I apologize in advance for not bringing pictures with me. I forgot my stinkin camera last week.
I hate it when that happens!
And I apologize in advance for any guys that may be reading today! This post has bra talk in it. If your delicate eyes can't handle such a think go read this. It's a little sappy but it's about my dad...and he's a guy. So...yea...it's kinda guyish I guess.
Today's post is about something very important. Very, very important. Today's post is about mother's retaining their sanity. At all cost. Oh yes and bras.
Really...what good is a mother who has TOTALLY lost it? I mean really...how effective can you be?
I find that in order to keep my sanity as a mother I need short breaks away from the house. For things such as shopping trips, pedicures, time with friends...and MOPS.
Now...before I go on I must tell you. My friend RH had to drag me to MOPS in the beginning. I was reluctant. I was a newly moved mother of a 6 month old deep in the throws of a nasty case of a Moving Funk double with a shot of Post Partum Blues (or so my doc called it) on the side. RH made me go...and I'm so glad she did. She knew I needed it.
MOPS or Mothers of PreSchoolers is a group for...mothers of preschoolers.
Our MOPS group meets once a month in the evening. I think some meet in the day and have childcare. You can check out their website here.
This month we had a lady that owns a bra boutique come and talk about bras and finding the right fit. Now I don't know about y'all...but I have had bra problems my entire life! The riding up in the back...the falling down straps...the gapping on the cup. Oh the bra problems I have had! So...I have never been so grateful for MOPS than I was last Thursday. I was fitted...and given a 10% discount card. Can't beat that with a Kitchen Aid!
Oh discount card to A La Mode...where have you been all my bra wearing life?
Check out A La Mode's website here.
We also had a Pilates instructor show us a few moves. She is a member of our MOPS group but I had no idea she was also a Pilates instructor...for 6 years I might add!
No wonder she's so skinny and stands up straight!
Anyway...she showed us a few moves and let me just tell you...my soreness for the next two days felt freakin fabulous! Not really...but I was proud of myself for trying. It was hard y'all...so very hard! And oh the painful that it was! But, I wanted to keep doing it. I want to go again! Can you believe it?! I WANT TO EXERCISE!
Crazy I know.
I may be in Crazyville...hold on let me check...
No I'm here...I seriously am wanting to do Pilates.
Lord help us all. What is happening to me?
It may or may not be stemming from a fear of pregnancy and the pain it caused me the first go round. I'll ponder that and get back with you.
So back to MOPS. We also have snacks and we get to chit chat and we usually do a craft of some sort. Which are usually always easy and fun.
I have found it's a great way to meet people and socialize with other moms who are going through or recently have been through the same things you are going through. Since it's for moms of little ones. I have really enjoyed it and thought I would share that with you today.
Go check it out...if you have a preschooler.
If you don't...sorry...take some bra advice and go to a bra boutique. They aren't as expensive as you might think! AND...apparently...80% of all women are wearing the wrong bra size.
And ladies...we have to wear the stinkin thing everyday...lets get one that at least feels good!
