Much Needed Mommy Time

Every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, during the school year, I get 2 hours to myself. Two wonderful hours without children to visit with women who don't balk at talk of poop, pee, and potty training.

I love my children dearly, but I don't have family close by, nor a regular babysitter. So I relish 2 hours alone with other moms who know what I'm going through with young children.

I attend a MOPS group (Mothers of Preschoolers). If you're a mom and need encouragement, support, or just common ground with other moms....find a group near you at It's an international organization, so you're bound to find one near you. It is totally worth it. I've been attending since 2006 and have to say I'm a better mother because of it. At least a happier mother on those days.

Where do you find time to socialize with others like yourself? Enjoy!
