The Ultimate Virtual Party for Moms

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Hey, there! Welcome to the Ultimate Virtual Party for Moms, just one of the many fine soirees made possible by 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party 2009! I'm Amy, your host!

Here at Up With Moms, we are all about being mommy advocates to create a world filled with peace and sanity for us moms. So today we are hosting the Ultimate Virtual Party created just for moms!

First, to set your mind immediately at ease, NO need to worry about childcare. Off in an adjacent, sound-proof room, we're throwing The Ultimate Virtual Kids Party, hosted by the best, most well-trained babysitters. These girls are sweet, LOVE kids of all ages and have TONS of fun and exciting (and educational!) stuff planned for your kids. The room is filled with squeaky clean, non-toxic toys and has access to a fenced-in outdoor play area. Trust me, this is nirvana for your kids and they will forget you exist.

Next, we've got something special planned for your husbands -- a seminar titled "Get More Sex." This will be a mix of sports highlights, porn clips and a brief lecture on how to get more sex by helping your wife more with the kids and around the house. Oh, and there will be beer. And chips. Men are simple. 'Nuff said.

But for you, my friends, no expense will be spared. This party is all about YOU!!!! In the spa room, you can de-stress with a massage, facial or you can melt right into one of those big, comfy spa chairs and enjoy a relaxing mani/pedi. In another room, we have all of the mom-friendly designers showing their latest fashions -- shoes, dresses, sweaters and blouses -- all for 50%, 75%, 95% off FREE! In the next room, we've got Movies on Demand where you can sit in a wonderful leather recliner, watch your favorite movie and NO ONE WILL TALK TO YOU. For two whole hours. At a time. Except for a server who you can summon with the touch of a button who will bring your drinks and food.

And in yet another room, we've invited some special guests -- a mix of business leaders and lawmakers so we can share what's on our collective minds about balancing work and family. While 70% of moms work nowadays, we all know that the workplace has not quite adapted to allow today's parents to adequately care for our families. We need to let these leaders know that we need more progressive policies to make both work and family work for us and for our country which lags behind so many others on paid family leave, flexible work policies and paid time off. Oh, and don't worry. We'll serve you some liquid confidence before you walk into this room so you'll feel free to really say what's on your mind.

So, party on, ladies, I hope you enjoy yourselves. You deserve it. I can't say that we always party this way here at Up With Moms. But we're working toward a world that will feel a little bit more like this party and less like the insanity we endure every day. I hope you'll join me.

I just stopped by, blog hopping as part of UBP 2009. It is very nice to meet you. I have a blog at www.superfunmama.blogspot.com; It's a toddler learning blog. I'd love to have you for a visit! I am loving UBP! Have a magical day. I have a goal of trying to visit 150 blogs per day, whew! Let's hope the little one takes long naps for the next few days.

I'm still just blog hopping through the Ultimate Blog Party link list. I didn't want to miss out on any blogs... but I just ran out of party time. So... I'm still working my way down the list... even though the party is technically over.
Stop in on my blog if you've got a minute! Or... if you're still up for a party post... you could stop by my party anytime!
