#somum Make Date on Weds!

#somum Make Date on Weds!

Join us on twitter on Wednesday 14 May from 8.30 - 10pm UK time (find your time zone equivalent here) for our monthly Make Date (find out more about those here...). 

What's this month's theme?

How many things have you touched today?

Who have you soothed, dressed, chivvied, supported? What have you sorted, moved, prepared, transformed?

How many significant tiny things have you done without even noticing them?

You do amazing things every day. 

Small things that make a huge difference to the lives of those around you. 

And how often do you notice that...?

Well, this month we want you to hold those things in your hand and take a good look at them.

We want you to read your value in your palm. 

And know that you matter. That everything you do every day makes a difference.

It can be exhausting. And repetitive. And wonderful and thankless and challenging and heart-swelling. But every little touch has an impact.

What do mamas hold in our hands? Join our #somum Make Date on twitter on Weds 14 Feb.So we're going to be drawing round our hands together, and filling our hand-prints with what we touch.

Because, apart from being a valuable remidner of how amazing we are, its' fun to draw round your hand and fill it with stuff. And it looks cool. And it's something you can do with the kids if you don't have any child-free time.

We'll be sharing our pictures in the I Have Touched gallery right here.

If you're not into drawing or doodling, you can go for the quick option and share some of your words in Handle With Care instead...

And if you want to print or paint or knit or collage or anything else instead of doodling, that's brilliant! It's your time, and your hand, so fill it however you like.

We'd really love you to join us on Weds!

We have no idea how we will be able to draw round our hands and tweet at the same time, but we know we'll have fun trying!

As well as making and sharing pictures, we'll be talking about how we value what we do and the little things we do that make a difference.

You don't have to get creative if you don't want to, and feel free to lurk until you feel brave enough to say hello. We'd love you to join us.
