The meaning of Mother’s Day

First Mother's Day (continued)

This will be my first Mother's Day! I have no idea what will happen. My daughter is only 10 months old so obviously I do not expect much from her, but I always think of my mom... Usually, the whole family is together for dinner and I bring her flowers!

This year is a first and it will also be my son’s baptism! I never gave gifts to my mom, but I spend this day writing her a note and pampering her!

This year is my first Mother's Day. Usually we spend that day with the family having a good time. If I get a gift, it will be fun, but to spend time with my 9-month-old daughter is already enough.

A very special day

Mother's Day is my own special party with my 15-month-old son and the baby that I carry in my belly!

It will also my birthday so it's a busy weekend!

This will be my second Mother's Day. We celebrate a little. I call my mother and my sister to wish them happy birthday, my grandmother died in 1998.

Mother's Day is the day I feel lucky to be the mother of a beautiful 4-year-old boy and for all the happiness he brings me! We celebrate with the whole family, my mother, my grandmother and other moms in my extended family.

I don’t know how many Mother’s Day I have left ... I'm not well. For me, Mother's Day is being proud to watching my two sons thinking I’M THEIR MOM! My daughter died at the age of 5 and every year I still hear her telling me Happy Mother's Day xxx Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms of the world!

Usually, my husband spoils me a bit! This will be my third Mother's Day and I love it!

For me too, it is the dream of a lifetime. Every day my son brings me the happiest woman in the world, making me a mother. Every little step, every little new thing, every touch and every hug makes me feel like the happiest mom. Mother's Day is a special day, but what day wouldn’t be when you have the honour of being called “mom”?

Two years ago, I learned on Mother's Day that I was pregnant. My daughter is 16 months old now and I just found out that I am pregnant with my second child. I'm really happy!

I celebrate my mother

This is a day when I never forget to celebrate my mom, and to give her a small gift. My girls are still too young to make me a gift so if their father thinks of something, it will be a surprise. I LOVE YOU MOM!

For me, Mother's Day is a day when I take the time to give back to my mother and my grandmother some of what they gave me. They were very present in my life. It is a day to let them know how good they were as mothers and they still are. If children think of me, so much the better, but it is not for gifts. For me, it is anything but a commercial holiday (especially since most gifts are handcrafted!)

I will not be celebrating this year because I am 31 weeks pregnant. But I want to spoil my own mother. I will pamper her a little and her birthday being on Friday, it will be an intimate dinner for two events, my parents, my husband and me. We will eat fondue and three desserts that I will make for her. I can’t wait!

There are so many parties for all occasions ... My family and I give priority to our birthdays. And the simple fact of being a mother makes me celebrate. However, I use this day to thank my mother for everything she does for me ... even though I often thank, I have a special thought for her that day!
