    Ready to declutter? PAMOM is giving you the perfect excuse to clean out your closets! We will be partnering with Recycle2Support this month to collect any items that you'd like to get rid of after you organize.

    How does it work? Go to recycle2support.com between April 12-25 to schedule a donation pickup. Select PAMOM as your charity of choice and then set your donations out on the front porch on the morning of your pickup. You get to purge and PAMOM gets money back for every pound collected. Simple, right?!

    There's no limit on the amount of items you can donate. If you have a big haul, just be sure to mention that on your scheduling form. There are only a few items that Recycle2Support won't accept such as broken items, mattresses, tires, building materials, chemicals and office furniture. For the full list, see https://www.r2sdfw.com/donate

    This fundraiser is open to the public so be sure to tell your local family and friends!

    Virtual Swap: Even though this is a fundraiser, we're still encouraging you to pass on any items that you think another mom of multiples could use. During the week of April 12-16, please visit our members-only Buy, Sell, Swap, Give! Facebook page to advertise the items you are willing to sell or swap. There may be another twin or triplet mom who really needs what you no longer use. Porch pickup is encouraged. Recycle2Support will pick up anything you still have at the end of the week and give back to PAMOM!

    Happy cleaning!

      Calling all members! Ever wonder how you can give back to this amazing group? Want to have some extra mommy time? ❤️ Do you have a few extra hours a month? If so, signing up to be a PAMOM Volunteer may be for you!!!!

    SIGN UP: https://forms.gle/WBMtHDcjbAK6Pbdy5

    The club is unable to run without volunteers! The Executive Board (President, VP Membership, VP Meetings, Treasurer, Secretary) have the most responsibility followed closely by the Board Chairs. Executive Board and Chairs are required to attend the board meetings (last Tuesday of the month- will remain virtual). If you can't make it to the meetings, we have many other roles that can be done from the comforts of your home!

    For a complete list of available roles and responsibilities, see the PAMOM Board Descriptions file on Facebook. You can sign up with a friend to split the work on some roles. The roles transition in May.

    Thanks again to everyone who participated in our On The Border fundraiser this month! I don't have a specific fundraiser planned for December but I did want to take moment to tell you about 3 easy ways to support PAMOM while just doing your regular shopping.

    Amazon Smile – Amazon will also donate a percentage of your eligible purchases to PAMOM. Simply go to https://smile.amazon.com/ch/75-2617297 when you are ready to check out or choose Plano Area Mothers of Multiples (PAMOM) as your charity in your account settings.

    Tom Thumb – Help PAMOM earn money while you shop for groceries. Tom Thumb shoppers can connect their reward cards to PAMOM through the Good Neighbor Program. Grab a registration form at Customer Service or download one at https://www.tomthumb.com/yourstore/good-neighbor.html and use the charity number 3937 to sign up.

    Kroger – Shop at Kroger instead? You can help PAMOM earn money there too. Go to the store's website at https://www.kroger.com/i/community/community-rewards or log into the Kroger app. We are listed under Plano Area Mothers of Multiples or charity number 84907. It’s a great and easy way for everyone to help out the organization but you do have to re-enroll every year beginning in August.

    Thanks for all your support!

    Ladies, please consider supporting PAMOM this month by ordering from Oliver's Labels. They sell durable and washable labels for everything from baby bottles to kids' shoes. I've used their labels since my kids were in daycare and I still use them for things like water bottles at school and jackets.

    You can use promo code EBTS2020 right now to save 20% off your order and PAMOM gets another 20% back. This will help make up for some of the fundraising events we had to cancel in the spring. Just be sure to use this link when you order --> https://www.oliverslabels.com/pamom/

    Share with your friends too to help support PAMOM!

    The coronavirus has disrupted just about every aspect of our lives -- even our PAMOM meetings. We were not able to meet as usual in March, elect a new executive board in April or train new volunteers in May.

    The nasty virus is still around but so is PAMOM. We're adapting and we're planning for a new year of exciting events. But we still need volunteers like you!!

    We know that life with multiples (especially after COVID-19) can be challenging at times. However, we hope that you can spare just a few hours a month to give back to the organization that hopefully has helped you.

    Please complete this Google form to let us know you are interested: https://forms.gle/972fPLHZy52YMSTt6.

