That's 'Mamas' as in the suffix for yogi-, urban-, hip- or what a Southerner would say ... as I like Southerners, especially in February in Chicago.

Or as in "Mamas ... don't let your babies grow up to be Cowboys" ... although what the heck is wrong with Cowboys.

Formerly an 'Attachment Parenting' meet-up group.  You will find that a lot of us breastfeed, support natural childbirth, co-sleep, are into healthy living and eating and child wearing.  But we're not going to make any judgements here ...

There are hundreds of paths up the mountain all leading to the same place, so it doesn’t matter which path you take. The only person wasting time is the one who runs around the mountain, telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.  - Hindu proverb

I have known great mothers of all different philosophies.  To me, what makes a great mama, one that I want to get to know, is:

That whenever your child or children have used up your last shred of ____________(fill in the blank - energy, sanity, patience, fortitude, knowledge, etc.),  you dig a little deeper, and find more.

Only sometimes you don’t, because life is about balance, and we all need to find that balance … where we are taking care of ourselves as well as others.

Figure out what works for you.

Find your passions in life.

Find balance in family, work, play, personal, community.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
