What happens at a monthly meeting?Alyssa Stommen 1

Our meetings are a great time to pamper yourself, learn something new or make a new friend.  It is also a place to ask questions, connect with ladies who understand and have a night out.  Babies who are breastfeeding are more than welcome to join you.  Although we have many child centric activities, these meetings are geared towards adults.

Past meetings have included:

  • Round table discussions – group discussions about relationships, thriving while parenting multiples, returning to work or becoming a stay at home parent.
  • Schooling – looking at the various school options and resources available in Kalamazoo county.
  • Twin Panel – we invite a group of older twins in to answer our questions that range from their opinions on sharing a birthday, clothes and classrooms.  It is always fun to hear their answers.Kary Mack 4
  • Questions and Answers about love and relationships
  • Fitness – We had a personal trainer come and in and teach us how to strengthen our cores.
  • Ice Cream Sundaes – We provide the ice cream, you bring the toppings.
  • Mini Garage Sale – Bring some items that you would like to sell and buy a few from another mom.  Great way to refresh your kids’ closets.
  • Wine and Canvas – Instead of competing with New Years we decided to try out Wine and Canvas later in Jan.
  • Mary Kay – We pampered ourselves and tried out new looks with a Mary Kay consultant.
