Give Your Mom Some LOVE!

by | Apr 28, 2013 | Sponsored | 2 comments

Mark your calendars… It happens EVERY. YEAR. … Mother’s Day.

The day we get to celebrate the lives that gave us life.

Or at least be all, “Hey… thanks Mom…”

Since I am a mom, I am TOTALLY on board with this holiday! Mama deserves a little thanks… a nod… a clever sentiment… a hug.

I’ve been thinking about the best advice I’ve ever received about motherhood.

Let me tell ya… I have received A LOT of advice. Not all of it solicited… ::ahem::

At this point in my mothering, I think the best words of advice I’ve been given have been,


MAN ALIVE. It DOES go fast.

My oldest is nearly 14, and my girls are 8 & almost 11. There was a point when I could not imagine life without a diaper bag and 5 point harness car seats. Now we are talking about when my son can get a Facebook profile and dealing with 5th grade girl drama.

There are times I long for the days I could strap my babies in a carseat. No peer pressure. Toddler bullying is way different that preteen bullying.

Yet, I am so in love with the life I have with my kids right here right now. Since I look back and long to snuggle the little people my kids once were, I am certain that in 10 years when they are almost 24, 21, and 18 I am going to miss these crazy days too.

So, I pass on the best advice I’ve been given onto you:


Not that you asked. But I know what I’m talking about.

Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away. Our mamas deserve a little love… for all those poopy diapers and eye-rolling we did, and I have discovered a charming way to give some love to our very deserving mamas…!
