I hope you are able to connect with a local MC chapter. They really have been lifesavers. And it's not all just about playdates either. The group does charity projects for local organizations as well as international ones. We have done shoe drives for kids in Mexico and food drives for hungry families here in our city. Another thing Ilove about it is that if it's not meeting your needs (not enough going on, bad timing with your schedule...) you can change it, just offer to host something yourself when it's convenient for you even if it's just a morning/afternoon at the park. Each chapter is whatever it's members want it to be. Best of luck to you and your little ones. Hugs!

I am here for you, what is wrong? As a mother I think we should all stick together!

I would try meetup.com, too. If there are no groups I'd just go to the park with an open mind and talk to moms there. Sometimes you have to start the convo.

Hi Anila! I'm a happily married mom of 2, living in southern WA. We just moved to this area in the last year, and I can relate to needing some female companionship! I really miss my friends! I haven't read all of the responses to your post, so forgive me if I'm repeating advice, but have you checked out Meetup.com? They have lots of meet-up groups (depending on your area), and you can usually find some for moms with young kids where you all get together with (and sometimes without) your kids for fun and companionship. Are you on facebook? I'd love to friend you on there if that's okay!

I don't know where in Canada you are but there is an international group that I am part of called MOMS Club (momsclub.org). I was just looking at the web site and the do have groups there. You might want to check it out. Kids are welcome at all events except for moms night out. This group saved my sanity with both of my kids. My sons and I have both made friends in this group that we wouldn't have met otherwise. Once you get to know the other members you may even find a couple who would be willing to watch your kids sometimes so you could have some time off. We just went to a wedding this weekend and didn't have to take our boys because we had another family who agreed to watch them for us.

GO TO COOL.DE.SACK! It's so much fun for both you and your kids! Anyways, sounds like some harsh in laws, maybe you can leave them at a center throughout the days and go to the park for a walk or just a nice drive! Hope everything goes great. If anything i'm here for you.

i am from Florida! Oh and why don't you ask your in-laws to kindly watch your children? Try something new like a spa or go to a famous restaurant in town. after all spontaneous plans are the best
