Should we start an “Aunties Clique”?!

July 30, 2008

I am on the road pitching Mommies Clique in Chicago this week, actively recruiting Chief Mommie Organizers (CMOs) in Chicago, San Fran and New York! Know anyone? 

Someone told me about a new community called Savvy Auntie.  What a cool idea!  Everyone—including me–has been talking about the “Power of Mommies” and Mommie bloggers but what about The Power of Aunties?  I have to think there is tremendous spending power there. 

Savvy Auntie says” Though many women opt not to have their own children, that doesn’t mean they don’t dote on the kids in their life.” and  is a “parenting site for non-parents” targeting PANKS–“Professional Aunts, No Kids”.  The site includes recommendations for activities indoors, outdoors or from a long-distance, age appropriate gift ideas, and a forum to share tips.

As Auntie to precious Ava, Alex, Robert, Levi and Hannah you can bet I am going to check it out to make sure I am doing “All Things Auntie”!  Love it.  Melanie Notkin is a genius!
