According to the church website:
Supper Clubs are hosted by members... and are small groups of people who get together at least twice a month during the months of June – August to eat together. It can be at someone’s home, a local community park, or restaurant. Supper clubs are divided by family friendly and adults only, and people are assigned to a supper club based off of the type of club they would like to attend and their location.
Our supper club didn't start until yesterday because the hosts just bought their first home last month and were busy moving in and getting settled. Our hosts are actually the sweet family that invited us to their little girl's second birthday party last weekend. Overall we had a great time! I made my "Not yo mama's banana pudding" and it was a big hit!
We met a lot of families and I talked for a long time to a mom who I really connected with! Like me she is a young African American working in the health field as well as a Durham transplant with a large family located out of state that she misses dearly. She is married to a Korean gentleman and has a super cute 22 month old son who kept trying to hold Abby's hand. I tried to snap a picture of them walking hand in hand, but was unable to grab the camera in time to capture the Kodak moment. We have already made plans to have a play date to a kids’ museum in Chapel Hill!
I also had a long chat with Jessica, the host of the supper club. She has a heart of gold and taught me all there is to know about consignment sales and toddler toys! There is a big consignment sale coming up in Durham called Kids Everywhere. Jessica is going to show me the ropes and help me get a play kitchen, water table and doll house for Abby. On a humorous note, Jessica's two year old came up to me at the beginning of the supper club and pointed to my belly. In the sweetest little toddler voice she asked me "Is there a baby in there?" I told her there wasn't and she asked me why. I told her Abby's my baby and she is no longer in my belly. That seemed to satisfy her curiosity. Out of the mouth of babes! This mama has really got to lose this belly fat!!
