Mom's Night Out - Dec 8

The next Mom's Night Out will be this Wednesday, December 8th at 7:00pm at Tornado's Restaurant.


Christmas Party - December 17th

Last week at diaper gym we talked about having a Christmas party this year. We settled on Friday, December 17th - regular diaper gym time and location. I talked to the minister, and the 17th shouldn't conflict with any church teas or functions.

Last year one of the dads volunteered to be Santa, and we each brought a small wrapped gift for our own children for Santa to give. We put a $5 limit on the gift to keep it fair for the kids.

If we're going to do Santa again this year, we will need a dad, grandpa, or uncle, to volunteer to be Santa. If you know of anyone who might be willing to do this, please ask them and then let me know ASAP. We'll do Santa at 10:30am so we're not rushed, and will still have lots of time for cleanup.

We'll also need a Santa suit. If you have one, or know of someone who has one that we could borrow that would be awesome!! Again, let me know ASAP.

If we can't find these things, we'll still do a Christmas party, but without Santa.
This went over exceptionally well last year, so we're hoping to do it again!

The other thing we usually do is bring food and goodies to share. In years past we've had cookies, dainties, fruit, etc. If anyone wants to bring anything, maybe reply and let me know what you'd like to bring and we'll make a note of it just so that we don't have monstrous amounts of food. Not that monstrous amounts of food is a bad thing. But still. :)

Hope to see everyone this week. If you have any feedback or ideas for the Christmas party, let me know!

This Friday, October 29th - there will be no diaper gym. The hall is closed for a church function.

We'll do our diaper gym 50/50 raffle draw next Wednesday, November 3rd. Please try and get your tickets sold and returned by that day! I think we're actually doing quite well selling our tickets. Imagine if we could sell them all?

mom's night - oct 8

We're planning a Mom's Night Out at Boston Pizza's Lounge next Friday, October 8th at 7:00pm. Let me know if you think you might be able to make it!

We're also fund raising right now. We're selling 50/50 tickets. They're $2 each, and the prize will be as much as $300! I'll have them with me at diaper gym, so let me know if you'd like some or if you need more. The draw date is the last Friday in October.

We facebook too! Look HERE for the facebook page. Be sure to sign up as a member, or leave a comment, post a picture, bake some brownies . . .

I'm compiling a diaper gym phone list. Other years people have wanted everyone's names and numbers to make it easier to set up play dates or meet up outside of diaper gym. I've been adding people to the list again this year and will distribute it shortly (probably by email). Let me know if for any reason you'd like to be left off the list.

No worries - the phone list will NOT be posted on the blog or the facebook page.

first week wrap-up

Our Diaper Gym open house week has wrapped up! It's been a fantastic week, we've met a number of new families, oohed and aahhed over each others cute kids and had a few good visits! I hope everyone had a good time and will join us this year!

We are always happy to have new moms, dads and kids in our diaper gym group - feel free to join at any time throughout the year, and to come by first and check us out before officially registering.

Again, we meet Monday, Wednesday and Fridays at St. Mary's Hall (address above) from 9:30- 11:30 over the school year.

Welcome Back!

I can't believe how far into September we are already. Most peoples' kids are in school already, except mine, but she'll start Monday, so all is good!

Diaper Gym starts back up next week. We'll begin with an open house - we won't register anyone or collect fees next week (Sept 13 - 17). The annual fee will be $25 again this year.

As usual, Diaper Gym will be open September through June, and closed on stat holidays. We'd love some input from everyone, new members and old, as to what kind of activities and toys you'd like to see here this year! We're going to do a 50/50 raffle in September and October with the hopes of grabbing a few new toys and craft supplies.

Our year will again include Christmas and Halloween parties, a few planned activities, and of course lots of Mom's Nights Out!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
