New to Cafe Mom and not quite getting it yet

Hello. I am brand new to Cafe Nom and know next to nothing about it except everybody seems so very friendly.  I did notice ii it appeared to be geared to moms with children still young and at home, then I saw this group and wanted to try it.  I did post a question I have been asking people for a month and when I asked it on Cafe Mom I got 18 replies by the next day.  Then in today's newspaper, in all the gazillion sales was a picture of it where I was going to go over the weekend.  But the response was so huge from Cafe Mom.  I plan to stay a while until I at least know what I am doing, too bad there isn't a manual.

I thank all of you who have been most gracious to welcome me and you all sound like nice nice people.

Hello and welcome to the group.  CM has all sorts of groups geard to just about every aspect of Momhood.  There are groups with younger moms, older moms, mom's who are empty nesters.  We have groups geared towards moms of different cultures and religions.  There are groups for moms who cook, and groups for moms who are domestically challenged.  Groups for moms who have pets, groups for young new moms and groups for "old" new moms, groups for grandmothers raising grandchildren, step mom groups there are also groups for moms with chronic illnesses or handicaps.  One thing we all have in common is that at some point in our lives we've been a mom so we all dealt with the issues of being moms and we all share those expierences.  Again I welcome you and enocourage you to check out the many other groups here on CM

Good morning, Edlo!  Moms With Adult Kids is the only group I go to now.  I feel I've made many friends here - Hurricane Sandy took out Cafe Mom's servers for about a week and I hadn't realized until then how much I really enjoy being here!  This group is supportive, friendly, and tells it like it is.  Some don't agree with others but hey, it takes all kinds to make the world go around! 

I am looking forward to getting to know you.  Tell us more about you, your kids, etc.  And welcome to our group!

welcome to Cafemom and the group. You'll get the hang og things eventualy. I have been a member from almost the very begining and I still get lost sometimes LOL. Especialy when they decide to change something. 

There are groups for pretty much everything here. If you are looking for a group with a particular intrest all you have to do is type a keyword/keywords of something you are interested in and it will bring up a list of groups. Most of the groups here are very friendly.
