Why is everything for parents & babies during the day on weekdays? It's driving me nuts! I can't even go to the gym because their only childcare goes until 5pm M-F.

Is this just a Japan thing or is it like this elsewhere too?

it's like that here, too

i'd love to do mommy & baby yoga or storytime or something, but we're out of luck.

Re: Rant!

here too..
It pi**es me off to no end. I would love a few weekend things that didn't cost an arm and a leg especially during the winter.

I actually went as far a complain to the local baby store that hosts most of the events I would participate in.

it is also mommy groups. They are all weekdays. So I have no mommy friends outside the office. (well other than online )

Yup, like that here, too. One of my neighbors is a stay at home mom. She gets to do so many different fun things with her son during the week. I get jealous sometimes.

Yep. Like that here as well. Even when it comes to many things being sold on-line it's like that (I used to miss every darned thing on hyenacart--still miss alot, but thankfully I'm not looking for anything!).

Here too. Only one other mom in my mother's group of 10 work full-time. There are several part-timers but most are SAHM.
