Hi Mamas, I'm in Montpelier....first baby due 1/5/09, and hoping/planning to CD. Have registered for some AOIs, pockets, a few covers and a couple dozen prefolds...but I have a feeling diapers aren't what people want to buy for baby showers. : )

My DH is very skeptical about CD, so the plan is to get together a minimal stash in NB/small, heavy on the easy ones like AOIs, and see how it goes. If anyone has anything in their stash they're willing to part with for cheap, please let me know--I didn't realize how expensive used CDs were until I started looking on DS! :blush:

We use to visit Rutland frequently when DH's grandma was alive ( I was actually in Pitsford today driving around while the kids napped :giggle: ). We still go down occasionally since are Honda's are serviced down there and I like to go to that Joanns :)

Any VT mamas here???

The NEK here...

I am in Groton and spend most of my time in Barre-Montpelier or STJ.

DH's family has been in STJ/Lyndonville for generations.

I'm probably not good for a diaper swap. Everything we have, we use/need, but if anyone is destashing and you have BG organics (snaps only), Fuzzi Bunz pockets with the pointy tabs, or some GN wool longies/shorties or IV Bumpy covers let me know. I'd be happy to buy for the right price.

Hi there! I've never actually posted here before, but my husband grew up in
Essex and we're considering a move back to the Burlington area next summer.

Are there any Burlington area AP-type online or playgroups? And do you have any opinions on the Burlington area school districts?

I have 3 daughters- a 13 yr old, 8 yr old, and 7 mo old.. I like to spread em out!

I'm in Burlington too. I'm thinking of setting up a group diaper swap / sale some time in the early summer. Just not sure where :headscratch: .

Hmm I am not sure? Maybe a local park with a lot of parking nearby? It is hard because a lot of places charge $$ for the "rental" of the space.

Maybe a local CD mom would want to offer up her front yard or something? Depending on when I might be able to but I am not right downtown. I also have two kiddo birthdays in the early summer (may and June) so it might be a tiny bit hectic but I would love a chance to meet more local CD moms that have kiddos...myself and my kids are always on the look out for new friends!

I'm thinking of St Anthony's gym b/c I live in the south end. I just need to see what they charge. I don't know if Burlington allows stuff like that in their public parks b/c I was thinking Oakledge would be a good place too.

Oakledge might work but then you are at the mercy of the weather. I am not sure where St. Anthony's is so I can't comment on that one.

Did someone have a garage sale in the south end of Burlington last weekend? Maybe JuniperVT? I was just curious, it would be nice to connect a local face to someone else on here. I bought 4 Swaddlebees from the the mama whose little girl was potty trained, love them by the way!

Also, just a bump in case there are new VT mamas on here!

so glad you like them. I hope she does ok w/ the diapers she bought. I gave her my email & told her to email me w/ any questions. I have not heard from her. I hope she does contact me b/c I have a small cover I wanted to give her.

Kellihope, I am looking for local mommy friends too and just moved to a new house a few months ago. I still am finding my way around. You are in Westfield right? I am in the NEK I guess in wheelock near lyndonville? I think I am about an hour away from you. My sister is in Lowell and loves playgroups. She has 5 kids. The only time I usually get out to westfield is to go to Butterworks farm.

Also the huge clothing swap is this Saturday and I wouldn't miss it! Anyone else going?

ooh, where's the clothing swap?

We are in westfield, not far from Butterworks - there's really nothing else "in" Westfield! We go up to the playground at jay/westfield school to play, also the newport playground. Maybe we (and your sister) can meet up sometime? Lowell is only 5miles from here.

The clothing swap is the best. Over 100 people attend over the 2 days. Friday from 11-7 drop off clothes and Saturday 8-2 look. It is all free and you do not have to donate to get clothes. If you drop off clothes fri, you can look then too. It is not a place for kids to run around and I plan on atleast 2 hours there. It is in Derby at the IROC center off of route 5 (a few businesses behind mcdonalds).

I would love a playdate, but it wont be for a little bit. We are having car trouble and getting around is tough and rare. But soon...
I will try to get my sister to post here as the takes her kids to the playground up that way a bunch.

We are looking anywhere in a 30minute commute from Cabot, so Montpelier to St. Jay....anyone live there who can vouch for fun, family friendly, close knit communities?? We have been so lacking in social opportunity living up here in the middle of nowhere and we desperately want to make friends with some young families like ours - any input would be terrific!
