I’m a MOP … What?

I just spent a little under an hour coloring. Don’t get me wrong–I LOVE coloring. I just don’t spend a lot of time doing it anymore. What got me coloring you ask? MOPS. 
I have a funny history with MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). My Mom was a Mentor Mom (a woman with children out of the preschool age who attends MOPS to offer wisdom) for a while, and I respected her involvement in it, but declared it would never be for me. I don’t do crafts. I don’t love to cut coupons. I didn’t think I’d need to talk (so much) about my child … My friend Becky practically forced me to join MOPS as a way to meet people and get out of the house in my new town. 
It was a good decision.
Tonight, I colored. (Making matching games for Joshua!) And because of MOPS, Joshua and I played with wagon wheel pasta today. And I just sat back, laughed at my son, made funny noises, and enjoyed the “process”. I enjoyed the process of play, the process of bonding, the process of teaching, the process of … cleaning … 🙂
Look at him developing fine motor skills!
Yay for pre-math skills! 🙂
What a helper … Loving the process!
Thanks MOPS for equipping this MOP with fun activities–something OTHER than “keep the technology away from the baby…” 🙂

(this is the point in the process when I realized we were nearing the close of this fine activity….)
