A special Mother's Day message and the first Family edition of our newsletter from the Theresa & Daniel Team!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mother’s, Grandmother’s and especially new and expecting first time mommies!
~~Two days ago~~
Theresa: Mother’s Day is coming up, we should send a message to my mom since she’s travelling right now and we won’t get to do our normal Mother’s Day brunch.
Daniel: That’s a good idea, we should also do something special here.
Theresa: You mean do something special and send a photo to her??
Daniel: No I mean for ourselves…here…
Theresa: I don’t understand, none of our Mother’s are here, in town.
Daniel: I mean for You…since you’re a Mother…
Theresa: Oh…OH!!! I’m a mother now! Mother’s Day is about me!!
What a wonderful reminder by my dear partner about the changes in our lives, joy of everything first time and the significance of this day which takes on a new meaning for us as a new family. Cheers!
Movies for Mommies
This month we’ve discovered Movies for Mommies! What a treat to have somewhere to go with the little one where no one is going to mind if your baby screams his head off, or you need to whip out the nursing / feeding supplies.
Movies for Mommies is a revelation – lowered / equalized volume in the movie theatre so the little guy’s ears are not traumatized, dimmer lighting for snoozeability, and mostly just the comfort of knowing I can go out and be somewhere in public and not be considered a disturbance or in the way. (Also there are apparently giveaways at some events, where better to advertise and find a captive audience of a very specific demographic!)
So let me know if you’re planning on indulging for an afternoon and I’ll come with you! Check out the showtimes below.
Movies for Mommies – The Original Parent & Baby Film Event
MFM is an afternoon of decadence for you to enjoy in a baby friendly way. What does that mean? All our films run with reduced sound levels, loud enough to hear, but soft enough to protect sensitive little ears. If it’s your first time taking your little film critic to see a movie, here is some info to make you’re outing awesome.
- Arrive a few minutes early so you have time to receive your membership card, and all your free samples
- Don’t be shy! If you don’t have a friend to go with, lots of moms come with their babies and meet other new moms at the show
- Dad’s & Grandparents are people too! MFM welcomes all parents, grandparents, friends and caregivers.
- Splurge – that theatre popcorn is SO good, treat yourself. Enjoy the show!
