MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) has become near and dear to my heart. MOPS is a group of moms who get together once or twice a month, usually at a church, for mom time. Anyone with a child birth through kindergarten can join. Most groups have food, fellowship, crafts, speakers, etc. Childcare is also provided at most places so you get to enjoy everything without keeping an eye on a child. Our meetings are a little bit different each time but they always start with breakfast. I look forward to that little bit of time each month where I can eat without someone else helping themselves to my plate and having time to grow as a person, not just a mom, through speakers and activities. Although this group isn't exactly a way to live on less, it helps me to be a better mom and that is better than saving money. A person once told me that babysitting is much cheaper than therapy and I wholeheartedly agree. The few dollars I spend on each meeting is even cheaper than babysitting and I get to do something more exciting than running errands or cleaning the house while my child is being taken care.

This year's theme is Adventures in Mothering. I love this theme because anyone who is a mother knows that it is a new adventure every day. If you are interested in finding a MOPS group in your area, click here.
