I love Calgarymoms, I enjoy logging on each morning and talking with the other ladies and getting great advice on anything I ask. Everyone is so nice and down to earth. With all these women you would think there would be a cat fight from time to time but nope....we are all moms who just want to have people to chat with and a place to belong...it's kinda like cheers...everyone knows your name. I can't say enough about CalgaryMoms or how wonderful I think it is that Britt came up with this idea.

I love Calgarymoms! It's been my saving grace after I had Kalynah. I was finding that I was isolated and alone because I had no one to talk to about 'mom things' and 'baby things', none of our friends in the calgary have kids. And all our close friends that do have kids, their kids are either older or they live in different provinces and we dont talk to them very often.
I came across this website while searching for a playgroup for Kalynah and I was so happy that i found this place! I've met so many wonderful moms (we've had so much fun at the moms night out (aka MNO) fuctions; shared all my 'mommie moments' with them (good & bad and most importantly.. most embarrassing moments);found lots of advice and moral support; playgroups for Kalynah; and most importantly and found that im not alone in this mommie (parenting) adventure! So, thanks again to you Britt! (and everyone else) ... i still have my sanity!

Moving to Calgary from Ontario was a hard thing to do. My husband got a great job promotion, but we where going to be in a new province all by ourselves with the kids ! I searched the web for a place where I could just be me, a mom . I found Calgarymoms.com and let me tell you, it has been a life saver ! I have met some amazing moms on here. I now have a bunch of close friends who are really there for me. Whenever I have childrearing questions or personal problems I know I can reach out to these amazing moms and they are always here to help me and not judge me. We get together for dinners, playdates with our children and have family outings with our spouses and kids. It's like my extended family ! I don't know what I would do without Calgarymoms.com.

I was the first out of my girlfriends to have a child. It was really hard b/c I didn't have anyone I could connect with as a mother. They are still single girls, living it up- there is little that they would understand about being a mom, until they become one. With my mom living in New Brunswick I felt a little out of touch with the world...and it doesn't help that Jamie works out of town 75% of the year. I wanted to find playdates for my son and hopefully meet some wonderful women in the process. It turns out I got more than I was looking for and I found something where I could ask questions that i need answered, to talk about family life, playdates for Colten...basically a community of moms who in one way or another were looking for the same thing.

When DH was transferred to Calgary in September 2006, I was worried that our once full social life would fail to thrive. I found CMoms when I was messing around on the internet and decided to join. I spent the first month lurking and trying to get settled in Calgary. Then I decided to go for it and get the premier membership. I mean really ....$20.....what was there to lose??? I went to my first playgroup at the end of October and I haven't looked back. We have met so many friends and have a very active social life. The play dates and MNOs are fun, but being able to receive support and encouragement 24/7 is a life saver.

Thank you for making my life so much easier!! Being fairly new to Calgary and to parenthood, I find the support on Cmoms to be outstanding. I'm never afraid to ask a stupid question because I know that I will get an answer and 10 others who've wondered the same thing. To me, $20/yr for the premier membership is totally worth it and I look forward to many years of cmoms!

When all my "mommy friends", whom I had met during Pre-Nat or Baby and You Classes were going back to work after maternity leave, I got worried. What was I going to do with my baby now in terms of play dates? What other adults would I hang out with during the day?
Then I found my answer, Calgary Moms! I was a little iffy at first, as I am very internet savvy, but very internet wary. I wondered how the play dates would work, and after asking around a bit on the pre-members board, and talking to my husband, I decided to take the leap. I am glad I did. My daughter and I have been on tons of play dates now, she has met some really great friends, and so have I.
In my opinion twenty dollars a year, is well worth it! I think my daughter thinks so too!

Calgary Moms is the first online format that I have been part of where I receive friendship, sanity, and a place where I can truly be myself. I have appreciated all the kindness, guidance, and support that I have received from the wonderful ladies on this site. This was the best investment of $20 I could have made for myself. Thanks everyone!
