We are currently not adding new members to our group. We like to keep our member number small so that our children and ourselves can form great friendships. Meetup does not give us the option to turn off the join group option so just be aware that you will stay in our pending member area until we open this back up to more members. We will likely be adding more members later this summer as we have some members moving.
Parenting is hard work! Some days we feel like we have it all together, and some days we don’t. The important thing is to know that we are not alone! This is a group of supportive Mommies that understand being a mother isn’t just about diapering, feeding, napping and cleaning – it’s also about creating memories, fueling little imaginations and having fun doing it!
We believe it is important to create safe environments for our children that allow them to interact, play, learn and make friends. It is just as important for Mommies to have these things too. We are here for friendship, advice, support and fun!

Please see our http://www.meetup.com/totsandtykes/about/ for more information.
We try to have events almost every day of the week and while we require active participation for membership, no one is expected to attend all, or even half, of these activities. It is of utmost importance to keep our group safe and maintain the privacy of our message board so members can feel comfortable posting/attending events. With that in mind, the group Organizers will approve all memberships prior to gaining access to the site.
