Moms of all ages with children in all stages of life are welcome to join Mom's Morning Out.
The fall session called "Changes" begins with a breakfast at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday Sept. 28 at Community Wesleyan Church. The group will continue to meet at 9:30 a.m. Tuesdays for six weeks, except Oct. 12 when there is no school. Childcare is available for $2 per child per session.
The program starts with "little" changes - from a bottle to a cup, from two naps a day to one. It continues with changes in behavior, changes in friendships and changes in independence.
"We celebrate with our kids as they change from grade school to middle school. We change their responsibilities and the corresponding privileges. Maybe in time we find that we are changing our vacations to coincide with college breaks and changing our cell phone plans to include our older children," said Amy Tetta, a program representative. "As moms, change is inevitable. We can face these changes with an attitude of excitement and acceptance, or we can kick and fight against each stage of change and make it all harder than it really has to be."
What changes are you (or your child) going through right now? Mom's Morning Out will introduce you to other moms out there who are going through them too, or who have gone through them and lived to tell about it.
This year, Mom's Morning Out participants will also look at Psalm 121 and discover how to embrace the changes life brings.
"We'll look at how God is with us through those changes and how we can have stability in Him even when everything around us seems new and challenging," Tetta said. "We'll gain encouragement from each other as we experience this journey of motherhood together."
