We're not the only family downtown. Not hardly.

Today I had coffee with a family that lives in the Douglas lofts. They have two kids, a two-year-old girl and a five-month-old boy. Turns out there are seven families in the Douglas alone (soon to become eight as a woman in the building is pregnant) and there are lots of other families in the neighborhood as well. It was so great to get the inside scoop on raising kids downtown.

It turns out there are a lot of good daycare/preschools downtown that serve the government workers in the area, so we won't have to commute out of the area when Kidlo is old enough to start school. We also got a lot of great tips about where to shop, fun stuff to do with kids, etc. The mom is going to have some other families over during our next visit so we can meet more people, and we're planning on having them over our place for dinner. So yay, looks like we're finally connecting with other families. It was fun and Kidlo had a great time playing with their daughter.
