Kelly’s Comments: According to the website, “Moms & their tots are invited to join us for a story time read by Once & Again Books, crafts, and a snack. Every mom who attends with their tot will receive a FREE gallon of 365 Everyday Value Organic Milk with $30 purchase.” I am a little annoyed by the presumptive use of “Mom” (what about male caregivers?! Hello, gender equity!), but not enough to form a picket line or anything. Oh, who am I kidding, I’d move into Whole Foods if they’d let me live in a little corner of their store. I do love me some Whole Foods and all its organic, gluten-free, local vendor, composting goodness. In addition to story times, this location also offers various summer kids’ offerings such as yoga and food tastings.
Update! The store has stopped referring to it as “Mommy and Me” and now calls it “Caretaker and Me” or other non-gender-specific titles. Way to go, Whole Foods!
