Wendy Ilderton – Coordinator

IMG_3941Wendy has been married to James for 19 years. She has four kids Ashley is 22 and in college at UGA, Go DAWGS!, Lauryn is 18, Matthew is 14, and Luke is 8 Wendy has been part of a MOPS group for 13 years and a coordinator for 6 years. Wendy also is a nurse and works nights. So if you see her looking a little tired at the meetings it’s probably because she worked the night before. On her free time she loves to cook, watch her kids play sports, and she loves all things football, especially Georgia football.Three unique things about Wendy are 1. She lived in Germany for 41/2 years. 2. I can be really shy at times. 3. As much as I like being out doing things I really like being at home.
A few parenting tips from Wendy are…

  1. Remember not all kids are the same so what works for one may not work for your child.
  2. Give yourself a break! It’s ok if things are not perfect all the time.
  3. Enjoy every stage of your child because one day you will be sending them off to College wishing you could go back to when they were little.
