Well i was looking through the the circle of mom's communities for a Bakersfield California group and didn't find anything! so I decided that it was seriously lacking and one needed to be created.

I hope that this community can be used for advice on issues but also for finding out about things going on in the community that would be interesting for moms. I'll do my best to try and post things about different happenings but I need all of your help as well!

Cassandra, thanks for the invite. Unfortunately, I have a full time job and don't get much time to do activities outside the house other than on weekends. I love your idea and would love to make time for a gathering, but I will be very limited when it comes to availability. Keep me posted though, I just might be able to make one of the get-togethers.

Hi Cassandra,
I think its great to get something going here in Bakersfield! I'm a foster mom and right now I have a 7 month old little boy. But I could get more kids at anytime. I would love to help with what I can and would love to meet other foster parents as well! Thanks for the invite.

I would love to have my son in a playgroup. He hasn't had much interaction with other kids. He's 15 months.

I have a 2 year old, a 6 year old and a 16 year old, love to join. Do you all utilize the free family movies at Bakersfield Stadium 14 on Ming? They are older movies that you could rent on video and they start the 2nd week in June an go through until August 5th. There are two movies a week and you can go and watch them on Tues, Wed or Thur. There's a bunch of kids there, so it's okay if your kid isn't completely quiet.

Hi all, I appreciate the invite. I have a 2 year old and one on the way in October. I am in Oildale and been here since Jan 2008. Before that we were in SW for a year and hopefully will be there again by years end since we are wanting to buy a house soon. Laurelglen area seem to be the best options for us. Praying it will all work out. We are originally from Ventura County and basically all our family is still there.

hey everyone check out the latest post I made under the playgroup conversation and let me know what ya'll think as far as the date/time and which location is best....I prefer Jastro (near oak on truxton) just because it won't take me as long to get there with traffic and all! but I like both parks equally.

Hi Cassandra,

I would love to join. I have a daughter named Hope who is 20 months old. Our favorite park is Jastro, near Oak and Truxton. It has a water spray area which will be great once it gets warm.

Jessica- yeah I don't get around to doing much scrapbooking lately but it is a lot of fun! I was kind of intimidated when I first started too but then you get into your own routine of how you like to decorate your own pages. Mmmmmm......new idea! a scrapbooking mommy and baby/kids group. I wonder if anyone would be interested in like a once a month scrapbook day where we can bring our kids with us.....

The brand of scrapbooking I use is Creative Memories, I don't know any sellers (it works kind of like avon/mary kay) personally but if there is enough interest and enough dedicated moms i'd be willing to become a seller.

Hi! My name is Amber and I have three kids ages 2years-boy, 5 years-girl, and 9 years-girl. I'm so glad theres finally a bakersfield group going on here. I would like to meet up with other moms who have children similar in age. Playtime is always fun for the kids and having more friends is always a good thing.

Mosty photographing my children, I got a DSLR last year, and I've been learning the ins and outs of it. I don't plan on being professional any time, at least any time soon! I'm not so interested in development, mostly just learning how to capture correct lighting and simple editing. I love both color and B&W. I don't think I'm near entering a contest yet, maybe someday.

I would loe to get into scrapbooking! I'm a little taken aback with it because it seems like a LOT of work! But I've always wanted to give it a go!

Jessica- what are your interests regarding photography? I love photography! I don't get to practice it much anymore but when I manage to get a full time job i'm going to be doing much more of it. So do you like color or b&w, digital? have you developed your own pics or entered contests? Do you do scrapbooking?

Hi Cassandra :D .....Thanks for the invite. I have 9 month boy/girl twins and would love to have more friends for myself and the kids. I also have a 10 yr old son and 15 yr old daughter.

Great idea!!!!

Hi everyone! My kids are not school age yet! They're 4 & almost 2. I'm pretty active in online mommy group activities. My parenting interests are breastfeeding, cloth diapering, and car seat safety. I'm a pretty avid car seat fanatic! My son is 4y/o & in a high weight harnessing seat. My daughter is 23m/o and is in an extended rear facing seat. I love helping others learn more about their seats and their requirements. In America, an astonishing 3 out of 5 car seats are improperly installed and used! Car seat safety is very important, and I encourage every parent to educate themselves :)

I'm also interested in sewing, crocheting (maybe knitting someday when I'm brave!), photography, and traveling.

I'd love to get in touch with local moms of the same interests!

Hi Cassandra,
Thanks for starting this page, it's always helpful to hear what other moms are doing in Bakersfield. My son is 4 months old. It would be great to have some play buddies around the same age as well. If you or anyone else is interested... maybe we could start a play group?

Hey Cassandra!
Thanks for the invite! I have 2yr old son (Brady), as well as a 7 mth old son (Grant). I'm so excited to have other contact in Bakersfield as well. With a 2 yr old running around, I could definately use all of the advice I can get!

Thanks for responding ladies! :-) And the group is for everyone even those with older kids and what not. I am hoping to meet some moms with kids around the same age as my daughter Lilliana (she's 8 months) so she can have some play buddies. All mom's have a wealth of knowledge so of course everyone is welcome and i'm glad you guys have joined! Feel free to post anything!! :-)

Hi Cassandra:

I'm not sure how old your kids are. We are part of a homeschool group. If you are interested and even if your kids are not school age you would be more than welcome to come hang out with us. We have park day every Thursday and we also do field trips and have other activities.

Hi Cassandra! Thanks for creating this group, and thanks for the invite! My kids are also a little older, 3 and 7. We are pretty active in our homeschooling group, which is over on Yahoo Groups, "Bakersfield Home Learners." I figured I might as well throw some info out there for everyone to see too, haha. If anyone's homeschooling or interested, come check us out! : )

Hi Cassandra. I hope that your efforts will be worthwhile! I have older children than you but wanted to let you know that I benefitted greatly from participation in a moms group when mine were younger. Now I am a lactation consultant and I facilitate the Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Breastfeeding Support Group. Please feel free to share our info with anyone who might need some extra breastfeeding/ attachment parenting love! We are at 327-4647 and we carry 3 pagers: 379, 380, and 342. We are happy to provide phone help, in-person consults, and invite anyone to our support group. As the facilitator of a moms group of your own, I'm sure you will be looked at as a source of information. Good luck! Christine Staricka

I'm in! Charlie needs to find some more buddies his age to play with... I know NOTHING about the stuff available to children in this town (we are new residents and parents, so it's ALL new to us)... :)
