Want to be a part of a group of moms who care about each other, like to have fun, love their children, and don't take themselves or life too seriously? "Yes," you say? Then you've come to the right group.

Check your worries at the door and join us with your kids for some great events such as local playdates at parks, indoor playgyms, OMSI, The Children's Museum, coffee shops, the zoo, potlucks, etc. We enjoy our monthly moms' night out together, Book Club and Bunco (There are usually 2-3 mom only events a month, which is a great way to get to know each other better without kids distracting us). We've been known to take a moms' weekend trip away...and we can't pack our bags fast enough!

Our children range in age from bun-in-the-oven to about age 7. As for the moms we are 20, 30 and 40 and it just works. Some of us are stay-at-home moms, some work part-time and some full-time.

The majority of our playdates are during the week, late morning. Most of our events are in  Clackamas, Happy Valley, Oregon City, Milwaukie, West Linn, and SE Portland. We also have our group settings set to private, so none of our event information is available to the public (for everyone's safety!). 

There are usually at least 3 playdates scheduled each week, so you will have plenty of opportunities to come hang out with us. We are a very active group!

-A current, CLOSE-UP photo of you without a hat or sunglasses is required in your application to join (does not have to include child/children). We want to be able to recognize you and meet you when you come to a meetup, so please make sure you are recognizable in your photo.

-We require an annual $6.00 fee to be paid through the meetup site, (or $5 if paying in cash in person) within your first 30 days of joining the group. (Dues are now on an automatic system, so meetup will remove any member who doesn't pay on time.) To learn more about dues, click here.

-Your first 30 days with us is a trial period to see if we are a good fit for you. You must meet, face-to-face, another active, permanent member within your first 30 days to remain in the group. Feel welcome to attend any meetups and get to know us during this period.

-We ask that you attend a meetup at least once every 3 months, but we hope to see you more often than that!

We're a tight-knit group and there's always room for you!

*All requests to join must fill out their profile completely and add a photo that meets our requirements. Unfortunately, requests that do not meet the requirements will be denied if not fixed within 10 days.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
