Greetings to all our McMoms! I'm absolutely LOVING the nice spring weather but absolutely *hating* the nice spring allergies. I should be buying stock in pharmaceutical companies from February through April! So much is happening in the next few months with Easter, Spring Break, Garage Sale, and everything else sometimes we forget that we can't be supermoms ALL the time.
We have a lot of new McMoms out there who need support - and even some veterans who might need a hand! Take 10 minutes out of your day - just 10 minutes - and reach out to them and see if they need anything. Sometimes 10 minutes is all it takes to help that person who is struggling get over a rough patch. Just a reminder to breathe and realize that they are going to make it. Sometimes to me 10 minutes sounds like a lot (do I even have 10 minutes to spare?) but to someone else that few minutes is like gold.
When you see a fellow parent of multiples, seize the opportunity and talk to those people! There are many people that have no idea that a club like ours is even out there for support and friendship. Remember sitting at home not remembering if you had showered that day? Remember feeling like you were losing your mind without other adult contact? Let's make sure we reach out to help others and in return we will help our club. Thank you for being a part of our family!
So, some quick reminders of all the fun McMoms has coming in the next few months!
General meeting in March will be a Bunco night and we will also have a 50/50 raffle! We had a Bunco night last year around this time and it was TONS of fun! You don't want to miss!
Our “Easter” Spring Party is coming up the morning of March 26th from 10am - 12pm. Bring a snack to share for everyone and then we’ll have an Egg Hunt around 10:45am with the Easter Bunny following. Everybody should bring a dozen filled eggs per child that will participate in the egg hunt. Items should be individually packaged and age appropriate!
TMOM Convention is fast approaching April 7-10, so register now! This is a great opportunity to relax and meet “others like us.” Contact Sonya Derczo, our State and National Rep, if you have questions or would like more information. Several members are planning to attend - it should be a great time!
March of Dimes Walk is April 16th at 9:00am at the Panther Creek Pavillion. Please go join our March for Babies Team and help us raise money for this great cause! McMoms is trying to raise over $12,000 to beat our goal from last year.YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WALK TO HELP RAISE MONEY!!! You can find the link and information by going to our Facebook page and looking at the pinned posting from Tabatha Spiller, our fearless team captain! Our team is a family friendly group so bring the kids, significant other, extended family and neighbors to join us as we walk.
Spring Garage Sale is coming up on April 22nd and 23rd. We are once again hosting with LCMOMS at the Keller Lion's Club.
