all again, you all deserve :flower:

    Jonah adores it, he has such a great time, I glad we decided to do it, so worth it, he's been going since he was 6 months.

    min, I work at one in Narre Warren. I'll tell you when we meet up!

    Had a quick look on the net for playgroups and there seems to be plenty around the area. I live close to 'Brentwood Park Comm Centre' so if you are interested in travelling to Berwick that would suit me. The whole thing confuses me a bit though as I am not sure if we are meant to join a group or create our own and I dont want to create too much work for ourselves when we are already busy!

    Min - I'm a bit too far away too! My MG didn't work out either... such a pity!
    I take Gab to playgroup on Fridays (I take Paige too... she's the daughter of one of the girls from my MG.. I look after her 4 days a week) and it's really good. I get along well with the other parents and the girls are getting use to it. They love playing with all the different toys and watching the bigger kids doing their thing.

    Next week the playgroup is splitting into 2 and going to someone's house for a cuppa just to get to know eachother a little better. Should be interesting!

    Our membership fees aren't too bad. It's only $20 a term... which I think is pretty good. I am sure if you shop around, you could find something that suits you.

    Our playgroup is church-based. While I'm not a religious person, I don't really mind singing songs and listening to Christian stories... I don't see the harm. Others felt a bit funny about it and decided to not continue but, each to their own. You've gotta feel comfy, right?

    Hey Min!

    I live in Narre Warren and would love to get together with some other mums in the area. I too only have a very small circle of friends and would love to begin some new friendships.

    If you want some help working out details PM me and we can catch up.

    Default Play Groups

    Hi I;m in a playgroup at Rowville (we use to live there) but we moved about 35 mins away but we still drive there every week because Mackenzie just loves it and I enjoy the conversation with the other mums. The place where we go (Taylors Lane) have sessions each day and I think from memory they have 3 sessions still available for this term. The set up is great - fantastic toys for all ages and a great undercover (sun protection) outdoor area, Tea, coffee, milk all inclusive. It is $25 per term and there is also a membership fee which you will need to pay to the playgroup assoc which you will find if you go to any of the 'officially' run play group centres. It is about 20-25 mins from Berwick (I use to work in Berwick) and a great run along the freeway! If you don't have any luck in your area let me know and I will talk to the others in our group about you joining us if you like! We don't bite but our kids are all a little older - they are all just turning 2 but we do have 3 new babies all born last month!

    Hi min,

    Sorry I haven't been much help. I hope Jackson had a great birthday!

    Keep me posted, really looking forward to meeting a few other BB's now. And let me know if you want me to make any phone calls. From Fletch's post I guess we just ring the centres and ask?
