Today is Mother’s Day! This whole week we have focused on all things motherhood with our little ones, but we thought it would be nice to talk about our amazing mothers!
If there’s one person that I am most thankful for it’s my mom. She is always there for me, whether I call because I’m sick, or something more serious. There are no questions asked. I joke with her that she makes the “grandchildren circuit” visiting us, my sister in NYC and then my sister in Virginia, but she is a lifesaver. Baby is sick and need a last minute babysitter? Call mom. Daycare is closed for a week and I can’t take the week off of work? Call mom. Need a pedicure and just need to get out of the house? Call mom. Even though my parents moved to Buffalo last year, my relationship with my mom has only gotten stronger. I talk to her at least twice a day (on a busy day) and wouldn’t have it any other way! I can’t imagine not having her around just to talk to, get advice from, and just spend time with. Particularly with Mike being gone, my mom has been my rock, my other hand, my sounding board, my shoulder to cry on, my everything. The only thing that I think is better than having my mom as my mom, is Madeline getting to have her as her Grandma. Maybe it’s because she raised three girls, but my mom gets Madeline laughing, she soothes her, and she is the best playmate (just ask my niece and nephew who keep her locked in their rooms with them for hours!). I tend to think it’s because she’s just such a genuinely nice and caring person. My mom is the best role model, and I really hope that I’m half the mom to Madeline that she is to my sisters and I! Thank you Mom, for always being there for me! I know I call in quite a few favors, but you never say no and I really appreciate that. I love you, Happy Mother’s Day!
My best friend in this whole world would be my mom. She is truly one of a kind. She is not just my mom though – she is everyone’s mom! I always say she is basically everyone’s second mother. She will take the shirt off her back for anyone in need especially her 3 kids. I can count on her for anything at anytime, no matter the circumstance. I can’t think of anyone I talk to more than my mom. My morning, afternoon nor evening feels right unless I talk to her on the phone. I even call her throughout the day when she’s at my house watching Logan. Did I mention she travels 3 hours one way to watch Logan 4 days a week?! While she is there she also helps us out with cleaning and cooking. She is truly a rock star! I know the day she became a grandma was one of the best days of her life. Seeing her love Logan melts my heart! She’s now not only the best mom but the best grandma ever!!! Now that I am a mom I can understand the unconditional love you have for a child so I know how much she really loves all of her kids and Logan. Mom, you’re my best friend and I would be lost without you. You’re always there for me and can’t thank you enough for all you do – which is like a million things each week! Logan, Matt and I love you past the moon and the stars! Happy Mother’s Day!
To all the moms out there – Happy Mother’s Day from us at Forever Young Moms! We hope you take the time you deserve today to doing something nice for yourself. Enjoy!
