As much as we love and adore our kids, sometimes we all need to dress up, leave the kids at home and go out for a night to feel like we’re humans again, right?
If you’re close to Waterloo, ON, that’s exactly what you can do at the up-coming ‘Mom Prom’, put on by Vanessa + Melissa. If you haven’t heard of them, Vanessa and Melissa are two hilarious, genuine Canadian Moms who share and connect on social and TV in a quest to make fellow Moms feel a little less alone.
The first time I met them, they greeted me with a hug like I was an old friend, and every time I’ve seen them since they’ve been nothing but generous, kind, friendly and genuine. Basically, they’re all-around awesome gals.
And just like a lot of us moms, they struggle, sometimes cry and often live on coffee all day. They love motherhood so much, but always try to keep it real, which we love and appreciate—and they’ve decided to bring that feeling to a tribe of Moms around southern Ontario.
“We wanted to create a much deserved night out for all mamas (and non moms—we have lots of doggy mamas coming too!)” Melissa told me. “It’s a night out to laugh, drink and celebrate how awesome we all are, in a prom setting without the dudes or the drama of our highschool prom.”
A chance to put on something slightly fancy for once (but you don’t have to wear a prom dress), go out with a girlfriend and have fun for a night? Sign. Me. Up.
The pure “Mom Entertainment” is described by Vanessa and Melissa as: dancing, music, games, prizes, and some seriously hilarious straight up Mom talk. “We’re going to play games that the audience will get involved in, talk about married life (or single mama life), sex and share some stories that will have everyone leave feeling awesome.”
The event takes place on Wednesday, April 25 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in Waterloo, with doors opening at 6:30 pm. (Prom dress is optional but always an amazing choice!)
