Bend Moms for Moms is a free social network with more than 750 active members/users connecting and discussing the joys and grievances of motherhood in a very local and relevant context.
Launched in September 2010 by local mother Sarah Daily, Bend Moms for Moms provides a safe and supportive forum for mothers to discuss everything from play dates to potty training, prenatal fitness, learning disabilities, practicing patience, doctor and school recommendations, and free things to do with kids in Bend.
The site also hosts user-generated groups where moms can meet over common issues and activities, such as breastfeeding, home education, marathon running, cooking, local eating, snow sports and paddling. There is also a ‘Marketplace’ where moms can sell, buy and trade goods and a ‘Shop Mom!’ business directory where users are encouraged to support local mothers in business.
Daily is hoping that the connection started online will also be nurtured offline and around town. To help, she is planning to host several Bend Moms for Moms events in the coming months, including a charity event “Mommy Mingle” on June 1-2.

What does it mean to be a mom?
Quotes from Facebook
It means smiling when you're sad, laughing when you're exhausted.....and encouraging, even when you don't have an ounce left for yourself....It means smiling when you're sad, laughing when you're exhausted.....and encouraging, even when you don't have an ounce left for yourself....
Loving someone more than anything else in the world!
What does it mean to be a mom? To have incredible moments that surpass the days of wanting to do whatever I want to do, whenever I want to do something, and turning those days, years into a new adventure of amazement.
Amy Young Brown:
Being a mom is a gift. Given this little human, to love and nurture. Being a mom is the best thing in the whole wide world to be. ?
