We’re one week away from Mother’s Day , for some of you , this year will be your first year celebrating. Whether it’s your first year or your fifth, Mother’s Day is definitely a day for moms around the world to feel appreciated! Here’s the part where most people would say “Mothers should be appreciated every day of the year, not just one” and I agree 150% with this! As a mama to two awesome kids, I know all about how often mom’s hard work goes unnoticed. You give them all the love in the world, care for them 24/7 and at the end of the day, if your son doesn’t get his new Lego City set, you’re sooo mean! #LifeOfAMom #MaybeThatsJustMe Reminiscing on your first few years as a mom really makes you realize how much has changed and how fast your kids grow up right in front your eyes. Your first Mother’s Day should be the most memorable one, if you don’t know what to do, here are a few ideas to make some memories to last a lifetime:
- Have a Mother/Daughter (Or Son) Photoshoot Pictures last 1000 words and if cared for properly, they can last for generations. A photoshoot of just you and your first born child is the perfect way to capture those precious moments of new motherhood. The time goes so quickly and you're always the one taking the pictures aren't you? Use Mother's Day as a reason to be the one in the picture for once!
- The Gift that Keeps on Growing To celebrate your first Mother’s Day, why not plant something that will grow with your little one? A rose bush or a fruit tree is always a good idea and it will always be there as a way to remind you of your first year as a mom (unless you move a few years down the road). There is definitely a lot of sentimental value attached to this one !
- Make a “Lasting Impression” This one may get a bit messy but again, makes a memory with huge sentimental value . Spread out a roll of butcher paper , or if you want to step it up a notch , get a canvas and some non-toxic paints and leave behind hand prints or foot prints of you and baby , do the same thing next year to see how much he or she has grown !
