The first MOMs of 2017 will be Thursday, January 19! Hope to see you there!
Following up from our discussion this morning, I am posting links to a couple of the articles I mentioned:
The book I mentioned was by Alison Gopnik and is called: The Gardener and the Carpenter: What the New Science of Child Development Tells Us About the Relationship Between Parents and Children
If you don’t feel like reading the whole book, there’s an article about it here:
Or you can listen to an interview with the author by Michael Enright on CBC here:
The other book that came up in discussion was The 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary D. Chapman and Ross Campbell.
You can now view the schedules for MOMs, as well as the snack and Spark sign-ups, located on the menu above. There are still a few spots available on the sanck sign-up, so if you’re interested, contact me!
Hi MOMs! Welcome back from a long break – we are going to be up and running with the first session on Thursday, September 22, 2016. I will be posting the schedule as soon as it is finalized. Check out the link “All About Moms” in the menu above if you forget details regarding time, drop-off, etc. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
We are going to be having a coffee talk this week to continue mulling over last weeks fantastic session with Guest Speaker Melissa Miller, and what ever else comes up.
Oh and delicious hot beverages.
This week Sandy is coming back to visit, and tickle our noodles about organizing our lives, our meals, de-cluttering, etc.
There will also be a grocery shop of last weeks items that where unable to be returned.
In the midst of a deep freeze, what better way to take advantage than make up some freezer meals.
This week we will meet in the basement for the usual coffee and snack, then head upstairs to do some chopping and assembling.
If you have a favourite recipe and want to share, bring a print out or send a link to firstname.lastname@example.org
Heidi has been pinning up a storm and has some great ideas here
It’s suggested $5 per tasty meal. The planned meals are as follows:
- Chicken Teriyaki
- Lentil Butternut Squash Curry, and
- Black Bean Chili
What’s also great is these meals can be made in a pot on the stove if you don’t have a slow cooker.
Other things that maybe be useful to bring:
- Favourite knife
- Can opener
- Onion-cutting goggles
It’s a tough topic, but how do we teach our kids to be comfortable in their bodies?
Come and talk about it!
