Mums and Tums

September 7, 2006


  I call the Toddler group Mums and Tums for no other reason than I said it by accident one day and it stuck. I help run the Toddler Group in the village at the Parish Centre. Its a great hall with good facilities in a lovely setting beside our church.

 The groups Chief Whip was out of action today, so it was left to myself to open the hall, set up the stall and roll the ball………

 It’s a very popular group and children come from all around the area, not just locally.

 Last year we spent 2,000 euro on toys, games, C.D.’s books etc.  Each Mum/Carer pays 2 euro for the morning which includes refreshments..

 I’ve been going since my youngest was 2 weeks old and he’ll be two next month. It has been a great place to meet other Mums and I’ve got to know loads of people!

 Just one problem, today it was too busy! In fact it was bedlam, so noisy that some people left early….

 Just a few stragglers were left to sing and dance with the little ones.

 “If you’re happy and you know it…..

 oh, whatever!..
