I have a new infant and I'm looking to join a mom group to make some friends for my son, and some parent friends for myself. I've done some research, and a lot of the mom groups around town, at least to me, give off a bit of a stuffy atmosphere.
Time and time again I've had people make comments about my colorful hair, or piercings, or interest in things like gaming and comic books and how I might need to "grow up" since becoming a parent. I'm looking for a group where parents can get together and discuss everything from child-rearing to video games with the same enthusiasm, and without judgement.
If you're a mom with tattoos, or piercings, or nerdy interests, or anything else that you would consider "alternative" and you're looking for like-minded individuals to discuss parenting or anything else, I'd love to hear from you!
I'm hoping to get the ball rolling on this by around April. My plan would be to meet a couple times a month where we would discuss home life with our children and general support and friendship, just like any other mom group. I'd also like to plan group activities with and without children, set up group date nights with partners (and include nights for our single parents as well), recipe swaps, and perhaps even book discussions - the world is our oyster!
The group would be all inclusive, so whether you're REALLY into to Star Wars or you're two dads raising a family, I want to see YOU, and discuss how we can raise the next generation with open mindedness and unafraid to be themselves!
