What kind of blog posts are your favorite?
I like them ALL.
BUT - My very favorite blog posts are ones where the writer gives a little "snapshot" of her life or her day (preferably with photos). It's somehow comforting to know that all moms have struggles, that no mom is perfect, that it's normal to have toys strewn across the living room and no idea what to make for dinner at 5 o'clock.
I appreciate knowing that I'm not the only one with a grumpy toddler who wants me to make "noodles!" for every meal. I'm not the only mom who has had to change my clothes three times today because my baby spit up on me, my 2-year-old sprayed me with the hose, and I spilled lunch on myself while trying to eat one-handed. I'm not the only mom who doesn't get perfect family pictures. Right?
Motherhood is a tough job. Period. It's the hardest one I've ever had, to be sure.
So, for Mother's Day...I don't really want products as much as I want a break (anyone with me?). I just want a moment - a day - a week to not do something that I normally have to do.
These are 5 gift ideas that are guaranteed to please. Raise your virtual hand if you're a mom and you wouldn't want one of these five. Anyone? I didn't think so.
What's that, you say? You want to know what "material" objects I want too? Well, if you insist...
I think I'd have to say...
A charm for my newest daughter from Julian & Co to add to the necklace I already own.
A piece of canvas art from PhotoFiddle.
YOUR TURN: What do YOU want for Mother's Day? What material and immaterial gifts would top your "wish list"?
