It has been awhile since I have posted. I lost my dad just a few weeks ago, so haven't really been keeping up with some things. But I wanted to check in to meet some of the new "Nutmegger" Moms and say, "welcome!".

My intention for creating this group was inspired by my friend Rachel. She was new to CT-a submariners wife in SE CT. From a different part of the country, here temporarily, at home with a beautiful baby girl needing to get out and do things and meet people. I realized that there must be several moms in her shoes, so what better solution than an online networking place! Since that time almost 600 of us have signed in!

I am hoping as each of you introduces yourselves and posts your location, you are able to connect with other moms in your area, with similar aged children. As you meet up for play dates, etc and take advantage of all that CT has to offer, I hope you are encouraged and feeling less isolated.

A little about me-I have been happily married to my "prince" for 31 years. We have 2 grown "kids"-Caitlin age 21 and Erik age 18. We home educated from start to finish and this year is my first year not schooling! I am still really busy, so other things have moved into that space. We live in the little village of Baltic, right next to Norwich. The lovely Shetucket River runs through town-see the profile picture. My husband Kirk and I enjoy bicycling and have been discovering all the rails to trails in our area and out on the Cape. Really fun! Although it is getting too cold to be on a bike! Kirk is a corrections officer in a max prison and I have had a successful home based business for about 16 years. We are part of the Norwich Alliance Church family and host 2 marriage weekends a year.

I would love to hear your stories about some of the connections you have made. I am native to CT, so if you have any questions, let me know. I will try to help.

Warmly, Phyllis

Hey everyone. I just moved to Ledyard CT with my husband (who's in the Navy) and our five-year-old daughter. I'm a stay at home mom currently, and my daughter just started kindergarten. We would love to meet some other moms in the area to have play dates and get to know people from around here. I'm new to the whole moving around thing and not knowing people when I get there. :-)

Hello Ct Mommies, I'm Maureen I'm 31 and I have recently been reaquainted with an at home mom position I left 6 years ago. AKA I got laid off...:( I have 4 interesting children. Dylan is almost 13, Cali is 11, Jackie will be 8 in February and Sofia(Fia) is 18 months. We live in Ansonia. We kinda hide out during the colder months unless there is snow on the ground. We love movies and board games, and playing cards but in the summer, we try our best to not be in the house. we love the beach, the pool, camping, hiking, soccer. We would love to meet some new families and make some new friends, and have great adventures.
