Hi, I’m Charlotte’s Mommy

Let’s talk Mommy Cards.  Heard of them?  I hadn’t until I saw the adorable idea on Pinterest a couple of years ago.  Basically, they are business cards/contact cards for Moms.  I pinned them to my “Oh-Baby” board because I thought they were such a great thing to use.  Being a new mom and first time parent, I’m always looking for situations to meet other Moms.  How easy and great is it to just hand over a simple card to exchange contact information when meeting a new mom!  Plus you look like one of those Moms who have it all together (when in reality you do not and swear you’ll never forget that one pump part when packing for work the next day only to forget it and have to run to Target so you can find some relief…seriously (ugh!) this has happened!).

I received an email that inspired me to explore tiny prints new collection of mommy contact cards. I was super excited to check them out!  Here are some of my favorites:










And my favorite that I customized…





Now I just need to find some mommy groups, play groups, etc. to meet these new moms!  Any suggestions for this?

This is fantastic! I may have to order some once our little one arrives.

this is such an adorable idea. i had never heard of it until now. i think i might have to dabble in designing something like this for my etsy shop! and good luck finding mommy groups/play groups. my bestie is involved with those kinds of groups in fort thomas and loves them!

Have you looked at any classes such a Little Gym or Gymboree? That's how Ive found some mommy friends... :)

Love these - what a fun idea to be able to share contact info with people you meet, even if you're just at story time at the library or whatever. (And yes, every time I try to be "put-together mom" we either end up leaving the house with dried spit up on both of our cute outfits, or we end up with the baby still in his PJs so we can arrive on time, ha!)

Oh, and other than library story time (which starts at 6 months old at my branch) and the stroller workout thing I did, I haven't really found mom groups yet... but a blog reader who I met & went to the stroller workout with joked that we should start our own group because she knows a few people with babies of a similar age - so I'll let you know if we get together again!

Also, I've heard from some other moms that the children's museum is great for all ages, even babies, so I thought we might check that out soon - and it might be a good place to meet people with your cute mommy cards :)
