South Fort Myers Moms consists of a close group of mothers and children who are looking to form lasting friendships for ourselves as well as our children. We are composed of working and stay at home moms, and provide a variety of activities for everyone! Kids range from newborns to 5 years old but older children are always welcome to any event! SFMM offers a range of activities including home and park playdates, crafting fun, holiday parties, and field-trips to indoor play centers, museums, the zoo, and beach. We have traditional weekday events, weekend playdates for working moms and weekend family events. And of course we will have the much needed Mom's Night Out events:)
The group has three rules!
1. Respect one another. Whether you are a working mom or stay at home mom, being a mom is not easy and we are here to provide support and friendship for one another. We all have different parenting styles and receive enough judgment and criticism in life. No gossiping or mommy drama, this is not the place!
2. Respect your hostesses. Members who have playdates in their home or craft playdates often spend time preparing materials. If you are not sure if you can make it because it is close to naptime or have errands to run, or someone may be coming down with something, leave a comment saying you are a maybe. We understand with small children things can and do come up with little warning. If something comes up please let the hostess know you will not be able to make it as soon as possible. Please check with the hostess if you would like to bring additional guests to an event:) Also, please upload a picture that clearly shows you face, this helps a hostess trying to recognize members.
3. Participate and have fun. The group's success depends upon member involvement. So come out, participate and have fun! Does you child have a favorite place he or she likes to go? Add it to the calendar as a field-trip event. Did you see a cute craft idea on Pinterest? Host a craft playdate in the park or at your home.
There is an annual fee of $10 that each member is asked to pay within the first 14 days of joining and then again every year. Dues help pay for website fees and will offset costs for those events requiring member contribution (holiday parties, craft supplies, etc..)
