    Whoo-hoo! Contest!

    Every Mother’s Day (before having a baby myself) I would call my mom and give her the obligatory “Happy Mother’s Day” greeting with a gift that wasn’t always the most thoughtful. Now, I take the time to talk to her, update her with every little nuance of our lives, satisfy her need to know *everything* because she is my mother. That’s my gift to her. Every day is Mother’s Day so I curb any annoyance I might have when I speak with my mom, and I hope that my children will repay me in the same way.

    did you say contest?????? Count me in!!!

    First, let me say that I love you guys. I am already cleaning with vinegar and baking soda and I can’t wait to try lemons (epi 3)! I look forward to hear what’s going on with you both ~ every day life is crazy with kids :)

    So…best Mother’s Day memory. I gotta say no one year stands out. I get spoiled for the day, and get flowers and a card, but for me, it’s not much more than that. That is OK though, I don’t mind. I LOVE being a mom (most of the time) and so every day is MY day.

    Keep up the great work!

    I love Mother’s Day because we don’t do gifts, just homemade cards and I get to plan the entire day. We usually have a leisurely breakfast and then head to a local garden to roam around and just be together, pack a picnic, etc. I am the luckiest mom – truly – I am beyond blessed.
    Nice blog and keep it up!

    I’m a mom of two girls, one of which puked all night. I’m too darn tired to remember what shoe goes on what foot let alone a MD memory. And we ALL know too well the “being awake on borrowed time!” :D

  5. Mollie says:

    I luff Mothers Day. I get to snuggle my babies all day because they HAVE to be nice to me ;)

  6. Kendra says:

    I really enjoy sitting in church with my family on Mother’s Day! Last year they made a video of a bunch of the kids saying special messages to their moms, grandmas, etc. I must say it was super sweet to see my little ones up on that screen…even though one of them didn’t even say anything LOL

  7. Donetta says:

    When I was pregnant, my husband got me a mother’s day gift and card. The perfume was great, but the best part was the envelope with the card inside. The envelope said “Mommy.” I will never forget picking up that envelope. That memory is very special to me. Last year though was just perfect. I got to be in complete control of our day. Okay, that’s not too different than most days. But I chose to have lunch out and feasted on my fave foods. Then we went to the duck pond and took a million pictures. I couldn’t have had a better day.

    Love the blog and the whole idea of what you guys are doing. Keep it up :)

    My husband takes the kids to a paint your own pottery place. They paint me a serving dish! It’s so cute to watch it go from scribbles, to intentional drawings. I love it and can’t wait to see my new one each year! This year, Sage (my 4 year old) realized Mothers Day was coming and said “OH! We need to go to the pottery place!” I told her she needed to ask daddy about it! :)

    Enter me in the contest. I love winning fun things!

    Stacy :)

    The last couple of mother’s days the girls sing at the church service in their little choir! It’s so sweet and I get all teary and take pictures of course!!

  10. Barbara says:

    I think last year was the best for me…my cousins wife had the girls make me cards…it was great. I got them in the mail a day or two before Mothers day. Now my girls have been talking about Mothers day for the past couple of weeks.

  11. Misty says:

    I love that dh has taken AM shopping every year and they pick out something very sweet and thoughtful. He takes her out for a couple hours which gives me some “me” time. That alone is a great gift. Then he usually pampers me for the day by making all the meals and cleaning up the kitchen. I get to spend the day hanging out w/ my mom and just generally being lazy/loungy. This year probably won’t follow suit, but that’s okay. There is always next year. Sorry I’m not a big commenter, but I’ve listened to a few, except my computer wouldn’t load the last one for whatever reason. Haven’t had time to figure it out yet.

  12. Jenn says:

    I love getting my homemade cards now-the girls get SO exited to make them!
    And one memory from before I was a mom-I was baptized on Mother’s Day one year so I also have that anniversary each year that comes to mind and reminds me to be SO grateful!

  13. Lisa says:

    We don’t usually do much for Mother’s Day. The one I remember the most is 2004 when I was pregnant with Eric (my first). My husband bought be a swing for our yard, it was one of the very few times he has surprised me with a gift! A few weeks later I ended up on bed rest and then “modified” bed rest for the rest of my pregnancy (until August). So that swing ended up being a nice place for me to “rest” outside all summer :)

  14. Haley says:

    2005 was good because it was my first Mother’s Day holding. my. own. baby! Most Mother’s Days we are at the beach….it’s great but we won’t be doing that this year.

