Getting Real About Stranger Danger

A terrifying experience that no parent wants their children to go through. Just this last September, a child who attends Pope Elementary was followed by a man on his way home from school. As the child started to run, so did the stranger, and the boy was able to evade him by heading for a neighbor's door. When I received the notice from Puyallup School District about this attempt, I knew that we needed another refresher in Stranger Danger.

Stranger Danger Education is great at any age. With Summer Fast approaching, our children will be hitting the public parks, pools, and recreational activities. The threat is real, but it doesn't have to cause fear or anxiety, or preventing us from enjoying what summer has to offer. MOMs Club is giving you this opportunity to get prepared! Bring your child(ren) to our Stranger Danger event!

Our Moms are Luved!

Valentines day is going to be here before you know it! It's typical to plan this day with your someone special, so what's a Moms Club to do? We luved our moms! This is the typical Ding Dong Ditch idea with a Valentine's Twist. A gift with Valentine's goodies is dropped at the door of someone on our rooster, along with a note and door sign (Attached below!). The poem reads:

You are LUVED!
We're out to show how much friends care
During the month love's in the air.
Cupid's after things to do.
In fact Cupid brought this treat to you.
Hang your heart for all to see
On your doors where it should be.
It will show that you are cared for
By a MOMS Club friend with good rapport.
The treats that came with Cupid's note
Are yours to keep; enjoy them both
The love is shown when friends like you
Copy this and give it out among friends
You've made in MOMS Club - don't let it end!
Just one short day to work your magic.
Don't let love's scorn be tragic
And don't forget a nifty treat,
Like something cute or something sweet.
Please join the fun and of all above
Have some fun and spread the LUV!

From candy to cookies, to décor and stickers, our moms (and their children) were showered with all kinds of wonderful gifts-- and just like a solid community does-- the love continues to spread! Here's what moms said:

We were luved! Such a good welcome home!!
We were luved too! Such a nice surprise after a cruddy day. :)
We were luv'd today! Boys have devoured the chocolates already. ...oh-and I had a few too. ha!
We’ve been loved!  And this means so much to us today after a very long and trying day.  Thank you!!
We were luved today.  Thank you!  The gifts are lovely, and I loooove chocolate. :)
 If you would like to replicate this with your own community, let us know how it goes! Of course, Our group always has room for one more mom to love on, so if you've been on the fence for a while, give yourself a little love and join! We'll be happy to have you!

Oh What Fun!

Look What's Happening with Moms Club of South Hill this month! Snow has hit the ground this morning in Puyallup, but that is not stopping our activities! This month is full of holidays, giving, and plain old fun!  Here is a small hint at what we are up to:

Collecting Stuffed Animals, and Toys

Black Friday resulted in many donations from the Moms Club fund; members braved the crowds to purchase toys for children ages 0- 18. In addition, other members have thrown in a gift or two otherwise, and the items are headed for the South Hill Food bank later this month!

Ornaments Abound!

Two days in a row, it's all about the ornaments! Mid-month we'll have one day to exchange ornaments and another to make them. Our trees will be full of fun this year!

Holiday Happenings!

From public events to making cards and writing to Santa, decorating cookies and gingerbread houses, to white elephant gifts, Mom's club is taking the Holidays by storm! Since we're talking about the holidays; Mom's Club would like to wish all families a wonderful holiday season!  

Good Ol' Favorites!

Mom's Club would be nothing without our favorites! Playgroups, Jump, and themed play dates will be going all throughout the month. Don't forget that we are always looking for new mothers to love on! Our next new member event will be at the Graham Library, 12/11 at 10:15 am. We'd love to see you there!
