Metrocrest Parents of Multiples offers an opportunity to make
connections and share what at times can be overwhelming and, at other
times, deeply gratifying experience of raising multiples.
It has truly enriched my parenting experience. Prospective members can
enjoy two events before joining MPOM at any time.
Please email me at email@example.com if you have any questions or would
like to know more. We hope you join our community!
General Meetings: MPOM typically meets at 7:30pm on the second Thursday of each month at Faith Lutheran Church/Day School (Click here for a map). Special events in May (Installation Dinner), June (planning meeting), September (Fall BBQ) and December (Christmas Party) are held in various locations. On the agenda after club announcements, you'll find a variety of educational and dynamic speakers ranging from Marriage Counselors, nutritionists, and speech therapists to interior decorators, child proofing specialists, and pediatricians all ready to share valuable knowledge with you!
Nearly Newlies: If you are currently pregnant with multiples or are the proud parent of multiples under the age of 1, we invite you to attend Nearly Newlies. Discover tricks and tips for surviving and thriving through the first year in this small, informal Q&A group that provides a forum for expectant parents to exchange information and get their questions answered by those who’ve been through it. You do not need to be a member to attend Nearly/Newlies. It meets at 7:00 pm before the general meeting in room D105.
Online Community: If getting out of the house is a rarity for you, we invite you to take advantage of our online community on BigTent.com where we exchange tips and advice! BigTent offers us a place to communicate and keeps us organized through forums, the "daily buzz", group calendars, online classifieds and event reminders.
Children's Socials: MPOM offers at least one Children's Social per month, ranging from park or mall play dates to a fire station tour to an activity at a member's home! In addition, we have several family-friendly parties each year. These events are the biggest all club events each year and aren't to be missed! Each theme party has various activities for all ages of children from babies on up! Some of these events are completely paid for by member dues, others require a nominal fee. Splash Bash, Snowflake Festival, Spring Fling, Pumpkin Party and more!
Mom's Night Outs/ Retreat: Ready for some time away from your kiddos with other moms who know what your life is like? Join us for our monthly Mom's Night Outs! These activities range from Pedicures & Mexican Food to Wine Tastings to dinners at area restaurants. Also our annual overnight retreat at the Gaylord Texan is just the right amount of time and distance away to feel like a mini vacation! Spa services, pool time, dinner out...need I say more?
Service: Whether it is cooking and delivering a meal for a new bleary eyed Mother of Multiples, stuffing NICU Survival Bags, making blankets for needy babies, or dropping off a bag of goodies for a member on bed rest, we are looking for ways to give back and make life easier for each other. If you have a heart for service MPOM has opportunities for you to help other MoMs in need.
Fundraising: We have a fabulous professional photography fundraiser twice a year that helps raise money for the club and gives members the opportunity to have beautiful family pictures taken at a great price!
