Getting the MomSense Started

Vogelweh MOPS kicked off the year with our first meeting yesterday!  I was super excited about the amount of food!  Best brunch ever!

And I was also super excited about the ladies!  I didn't expect it to be such a small group... I thought it would be really big and maybe a little hard to feel connected.  But with less than 25, I think it's going to be a great group of gals to learn about being a great Momma with.  I'm looking forward to learning from and getting encouragement about mom-stuff at these meetings!  Did I mention there's free childcare?  Heck yes!

We meet two Wednesdays a month for the actual MOPS meeting (to include food, fellowship, and usually a guest speaker) and then twice a month on the off weeks for a play date/family outing. 

The theme for the year is a game theme, which I think it super cute.

Some of the meeting topics I'm excited about include: Hi-Ho Cherry-O on portions and eating right, Taboo on intimacy issues, Battleship on organizing a home that looks like a war zone, Apples to Apples on seeing eye to eye with your spouse, and Uno on taking time to care for yourself. 

They say that we'll be learning all sorts of "MomSense" this year (get it?  "Mom intuition + Common Sense = MomSense!") and I'm really excited about it!

A big thank you to Amber for getting me the info on this great group!  I think Wednesdays are going to be very good days! 


  1. Yay! That's awesome, Jess! It makes me wanna join our MOPS. I love the theme. Looking forward to reading about your MOPS experiences.

  2. Yay MOPS! I really enjoyed my time last year, but I am joining a new group this year because of scheduling...and it's less than 5 minutes from my house compared to the 20 minute drive last year! Hope it goes as well as your first meeting did!

  3. I know Amber! It's cause you're such a hottie ;o)
