Our MOPS group is a dynamic, inviting environment where moms can come just as they are to build friendships, be encouraged, and gain practical parenting strategies. All while their children are lovingly cared for in the MOPPETS program.

This week at MOPS

It was a PINK day at MOPS at Real Life this past week.  You all looked pretty in pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness.  This week's Topic was Core:  Who Am I?  The DVD discussed a mom's personality (playful, powerful, proper and peaceful) and how your core influences her mothering.  Understanding our own personality as well as our children's brings clarity to our strengths and struggles in the act of mothering. 

This week's discussion questions included:
1.  Share something about yourself that reveals your personality type.
2.  How have you seen your personality influence your mothering style?
3.  Is your child's personality the same or different from your own?  How do you navigate that?
4.  What is one part of your personality that you can utilize this week as you mother your kids?
For more information on determining your personality profile, check out

Our next meeting dates: Nov. 2 and 3…. Finese: our mothering styles—learning to accept mothering advice from others and tweaking it to fit our personal mothering styles. 

Don't forget, the Real Life Fall Fest is next Friday, October 29th from 4-10pm. Log onto to get your wrist band for rides.  See you there!
