Gift Like a Mother! : A Curated Selection of Mother's Day Gifts Chosen By an Actual Mom

It’s that time of the year again, Mothers Day. As a new(ish) Mom I feel like I can finally speak for my mom people. Basically, we want affection and validation we are people. Oh and a more equitable world for mothers where our emotional and physical labor is respected. In lieu of those things, if you know a mom or have one to buy for. Here are some gifts I would suggest getting for the mom in your life. These are curated by me from my affiliates but I would like any of these things. Have fun looking through them.

This Will Be Our Year: New Year's Eve with Small Children

Now, I am a mother of a small child and the holiday is not about getting dressed up in a little black dress and seeing the most outlandish headpiece I can tastefully wear. Last year my son had an ear infection and we were traveling so my husband and I spent the night watching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. However, I think children should be excited about the New Year and learn about the transition. Mainly because not all years are great and I want my child to know you can move on with a new mindset and grace.
