Hi there!
Name: Angela
Location: North Bend (but like traveling to Bellevue/Renton/eastside)
Age and Status: 29, single (single parent)
How many children and their ages: 1 girl, age 11 months
Occupation: At home mom currently looking for a job.
Favorite thing to do with your family in Washington: Exploring new trails (depending on weather), exploring, window shopping, and seeing new things around here.

Hi, I'm a single parent of an 11 month old daughter who is well behaved, but of course, very active and we need socializing. I'd love to have her meet kids close to her age to play with in a playgroup or meet somewhere like Bell Square play area or Kid's Quest or a safe place for them to play. I'm a chef/baker by trade and looking for work, but in the meantime, we're bored at home and on our own all the time, so if you're interested in the same kind of thing for your kids and yourself, let's chat!

My Old Stomping ground
Hi everyone. This is my first post to this community. And true confession is that I don't live in Washington but my heart is there.
 I was born in Aberdeen (like Kurt Cobain) and I lived all over the state off and on until moving to Arizona in 1993.
 I graduated from High School in  Newport, Washington in 1983.
I met and married my husband at PLU in Parkland and had all of my kids in Tacoma at Tacoma General Hospital. We lived in Puyallup shortly before our third child was born. All of my relatives live there and when I read about Washington, my hear goes pitter-patter! 
 I have lived on both the Eastern and the Western side of the state. Most of my kin have/or do work for Boeing.
So I am in love with this community. Thanks for letting me gush here.
Oh, and I want to retire there after my stint in Arizona is through. Or at least have a summer home there.
My mom and sister live in Tacoma currently.
11:15 am
Name: Sarah
Location: Chicago... for now.
Age and Status: 27 and married
How many children and their ages(names too, if you'd like to share): My son Xander is 4 and my daughter Piper is 9 months old.
Occupation (yes, stay at home mom or dad counts!): The kids keep me workin.
Favorite thing to do with your family in Washington: Well, we've never even been... yet!
feel free to add pics if you'd like, but please put them behind a cut.

So, Hi!  I'm currently living in Chicago (been here all my life) but am hoping to re-root in Washington within the next year. My sister just moved out there to attend Evergreen University and has just completely fallen in love with the area and some how convinced me and my mum to follow her even though neither of us has even been to Washington!  And yes,  I realize how odd that sounds, lol.  There's just nothing holding us here and from everything I've researched Washington seems like it'd be a great fit for my family. We like rain ;)

I'm hoping maybe you guys will be able to give me some pointers as we start this migration?  Like I said my sister is going to Evergreen so we'll probably be looking for housing around Olympia. Any things I should know about that area?Any towns to steer clear of? Any particularly great school districts out there? We'll probably be visiting in June or July to check some places out.

Hopefully you guys won't mind an outsider hanging out here. And thank you so much for any tips you guys might have!

Has anyone else heard the anti co-sleeping propaganda announcements at Albertsons? I heard it yesterday and am still rather upset about it. I was just wondering if it was just the one by our house, or if it's at all of them.

Important Bulletin about Seattle Music Scene

From The Seattle Nightlife and Music Association (SNMA)

Yesterday City Councilmember’s Clark and Drago issued a press release and briefing paper outlining a series of proposals in response to the Mayor’s proposed nightlife regulations. http://seattlenma.org/downloads/clark_release  press release herehttp://seattlenma.org/downloads/clark_brief
the briefing paper here.Councilmembers Clark and Drago are proposing a series of actions that if, taken together, would be for more egregious than what the mayor originally proposed. These actions include:Embracing the mayor’s proposal of creating a new nightlife license which would be used to close down clubs at the discretion of the city.Significantly increasing fines for noise violations from $500 up to $6000.Amending the current nuisance ordinance so the city could more easily close down clubs.Requesting the mayor to consider even more regulations on nightlife establishments.
If this entire package were to be adopted, Seattle would have some of the most stringent nightlife regulations in the country.

It appears that Councilmember Clark is intent on seeking approval of all elements of the package! This would have a devastating impact our music industry!!

Your voice needs to be heard now and loud. First, email the City Councilmembers today.   And then attend the MONDAY June 4th public hearing on this package. It begins at 5:30. Get there early to sign up! This hearing is in the City Council Chambers on the 2nd floor of City Hall located at 600 - 4th Ave downtown.

Below are the emails to the councilmembers: the area code is 206

fair babysitting rate?
I am currently looking for someone to come into my home once a week and watch my daughter for a total of 8 hours while I am at work. Question to any other parents out there who have done this before or know someone who has, what is the going rate or what do you think a fair hourly rate would be? Most of the ladies I have talked to are stay-at-home-mom's who will be coming into my home to watch both my child and her own. Nothing outside the scope of childcare will be required of them other than picking up after themselves. All food and drinks will be provided. I'm at a loss as to where to begin my wage negotiations.
Thanks to anyone who replies. ;)

Pumpkin Patch's?
I'm in Federal Way/Tacoma and am wondering if you all can suggest any Pumpkin Patch's around?

For the rest of you, maybe reply with Patch's that you know of in your area? That'd be neat!

I would especially love personal recommendations to places you've been and liked or disliked. If you wanted to elaborate, that would be swell too!
