Hi! My name is Nora and I am mom to two kids (7 and 4). While I grew up in Alexandria, I don't have many friends with kids of similar ages, or much less are raising them alone. I'm looking forward to meeting new people!
We are a network of fellow single parents for fun and support within Alexandria (including Alexandria City and the "Alexandria" in Fairfax County). The purpose of the group is to meet others in similar situations and be an outlet for fun and support.
We get together for adult+kids events and adult only events. Whatever it is, it'll be fun, easy, and simple. Our lives are complicated enough so we try to keep everything as simple as possible. :)
The only requirement is that you're a single parent, with children (under 18) and that you'd like to meet other single parents who have children living at home. Ideally, you live in Alexandria as well so you don't have to schlep your kids across town.
Our kids range in ages from 9 months to 19. We try to plan a variety of events that include a wide variety of ages -- playground trips, batting cages, local band concerts and more.
Please note: if you have an event you think would be of interest to our group but are not a single parent, please email an organizer and request to have it posted. We are always looking for great things to do but want to limit the membership of the group to actual single parents.
