October 24th has finally arrived! It feels like we have been counting down to Christmas around here. If advent calendars were out by now, I’m not going to lie, I probably would have bought one just for this. I am a part of a few local mommy groups on Facebook and LOVE the community feel those offer, especially when motherhood can feel lonely some days…but one thing I noticed on a regular basis was the same questions being asked over and over again. Usually questions along the lines of “what are some great parks in the area?” or “Can anyone recommend a good Dentist to take my toddler?” or “Yay! My hubby and I get our first night out since the birth of our baby! What is your favourite restaurant for a date night?”. I love reaching out for advice and recommendations as much as the next mom, but I kept thinking to myself that there has got to be a resource where all of these questions and recommendations are also kept and updated on the regular. Toss in the need for a mom’s night out every so often and -Voila! – Victoria Moms Blog idea was born 😉
We have been working hard behind the scenes to bring Victoria a resource for moms – completely written by the Victoria Moms you see in this picture. Please head on over to our Team About Us page to get to know us (maybe you will even see a familiar face!), and we hope that you will visit us often and enjoy reading our posts as much as we enjoy writing them.
Everything will be updated as we receive new reviews and recommendations, and you can expect to find a variety of topics from our amazing contributors, ranging from our personal favourite and vouched for activities for kids to advice or perspectives unique to our area and experiences. Be sure to bookmark our local events calendar to help you figure out child friendly activities around the city as more and more are added. We are also passionate about bringing moms together and cultivating friendships off-line just as much as online, so be sure to keep an eye out for details about our VMB hosted Moms Night Out Events! Make sure to subscribe to VMB and Like us on Facebook so you don’t miss anything!
Also! If you would like to see a topic or resource you think would be helpful being listed on this website, please contact us with your thoughts and suggestions! That is the whole reason for this community built mom and parenting resource 🙂
