You've just finished scraping off play doh from the carpet, your three year old is refusing to take a nap, and your baby is not a happy camper that she can't play with the computer mouse. Ah, the joys of motherhood.

Mommyhood can be full of ups and downs, and that's why its great to have the support and encouragement from other moms. Here are a few moms groups in Dallas. If you live in the Dallas area, and are looking for a mom's group, here are some options for you.

What is MOPS?

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)

MOPS, which stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, is an international organization helping make life for moms a little easier. MOPS groups meet monthly, or twice a month, to fellowship and gain insight from a guest speaker. Childcare is usually provided.

There are several MOPS groups in the Dallas area at churches such as Preston Rd Church of Christ and Northwest Bible church. Most of the groups meet on Fridays. For a list of MOPS groups in Dallas visit the MOPS website here. If you are nervous about going to the first meeting, don't be. You might call the church office and ask about MOPS, and hopefully a fellow mom will make you feel at home.
