It seems like there is nothing out there for us "Working" moms. For instance, all the Mommy & Me type of things are during the week, during the day. OK, so what if working moms want to go to a Mommy & me group? I guess we don't get to participate. Maybe other areas have things for working moms, but not here - nothing that I can find so far. I really want to socialize Julianna with other babies and I think it would be fun to meet other moms with babies around the same age as her.
So it made me think about starting my own group for "Working moms (or working parents) & babies". Why should we be left out in the cold? We should have our own play group, right? I think I might do it for a Sunday evening or Saturday mid-morning, maybe once a month. I have to come up with some ground rules but I am thinking about trying to limit the group to working parents only with their babies/young toddlers.
I also know I need a venue. I can't have it at my house, it's too small here, not to mention my crazy jack russell will terrorize the visitors. LOL. When it's nice out, we can do it in the local park - but if it's bad weather, we need a fall-back place. I also need to figure out what to do for the actual group - do we just make it a play time event and everyone can socialize how they please? Or do I charge a couple bucks so we can have some refreshments and snacks too?
Has anyone ever been involved with something like this or organized a playgroup before? Any suggestions or advice is greatly welcomed! :)
