I love April because it’s when I start to plan Mother-Fest! For those of you who are recent additions to the Mothering Touch community, Mother-Fest is our Pampering Celebration of Moms. We run it every year on the Friday before Mothers’ Day. We invite all sorts of practitioners – massage therapists, reflexologists, acupunturists, estheticians, naturopaths, physiotherapists, a body-painter, a photographer, even a sex therapist – and they all offer quick 10-minute services for $5.
We have live music (I get my son Simon and his friend Gabe to play for us) and lovely snacks from Patisserie Daniel, and there are great sales in the store. There is even Valet Stroller Parking and doulas to hold babies while moms have treatments. It’s a fabulous afternoon!
This year, to celebrate Mothering Touch’s Tenth Birthday, Janice has been approaching all our suppliers to get extra special samples and delightful treats for you to take home.
At the beginning of April, I start out explaining it to all the new practitioners I invite, and all the new moms who have started coming here in the last year, and I realize again what a good idea it is. So Kaarina and I are going to write a series of blog posts about the practitioners who are going to be attending so that you can read about them all, look forward to the pampering and start to get excited!!
See you there! ~Eva
