This Sunday I will be celebrating my first “official” Mother’s Day. I have always celebrated as a fur mom, but this year it’s a little different with an actual human baby. When I think back on my pregnancy and first few months as a mom, I remember being so overwhelmed and having so, so many questions. I am really proud of “making it” this far, so a delicious treat is in order, right?
However, when I think back on this past year, I also think of another mom who has continually been there for me and answered my DAILY pregnancy and parenting questions. This friend not only has given me advice on countless occasions, but also basically supplied my maternity wardrobe and Emma Kate’s newborn wardrobe. She made me feel normal when I had feelings of sadness, and encouraged me telling me I was a good mom when I didn’t feel like one.
I knew I wanted to share my treats with her, because she definitely deserves a decadent Mother’s Day treat!
While we were in Disney World this past week, Jen and I indulged in some delicious Shari’s Berries together for Mother’s Day. It was a great way to say “thank you” for all the help and for her friendship. We had so many amazing treats to choose from, but the strawberries and the cake truffles were our favorites!
In honor of Mother’s Day, and my own amazing mother and my friends that are mothers, I tried thinking of some reasons why moms rock, and traits of a good mom. Here is what I came up with:
-Always there for you
-Teaches you the hard but good lessons
So here is a “Happy Early Mother’s Day” to all the amazing moms out there like mine, and like my friend Jen. I hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating YOU!
QOTD: What is something you would add to my list? Do you like chocolate covered strawberries?
Disclosure: I was provided with these special treats by Shari’s Berries to share for Mother’s Day, however all opinions are my own.
