When playing outside the library with my kids awhile ago, another mom noticed that our littlest guy was wearing a cloth diaper. She introduced herself and let me know about a cloth diapering co-op and support group in the area. Then she reached into her diaper bag and pulled out a “business card” with her name, email and the google group info for the CD group.
I admit that I was a little taken aback. A business card? For her email and a diaper group?
But the reality is that I probably would have forgotten about the group if she hadn’t handed me the card. Or, if I had tried to input her email address into my smartphone while trying to make sure that my child didn’t fall into the library fountain, I would have probably mistyped it.
Does anyone have “mommy cards”? Do you use them? Is it weird? I was thinking they could be helpful after Sunday mass when I see a new young family and want to invite them to our moms group, but am simultaneously trying to keep my kids out of the church fountain (my kids clearly have issues when in close proximity to fountains). I can see people using it to pass on their blog info as well, though I think I would feel too shamelessly self-promoting to do that.
