Re: High Desert Mamas?

I'm not sure if the playgroup is what I was hoping for. We spent the most of the time doing the ASQ form. I think they should have mailed them out ahead of time because it was nearly impossible to get my son to pay attention to me since it was a new environment with a good number of people and an entire table of toys. The lady running it was already talking about identifying problems and getting referrals and interventions. My son was a bit behind in a couple of areas but then it was asking for him to do things that he has not before: such as stack blocks 6 high. The blocks we have at home are large and tip over around 5 high.

The organizer mentioned that next time they will be evaluating if the toddlers are too attached to us parents. I'm not sure if I agree that there's such a thing as a SAH-parented toddler being too attached. I plan to go to the next one but if I feel like it's not a good fit for us then I don't think I'll go the time after....

Hope you and your girls are doing well!

Re: High Desert Mamas?

I really wanted to go, but our house flooded and almost a month later we are still repairing it! We have had one person after another tearing apart our house and fixing it! Hopefully next time I wrote down the date.

I agree about the attachment thing, crazy they would "test" that! I mean for the most part my parenting style falls under the "attachment" parenting style, although I prefer to call it natural parenting, since I parent by what feels right.

Re: High Desert Mamas?

Wow, that sounds like a real pain with your house. I've been lucky enough to avoid renovations since I've heard they can be such an inconvenience.

I'm towards the AP side also. And I could understand a child being overly attached being a problem if daycare was involved or if they were approaching school-age (assuming the parents were not planning/able to homeschool). We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

Re: High Desert Mamas?

I know this thread is old but I wanted to say hi to the high desert mamas. I'm living at Edwards AFB, which is a little north of Lancaster.

Re: High Desert Mamas?

Hi Everyone! I'm not sure if anyone checks this thread anymore or not, but my family and I just moved to the High Desert (Victorville) from NY. I would LOVE to meet some other like-minded mamas! It is lonely not knowing anyone! I have four children, ages 12, 7, 4, and 2. My two oldest sons go to Mountain View Montessori Charter school and I currently stay home with my two daughters. Although I don't cloth diaper anymore (they are all potty trained...sniff I still love everything about cloth diapers and am a strong advocate of cloth diapering. I would love to get together for a playdate if anyone is interested!! Hope to talk to you soon !! -Pam
