Where did 2013 go? I do not know about you, but I am looking forward to 2014! While most of the country is shoveling snow, we can actually schedule a “beach play date”! If you are new to the area or looking to join a moms group, check out Chula Vista East Moms Group on meetup.com. They are a wonderful group of supportive moms who enjoy scheduling playdates, MNO, community service activities, and much more.
