Celebrate, Gripe & Get to Know Other Dads

February 21, 2013

Whether you’re a dad to a daughter or a son (or both), you’ll fall in love with the blog Life To Her Years, written by a dad about loving and raising his two daughters. Each post is a simple picture and caption, with a funny, insightful or thoughtful tip for raising your daughter. But really, most of the tips apply to any gender.

We’d love to hear from you in the comments section below, too: what’s most important to you in raising your daughter or son? 

And while we’re talking daddyhood, we know that you need a community, too.

That’s why Blooma offers a monthly “Dad’s Hour” — led by a local dad. Dad’s Hours are offered twice monthly — once at Blooma Minneapolis and once at our St. Paul location. The next Dad’s Hour sessions are:

  • Saturday, March 2, 2-3 p.m. (Mpls) | SIGN UP
  • Saturday, March 16, 5-6 p.m. (St. Paul) | SIGN UP

Sign up online (and bring a buddy!). Whether you want to gripe about the sleep you’re not getting, find out if others also have anxieties about becoming a dad, or are just looking to get to know other dads, we’d love to see you on March 2 or 16!

It’s just a $10 drop-in fee, or use your partner’s Blooma Pass. Whether you’re a Dad-To-Be or already have 1, 2, 3, or more kids at home, Dad’s Hour is an hour for all types of dads to relate to other dads.

Blooma’s “Pappy Hour” Brings Focus to Dads

June 7, 2012

While the focus is often on mom before and after baby’s arrival, new dads and dads-to-be also feel overwhelmed by the changes happening in their lives. Sometimes there isn’t a strong support network available just for dads.

Do you have questions about your little one? Want to gripe about the sleep you’re not getting? Just looking to get to know other dads who can relate?

Just in time for Father’s Day, join us at Blooma (Minneapolis/Edina location) for a free, special evening where dads can gather, talk candidly and share stories on Thursday, June 14 from 7:30-8:45 p.m.

Special guests include members of the Roe Family Singers and a Q&A with Margaret McKinley Owens and Charlie Owens, instructors of one of Blooma’s newest class offerings. The class provides an eye-opening view into the first few day and weeks of life with a newborn — and answers many of the questions dads never thought to ask.

The event is free to dads, and mamas and babies are welcome, too. For more information call 952-848-1111 or register online.

GIVEAWAYS will be happening through out the night! We will be giving away: massages, class passes and retail goodies! Your wife will love that you are “giving her” a massage on Father’s Day!
