Being a Mom – The World’s Toughest Job #WorldsToughestJob

Let’s be honest…being a Mom is not an easy job. Sure, there are easy days or even easier phases that your kids go through. But all in all, it’s a job that takes a lot of patience, creativity, hard-work and much more.

Motherhood is also a job that is very rewarding. You get to see all of your child’s “firsts”, you get daily hugs & kisses (until they are too old or too cool for it), you get to play board games that you haven’t thought about since you were a child yourself or pull out the Play-Doh just because it’s fun. The hardest roles of a Mom have to be comforting your child when their feelings are hurt by kids at school or they feel left out by those kids, rushing your 6 year old son to the ER to get stitches when he split his head open on the metal bar of the bunk beds (plus, trying VERY hard not to pass out when the doctor is doing the stitches to your child) and wondering every day if the decisions you are making for your kids are the right ones (or if I need to start saving up for their therapy now!)

This Mother’s Day, don’t forget to celebrate all of the Mom’s in your life. Your own Mom, Mother-In-Law, Grandma’s, anyone who has played that mothering role in your life. While we can’t always be with the one’s we love in person, we can let them know how much we love them & are thinking about them on Mother’s Day. I think a lot of people overlook the power & appreciation of receiving a greeting card. With just a few words, you can tell your Mom how much she means to you and how much you love her. My favorite way to send a greeting card is by creating a card at Cardstore. This was my 2nd time using them and I absolutely love not only how simple it is to create a card but how many beautiful cards you can choose from. Maybe you want a more personalized card? Cardstore is great for that because there are so many places on the card to add your own special touch. Some of the cards allow you to place a picture on the front or on the inside. You can even scan in & upload your child’s artwork to add to the inside of the card. I am pretty sure that would make any Grandma’s day special!

I have to say though that my favorite thing about Cardstore is after I was done personalizing the cards (I ordered one for my Grandma, my Mom & my Mother-In-Law), I paid the price of a stamp & Cardstore printed the card, stamped it and mailed it to my family on the day I requested it. My Grandma received hers yesterday & called me this morning. Now, my Grandma is VERY emotional and I could tell she had been crying. She told me, “You really know how to pull on your old Grandma’s heartstrings!” I took that as a huge win that she loved the card I made for her. She said that the only thing better than that card would us being there to spend the day with her (she’s 5 1/2 hours away from us).
