Whether you are expecting your first child or a seasoned veteran who can wrangle your tiny ones without spilling your latte- spending time with other mothers is important to your emotional health. The pregnancy and postpartum periods are full of hormonal surges and emotional exhaustion; not to mention the stress of your body becoming a human ark and then the human equivalent of a jersey cow. It’s hard. And just as your beautiful little mini-me starts to sleep long enough for you to feel rested, then they hit a growth spurt and become mommy-velcro.
Few people understand the demands you are under the way other mothers do. Being able to share the joys and stresses of parenting is pivotal to staying sane. So it is important to get involved in the groups near you.
If you live in Southern California, Moms of SoCal is a group to check out. Moms of SoCal is a group that is dedicated to educating and supporting parents from prenatal to preschool. You don’t want to miss their upcoming event: Prenatal to Preschool Party. It is going to have lots of fun activities for kids under 5 years old and great vendors. It will be a wonderful family-friendly day.
I will be there with my family and hope to see you and yours. I would love to meet you; so make sure you say “Hi”!
