Happy (early) Mothers Day from Bump Boxes® #UnderappreciatedSuperwomen

You really don’t entirely understand how much your mom has done for you over the years until you become a mom yourself. To all of the mothers out there….THANK YOU!

You constantly sacrifice and work hard to ensure you have the best for your babies and we are forever grateful. You wear many hats, keep lots of dishes spinning and juggle lots of balls (haha wow get your head out of the gutter! You know what I mean! 😉 ).You literally are the CEO of your families, whether it’s registering your kids for sports, school or a class play, running the kids to practices or dr.’s appointments, constantly cleaning up spitup or throwup (usually off your clothes), wiping butts, fixing booboo’s, cooking, cleaning, laundry, helping with homework, being a shoulder to cry on, reading bedtime stories, a 9-5 job on top of it all in some cases and that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of everything you do….you all are truly superwomen!!! My mom is absolutely amazing and I have no idea how she did it. I hope that I will be just as good of a mommy as she is (love you mom!)….she was definitely underappreciated until I had my own little one!

I’m still a ‘somewhat’ new mommy, and I’m doing my best to figure this whole mommy thing out (with a type a personality….brutal ha). I learn lessons everyday, yesterday was a good example: jogging with a jogging stroller is fantastic running downhill….uphill not so much haha! The most important thing I’ve learned is to just do your best. Everything is not going to be perfect…..as long as you give your little ones lots of love everything will be just fine and fall into place. Just keep reminding yourself if you get stressed out that you can do this…..if the laundry doesn’t get folded for 3 weeks everyone will survive (true story, I have 5 hampers of clean clothes I need to get to, from 3 weeks ago ha!)!! If that doesn’t work I suggest a glass of wine (or a couple glasses of margaritas) when the kiddos go to bed…definitely does the trick!

To all the superwomen out there….those kids will appreciate you one of these days 🙂

Love, Christine

P.S. If you know a first time mommy, she probably has no idea what fantastic ride she’s in for….and she most definitely deserves an amazing first mother’s day gift! Check out our Be Mom, Be Clean and Be Ready boxes with lots of goodies that she will definitely love!
