May Events Made for Moms in Charlotte

From comedy to shopping

Mother’s Day is May 12. Of course all mothers cherish the handmade cards with handprints, but for all the “mothering” that you do, take some time for you. Here a couple ideas for making a date with other mom friends.

What Fresh Hell: Laughing in the Face of Motherhood

 For all the good days, there are days in the trenches, from potty accidents to sleep training. Amy Wilson, who kicked off her one-woman funny show “Mother Load” at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center's Stage Door Theater, returns with her What Fresh Hell podcast partner and writer Margaret Ables. The duo, who each have three kids, bring their comedy routine What Fresh Hell: Laughing in the Face of Motherhood Live! about all things motherhood to Booth Playhouse, May 9. Tickets start at $24.50.

Mother’s Day Sip and Shop at 7th Street Market

Gather your besties and head uptown to shop May 10 from 4:30 to 9 p.m. at this pop-up filled with local vendors. The first 100 people get a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. Stick around and have dinner at one of the market’s restaurants and then go explore the Charlotte Shout events at First Ward Park.
