New to Plano or a New Mom?
Having other moms to talk with about your job as a mom is really important. Being a mom is hard work, and can be very isolating. As a new mom you’re home alone with a little being that is all “me, me, me” and it’s easy to get overwhelmed and think you’re doing everything wrong. As your kids grow up the daily tasks change and so do the challenges. Having other moms to touch base with is huge.
