Every day we get up and we rush around, we spend our good days and our bad days being there for our kids. There are no slow days and there are no sick days, being a mom is a job that is never ending and it’s one that I love so very much. It’s a big deal when you hear from your own kids just how special they think you are.
It’s even better when they tell you just how special the ordinary things you do each and every day mean to them. Like in this video, we were proud to partner with Children’s Motrin® and celebrity super-mom Kelly Ripa.
Remember last month when Brooklin and I went to New York City? We were actually meeting with other super moms and their kids to shoot this video and have a little fun with Kelly.
We spent the day playing games, Brooklin got to direct a special photo shoot for me and I really had no idea what was happening. At the end she got to surprise me with the storybook cover that she created for us. Of course there was time for cartwheels in the hall and a nap and it was just another ordinary day for us. Having fun together and creating memories together, and this was one thing we will both never forget! It is an honor to know that Brooklin thinks of me as “My Unstoppable Mom” and she shared a special moment that means a lot to both of us with Kelly Ripa. Children’s Motrin® really is honoring moms by celebrating the little moments because they know how much they mean to our kids. It was also so much fun to see what the other kids shared too about their moms, Amanda, Heather, Penelope, Becky, and Joey.
As a mom of three girls I spend our mornings doing hair. No matter how my girls would like it done I try to make it happen and it turns out that moment in our day means so much more than I ever imagined!
Being a mom means everything to me. Growing up as a foster child I could only dream of what life was like with a mother but it was only after having my first child did I finally know what that love was like. Being a mother is my greatest joy, and now being the mom to three girls I just want to be the best mom that I can be. Wake up enthusiastically and help them grow into kind and intelligent little people.
Being a mom is hard though and tiring and some days are less enthusiastic than others but I have learned to love a lot and laugh a lot along the way. During the good days and the bad, and make time for those little moments. Because the little things really do mean big things to our kids!
