As many of you know, I hosted my first event on Saturday! It was an intimate “Moms and Mimosas” get together with NightLight Pediatrics! I was anxious about how it would go, since it was my first event and all. For a rookie blogger, I think it went pretty well! I learned a lot of lessons about how to be a proper hostess, which I’ll go over in a later post. I want to dedicate this post to talking about NightLight Pediatrics and WHY I was honored to host this sponsored event!
Let’s rewind back to November 2016, the first time that my husband and I went on a trip without Baby E. As a first time mom, I was obviously terrified of leaving her. I researched every little thing in efforts to make sure she was taken care of while we were away.
Literally, everything… I even got a Will notarized, just in case.
While researching, I stumbled upon an after hours pediatric urgent care and thought, “OH MY GOSH, THIS IS GOLD!”
I personally feel like the scariest accidents happen late at night when nothing is open and no one is available. Just knowing that there was a clinic within a 10 mile radius that was open late, gave me a little peace of mind.
So, on my list of instructions that was already longer than a CVS receipt, I happily added NightLight Pediatrics, along with its address and phone number.
Like I said, just having knowledge of this facility gave me peace of mind for any late night accidents. When they asked me to host this event and learn more about the facility, I was easily on board. After touring the facility and meeting the staff, I feel even better! So, I want to share what I learned about the facility at the Moms and Mimosas event!
1. The office is very “kid-friendly”.
This is a no-brainer for most pediatric clinics. This specific location knocked it OUT OF THE PARK with its decor. Outside, they have a chalk board to draw on and almost every kid that walked by wanted to draw. This is definitely good for those moments when you have a long wait!
Inside of each room of the facility, there are really creative designs unique to each room. My personal favorite was the dinosaur room. Baby E loved the butterfly room. Each room also had glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling! This was actually E’s FAVORITE thing!
2. The staff really love their jobs!
I had to take Baby J with me and of course, the ladies LOVED him! I love it when pediatricians enjoy getting to know the kids that come into the office! Each member that I met showed so much passion for the profession!
3. They have more services than most pediatric offices.
While on the tour, I saw that they had an x-ray machine! How many pedi clinics do you know that has an x-ray machine?! On their website, there is this list that showcases more of their services.Another cool feature, you can log-in online and request a spot in line at the facility.
4. They have their own blog where they answer TONS of questions!
