As we approach the 12 year anniversary of Mommy Poppins, it’s amazing to reflect back on the past years, even as we are looking forward and adding new cities to our community. Just like my children, who have grown in ways I never would have imagined, Mommy Poppins has become so much more than I ever planned for it to be when I started writing those first blog posts as a New Year’s resolution in 2007.
This week we added Washington, DC and Chicago to our growing list of cities that now includes Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Houston, as well as NYC, Long Island, New Jersey, Westchester, and Connecticut.
We launched just in time for the holidays so families looking for vacation break fun or visiting one of these great cities can find all the holiday events and activities in our DC and Chicago event calendars and articles like the top 100 Things to Do with Kids in Chicago or Free Holiday Activities in Washington, DC.
If you have friends or family living in or visiting one of our cities, please let them know to check out our event calendars and holiday activity ideas. Local families can sign up for our weekly emails to get activity updates for every weekend. We’ve also added Chicago and Washington, DC Facebook groups, to create a place local parents can ask questions of our expert local Community Publishers and each other, share advice and meet other local parents directly.
Thank you, truly, for being part of the Mommy Poppins community, whether you are brand new or have been with us for all twelve years. A lot has changed over these years, but the precious moments we spend with our children never change. And we cherish being part of helping families spend more amazing moments together.
Happy holidays and here’s to enjoying more adventures together in the new year!
