**** IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE JOINING ****
Meetup.com has changed how new applicants are added to our group through an Approve/Decline system. For the safety of our members and their children, we still require those women wanting to join SW MOMs to meet with a group organizer in a public setting before they are approved. You will be approved only after attending one of our events listed below.
Please answer all required profile questions and email me to join. I will then contact you via text message for all future communication.
Are you interested in becoming a part of a playgroup in the southwest suburbs? Getting out of the house with your little one(s)? Participating in fun, memorable trips and get togethers with other moms that can relate to you?
I know I am!
I am looking for other moms who would like to meet up with our young children at each others' homes, parks, plan trips to fun places in the area and make friends. There is no other bond like the one moms share.
I am a 30-ish year old stay-at-home mom of four. This group is open to moms of any age with a young child or children in the southwest Chicagoland area.
New Member Initiation:
There are two types of meetups you can attend to join our group:
- The first is a MNO/MDO (Mom’s Night Out/Mom’s Day Out). These events will be held at a local restaurant. They are for adults only, a way for us to relax and enjoy our time without our children. We do allow breastfeeding and/or non-mobile babies, under 1 year old, at these events.
-The second type of event is a playdate, where children of any age are welcome to join. The playdates are an alternative meet-up for moms, and kids, when moms choose not to attend MNO/MDO out event. These are held at free, public, child-friendly venues on the first Monday evening and last Saturday (daytime) of every month.
These events take place at varying times, on different days throughout the month in the vicinity of Orland Park/Tinley Park, so one should work with your schedule. We also meet this way for the safety of our group since it is based online.
An email with the dates and times of all events will be sent to you via text message or email by an organizer once you've submitted your application to join this group.
Those wanting to join SW MOMs will receive communication from an organizer by text message/email before the event with the address of the location, the name of the organizer hosting the event and a contact phone number of the host.
If you cannot make the event due to circumstances beyond your control, please call the host of the event as soon as possible. If you do not show up at the event you have chosen to attend, your name will be taken off our list and we will not contact you any further.

NOTE: We, as a group, are peanut and tree nut free for all home playdates. We have children in our group with severe nut allergies so no foods with nuts or processed in a facility with nuts are allowed at playdates. Mom's Night In's, are subject to the hosts rules (in their home).
Please add my email address, email@example.com, to your contacts, so my initial email to you does not get sent to your spam folder. I will be sending this initial email to the address linked to your meetup account.
