Geek Parents Get Together with Spawn

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Being a parent of a toddler, I'm finding it very hard to get any decent geek time in. I'd love to get together and have a playdate for both the little people and the big people. God knows how it would go, but I have this vision of the kids playing while we actually got a board game out. Or I was thinking we could make Gagh, just because cooking, kids, and eating worms all go so well together.

    The Madison children's museum is free for families the first Wednesday of the month from 5-8 pm. If anyone is interested we could maybe put something together for March or April.

    It looks like there is starting to be some more interest in this. I was thinking about trying to find something that kids would be welcome at. I don't have weekends off though. Is anybody interested in something on a weekday evening?

    My wife and I just moved to madison with our 18 mo son and would love to connect w other parents/families. Best times would be on the weekend in the mid am or late afternoon. We typically hit the zoo, children's museum and central library at those times.

    Laura,
    In the future, I can set this up so you can edit the meetup AFTER you figure out a date/time etc. - or I can do it for you. Just let me know.

    My husband is a stay at home dad and we have a 6 month old. We're trying to meet people in the area with kids.

    Also, I have a weird work schedule but my wife stays at home with our daughter. She'd probably be up for any day.

    I'd definitely be interested. My wife and I have been trying to meet people with similar interests. But, like everything else, kids put a damper on options. We have an 8 and 4 year old so they might be a little older.
