Working in a marketing office since college, I was so very used to carrying and doling out business cards, and after my oldest Elijah was born, I had forgotten all about that part of corporate life.
But, now I have it back! I have mommy cards. My husband bought me my first set of mommy cards a few months after the birth of our now 5 year old. I was so thrilled!
What are mommy cards for?
My mommy cards provide me a way to interact with other mommies in what seems to be a professional (motherhood is a profession!) and organized way. Whenever I meet a fellow mom at the park, grocery store, or even preschool, I share my mommy card. This allows me the opportunity to effectively communicate my name, the name of my kids, phone number, email, etc… You never know when a fellow mommy might want to get together for a playgroup, might want to check out my blog, or become friends! I’d hate to think of the relationships that I would have missed out on if I didnt have a mommy card to hand to a few folks.. Right AnnLouise? Right Chris?
What do you put on mommy cards?
- Phone Number
- Name of your kids
- Ages of your kids
- facebook name
- twitter name
- linkedin name
- Your favorite restaurants
- Your favorite parks and play places
- Your home town
- Where you went to school
Yes, yes, this is a lot of personal information, but you can use mommy cards as great conversation starters! If your goal is to get to know someone, then, feed the fire! Being friends online is one thing, but, real relationships with real people mean A LOT.
