Is anyone a member of a Mommy & Me play group? Would you be interested in one, and if so why?

Hi everybody! My name is Sara, I just turned 20 on Nov 7, and My daughter Chloe is 3 months old now :)
I started a community to help me get ideas for a Mommy & Me group that is to be run out of my local health department. I have been asked by my healthy families social worker to make a blue print for this group. I am not getting paid for my ideas, research, or time spent organizing the whole thing but as a stay at home mom living in a rural area, in a bad economy, I can only hope that my ideas and plans for the group are good enough to get mom's like YOU to attend it, and eventually maybe it'll mean a paycheck for me so I can contribute to my family.

PLEASE search Mommy & Me Health Club and join the community!! Tell me about your experiences with the playgroup your involved in, or what you would look for in such a group. Thanks Much!!

Well, I'm from a small town and the only "play group" we have in this area is in a town 40 miles away. Things I would look for would be not just parents bringing kids to play together, but activities that Moms do with their kids AND other moms and their kids. It would make it alot easier to meet other moms with that pressure off. I would look for age appropriate toys/materials/activities and a bright open colorful atmosphere. I would also look at the leader of such a group, are they good with children of all ages? Are they able to interact with the adults in an open and inviting manner (encouraging such behavior between moms). Also, someone who is child smart and can answer simple questions and go that extra mile for us all! I think it's great that you're helping with this with no monetary gain as of yet! I wish you the best of luck!
