The mom & kids group continues to believe in the proverb “It Takes a Village”, meaning many people provide wisdom and care in the life of a child and a family. It is true that women have much to learn from one another. We can provide support to each other in so many ways. In today’s ever changing world the women of the IWC continue to find a community of like minded and wise women who know the trials and tribulations of expat mommy life.
We grow and change as our kids grow and change. We now have moms who are enjoying their first babies and our original moms have kids becoming teenagers. While we are all at different stages we have similar desires, healthy and safe kids, support when we have issues, and we all enjoy taking advantage of the great things the Swiss life has to offer.
We have shared time through playdates, coffees, parent date nights, and events and now we’ve changed the format of the group. There are so many opportunities in and around Lausanne, including Lausanne mom meet ups, M&M2B meet ups and now Ladies of Lausanne meetups. With all these resources we have decided that the moms & kids group will take on a social media format where we all share information on our Facebook page about what is going on and what we are doing with the kids. We will continue to have our favorite events:
- Moms brunch the second Wednesday of the month at Blackbird
- Parent date nights once a month with RSVP only
- Random meet ups when great things are happening so STAY TUNED to Facebook!
When there are great things happening please post them on Facebook so we can all enjoy and if you are interested in planning a playground outing or a playgroup do that as well, we welcome all ideas!
The mom & kids group is a fun and vibrant community of English speaking women and their families, from all over the world. It is in this sharing and connecting that we are the strongest. The moms & kids club is excited to continue the work of providing a wise village of women across the mothering lifespan. Welcome and expect to be inspired by your fellow moms!