    Not sure where you fit in? Tell us your skills and we can help recommend a position that would be a good fit.

    Happy Wednesday!

    I’ve mentioned in the babies’ monthly updates that I have been struggling with my postpartum body. Obviously I am incredibly proud of my body for growing and carrying our perfect baby girls! I even made it to my scheduled c-section date of 36 weeks and 4 days, which is really amazing when you’re pregnant with twins. But the reality is, my body has changed and I wasn’t quite prepared for it. I knew my body wouldn’t be the same after pregnancy but that still didn’t prepare me for how emotional I would feel after my babies were born and I was suddenly left with a body I didn’t recognize.

    Now that the girls are 4 months old and on a pretty good schedule, I have been able to start getting back into a routine to tone up and feel better about my body. I’ve been working out for 30 minutes almost every day and focusing on eating healthy, properly portioned meals.

    Today I’m going to be sharing the easy meal prepping I have been doing lately, which has been crucial to keeping me on track with my eating. I’ve shared meal prep ideas before and although they truly don’t take very long, I just don’t have that kind of time to dedicate to meal prepping right now. Taking care of two babies is very time consuming! Everything I am sharing today can be done in an hour while your baby (or babies!) nap


    Breakfast

    I have been loving Kodiak Cakes lately! I make a big batch using my griddle and it takes no time at all. I will wash and cut fruit while I make the pancakes so that I am getting multiple things done at one time. A short cut would be to use frozen fruit to top your pancakes which requires no meal prep. I like to make sure and have protein with my breakfast so I usually keep frozen breakfast sausage on hand and I heat it up when I’m ready to eat. You could also hard boil some eggs or make scrambled eggs if you have extra time.

    Another easy meal prep breakfast idea is oatmeal packets. I like to make them myself so I can control how much sugar is in them. I have followed THIS recipe before and made several servings to store in the pantry. Then when I am ready to eat, I add hot water and some fruit and I have a healthy breakfast. Again, I will add a protein to go with it such as breakfast sausage or eggs.

    Another breakfast idea that requires little to no meal prep is Greek yogurt topped with granola and fruit. If I have time I will portion out the yogurt and granola and wash fruit in advance so everything is ready to go in the mornings when I’m starving and need a healthy breakfast. But this is a quick and healthy breakfast you can make on the spot as well.

    Lunch

    Meal prepping lunch for the week is super important to keep me on track, especially since I am working from home now and I have access to my fridge and pantry all day long. Having healthy lunches already prepared is crucial for me. Recently I have been making some variation of rice, vegetables, and protein for lunch. I typically use my crockpot to make slow cooker buffalo chicken or salsa chicken or teriyaki chicken. Then I make rice and roasted vegetables so I have a complete meal. You could use minute rice and frozen vegetables to make it even quicker.

    Snack Ideas

    There are lots of easy ways I incorporate healthy snacks into my diet too. Sometimes I blend a protein shake with frozen fruit and/or spinach to get some extra fruits and vegetables in. I’ll also wrap deli meat with sliced cheese for a quick snack. You could have string cheese or a Babybel wedge with some almonds too. My husband loves cottage cheese, which is another good option for protein, but it’s not my favorite. If I want something sweet, I may have apples with peanut butter or rice cakes with almond butter and sliced banana. There are lots of options! These are all quick snacks that you can eat inbetween feeding and playing with babies too! Because we all know there’s not time for elaborate snacks when you’re a new mom.

    Becoming a mom rocked my world in the biggest and best way! But I’ll admit it has been hard to get back on track with a healthy lifestyle. These quick and easy meal prep ideas have helped set me up for success. If you are in the same boat, I hope you found this post helpful and I hope they set you up for success too!

    For the second year in a row, PAMOM members and their families spent an afternoon passing out valentines to the residents at Victoria Gardens Senior Care Center in Allen. It was a community service event for the whole family, even the little ones. They loved meeting the residents and giving them flowers while the residents were happy to see double the smiles!!

    Thanks to everyone who joined us at the January general meeting night for our first post-holidays "Swap Night" with three great educational forums. If we do this again next year, I think we will need more tables!!

    Hopefully you got the chance to either purge or go home with boxes of “new to you” free stuff. PAMOM also donate more than a dozen bags of items to support Hope Supply Co.
