The Only Six Words Parents Need to Say to Their Kids About Sports-Or Any Performance

I would add “I love watching you.” to this list too!

Based on psychological research, the three healthiest statements moms and dads can make as [kids] perform are:
Before the Competition:
Have fun.
Play hard.
I love you.
After the competition:
Did you have fun?
I’m proud of you.
I love you.

MOPS Meeting

Hi wonderful moms!

This month, let’s put our crafting hands away and pull out our thumbs (green or otherwise). During our next meeting, Friday, March 21, we’ll be planting succulent gardens.

MOPS will provide the soil and plants, but you’re responsible for your own pot. Make it roughly 4 inches wide and 4 inches deep with drainage holes. We’ll have a few extras should someone forget.

Now for the usual details:

_ Table 3 has breakfast.
_ We meet from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., with childcare starting at 9:15.
_ We know some of you have kiddos who’ll be on spring break during the next two meetings. You are welcome to bring them to MOPPETS if needed! Just shoot us an e-mail (oflcmops@gmail.com) beforehand so we can be prepared.

See you Friday!

Melissa and Amy.
