Honest Toddler

Is your preshus snowflake getting on your nerves today? Take five minutes and read some Honest Toddler. For example: How To Do Laundry. It’s one of those trendy-viral things that is pretty funny right now, so join me on the bandwagon and giggle along. (I actually think the twitter feed is funnier – you can just read the page if you don’t have a twitter account.)

UPDATED! This Week Is At…

Bethel! So it doesn’t matter if it’s still raining. Is anyone else realizing how spoiled we were by the glorious early spring?

Update: Kathy from the church office phoned me to ask if the Lower Lounge could be used by another group tomorrow for a special function. Since it’s supposed to be a glorious day, I said that would be fine and we’ll play outside instead. So see you at the park outside instead!

This Week Is At…

The nature playground at Assiniboine Park! I happen to think that the new setup is beyond cool, so we’ll probably head over there a few times. As usual, we’ll meet around 10, but keep in mind that hotspots like this one can be busy, so do what you need to do (bring backup or a baby containment unit like a stroller or carrier, pack extra-cool treats to use as bribes, etc).

This Week Is At…

Bethel! But if we have as many kids, especially active older ones, I suggest getting coffee and heading outside to play on the grass or the play structure on the corner. It got a bit chaotic last time, and this weather is too amazing to waste in my opinion. Of course, the beauty of Summer MOMs is that we’re super flexible, so show up and we’ll work it out from there.

Can You Help?

Danielle from our group has landed a new job (YAY!) but it’s put them in a tricky spot in terms of childcare (BOO!). She’s looking for someone to watch her son Grady on Mondays and Tuesdays until the middle of June. If you’d like to know more, please get in touch with her (or email us and we’ll put you in touch).
