Now alittle history on the founders of Mom2Mom by Elaine
& William Jun
I've been asked many times why my husband (who is a Registered
Nurse) and I created Mom2Mom.ca, this online community for parents.
We wanted an online resource for parents in the local community
to be an encouraging, supportive and helpful website! So, let's
recreate some history about us...
had been living in Windsor for just 3 years when I had my first
child. I didn't know very many other parents in the community.
When I first became a parent, I began spending a lot of time on
various online parenting communities and found other moms to be
valuable sources of comfort, advice, and support in my exciting
venture into parenthood. Best of all, online communities could
be tapped into 24 hours of the day, a great thing since my baby
never seemed to sleep at night! However, there was one big drawback....it
was highly unlikely that I would ever get a chance to meet any
of my new-found friends face-to-face!
the same time this was going on, I was trying to meet other flesh
and blood moms in my local community...and discovered that they
seemed to be almost impossible to find! The "books"
said to head out to my local playground and I would surely meet
other moms like me. So, I faithfully visited the playground...and
found it mostly empty except for older kids. Plus, it was not
much fun to head out to the playground when it was -10 degrees
outside (and of course, I felt sorry for my poor daughter who
got dragged around). So, I thought there had to be a better way
since I was sure there had to be other moms in the same boat I
any rate, I started asking around and looking around and found...nothing
(of course, it didn't help that I didn't have a car at the time
and so was pretty much housebound unless something was within
walking distance). Anyway, I expanded my search online and found...nothing.
There were so few places a mom with a newborn baby could go to.
I called the local library....but their programs were tailored
to babies 6 months and up. I called the health unit...and while
they DID have programs for new moms, it was impossible for me
to get there. To cut a long story short, I finally bumped into
a mom online who happened to live in Windsor as well and she told
me about a drop-in centre nearby my home where I could take my
baby. I was so excited!! Finally, somewhere to go! I only wished
that I had heard about places like this when my baby was much
website like this that would connect moms in Windsor and Essex
County was definitely LONG overdue. And so, here it is....a website
for parents to meet other parents. We organize Mom2Mom Get2Gethers
so that we ware able to meet face-to-face. This website will also
connect you to the various resources available to parents in Windsor
and Essex County. I hope that you will help me expand our list
of resources available by letting me know what is going on in
YOUR community. This website also features an exciting Classifieds
section that has been such a success that it has been expanded
to LookupWindsor.com, an area where EVERYONE in the community
can buy and sell for FREE!
also hold Mom2Mom Sales in Windsor where you are able to get fantastic
bargains on gently used babies' and kids' stuff. Moms wishing
to sell their stuff can rent tables at the Sale while moms wishing
to get great bargains will find an enormous indoor yard sale devoted
just for goods related to babies and kids. The original founders
of the Mom2Momlist.com website (which lists M2M Sales that are
flourishing all over SouthEastern Michigan) have graciously lent
their support to the creation of this website in the hopes that
Mom2Mom Sales will flourish on this side of the border too. And
they have! The response from the community has been nothing short
of incredible. If you have never been to a Mom2Mom Sale, its time
for you to go. We promise...it will be like nothing else in Windsor!
our website for the times and dates of upcoming Mom2Mom Sales
right here in the community.
surfing & GOD BLESS!
