Okay, so I am not a mom...yet. I just wanted to let you all know that we have lots of space for a Mom meetup and we also have our Lunch Special "Any TWO Arepas and a fountain drink for 8.75". We are always happy and willing to accomodate small or large groups with room to move along. We also have the fountain in front if the tots want to play in it.

Hello -

I live in Oak Park and am looking for a babysitter for three children, ages 4, 7, and 10, for 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. daily and over school breaks. I will consider everyone from junior or senior highschool students, college students, grandmothers, people in between jobs, etc. Also, we currently have a wonderful full time babysitter that will be looking for a full time position in the fall. So, please let me know if anyone has any part-time babysitter recommendations, or if anyone is looking for a full-time babysitter.

Thank you.

There's a new dance studio on Madison and Home, Ogletree Dance Studio. I haven't checked it out yet, but Shaunda Ogletree, the owner, used to teach some kids' dance classes for the OP Park District and my daughters LOVED her. It looks like there are classes for adults too! Here's her web site:
And here's the Facebook page:

Just wanted to let you know my friend has been trying to get a group of kids together to introduce them to the game of GO! She's doing this in her studio, Creative Changes @ 140 Harrison Street on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:30. I just listed it under events for her. She only charges $2.00 per child. This is more a community events type offering, than a money making venture. More info can be found here:

The River Forest library has posted a bunch of upcoming family friendly events. You might want to check them out.

A meetup group I'm in is hosting this & I thought you might be interested. Not sure whether there's a place for garage sales to list on the site.

Multi Family Garage Sale organized by local mom's group. Children's clothes and toys, jewelry, small furniture, craft items, women's clothing, fish tank, antiques: 1143 S. Scoville, Oak Park. Saturday 6/5 8am - 2pm

Personally, I have a pair of figure skates & roller blades, a nice Columbia winter coat (2 parts), and other household items. Enjoy!

I just LOVE Jumps N Jiggles at the Elk Grove Village park district! It's a great indoor play area directly connected to an indoor carousel - a real, beautiful old-school carousel. The play area is like a glorified McDonald's play space and everything is so clean and the staff are nice. Only $3.50 per child, free parking, and you can get a coupon for buy 1/get 1 free. Hours are 10-12 and 1-3 M-F. I couldn't believe I brought my twin 2 year olds for 2 hours for only $3.50 - they had a blast and so did I. Check it out!!
