Being a mom can be a lonely experience if you allow it to be. We know all too well what it feels like when you are juggling feedings and life and then somehow you wake up one day and realize that your social calendar has taken a backseat. We would love it if you would take the time to join us for some various playdates and mom’s night out events throughout the year. Since everyone has different schedules and needs we will be doing our best to vary the dates, times, locations, and age ranges of the activities we plan.

Make sure you follow us on FacebookInstagramPinterest, and Twitter to stay abreast of the latest dates and events. All event registration is first come, first served and moms must be registered in advance.

Austin Moms Blog Members always have first dibs for MNO tickets. Learn more about Membership, HERE
