MBs is turning 3!… Thanks to you :-)

& We couldn’t have done it without your support…

Well, it’s been a crazy and exciting year folks. If you’ve been following the Mama Monkey chronicles, then you’re aware of what I’m talking about… For those of you who have better things to do than follow each and every one of my Facebook updates, here’s a quick recap:
1.) I got married to a wonderful new husband, Ethan (some of you may have met him. He’s a great helper)
2.) I co-founded & launched, Alameda Parent Support, an organization created to take the place of the New Parent Support groups offered by Smart Healthy Babies (who lost their state funding in 2008)
3.) The new husband and I are expecting another mini-monkey on May 30th (the nausea + fatigue + general malaise are killing me)
4.) Kyle (mini-monkey #1) started Kindergarten AND, FINALLY
5.) At long last, Monkey Bars received city approval to move forward with our façade plans… Stay tuned for THAT!

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you – some I see on a regular basis, and some I haven’t seen since last year’s birthday party – for your continued support of me, my family, and my business. We turned 3-years-old this December! It ain’t been easy, but without my loyal fan base (that’s you :-)), we wouldn’t be here. And what better excuse for a party?!?

Join us Sunday, December 18th, 2011
from 3-6pm @ Monkey Bars
to celebrate our 3rd Birthday…

Lots of FREE stuff + beverages + snacks. Free chair massages from 4-6pm, plus a Raffle of new mama-to-be goodies from Zoe Organics. Simply bring a new or gently used toy to donate & you’re entered to win. We’ll also be introducing & showcasing Luna Leggings: Bright, Fresh, & Unique Leggings for girls. They’re a brand new company that’s getting ready to launch so YOU get a sneak peek! These are seriously awesome. You’ll want a pair in your size.
Hope to see you Sunday!!

Happy Holidays to you and your Monkeys! Have an excellent Christmas, Hanukkah, & New Year…
