Wow. I am not a very timely blogger. I’ll get better I promise!
This last month has been a busy one — which is awesome! I started a new group in Vancouver for moms and moms-to-be called the Vancouver Mommies Group. Check it out at www.myspace.com/vancouvermommiesgroup. It’s doing really good things for moms in this area. Here’s what we’re about! -
Who we are
The Vancouver Mommies Group was started by 2 mommies (and 1 friend, not a mommy yet, but a children’s photographer) that felt that Vancouver needed a place for moms to join together – without the drive across the bridge.
1. A place to vent.
This is number 1 because we feel that it is the most important. We know how frustrating and hard life can be some days with one or more little lives completely dependent on you. Your mental health is so vital to your child’s upbringing. Please use this page to share frustrations, read about others’ issues, give advice, and receive words of wisdom. Use the comments as a reader board or you can also message us and we’ll post it as a bulletin for others to respond to.
We love love new things! Be it new ways to keep our children happy, new healthy yummy recipes, tips on how to get your figure back, or how to successfully potty train your 2 year old…post it all! Again, just leave a comment, or email it to us and we’ll post a collection of tips and secrets as a weekly bulletin.
Some of you may be new to this area and don’t have many friends. Or others may be young mothers and all your friends are still in the “party” stage. Whatever your situation may be, use this page to connect with others like you and gain valuable relationships! We also talked about hopefully putting together a monthly get-together at local venues or even group members houses if everyone likes that idea! We can talk more about that later though…
Eventually (when the group grows to a good number) we’re going to start featuring local companies, vendors, and publications, as well as helpful (or just fun and awesome!) links and national “mommy news”. We’re really excited about this aspect, to do our part in furthering the local economy and give Vancouver mothers the convenience of in-town services! Always nice!
If you, family, or friends own family-oriented Vancouver area businesses let us know! We’ll feature it in an upcoming bulletin!
5. Finally, we’d like this page to be a place to smile.
