National Mom's Nite Out

moms-nite-out.jpgEvery mama needs a night out from time to time, and next week (May 6) you can join in a national party with scores of moms across the country for National Mom's Nite Out. Check the state-by-state listing for local events; in Massachusetts, Simon Malls and Children's Orchard are sponsoring events at multiple locations, and Lands' End will host an event in Natick. I'll be at the Atrium Mall event with some girlfriends (please come say hello if you see me!) and here's some of the cool stuff going down at the Atrium (also, there's a special Boston Mamas deal at the end of this post):
