What we're about
Got MoM grew out of the desire to connect with other moms and share common experiences. I am a mommy to a wonderful energetic 6 yr old and an adventurous 1 yr old, with that come lots of trial and errors. As I go through this awesome journey of parenthood I also can't seem to forget that I am an adult and let's face it we need to interact with other adults from time to time. I wanted to form a group where moms like me can come together and discuss what really goes on in our daily lives. We are currently transitioning to becoming a Christian-Faith based group. A group that is NON-DENOMINATIONAL and open to ALL parents who would like to fellowship with new or mature parents in their faith. We believe the body of Christ is large and therefore not confined to a particular denomination or religion. This is NOT a religious group, we're just parents who value Love, Respect , and Compassion for one another and would like to share God's Love. So if you have children ages 0-7 yrs and need a place to share, have fun and meet other people who just understand... Got MoM is the group for you! We have park play-dates, weekend activities, Parents Night Outs, meetups for Bible Study and of course activities and events that your whole family can attend. Once a month we'll meet with our children for activities and projects, schedule for these activities TBA. I am a former teacher so I know how important it is for our little ones to socialize and make friends :-D.
Like many of you I was so excited and ready to have fun with my little one. As a teacher I have wonderful memories of all the fun I had with the children I worked with. I wanted to have those same memories and experiences with my son at the time. 4 years ago I decided to start a Mom group with just my friends. We would meet for activities, and of course MNO (mom's night out). We decided to open our group up and register on this website, in hopes of meeting positive and great parents.
OUR ACTIVITIES/ PLAY DATES:
Our play dates and activities usually take place during the week around 10:30am. We LOVE parks especially the ones in our communities, however we don't always stay local. I do not take roll, I totally understand how busy our lives can be as parents. Some of the weekend events on our calendar are not "hosted" by anyone in particular but are added in order to share events around our community. Please make sure that your schedule allows for morning events we wouldn't like for anyone to feel left out. The whole family is welcome to attend any activity on the calendar. We enjoy keeping our children engaged with fun activities therefore a special craft might be included in the play date. You may see the following Meetups on our calendar; Parks, In-Door playgrounds, Bible Studies, Museums, Zoo's, Moms Night Out Etc.. The more fun the better! Our groups MAIN goal is to create wonderful and fun experiences for our children so a POSITIVE attitude is a must.
POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT (A.K.A DRAMA FREE ZONE) [:D
One imperative point I want to stress is that we are a positive group with parents who are caring and respectful towards each other. Our main goal is to have FUN and make lasting positive experiences for our children and ourselves. Our group is open to anyone who is creative, fun and caring, and who shares Gods love with others. We welcome members and organizers from other groups. Ideas and suggestions are highly welcomed and encouraged. Our calendar is open to all members, this way everyone has a an input on the activities scheduled.
