You know those days where you've spent the majority of it cleaning up pee, poop, syrup, cheerios, drool and tears? You catch a glimpse of your reflection in the mirror and notice your pony tailed hair desperately in need of a trim? You think of when you can find the time and childcare to get away for a few hours and know schedules are tight for a few weeks?
Now you can go to the newly opened Urban Mom Salon and be pampered while your kids are in a separate, ventilated playoasis having fun with trained nannies. Both of you getting a break and spending some time apart equals win, win for everyone involved.
Urban Mom Salon invited me and my kids to try a complimentary service. I picked them up from school and instead of heading home as usual; we drove towards Damen and Webster for a special afternoon. The fact that there was parking in front and I didn't have to pay the dreaded money meter, I was already impressed.
The ladies at the salon greeted me and my mini me's with enthusiasm, it always relieves stress to be at a place that kids are wanted. My little ones welcomed a new environment with toys, snacks and a TV and I welcomed the attached bathroom for my still potty training daughter. The kids are overseen by Chicago Nannies Inc. that are screened, experienced and engaging.
I got a blowout, which I never had before, but figured good hair could only make my day better. Tara was so sweet and did a great job.
My children asked when we could go back which only gives me incentive to get my waxing taken care of. I can always use a mani/pedi and I'm planning to invite my playgroup there for our next get together.
