I absolutely LOVE my Mother's group!! I met them at our local Early Childhood Centre when Lachie was born. We have shared lots of ups and downs together and have been able to laugh together as we walk (or stumble) down the path of parenthood. I feel very blessed to have such a great group of women around me during this journey
As Mum's we are always doing things for our kids/husbands and we rarely have time to do something for ourselves. So... I wanted to do something for each one of the Mum's in my mother's group... just for them! Not their kids, not their husbands/partners... JUST because they are worth my time and love.
I roped in another Mum from the group and we got to work. It was a surprise event, so no one knew what we were doing. We designed/made and sent out invites and then went to work making the event super special. We went out for dinner at a local restaurant. These are some of the things we did...
|I made each of the Mum's a set of earrings with their favourite colours.|
|We made chocolate filled boxes/place tags|
|We asked each of the Mum's to answer a set of 'get to know you' questions then made them into a book.|
|We also made paper scrolls for each of the Mum's which had a poem written by Janet and a letter written by me explaining the reason for the evening. That was my favourite part. The Mum's were so touched by the encouraging words that were written.|
Ok... that's all for now... :)
