As moms, we have constant companions. Little companions, who need their noses and bums wiped, but companions nonetheless. One might assume, then, that we never get lonely. Ha! Okay, wipe up that coffee you just snorted out of your nose. Of course, we’re joking! Being a mom can be one of the loneliest jobs on the planet.
We need friends. Not just any friends. Mom friends.
Other moms in our life stage who understand the stress of teething, have a tried and true diaper rash treatment, expect to get your voicemail because she doesn’t have time to actually talk either, and understands the need to cancel a play date last minute when an unexpected runny nose appears.
MOPS stands for Mothers of PreSchoolers, an international organization whose mission is to meet the needs of every mom with children from birth through kindergarten. There is a local chapter at Scottsdale Bible Church (Shea Boulevard and Miller Road). In fact, the new year starts this Thursday and Scottsdale Mom’s Blog is giving away registration fee for one lucky reader!
That’s a $100 value that includes your MOPS International registration for the 2013-2014 year, MOPPETS care for your children, special speakers and crafts!
MOPS @ Scottsdale Bible Church meets on the first and third Thursday of every month, from 9:30-11:30am. This year’s theme is the Journey of Motherhood. Speakers will stop by to discuss education, home organization, cooking tips, and women’s health.
Moms also enjoy breakfast and socializing while their children are lovingly cared for nearby in our MOPPETS program. There will also be many opportunities to bond together outside of our meeting times through play dates and parties.
There is a place for you at MOPS @ Scottsdale Bible Church!
