Kids, shopping, work, housework: If this sounds like your life, you know what it's like to feel overwhelmed and sometimes under-appreciated. Being a mom is hard work, and sometimes it can seem like nobody understands, like you're all alone. Many moms feel this way from time to time, which is why passing out mommy cards has become a hot trend today.
What are mommy cards?
Mommy cards are like personalized calling cards you can keep on-hand to hand out to other parents. They include contact information such as your name and phone number, and pretty much anything else you'd like to include. You could also include your children's ages and interests, your hobbies, and your phone number - though most mommy cards leave revealing information off the cards lest they fall into the wrong hands.
Why do I need mommy cards?
If the first paragraph above describes you, mommy cards are a great way to break the ice when you meet other parents and to arrange for play dates, car pools and other kid-oriented activities. They're also a great way to connect with other parents on an adult level. They're also great to put in a box or rolodex for quick access - children grow up together, and you're likely to share many experiences with other parents in your child's circle of friends and acquaintances. Trade them, and you can easily arrange for anything from birthday parties to night caps.
Who do I give my mommy cards to?
Give your mommy cards to any other parent whose child is in the same age range as yours, or whose child shares an interest with your child. It's a good idea to give your mommy card to parents you think you're likely to also get along with; but you can also give them to the parent of every kid in your child's class.
