When a mother bird feeds her young by regurgitating partially digested food, her chicks return the favor by presenting her with homemade cards and breakfast-in-nest. Reap the benefits of maternal love with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one VIP ticket to mom's the word! on April 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Connecticut Convention Center (a $20 value). Children 12 and under and seniors 65 and up are free. The VIP tickets cannot be purchased anywhere else.
Celebrating all things matronly, mom's the word! offers a pre-Mother's Day showcase populated by numerous exhibitors, product demonstrations, and other activities. Strike Mother's Day gold with a cornucopia of exhibitors such as Jafra, Creative Memories, Thirty One, Silpada, and Massage Envy. With a VIP ticket, matriarch meeting-goers will be automatically entered into more than 50 giveaway drawings. A panel of veteran mothers will be speaking, sharing reflections on their own motherly journeys and 54 different ways to re-phrase "because I said so."
Desserts from Panera Bread silence grousing stomachs and keeps moms fueled for the day's events. Miniature Michelangelos and petite Picassos can sculpt their own Mother's Day gifts in the CHET Kids' Corner with help from Bumblebug Art. All visitors will stroll away with an eco-friendly N'Take gift bag, filled with samples and goodies from the day's exhibitors.
