Hi, my name is B., I'm 25 and we moved to AZ about a year and a half ago from North Carolina, my husband is in the Army. He works very long hours, six days a week usually. I have three wonderful kids that I adore but they don't exactly hold lasting conversations, if ya know what I mean. I'm bored and lonely, to say the least. My kids are 7(girl), 4(boy), and 1(girl), so I was wondering if anyone else had any kids about the same age, that would like to get together and hang out. I live in Gilbert, I just want to have an adult conversation with someone other than my mother, lol.

What can I do next?

Hi B.,
My name is A., and I know excatly where you are coming from. We just moved here 3 months ago and don't know to many people. Always look forward to meeting up with other moms. Haven't had the chance to get out much, being so busy with my two kids, and things around the house. My kids are my whole world and I love being able to stay home with them, but I miss the adult interaction, my husband also works a lot of long hours. It would be great for my son to have little buddies of his own too. He will be four at the end of June, and I have a baby girl who is seven months old. I'm 30 and we live in Gilbert. So thats just a little about me. It would be great to hangout sometime.

Luckily in phoenix there are a lot of MOM's clubs. I live in awatukee (Awatukee MOM's)...so google the gilbert MOM's club, it depends on your address but it's a good link with moms...non secular and mostly young sah/pt moms. Definately get the kids involved in some summer programs since it will be your first summer here and it gets really hot AND really BORING for kids your age. Good luck!

Hi B.,

I am also an active duty Army wife and we moved here almost a year ago from Ft Huachuca. I live in Mesa and I have a 1 year old girl also. If you ever need to talk to someone who understands the Army life, I'm here. And I will have lots of time since my husband leaves for Iraq next month! But I agree with everyone else... join an active moms group through one of the sites mentioned. It will help you make friends, since it's definitely not as easy to do here as when you're on an Army post. I have also met several of my neighbors by hanging around outside in the evenings. :-) Take care! M.

Hi!
I help lead a tiny SAHM'S club (lol) at my church. During the summer we are planning to do Fridays from 10-12. sometimes we meet at the church (Mesa First Church of the Nazarene at Stapley and University) and some times we meet out in the community, like the youth museum, McDonalds, etc. If you're interested you can e-mail me so I'll know to keep you updated on where we'll be.

Hi B.,

I agree with some of the other responses, you should join a moms group! I became a SAHM last summer (almost a year now!) and was worried about being bored and not knowing what to do with myself and my daughter all day. We joined soon after I resigned from my job and have loved every minute of it! The group is called The East Valley Hip Mamas and it is through meetup.com, the website is: http://hipmama.meetup.com/158/

Read the Welcome & About Us pages to see if this is something you'd like to do. I think it would be benefical for you and your kids (especially with summer coming up) to get involved in a group like this. I also live in Gilbert and I don't usually have to drive too far to events. You can also do a search for other moms groups in the area through the meetup site, there are lots of groups out there! Good Luck, and believe me you are not alone. That is why there are groups like this!

Hi, I also live in Gilbert and have a 3 yr old boy and 1 yr old girl. I recommend joining MOMS Club. Check out www.momsclub.org to find your local chapter. They have activities with the kids during the day, playgroups, and Mom's Night Out once a month, plus it's just a good support and network, and it's super cheap to join (my chapter is $23/yr). I joined it when my husband starting traveling and I really enjoy it. I joined for me but my kids love the fun activities and socializing with other kids. I know so much more about things to do with kids locally now.
p.s. I know Linda Wheeler who responded below because she's in my MOMS Club. Maybe you're within our chapter's boundaries.

Check out www.momsclub.org. They have groups in many different areas and will set you up in a weekly playgroup if you want and also do weekly activities, Mom's Night out once a month and a lot more. I moved here 4 years ago and made most of my friends through the mom's club! Gilbert has a number of chapters, broken up by specific areas in Gilbert.

Don't worry - you can be as active as you want, or attend nothing if you want. When I first joined, all I wanted was a weekly playgroup, which was great. I almost never attended a meeting (nap time!) and wasn't really interested in Mom's night out, etc. Really, nothing is expected of you, but there's a ton to do if you want! There are months where I attend just about every activity and some months go by when I don't seem to attend anything. There's no pressure, just a great way to meet other moms, most of whom stay at home as well.

Please join momsclub.org. They have one in every neighborhood and it saved me when my kids were very little. They have a monthly calendar of activities and playgroups.
Good luck!
