Let’s celebrate MommyHood

I recently attended an event hosted by Beech nut foods and huffington post parents.  The subject that the panelists were speaking about was mom shaming.  When I received the email invitation I knew that O had to attend.  This is such an interesting subject.  It always baffles me how someone could judge or shame someone for doing their job when it is geting done overall… correct…. feeding, cleaning, caring for = happy child any way you put it… well then there’s countless hours of entertaining but someone has to be the unpaid clown. Any how http://www.jennyonthespot.com / http://www.rattlesandheels.com/ and http://www.projectmotherhood did a wonderful job with sharing their personal stories along with answering other moms interesting questions. Dr Michelle Borba was on had to add her professional advice. – I took advantage of her knowledge and asked her opinion on The board of education or schools position on making it mandatory for Twins to be separated in school. Her professional response included facts on research based instances where 3rd grade usually marks the change in twins needing to be separated but she did continue with it should be the parents decision overall!!! I loved her response! 

— Beech nut foods http://www.beechnutfoods.com/ have shared some of their new baby products and foods for Bash to try. He has loved the boxed packing so far ( hope its organic) 😉 He truly enjoyed the ready to go oatmeal packages which are so easy for him to squeeze and manage. It made our Mother’s Day outing a lot easier. He snacked during lunch while I enjoyed my food on my new fancy placemats made by V & K! Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day 💐

It wouldn’t be a special Mother’s Day without homemade chocolate chip cookies made by these Dolls! 

3 ways to prepare for a supermom Mothers Day! 

Do you know that feeling you get when you’re excited to see that person that you love so much…. Well I feel it everyday for my girls when I am away working and they’re at school. I’m excited to hear how their day was and share any exciting things we will be doing together… It just never gets old. 

As we all gather together to celebrate Mother’s Day with our Mom’s, guardians or as a mom we embrace the pampering others will bring to us. But this year I’ve experienced a personal inner Mother’s Day celebration starting days before, and I’d like to list these 3 simple things that may bring you to a spiritually happy place leading up to Mother’s Day!

1- plan a day for yourself to talk and mingle with other moms to celebrate the gift that you’ve been given while calling yourself a super HERO! Yes you are!! This years Diva mom event hosted by Lyss https://www.divamoms.com/ lead a panelists of wonderful women including Kelly Rutherford who shared her emotional story and needs help from every mom to bring her babies home! Her petition can be found here – (http://www.twitter.com/twindollicious 

Meeting new mom friends and sharing stories, is all the reward that you can give yourself. My favorite part of this day was meeting fellow twin mama Sasha Of US Weekly and sharing stories. 

2- plan a day to help another mom (as mentioned above) reflect on gifting a mom a day of pampering. We hosted an awesome giveaway on Instagram and loved every second of it… Wish we could have given to everyone 🙂

3- when Mother’s Day arrives take as many photos as you can with your babies and enjoy the rewards of being a mom; because you are Blessed!
