About Brookline
map
Brookline Massachusetts is a wonderful and unique mixture of busy streets - upscale shops - village pubs - large estates - gracious apartment buildings and rolling countryside. It is home for legions of scientific and academic professionals who work at nearby medical centers in Boston.

Brookline, MA became incorporated as a town in 1705 when this "Muddy River" farmland of Boston was named for the brooks that formed its boundaries. It has kept its town meeting form of government to this present day.

Brookline offers its own working farm-complete with farm stand, the oldest country club in the nation, a town golf course, a magnificent park on a hillside overlooking Boston which includes an open air skating rink, a highly interesting transportation museum, and the home in which John F. Kennedy was born.

Brookline is home to major retail centers that are alive with pedestrian- oriented shopping areas that are populated with a variety of shops. Here you will find antique stores, book stores, fresh fruit and vegetable markets, delis, restaurants, and coffee shops. BrooklineMA.com offers information about a town that has both a city atmosphere and a feeling of being in the country, thus making it a jewel of a suburb!

                                     Budding Bonds: New Moms Group (0 - 3months)


- Meet a group of other moms in your area
- Talk, listen, laugh, bond

Mommybites Boston is proud to offer Boston-area moms support groups launched in NYC in 2008!

In our new moms groups, each week you’ll share experiences, engage in parenting discussions, gather valuable resources, and ask your parenting questions on order to make this time of major transition smoother, saner, easier and more enjoyable!

After these warm, informative, and friendly sessions, you’ll be fully connected to a great group of other trusted moms and feel empowered with essential skills such as dealing with sleep deprivation and overcoming the challenges of feeding & fussiness.

Mommybites' support groups are led by facilitators who will guide you to embrace your new role & identity as a mom with more confidence, compassion and humor.

-When: Six Tuesdays 11/11 - 12/16

-Time: 11:15am-12:45pm
-Where: Bright Horizons at Brookline
-Fee: $170

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor Founder of Seedlings: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting. 

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.


What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

NotloB Music Presents: TONY BIRD

Brilliantly original songwriter Tony Bird... wonderfully fuses African and European folk styles into songs that are clever, fun, urgent.
-- The Boston Globe


With his historically relevant song, "Sorry Africa," Tony Bird was one of the first white African folk singers to emerge out of the cauldron of southern Africa's apartheid, colonial and post-colonial era. This along with other topical African songs, including tributes to Nelson Mandela, would eventually lead to his performing at a Harvard University divestment concert against apartheid, where he was introduced by one of his folk heroes, the late Pete Seeger. 

Bird has resided in NYC since 1980 and has played the international folk circuit since the early '70s, including established folk festivals in England, Europe, Canada and the US. Originally pegged as a southern African folk singer upon his arrival to these shores, he has grown into a diverse and contemporary international songwriter of the times. Though Bird's recordings feature other musicians, he's just as, if not more compelling as a current solo artist. (Full bio)

notloB is very pleased to announce that to begin the evening Scott Alarik, who Pete Seeger called "one of the best folk writers in the country" will read from his book, Revival: A Folk Music Novel.

Santa in Brookline 2014

Forget about elastic beards and fake bellies – meet the REAL Santa, straight from the North Pole! Santa will be at our Brookline store on December 1 from 3:30-6:30pm. We know that waiting in long lines to see Santa can be difficult for impatient little kids, so we’ve created a unique sign-up system to minimize your waiting time. However, this means that signing up in advance is the only way to guarantee a slot.


Here's how it works:

·         The tickets are organized into 20-minute time windows. Each $10 ticket will give you one Santa meet and greet that will last around 1-2 minutes. 

·         If you are bringing more than one child, you must register for multiple tickets, but please do not sign up for multiple slots for extra long lists, or to give to your friends, nieces, nephews, etc. We want to make sure we can spread around as much Santa as possible. Don't be naughty – this is Santa we're dealing with here!

·         After your visit with Santa, we will provide you with a $10 gift card to Magic Beans for your ticket.

To learn more about the changes to Santa this year, visit our blog.

Please arrive at the store at the beginning of your time window. We will do our best to keep things moving along and ensure that your children get to visit with Santa within the time window you've requested. But Santa loves talking to kids, and sometimes he forgets that he's on a schedule.

We’ll have our own professional photographer on hand taking free pictures for you, but feel free to take your own photos as well! After the event, our photographer will upload your pictures to a completely secure password-protected site; you’ll receive your link and password on a card at the end of your session.

 

Walk-ins and late arrivals will only be accommodated if time allows.

 

Cancellation Policy

If you cancel your reservation on or prior to December 1, 2014, you will receive a refund in full.   If your cancellation is before noon the day of the event, you will receive a full refund in the form of a gift card to Magic Beans. If you fail to cancel within any of these time frames and simply do not show up for an event you have registered for, your money will be forfeited and you will not receive a refund.
