Well, it’s nearly a month later than I had planned, but the 2012 Mom’s Guide is finally printing, and soon there will be 10,000 copies to distribute to moms like you who are looking for great deals, handy-dandy kids-eat-free and events calendars that you can keep in your car or diaper bag, terrific resource listings on places you can (and should!) go with the kiddos and helpful articles written by some of our county’s coolest moms.
I want to thank the many advertisers whose participation in this year’s guide makes it possible to print and distribute across the county. If you’re wondering who they are, just look to the right of this post and, if you’re so inclined, please click the tile ads to visit their websites!
And I want to thank the companies that contributed to our special “Life’s Better When You BOGO” section. Get your guide, and you’ll be treated to more than $50 in BOGOs at:
Mon Petit Chateau
My Kids Clubhouse
Seaport Village’s Antique Carousel
The UTC mall Kiddie Train
If you are a military mom, please check with your Fleet & Family Support Center…they will have guides in offices across the county for you beginning next week!
If you are a playgroup organizer, please use the contact form to request copies of the guide for your members.
And if you’re a mom like me who loves to be out on the town with the kiddos, then let’s meet up this month! Remember, it’s Museum Month, and that means that from February 1 through February 29th we can get into 40 San Diego museums for 1/2 price. What a great time to check out some of the family programs we’ve been eager to attend. I will bring your copies of the 2012 Mom’s Guide with me to the following events, so mark your calendar, visit Macy’s for your Museum Month Passport, and let me know if you’re coming!
