I had a group like this in my neighborhood in Seattle, and found it was a great way to find out about local events, get advice on preschools, get info on doctors, local services, retailers and products, give and receive advice, share discipline tips, etc.... I hope to create a similar group here in Gig Harbor.
The group is called Gig Harbor Moms, and the website to join is: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GigHarborMoms
Hope to "see" you there! Please share with your GH friends!
