In the community description you will see that I'm attempting to use this site as a resource for inspiration to develop a blue print for a Mommy & Me group in my home town, in a very rural area.

I want to focus the group on physical fitness. We'll have different workout demonstrations, such as pilates with baby, yoga, dance. I'm planning a 2 part day at the pool trip where part one would be an educational lecture and CPR class, and part 2 would be a fun swim day at the town pool....

This group is also largely focused on the mental health of mom's, supporting each other and helping cope with issues like PPD, money, men, and of course our kids.

It will consist of educational lectures, physical activities, Q & A discussions with certified dietitians and other pros in their field, crafts, play, and hopefully field trips... assuming we get the state funding we need to really make this work.

But I need your help and ideas!!! so please join and start discussing :)
