I recently started a meetup group for parents that have their own business or are stay at home parents. Sometimes being a stay at home dad makes it challenging to find social activities to do with the kids especially if they’re not in school yet, or if you’re planning to do home schooling.
We’ve thought about doing home-schooling, but we’re yet undecided. Claire would officially start school next year so we have some time. Oliver has a long way to go.
I know I’m not the only dad in Irvine, or Orange County that feels this way about finding activities that aren’t expensive or totally restrictive. So I decided to start the meetup. I know there are a few other groups already but I think the focus is different and this will be a good group for work at home parents to join. The meetup is also not exclusive to moms as many other groups are; moms and dads are welcome!
If you’d like to check it out, go to Meetup and find the group here. We’re going to focus on playtime activities, crafts and hopefully some excursions or little field trips around Orange County. We’ve got our first two meetups scheduled already!
