Lauren joined a M.O.P.S. (Mothers Of Pre-Schoolers) group a few months back. MOPS provides a good place for Maxfield to meet other kids and for Lauren to meet other moms and learn crafts. Since Lauren has a masters degree in craft-ology she goes just for the social aspect of the group.
Every time she tells me she is going, she says,"I am going the MOPS meeting." I always chuckle because I picture a bunch of women drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes in the basement of a church telling their story.
"Hi. I'm Lauren."
"We love you Lauren."
"I hit rock bottom when I had my second kid in June....."
The other day she was telling me about the upcoming events at MOPS.
"Then we are going to tour a firehouse. Which will be cool for Maxfield to see the fire engines up close. Oh and they are also hosting a moms exchange. "
"Oh really." I said. "Who do I get in exchange for you?"
"Well, there are some real cuties there at MOPS."
