Mean things I make women do for my own entertainment

 The first and third Thursday of each month are always great for me because I go to MOPS.  I have already expressed my love for MOPS, so I won't go into that again, but I will repeat that I really do love this group of ladies!

One of my jobs at the MOPS meeting is to do announcements.  I think I got this job because I have a big mouth and, although it is the number one fear of most people, I have no problems with public speaking.  The only people I couldn't speak in front of would be these guys:

I will never be the keynote speaker at a clown convention because that is MY number one fear.  I almost had a panic attack just Googling clowns.  

My other job at MOPS is to do a game or ice breaker.  Since I don't actually have to participate, I try to find something very embarrassing to make the other moms do.  Why?  Because it is really funny for me to watch them.  Mean?  Yes, but so far I haven't been fired from my job so I am going to keep doing it.

Since Halloween is a few weeks away and I was coming up with the game while watching Project Runway, I decided to give the ladies supplies to make a Halloween costume.  This is what those wacky moms came up with:

I love that the moms in my group are such good sports.  I love that they can be silly and not take themselves too seriously.  Being a mom is such a hard job and it is great that twice a month we can get together for fellowship and fun.  So moms of FBC MOPS, I salute you and thanks for the laughs today!!


  1. Oh gosh, I remember the days of MOPS. Thanks for bringing back some very fond memories for glad that you enjoy it so much!

  2. oh this looks too fun! I miss your blog and hope to get back here and catch up on all that I've missed in the last week! I missed my moms group today and I'm bummed. :(

  3. Looks like fun!! I've never even heard of MOPS....

  4. That's great! I just went to my first MOPS meeting today! Although they've re-branded it here and it's called Moms I.N.C. but it's the same idea. I think I would love your MOPS group and I would totally get into the games and ice breakers, haha!

  5. Wow! They are much more creative than I would be in that situation. Good for you for motivating them. You're the perfect person for both of those jobs.

  6. Mops is new to me but kinds sounds fun even though I am only a mom to a cats and dogs.....I know, I know I'm not really a mom but hope to be soon and really love hearing your thoughts on mothorhood (I looks at your older MOPS post).

    Get Up & Go

  7. This looks like so much fun!! I would love to join a MOPS group but they are hard to find around here for working moms.
