Eastside Moms and Tots (Formerly Eastside New & Expecting Moms or ENEM) is a circle of true friendship and support, comprised of mothers who first gave birth in 2012 & 2013 and their toddlers/ growing infants.
We are a group of more than 30 moms who have, since June 2012, begun to form close friendships with one another. We meet at local public establishments (many have accommodations for our growing babies) and at each others' homes. In good weather, we enjoy outings in the various parks of the Eastside & Northshore. We participate in food-centered activities, community-sponsored lectures, movie nights, book clubs, game nights, craft days, moms' nights out, playdates, and more! We also support our new moms with various programs specific to our group, such as "Bring Them a Meal," and publish our very own newsletter.
All members are welcome to suggest new activities and take on a leadership role, wherever possible.
Moms with a positive outlook on life and a desire to reach out to the local community do really well in this group. The active participation of our moms and our willingness to lend a helping hand and share in each others' joys and struggles are what makes our group so successful.
This is a tight-knit, close group of mommies that are looking to build close and long lasting relationships and get together on a very frequent basis. If you haven't been to an event after 3 months, we'll assume you are no longer interested in the group so we will remove you in order to let new members join.
*Working moms: We welcome working moms to the group. Many of our members have transitioned back to working, while many other moms have stayed SAHMs. Please do note, though, that currently our calendar has many more daytime & weekday events than weeknight & weekend events. Should you join our group as a working mom, we would ask you to make a dedicated effort to attend as many activities as you can in the beginning, as we have noticed that without an emotional bond with members in the group, it is harder to find the motivation to attend an activity when work & life gets overwhelming. For any questions, please contact the organizers.
Sponsorships from the local community are both desired and invaluable to us new moms. Once we find a great business or service, we spread the word quickly! Local businesses have seen many of our moms visit & do business from our word-of-mouth referrals. (To offer Eastside Moms & Tots a membership perk, please contact the organizers directly).
Our members reside on the Eastside of Seattle (Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Sammamish, Issaquah, Woodinville), on the Northshore (Lynnwood, Bothell, Kenmore) and even extend down into northern Renton.
Note, February 11, 2014 (Current Season: CLOSED)
We are currently closed to new members, despite the fact that Meetup.com allows for new member applications to be made all year round.
If you apply during a closed season (such as now), you may not hear back from the organizers, and you may even see your application declined. Nothing personal! We are a smaller Meetup group and strive to keep it that way, so we limit our new arrivals to a small handful each open season.
