MY CHILD, MY CITY – Jackie and her little man, Holden, 7 months old

Jackie is new to the Little Paper but plans to pick up her copy at the Jimmie Simpson Rec Centre.

One of Jackie & Holden’s activities includes attending ‘Mommy Connections’ hosted at Lil’Bean and Green. ”It’s $120 for an eight week session but we’re getting a lot out of it. Each week, two presenters come in to share information and promote their businesses. Just last week we had someone from a belly boot-camp, as well as a baby sign-language class join us… as a participant you get lots of demos, free passes, door-prizes and coupons and the group has babies of all ages so I get to see the development and changes in babies across the board.”

How and where do you meet other parents?
Have you found it easy or hard to find great stuff to do in your neighbourhood?
“Leslieville is BABYVILLE! It’s crazy! I didn’t put myself out there much during the summer but once I saw the leaves turning I started to make an effort and it’s really easy in this ‘hood. We’ve met people at Jimmie Simpson Rec Centre at the free Swim for Babies. I’ve also kept in touch with my post-natal class at the East General Hospital; I run into the moms all the time – and we have our own group on Facebook! We’re all in the same situation – I truly feel like arms are open wide when it comes to helping out fellow moms and dads new to this stage of life.”

What is the best part about being a parent? What is the biggest challenge you face as a parent?
“Best part: Seeing my parents’ features and characteristics live on through my child (they never got to meet him).  Biggest Challenge: Never knowing if, but hoping, I’m doing the right thing. Every day.”

Best place in your neighbourhood for a slide and a swing? A coffee/tea?
“The Leslie Grove Park; it has the best teeter totter, wading pool and coffee shops around. There’s also Greenwood Park: amazing pool, fountains and, in the wintertime, skating.
As for coffee “the people without babies would like me to say Lil’ Bean and Green. The truth is…TEARO COFFEE!!!! It’s spacious and so, so delicious. (Just remember to ask for your coffees ‘extra hot’.)”


Our first sessions classes starts on Tuesday May 24th and Wednesday May 25th that’s only 10 days away until the start of our first Mommy Connections East Toronto class. The agendas are being finalized, we have loads of items for the swag bags and the door prizes are incredible.
