At the end of March Cape Cod Moms in conjunction with Jessica Hayes of Pixie Vacations and the staff of Wicked Restaurant in Mashpee held a Moms Night Out.
We had a great group in attendance with new faces as well as a few repeats from our prior night out on the Lower Cape. It was so great to see everyone and get a chance to unwind while enjoying some food and drinks.
Michael Catania represented Wicked Restaurant by offering some sampling of their famous gourmet pizzas. Wicked shops for fresh ingredients for their pizzas from many of the local farmers including an organic farm in Falmouth! He also explained the process of the gluten free pizza's, which made quite a few moms in attendance very happy. Our server was outstanding and attentive. Thank you to the whole Wicked Team for such a great time!
Vacation and Disney Expert extraordinaire Jessica Hayes was up next. She gave us some great information on planning your Disney vacations. She is our resident Cape Cod Mom Disney expert and can provide amazing feedback and tips based on your family, children's ages and your needs. Her services are 100% free to utilize and she is always available to help our local moms! We strongly suggest using Jessica for any Disney booking needs. The moms in attendance found her informative and she answered a lot of questions! Jessica was also kind enough to provide some fabulous door prizes as well as information for everyone in attendance!
The evening was definitely an informative and relaxing time. It gave us a chance to get out on a cold, dreary night in the middle of March and mingle with friends old and new. Cape Cod Moms made some great connections and also has some leads for future events! We hope as the weather becomes warmer, more of you will join us at these events. As many of you have heard us say before, we may all come from different paths of life but we all have a common thread, and that is raising our children in the best way we can with support from our community because YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
If you know of any local businesses or owners who would like to become involved with us, let us know and we will reach out to them!
Our next Upper Cape Event will be on Saturday, March 25, 2015 at 1:30pm with Michelle Kelly at InnerGlow Yoga in Mashpee. Registration has already begun for our ShopLocal Members! Our next Lower Cape event will be at the Hot Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans with more information to come soon!
Earlier in March, Cape Cod Moms held the first ever Mom Night Out. We were extremely blessed to have the opportunity to work with Alex, of Dot to Dot Art Workshop in Harwich, in order to facilitate a relaxing evening out for moms on the lower Cape. There were nine local moms in attendance for the event and we really had a great time.
Alex came up with a great spring craft to help get us in the mood for the snow-free days ahead. We created butterfly branches out of various paper and every single one was unique and beautiful just like the women in attendance.
The craft was just a bonus, because the real magic was in the moms meeting other moms. For me personally it was truly amazing to finally put names with faces and to get to know some of these beautiful women a little better.
I learned that Rachel and Amanda were huge fans of Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, like myself! We had quite the conversation over those shows, debating who was the dreamiest man. I was able to finally meet the extremely dedicated Rita, who helps run the Lower Cape Mom event calendar and runs art workshops in the area for the local community! I also finally met Betsy, whose Wildtree newsletter I have been reading for over a year. I met Chanelle, whose husband works for the Coast Guard and I found out just how much she loves living here on the Cape. Their friend, Rachel, who attended with them was full of positive energy. You could clearly see how great a friendship she has with Chanelle and Betsy (their kids even all play together!) I had a great conversation with Alex about how she decided to leave teaching in the school system to be able to cultivate her love of art by sharing it with the community. Lauren, a fellow Upper Cape mom, made the trek to Harwich to join us for a much needed break. She even brought one of her twins with her. He was well-behaved and quite the charmer of the ladies!
The evening was a success in my book. I was so thrilled to be able to meet some other local moms and just enjoy a quiet evening out. It is really hard in this day and age to find the time to slow down and put yourself first. As women and mothers, we often are the ones who take the proverbial backseat, while we put our families, jobs and everything else before ourselves. Unfortunately, there is also the underlying competition that we often see taking place between moms, especially in the virtual world. In the day and age of constant communication and "Facebook", we often feel the subliminal prodding of guilt and competition that comes from the updates online. I know sometimes I feel guilty when I see posts about super-healthy meals, moms in super shape, activities that other parents are doing, posts from my stay-at-home mom friends or even working ones. I sometimes feel as if I can't quite measure up to this perceived ideal that society has created of the "perfect mother". But after this recent evening out, I realized that it's is all in my head, a virtual reality created by the Internet and this constant need to stay connected. When we come together in person, all those feelings of competition and guilt disappear. It was a nice reminder that we need this time every so often. We need to unplug every once in a while and actually meet up in the physical world. When we come together, we begin to realize that despite coming from all different walks of life and having different opinions on things, we are actually all pretty similar. We also realize that we're all in this parenting thing together, sharing the same parenting struggles, never to be prepared for what's next and just trying to do our best, hoping that it's good enough. It takes a village, and we all need to support one another. I, for one, am looking forward to more of these events where we can unplug and come together to share these struggles, goals, and hopes for the future.
