Position – Finance
Kids/Family – Lily (3 ½) Hayden (2 ½ months)
Favorite MOPS memory – I have many favorite MOPS memories! Do I have to choose one? I guess I would have to say that I most enjoy the Moms Time Outs. Necklace making, fondant class, meet and greets and so much more! I can’t choose just one!
Why did you join steering – I joined steering as a personal challenge. I tend to be a shy person and get a little too comfortable with my simple day to day life. I knew I needed to branch out and meet other moms. I needed to challenge myself and step outside of my comfort zone. It was announced at my very first MOPS meeting that the crafts position was open. This was right up my alley. I decided to dive right in and go for it. This ended up being a great decision. The friendships and comradery I have experience by being a part of steering has been amazing. After 2 years doing crafts, I am now giving finance a try.
What are you most looking forward to for this year of mops – I am most looking forward to learning. The knowledge I have gained from other MOPS moms over the past 2 years is priceless. In terms of raising a preschooler and getting through all the stages that crop up between birth and age 5, some moms have been there before, some are there right now and some have yet to get there. Each of us has different experiences and knowledge to share. It’s fun to share the good times with friends, but also good to know that you are not alone during the rough times. I think there is truly something special and powerful about a woman’s relationship and bond with other women.
