I have already seen a million Mother’s Day blogs, but why not add another?! Especially since this my first Mother’s Day and for many of you it will be your first! It’s really strange for me in fact. Sometimes I still look at my husband and say, “we have a human.” This tiny human has changed our lives dramatically (duh). The months leading up to this Mother’s Day have been filled with joy, laughter, and exhaustion.
I will never forget the day I became a mother. So many emotions swished through my body all at once. You can read more about his journey here. He’s 9 months old and on the move now! I couldn’t be more proud! A lot of my friends are just now getting pregnant, planning out their pregnancy, or are just a few months away. There is really nothing anyone can say or do to prepare you to welcome a new one in this world. Honestly, there is never a perfect time either. It’s a scary feeling, the unknown. Every mom’s journey is different, but just know you are not alone. Since having my babe, I think I have called my mom a million and one times over the tiniest things. Just another reason why my mom is awesome. I could only hope I do as great as she does.
Being a mom is amazing. I love it so much, definitely my greatest adventure. I now know what my parents were talking about when they said they worry all of the time. I don’t stop worrying and I can’t imagine how my mom did it with three daughters, haha! Like many of you out there, you may have a little one on your hands. Instead of getting flowers for the day, there might be other helpful items to receive on Mother’s Day to up your game as a mom! Not that you need to up your game, but these items will just be helpful ;-).
So make bath time easier with a cool bathtub or give that mom an energy boost with coffee! I know some of these aren’t the most traditional Mother’s Day gifts. Get out of the picture frame funk and do something different! Whatever you do, don’t leave your mom, wife, grandma, or whoever out this Sunday!
