We are a group of Middle Tennessee dads who get together every week for playgroup at an area playground -- currently Wednesdays at 10:30 am. We often meet in Nashville due to its central location, however we also visit places like Bellevue, Mt. Juliet, Franklin, Donelson, Murfreesboro, and Spring Hill depending on current members.

It's usually easy to spot us on the playground - there aren't often too many groups of men there. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please drop us a line at Nashdads@gmail.com. You can also sign up for our GroupMe text alerts below.

So Long and Thanks for all the Playgroups!

We talked about this last week, but wanted to put it out there that tomorrow is my last official playgroup as head of Nashdads.  M is starting a three day a week pre-K program, so it is time for some new blood to step up to bat.  I've asked Nate to take over organizing playgroup each week, so Steve you can direct all your complaining to him going forward.

I started attending Nashdads back in 2004, before it even had that name.  I've seen five guys before me handle organizing things and countless dads cycle in and out of our merry bunch.  Each time, the group continues to flourish and find great people - maybe because caring about your kids is kind of self selecting.  Regardless, I have no doubt this group will continue meeting when our current toddlers are teenagers and a new group of men are involved.

Thanks for letting me be a part of all this - I'll still attend when I can (and sometimes maybe just be that creepy guy on the playground with no kid), but I have valued spending time with our former and current dads and can't wait to watch as the group continues!
