We are a local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) and MOMSnext group that is hoping to create an encouraging, fun and relaxing community for moms in the Tracy, CA area. MOPS/MOMSnext is for any mom who has an infant through Jr High Schooler or pregnant, or in the process of adoption. Volunteers (MOPPET workers) dedicate their time to watch our kids while moms enjoy food, speakers, activities, and time connecting with other moms. Below you’ll find a detailed description of what you can expect on any given Tuesday. If you’d like to join us for a meeting, check out our other links about getting registered and meeting and schedule details.
ELEMENTS OF A MEETING…
Food and Fellowship
We share our experiences, learn from one another, and support each other. MOPS meetings are a wonderful place to build friendships and have fun with other moms… all while enjoying yummy food and drinking a hot beverage!
Real talk is liberating. It frees us from assumptions that we are alone in our struggles. We value taking a risk and sharing your story in order to heal someone else from their isolation.
Really, who needs another tutorial on how to make crepe paper flowers? What we provide is mommy friends who get you, hope-filled insight, and speakers who know we’ve only had three hours of uninterrupted sleep last night so they better keep it interesting.
Create, imagine, and actually finish a project. We occasionally like to have something “pinteresty” (Yes, that is a made up word. Work with me here.) to make at our meetings. We all need a little time to indulge in a creative endeavor.
Look, we all love our kids, but let’s be honest: a little break now and then makes us want to be with them even more. We provide a preschool-style experience for your kiddos that they will love going back to. Our MOPPET workers go through a background check and get fingerprinted.
Sometimes we need a wise woman who has been there and done that to bounce ideas off of. That’s why we love our Mentor moms, they have sage advice and willing ears.
You have the ability to do big things. We want to help you gain the confidence to use your voice to change your world.
