KnoxMoms.com headed up by Ali James. Knoxmoms has tons of event listings, playgroups and ways for families to connect. I highly recommend subscribing to their well worthwhile weekly email newsletter. Believe me, you will never wonder what to do on a rainy day once you have loaded your mommy toolbox with the Knoxmoms site.
Additionally, I have to remind readers about all the many activies offered by our outstanding Knox Co. library system. The library's calendar of events allows you to toggle your view between libraries and types of programs, childrens, adults, etc. Library events are often listed on Knoxmoms, as well.
Finally, especially if you've just had your first child and want to connect with other parents, I'd urge you to join a playgroup. You can find playgroups on Knoxmoms, Knoxville Mommies, Knoxville Mother's Center, and so many more and by networking at many events moms frequent, such as library reading times.
In addition to playgroups, Knoxville Mommies has message boards and public events as well.
So, get out and find some fun! And feel free to contact me if you'd like more information.
