This has been a tough year for many of us and we are all feeling the pressure, so here at Mumstown.ie we have decided that for one morning, Thursday, 5 December, we are going to forget about property taxes and water rates and all the other stresses we have to deal with and focus on having a bit of festive fun with our babies and toddlers instead.
Each month on the first Thursday, we have a Mumstown parent & baby/toddler coffee morning in the Bagel Bar in Marshes Shopping Centre but for our December coffee morning, we are going all out and making this a Christmassey morning to remember for parents and their little ones.
The Bagel Bar is giving out free bagel bite nibbles and there will be a free bouncy castle, compliments of Pelican Promotions.
We will also have a raffle too and all you need to do is sign your Bagel Bar tea/coffee receipt to be entered, you do not need to buy tickets.
Prizes will include a Doomoo Buddy baby cushion, Boots hamper, Elave hamper, cinema tickets and lots more.
The first 70 parents will also get a Christmas goody bag – which we at Mumstown HQ (in our very cold and damp garage!) have been busy putting together.
As if all that was not enough, Santa will also be dropping in and the little ones can have a chat with him and for any mammies who fancy it, they can hop on his knee too.
He doesn’t mind – in fact, I think he quite looks forward to this morning each December.
So forget about the doom and gloom and come along and share in some festive fun with us.
As always, Mumstown events are free of charge and for this very special Christmas get together, we will be at Bagel Bar, Marshes shopping Centre from 10am-12, Thursday 5 December.
