Meetup Moms of Tucson Pages
Welcome to another great year with Meetup Moms of Tucson! We are so happy to have you and your family in the group! We are always happy to have new members and are always looking for new things to do. Our group is full of supportive local moms (dads are welcome at most events, too) looking for friendship, advice, and fun for the kiddies. We have activities all over Tucson: book club, park playdates, home playdates, craft dates, special events and a Mom and Dad nights out at least once a month. We aim to be inclusive of all types of families and parenting styles.
In hoping to make this year our best year ever, we have decided that our goal for 2017 is to move beyond the superficial and to BE OURSELVES!!!
Parenting is hard work. Relationships are tough. Sometimes we feel like we have it all together and sometimes we feel like we're falling apart. With over 100 families in Meetup Moms, chances are great that there is another mom (or 100) experiencing the same challenges and triumphs as you. You are not alone!
Many of us have already learned how supportive the moms of Meetup Moms can be in the face of life's ups and downs. However, newer members might not realize what a wonderful resource other moms can be!
The truth is, nobody expects perfection– just authenticity. It is easy to share the great news in your life, but admitting that you need support, even when surrounded by non-judgmental friends, can be very difficult. Many of us have been conditioned to strive for that 'Super Mom' illusion– something we instinctively know doesn't even exist!
Let's be ourselves in 2017! When we decide to share in both life's joys and sorrows, when we feel comfortable enough to really communicate and move beyond "I'm fine, how are you?" to "I'm having a tough day"- only then do we open the door for meaningful conversation and real friendship.
So make the effort to engage in real conversations– to ask someone how they are and really listen to their answer– and to give real answers of your own! Post a supportive note on the facebook page when a friend needs you, or make time to send a personal email, make a phone call, or bring a meal.
Reach out and be real! Whether it is to lift someone else up, or to sustain yourself, you will be glad you did!