    I’m thinking this will be my most memorable Mother’s Day because I’m having both of my babies dedicated at church. My parents will be there (daddy at least…mom’s terribly anti social…).

  15. Amy F. says:

    My most memorable Mothers Day, not the best one but one that really sticks out. I was about 6 months pg with our first daughter and while walking into church, the greeters were giving carnations to all the moms. And Mrs. Addams made a point to hand one to me and said “Happy 1st Mothers Day”. I of course knew I was going to have a baby in just a few months – but I think it really hit me when she said it that I was going to be a mom. And the pg hormones took over and I welled up with tears.

    Sappy Moms Day!


  16. Christy says:

    Well, this is going to be my first official mother’s day, so I am excited. Not because anything big will happen, but I just like that it will be the first.

    I of course, always made my mom the “mother’s day coupon book” with a list of chores that I was already supposed to do, but I would write things like “without complaining.” The last one I made was around 6th grade with index cards (probably supposed to be writing vocabulary words on them for school) and tied with a blue ribbon, and my mom still has it in a box, never redeemed. My mom is not particularly sentimental, so I just think that is sweet.

  17. Amy says:

    I’m SO excited for this Mother’s Day – it will be my first as a Mommy!! My daughter is 8 months old, and I’m just so thrilled to have her (although I’m sure her Daddy will help her do something nice for me). Just hanging out w/ her is enough! :)

  18. Amber says:

    Mother’s Day 2005. I went to my mom’s house and had expected the usual Mother’s Day Breakfast that we normally try to do. Instead I was pleasantly surprised to find a cake and presents. My mom had decided to throw a joint birthday party/Mother’s Day Party for me, her and my sister. Our birthday’s are all at the end of April and beginning of May and it was such a sweet day. The weather was beautiful and my mom and kids were surrounding me. Such a great day!

  19. Denise says:

    Unfortunately, my first mother’s day comes to mind as being the most memorable for the wrong reasons.

    My MIL came to visit us that weekend and there was a mother’s day breakfast at church the day before. Before I start, let me say, I do love MIL but she can be a little bit of an attention-getter at times. Well, here I was, a first-time mother and my MIL kept bugging my husband to get in line and get breakfast for her first, and kept talking about how it was her day to be pampered, and blah, blah, blah. You get the idea.

    The next year there wasn’t a Mother’s day breakfast at church and she was so disappointed, because all through the year, as it got closer to Mother’s day, she would keep bringing it up to me and her friends how her son was going to wait on her again.

    I was secretly glad it was cancelled that year, giggle!

  20. Daniela says:

    I don’t normally entertain Mother’s Day too much, partly because it’s a Hallmark Holiday and partly because I just feel generally uncomfortable being “thanked” for being a mom, but two years ago my daughter made a little card with her hand in-print on it and a fridge magnet, and that made me so happy I almost cried a little.

  21. Jodi says:

    My most memorable Mother’s Day was also my most horrible Mother’s Day!!! For a change the hubby was actually going to be home for Mother’s Day to spend it with our daughter and I. We got up had a nice breakfast and proceeded to lounge around the house. Around 4 that afternoon I started throwing up, within three hours hubby was as well, we sent our daughter to bed early and spent the rest our night in the bathrooms, thanks goodness we have more then one!!!

  22. Cathy says:

    The Mother’s Day that comes to mind is last year. I was a little worried that my second son wasn’t walking yet – he was 12-1/2 months old. After a sweet day of cards and gifts from my oldest son and husband, around sunset we all loaded up and went to the golfing range so hubby and son could practice their swings. It was a beautiful night and so peaceful sitting on the grass listening to my boys having fun. Lost in the moment, I almost didn’t notice that my little one stood up and took his first steps towards me with his little arms reaching out to me. I cried…it was such a sweet day.

  23. Marcy says:

    The first year I moved away after college ( I attended close to home) I had to work the brunch shift on mothers day – and I didnt get to see my mom. I was waiting tables, and of course, being mothers day it was super busy. I was slammed, running, crazy! I went up by the front entry at one point, looked up and there stood my mom ad dad. They had driven an hour and a half to surprise me, on Mothers day! I immediately got teary eyed, and broke down! It was a great day!

  24. Peggy says:

    It was last year, and I spent it with my own mother even though I have 3 kids of my own. She had cancer and we had a wonderful day together just reminiscing, eating, and laughing. She died on October 6th, but it will always be the very best Mother’s Day .
