The life of a tweenager can be a challenge. The only thing that may be more challenging is being a momma of a tween. The good news? You’re not alone! We’re all figuring out this motherhood thing together, one day at a time, and Mercy can help. (Fyi… Mercy is one of the awesome sponsors here on SouthwestMissouriMoms.com.)
Just B’tween Us Girls, sponsored by Mercy Family Resource Center and Child Life Services, is a fun free girls’ night out for girls ages 9-13 and their moms. Sorry, guys! Girls only, please. Female Mercy pediatricians Dr. Elizabeth Andrews, Dr. Sara Caffey and Dr. Tamara Fusco will discuss the challenges our girls are facing during the tween years. Bonus! There will be a question and answer session, so don’t be afraid to speak up and ask those questions we know you’re dying to ask (because we want to know, too!).
The forum will take place on Monday, April 20, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Hammons Heart Institute Auditorium on the Springfield Mercy Hospital campus.
The evening will end with a special fashion show featuring 4 lucky tweens. What makes this fashion show different from others? Models choose their favorite outfits, but the catch is, it has to be something they already own! The model is the star of the show–rather than the fancy clothing! This show focuses on the tween and her individual interests, rather than the outfit choice. Models will walk the runway and explain to the audience how and why they made their wardrobe selection.
Models have strolled the runway wearing pj’s, carrying their favorite books or wearing their favorite lounging-around clothes. One daring model worked the runway dressed as a wrestler! We can’t wait to see what our creative tweens come up with this year!
The main event, of course, is hearing from the talented team of Mercy doctors.
As you can tell, this is a fantastic line-up. The program starts at 6:15 p.m., but you should plan to arrive by 5:30 p.m. That will allow you plenty of time to register, browse the booths and have a quick snack. The event will end at 7:30 p.m. (It’s a school night, after all!)
