It'd be great to meet other Mums in Crouch End who have a Newborn as a second career!!
I'm 44 and have a 8 week old daughter. Having suspended a successful, stressful (and often less than enjoyable!) career to spend a year with my little one I'm really beginning to feel the need for some challenging adult company...
I'm sure there are lots of you out there, so lets meet up in one of crouch End's many Cafés and share in the trials, tribulations and joys of motherhood
I'm a little east of Crouch End in Tottenham but would be happy to jump on a 41 bus and come and meet you with my 2nd baby some time. He's almost 16 days old at time of posting this and has a brother who is just 21 months older.
Hi fistiki I have been thinking about starting a thread on here for local new, 40+ mums. I have a 13 month old boy (where did the last year go?) and am 44 years old. I've made lots of new friends since becoming a mum but most of whom are a fair bit younger. Nothing wrong in that, but would love to meet up with some mums the other side of the (not so) big 4-0.
fizzy, you're quite near us - we're on the other side of West Green Road near the roundabout where Philip Lane and West Green Road meet.
Perhaps we could try to meet up next week?
There's a nice baby group for mums with babies under 1 on Tuesday afternoons at Downhills Park Primary School, it would be nice to see other babies of C's age there. It's not on next week but let me know if you fancy coming on Tue 21 April.
I would be interested in joining all of those either pushing 40 or "past it". I have a 2 year old and a 5 month old and am in crouch end if anyone would like to meet. I can see this thread has been on the go a while though.
I'm just about to go back to work next week but will have a day off a week for a while if you'd like to try and meet up - there are groups where we could bring 2 year olds and babies on Monday afternoon (near Turnpike Lane tube) and Thursday afternoon (near me in Tottenham but very easy to get to from Crouch End).
I could certainly get down to Turnpike lane on a Monday with the baby if that suited you as toddler is in nursery or try a Thursday with them both but that would be a bit more difficult as I don't drive. Hope going back to work won't be too stressful for you. I am worrying about it already and it is months away at the moment.
