Today we ventured out to join one of our local chapters of MOPS. My mother in law has been telling me to join since before B was born, but I was always a little skeptical, mostly because of the name = Mothers of PreSchoolers. It always made me stop and wonder if my kid was actually supposed to be in preschool. But when I heard that two of my dear friends were in this particular group and it didn't interfere with my pilates schedule, I immediately wanted to sign up.
We came, we participated. We conquered.
I'm so happy with how well B did. It's two hours and fifteen minutes of him in a playroom with other two year olds, without me! Last year, 20 minutes at the Y was impossible. Two years ago, an hour and half of bible study was hell. But this year? Pure golden. I really, truly enjoyed the small break to interact with other moms and I really liked the moms in my small group. B was so happy when I went to his room- he'd been playing with trains, snacking on goldfish, and coloring- what more could he (or I) want?!
I'm so thankful for my group of mom friends that I have here and I'm always happy to find more to get involved with. To find out more about your local MOPS- check out MOPS International... it's awesome, trust me!
