Now that the back-to-school rush has calmed down, we’ve been scheduling lots of great social events for you and your kids, and even a few for just us moms! Here goes:
THE BIG ONE: JOIN US FOR THE BAD MOMS OF WESTCHESTER WINE & CIDER TOUR!
Sunday, October 14
9am - 6pm
This all-day event is your perfect fall getaway! Hosted by Alessandra from the secret Facebook group BAD Moms of Westchester, (learn more about them here) we’ll be taking The Little Wine Bus up to some great Hudson Valley Wineries. For around $160 (perhaps even less if we get a big group together, so tell your friends!), we’ll enjoy transport in a luxury bus, goody bags, 5-6 wine tastings at each stop, time for shopping in the cute winery boutiques, lunch, signature wine glass souvenirs, raffle prizes, yummy dessert, games and snacks, and all the great company of us at BabyGotChat and the BAD Moms, a low-key fun-loving group of work-hard, play-hard moms.
Interested? Click here to fill out this form for more information. Again, the more women we bring (non-moms welcome too!), the more the price goes down, so recruit friends! The deadline is October 5, so fill out the interest form today! And want in on the BAD Moms Facebook fun? You need an invitation from an existing member, so ask around.
DRINKS NIGHT WITH THE BRONXVILLE MOMS
Thursday, October 4
8pm - 10pm
Mickey Spillane’s in Eastchester
Bronxville Moms is a Meetup group started by local mom Sarah who relocated to Westchester from the UK. You don’t have to reside in Bronxville to meet us for drinks. In fact, we get women from all over the county in need of a little Mommy’s Night Out! This group also plans events like stroller walks, painting parties, and more. Click here to view the Meetup group and RSVP, or just drop by!
WEEKLY PLAY DATES FOR PRESCHOOLERS AT LIL CHAMELEON
Wednesdays in October and November for ages 2 to 6
Lil Chameleon in Tuckahoe
Last year we did an infant-and-toddler-focussed free play hangout called Mommy Meetup Monday at Lil Chameleon. This year we are spotlighting preschoolers with a program called Imagination Station.
From 3pm to 5pm the cafe and activity room transform into a pretend play space with rotating themes each week. Kids are engrossed in a make-believe world. With a rotating "scene", dress ups, and theme-oriented toys, DIY arts and craft projects and interactive play, their imaginations will go wild. They’ll play, we’ll sit back and chat while the kids have a blast.
Space is limited and is on first come-first served basis so reservations are strongly encouraged. BabyGotChat readers can come every Wednesday for half price! Just $10 for a two-hour session, $5 for a sibling. You can contact Lil Chameleon with any questions, and if you still want to swing by on Mondays with your littles, that meetup is still going strong this year!
We’ll meet every Wednesday (except Halloween) for the next few months. We’d love to have you join us! This event is for a group of up to 10 kids, so register soon to ensure your space. Click here to view the upcoming October 3rd Imagination Station program. The first theme is Pirates! Be sure to select the dropdown option called “10.03 BGC 3-5pm” for the special $10 pricing.
That’s it for this week! Don't forget to check out our exclusive list of every children's library program in Westchester. It's been updated for Fall 2018, so everything you need to know is in one easy list.
September 30 is the last day to enter our contest to win a $30 gift package of assorted items from the folks at MAM. Follow babygotchat and mam_usa on Instagram to be eligible, then click here to enter.
