Over the past four years, I've met hundreds of amazing women through FIT4MOM Baltimore City. HUNDREDS. Who knew that this little idea Lisa Druxmanhad sixteen years ago would impact my life in such a huge way. Do you know what's happened to far too many of those amazing women? They've moved away. And I'm not going to lie-- it's such a hard pill to swallow.

The Myths of Motherhood are numerous, and I imagine we know them all. Myths like:Mothers are always patient, Mothers are always selfless, there is a right and a wrong way to parent, and you should be enjoying every momentmake us feel like we are doing it all wrong when our babies refuse to sleep, our toddlers throw tantrums, or when we take time away from the home to pursue our own interests. Ultimately, buying into myths can leave us depleted and discouraged.

One of the many wonderful things about Fit4Mom is the opportunity to spend time with other moms and their children. Following Stroller Stridesclasses on Mondays, Fit4Mom hosts a short playgroup which features a cool toddler-themed activity, craft, or trip. Stroller Strides playgroups are a great place for new moms and their littles to socialize and to make new friends.
