MOPS and POPS

Filed under: MOPS, POPS! — Tags: , , , , — BrianOFlan @ 14:23

Brian and Christa team-wrote the MOPS newsletter this year (2009-2010, MOPS follows the school year).

Christa was in charge of publication so she had to cultivate advertisements and fire up Corel Draw to lay out two or three articles with small useful information on the side or a featured MOPS bio.

Brian’s job was to fire up the men-folk.  Behind Christa’s group of 80 MOPS women are about 80 men who are equally exasperated with their babies and toddlers.  But we’re just not into crafts and motivational warm-fuzzies.

Thus began POPS!, the male counter-positive to MOPS.  While MOPS stands for Mothers Of PreSchoolers, POPS! is not an acronym.  It’s an explosion.

For anyone out there who is a father or has been a father or will be a father or knows little kids that drive him nuts, here are some selected excerpts highlighting the brief and glorious debut of POPS!

Christa’s introduction to the POPS! concept and the Men Are from Mars series.

For the next few weeks, Christa and I will cross-post some of our favorite articles from there to here.  We are that vain.
