About the Moms' Expo
Being a mother is one of the most important, rewarding, and challenging jobs that most women will ever have. In addition to all the outside pressures, mothers often have an internal desire to be "perfect" - to have perfect children, a perfect marriage, a perfect home, and often a perfect career.

It's impossible to be "perfect" and to be "everything" to everyone. Children grow up too fast, and as mothers we want to be focusing our energies on the "right" things so we don't miss out on the important moments as our children grow.

The goal of this Moms' Expo is to help mothers of all ages and stages of parenting to enjoy motherhood and everyday life: by finding balance, having realistic expectations of themselves and their children, and living in the moment. What better way to accomplish this than to have local mothers share their experience/knowledge in an informal small group setting- where brainstorming is encouraged as mothers come together and share ideas, tips, etc.
