This is a guest post by Deepika Pillai (shown above, left). She has explored Plano with her son, Vivaan and has her Top 10 Things to Do to share with you.
Mall walks – It might not be the best time to buy clothes or shoes, but you can always do window shopping. Head over to Shops at Legacy or Shops at Willow Bend Mall if you’d like to stay indoors but still get out.
Water play – Now that we are in summer, it’s great to hit the pool or the splash pad if you have older kids
Breakfast in the park – We’re blessed with many parks in the Plano area. Make the most of it and picnic early in the morning. Not only will your soul feel lighter, but y’all will get the much needed Vit D as well.
Free Mommy and Me classes can be found throughout Plano.
Brunch with the girls – Get out with your girlfriends for brunch and make the most of the weather situation you are in.
Movies at Drafthouse
Live music – Great way to get out as a family on weekend evenings in Plano or Frisco
check Gymboree or MyGym – Enroll yourselves in Mommy & me classes
check Visit and enjoy Storytime and other Programs at our Plano Libraries
check Check out the Plano Moms list of fun things to do
Finally, check out some Mommy groups & New Mom Support groups in the Plano area
These were a life saver in the initial days when I had not one friend in this alien country.
I had to have human interaction and the mommy groups really helped me get out of my shell and make some friends for life.
Listing them some of them for you:
Texas Health Plano – my favorite. I have the fondest memories her with Cheryl and Jessie who made my journey as a new mom very enjoyable. I’ve also met some wonderful moms and kids and made a couple of dear friends.
Texas Health Plano mommy mixer for working moms – I’ve never been to one of these yet but intend to very soon!
The Nappy Shoppe – run by the most humble bunch of folks in Plano. They have amazing support groups for you to fall back on.
