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 http://www.mops.org/. 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!
