I can't speak for all of them, but most of the moms I know would agree that being a mom is the best thing that has ever happened to them.
Sure it's also the most exhausting, challenging, grueling and expensive thing ever- but I don't know one mom that would trade it for anything. We love our babies and want to shout it to the world how proud we are, how lucky, how tough, strong and even how tired we are by it.
Mother's Day is just around the corner and we have the mom tees that you'll not only want for yourself, but that are also perfect for gifting to all of the moms in your life.
Here are our 5 favorites:
1. Proud Mama
It's been proven that most human beings spend a lot of their lives trying to make their parents proud. Let's get that out of the way and let our children know we already are so proud of them.
2. Tough as a Mother
Sure we can be kind and sweet and pleasant, but mess with our children? You better watch out. We are tough mother-effers when it comes to our kids.
3. Mama Tried
Parenting and motherhood is a game of constantly trying, and failing, trying something new, and maybe a win here and there (but don't say that out loud.) One thing I can guarantee as a mom of my three boys? I will never stop trying to raise them to be the best little humans they can be.
4. Strong Woman
What better example of strength can I provide than being a strong woman myself? Someone who is strong is confident and determined, and is not easily influenced or worried by other people. That is definitely something I am trying to model for my kids.
5. Lucky Mama
I know write about how challenging motherhood can be. I complain sometimes about how overwhelmed I am. I cry to my own mom when I’m feeling unsure of my own abilities as a mom. I always want to be honest and real about it.
And, truth be told, motherhood is hard. Insanely, monumentally, enormously hard.
But one thing I always want my kids to know— is that I’m so lucky to be their mom. No matter how hard it gets—I am always going to feel (beyond) lucky to be their mama.
My role in this life as a mom is an honor and a privilege. It is why I wake up in the morning. It is why I cheer so loud on the sidelines (too loud sometimes.) It's why my heart is overflowing with love. It is why I am who I am.
I am so proud, tough, tired, strong and lucky.
Mother's Day is May 8th this year. Happy early Mother's Day to ALL the moms out there!
