What a great night out with the ladies from ABCDE Playgroup! With our very own Tom Cruise-esque cocktail man (You’re the man, Rene!) and his creation ‘The Mums Night Out’ we had a lot of laughs and fun. Thanks again to all who came out and hope to do it again soon!
Remember last week we mentioned the National Mom’s Night Out? Well on Thursday 26 July, fifteen lovely ladies slapped on the heels and lipstick and kicked off the first ever nationwide event in style.
We gathered at International Almere’s favourite stomping ground – Apollo Hotel in Almere and sipped our mojitos, chardonnays, beer and espresso while pouring over the contents of our goodie bags and sharing kiddie war stories.
We all had a wonderful time and thanks to the wonderful Lynn Morrison of Nomad Parents for organising. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I cannot wait for then next one.
Keep an eye out for upcoming Nomad Parents events, hopefully the next one will be some time in October.
Motherhood is an around the clock job with little opportunities for a break. When you are an expat mom, finding a way to get a little “me time” can be that much harder because you may not have a good social network to support you. Going out on your own seems overwhelming, going out with your partner seems impossible (where do I find a babysitter I can trust?) and meeting up with friends requires that one of you organize an event. So what is a mum to do to get a break?
On Thursday, July 26th we are offering up a solution: International Almere, together with ABCDE Playgroup and Nomad Parents invites you to come out and join us for the National Mom’s Night Out at the Apollo Hotel in Almere. We have organized the time, date and location so all you have to do is show up. If you have some friends, bring them along! If you don’t know anyone, come and meet someone new! This is a national initiative, with events happening all over the Netherlands at the same time. We’ll keep things fun with great conversation, giveaways and goody bags.
See you from 8pm, Thursday 26 July at Apollo (Koetsierbaan 2, 1315 SE Almere)!
