Meeting of the Dads


How was your weekend? While the sunshine I was hoping for didn't eventuate, we wrapped up in our hats and gloves and still enjoyed getting out and about.

The highlight of my Saturday was the Mothers Group family get together at the local pub. I feel very lucky to have met such a wonderful group of women who live nearby and love to chat about life over a latte or two, and we decided it was time for all the Dads to meet as well. Too often Dads miss out on the social aspects of parenthood, and what better way to bond than over a couple of beers! It was lovely seeing all the Dads engaging with the babies and each other, and getting to meet the men behind all the ladies I've grown to love over the past couple of months.

While our Mothers Group still catches up weekly, we've scheduled the next family get together for September - which I've put up my hand up to organise. I'm thinking that a game of barefoot bowls might be in order to celebrate the start of Spring?

Would love to hear about any good family catch ups you've had lately!

  1. What a great idea! The poor Dad's get forgotten about sometimes and this is such a great networking opportunity for them.
