Hi Jennifer - We just had our first visit at Dr. Udelson's Pediatric Dentistry office.  the staff is wonderful and the office is fun for kids while they wait to be seen!

Hi Moms,

We are new to the OP area and looking to get our 19-month son, Mason, involved in some mom/child playgroups.  Any suggestions on how to connect with other SAHM moms? Thanks!

Hi everyone,

We moved to Oak Park about a year ago and we're expecting our first child in October.  We're interested in a daycare or home daycare starting around January in the Oak Park area, and would appreciate any suggestions or insights.  Also, please let me know if there are any expectant moms groups in the neighborhood.  Thanks!  You can message me at

Hey Mary!

We are in the same situation also. We just moved to Oak Park and we have a 14 month old son. We didn't have any friends in the area, let alone friends with children. I ended up joining some moms groups and have found some great moms to hang out with and playdates for our son.

If you want, you can contact me on my email to discuss!

Good luck!

I still take my girls into the city to see their doc at NMPG Pediatrics. The staff is outstanding. We just make a day of it. There is children's barber shop is opening on Marion St. soon. It's going to be called Lemonmade and it opens July 23. It seems like it will be very nice and I plan to support local business and give them a try.
