About a year ago, I discovered a forum for “crunchy” moms living in Atlanta – cloth diapering, breastfeeding, babywearing, etc. I am very active on there, enjoying the friendships I have made with other like-minded local moms. They are a wonderful group of ladies, and have been so encouraging to me with all things Mommy! In January, I went to a playdate and met many of them in person, and since then I have made the effort to spend time with these ladies as often as I can. :-)
Last night, I joined two of them for a girls’ night to a screening of the movie “Something Borrowed”. It was really fun! The author of the book the movie is based on is apparently from Atlanta, so the author and the producer were there to do some introductions (which I thought was pretty cool!). I enjoyed the movie, but mostly I enjoyed hanging out and gabbing without having to keep anyone from running off into the street. :-)
Today, we had a playdate/surprise birthday party for the creator/moderator of our forum. We had a wonderful time! We met at a park that was somewhat central for everyone, and I alternated between chasing after Savannah in the playground and chatting with these ladies. :-) Whenever we get together, we always make sure our babies have the cutest diapers on and we love gabbing about our favorite diapers and baby carriers, among other topics.
I wish I’d gotten a picture of all of us today, but I totally forgot. Here is a picture of all of us at the Great Cloth Diaper Change a few weeks ago.
If you’re in the Atlanta area and enjoy the company of crispy/crunchy moms, then you should definitely join us!! And if you’re not in Atlanta… then I feel bad for you. :-)
