Do you belong to a local mommies group?

I belong to a close knit group of fellow mommies in my area, and it is truly beneficial. We have play dates, get togethers, moms nights out, etc. I am part of the promotions committee and we get our name out there, but we don't have many new members. I'm wondering if you're part of a local mommies group what made you join? What made you stay? How did you hear about the group?

I belong to MOPS in my area. Actually I have to drive 45 minutes to get there because of living in a rural area, but I love it and it's what get's me out of town. Otherwise I'd hardly ever leave our small town. That's the main reason I joined. A cousin's wife invited me to go to MOPS so that 's how I started going, otherwise I probably wouldn't have heard about it. Since then i do go to another MOPS group that I feel more comfortable at and this is my second year as craft coordinator for our group. It's a lot of fun. I do wish we lived closer, I would participate in more things, like moms night out if it weren't so far to drive. I like the moms in our group and it's just nice to know that you're not the only one with kids going thru whatever it is you're going through at the time. We definately need mom friends when we are going thru the toddler years but I'm sure we'll still need friends just as much as our kids are growing up.

It is nice to have a play group for your kidos and moms. Sounds like you are looking to grow your group. Try this website: meetup.com. You can set up your group there in your area and find other mommies that are looking for the same things. I am a member of one by me called "tots at play"! I love the people I met and it is a great network of moms within about 30 -40 miles away from me. Good luck!

No, I'm not. I'm actually new to our neighborhood so I don't really go out much at all. I prefer to just stay at home. No mommies group or something.
