I love the month of May. In addition to signaling the end of a long school year, the weather is just about perfect (before the heat arrives). It’s also the month where we celebrate MOMS! From the ever-so-excited-moms-to-be to the exhausted moms raising toddlers, tweens, and teens, and to the moms who have young adults leaving the nest… We are cheering you along! Our HFM mom tribe are raising babies, toddlers, elementary-schoolers, tweens, teens (um, buckle up, for this stage), and others of us are transitioning into life as an “empty nester.” No matter where you are today, hang in there, Mom. You’ve got this! Take some time for yourself this month (remember, the kids will be out of school soon)! We’ve included some “Mompower Mantras” to help you get started!
Speaking of Moms. We are hosting our MOM*ME Market presented by Texas Children’s Hospital from Noon to 4 pm, Saturday, May 18 at Evelyn’s Park in Bellaire. It’s a free event so grab your friends and spend the day with us. We’re planning activities for the little ones, too. For a more exclusive, early access opportunity, we’ll be hosting a VIP preview from 11 am to 1 pm, featuring mocktails, cocktails, nibbles, and treats! In addition, we’ll be giving away more than $20,000 worth of products for Moms and babies! Check out www.mommemarket.com for details. A portion of the proceeds from VIP ticket sales benefits our dear friends at The Diaper Foundation.
This month, we take a serious look at the ever-growing concern of video gaming addiction, and its impact on the brain. This is a must-read for ALL!
May is National Bike Month, check out the best places to bike around the Bayou City! Are you thinking about summer plans? Take a trip to Big Bend National Park. We’ve highlighted some great tips and travel products to consider.
Lastly, wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day! And remember…
