Shortly after I had my second son, I joined a group that met on Wednesdays called "Parent and Tot". Together with a friend of mine who had a couple of little ones the same ages as mine, we went every week across the street to meet with other moms and sometimes dads, and their little ones.
It was a life saver! A great spot to meet and talk, relax and compare, catch some sanity and grow as a parent. I met some wonderful women and made some great friends. Parent and Tot also had Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and sometimes Friday groups, and it never cost a parent a dime. All they asked from us was a rotating schedule of crafts, stories and snacks.
It's been a year since I attended Parent and Tot, but I still keep in touch and recently one of the P&T organizers messaged me for a cake for a fundraiser. I was eager to help out. Had no idea what to make, but eager.
After a disaster attempt, this was my second cake (my husband is eating my first try). I made it in a Spring Theme - very suiting considering that it snowed today!!
