Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and since I happen to be a mom blogger with a fairly new parenting book, you can bet that I’ll be talking about this mother of all holidays a lot in the next few weeks.

Two ways I’ll be celebrating is by hosting a couple of events in NYC. These events are open to all, so if you happen to live in or around NYC, you should come! You don’t even have to be a mom— just open to making some new mom friends.

All details are listed below including handy graphics, so you can use them to email anyone you know who might be interested in joining you.

If you are not in NYC, I highly recommend The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting as the perfect Mother’s Day gift for your remarkably average mom friends. The hard cover is currently available on Amazon for just $10! To round out your present, I recommend a remarkably average mug.
