What made you decide to join?

Sounds like a great group for us. I actually considered organizing a Meetup myself for people who want to socialize and bring their kids along. I don't mind getting a sitter from time to time, of course, but I already work full time, so I'm already missing a lot of time with my daughter. I'm SO excited about this gorgeous weather we've been having and have thoroughly enjoyed wandering around out there at various events (St. John's Bizarre Saturday, and NE Parkways today), but missed having some people to talk with (adult people or even other kid people).

How old is your kiddo?

She'll be 2 in July.

What do you do for work?

I work in Software technology (Quality assurance and technical writing).

What are most interested in with regards to this meetup group?

I'm really hoping to make some friends that like having our kids around. I'm also single, of course, so the potential to meet someone who may know someone who knows someone whose brother is single and nice and cute haha. That is a plus. But mainly, Chlöe and I just want to put roots down and make Portland our home and make some connections. Looking forward to making some friends. :)


I'm Mishka and moved to Portland in Dec 2011 with my little girl, Chlöe (2 in July). I am a single Mama and work full time. I love Portland so far and our life is full and fun, but a little lonely since we're new in town and still meeting people.
