About Me | An Ottawa Mommy Blog

I love being an Ottawa mom, Ottawa is such an amazing city with so many exciting and fun things to do with a baby and kids. The only problem is no one seems to know what is going on here or what to do.

So that’s why I’ve started this Ottawa Mommy blog to share my tips and adventures in this great city.

When I found out I was pregnant my biggest worry was getting bored sitting at home with a baby.  So I set out looking for all the cool things I could do, there are so many resources in Ottawa when you have young children the only problem is they aren’t working together to get families to their programs. They all seem to spend time getting information out to their existing clients but are neglecting to get the information out to prospective ones. I spent many hours and came across many missed opportunities, amazing playgroups and great free outings to do. So I’m going to do my best to create a resource to help parents find great places to bring your kids.

Did you know you can swim for free with a baby under 18 months?

You can take toddlers to draw and paint in an Art Gallery for free?

You and your baby can go see the latest blockbuster in the theatre?

There is a free indoor jungle gym downtown that is open til 8pm?

These are all things I’ve learned.

So enjoy some recipes, some crafts, ways to do things cheaply, get some free stuff and have some fun while I navigate being an Ottawa mom.

Always,
Meg
