Calling all Metro area moms! Are you raising a family in Washington DC or one of its suburbs? Are you looking to connect with other moms in Fairfax, Rockville, Loudoun, or Frederick? Then point your browser to for the latest in online family fun!

The Metro DC Mom Blog also has a serious side: preventing water pollution, addressing concerns about tap water safety, and encouraging household water conservation. In between the fun tidbits and helpful tips, the writers for the Metro DC Mom Blog will include periodic reminders and public service messages on topics such as proper disposal of household chemicals, tap water safety updates, and ways to save money and reduce water waste at home.

"As local governments, we're always looking for ways to make the Washington metro area the best place possible for the whole family," said Stuart Freudberg, environmental program director for the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. "We're launching this blog to provide local moms with a fun and informal way to learn about the opportunities, services, and requirements that local governments have for them."

"Who says government has to be dull? Visitors will find the information they need mixed in with a healthy dose of empathy, humor, and heartwarming stories," said Eric Eckl, principal for Water Words That Work, LLC, which will produce the Metro DC Mom Blog under contract to the council. "Funny videos, cute stories, helpful tips, we'll it all."
