I hope all you mamas and stepmamas out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I had a great day thanks to my wonderful family and my amazing hubby :) Mother’s Day is always a little bittersweet for me. One, because my mom lives 6 hours away and it is rare that we get to spend this day together, and two, because Caleb and Kyleigh are always with their mom on this day (rightfully so). Being a stepmom is hard. Really hard. And days like this are just a reminder of that. I know there are so many of you out there that can relate to this. Luckily, Charley is so great about making sure that we still get to celebrate with Caleb and Kyleigh, usually a couple of days early. The kids always have handmade cards for me (my favorite kind), and some amazingingly thoughtful gift. Last year, this picture frame with the kiddos spelling out Mom.
Love love love. And this year, “A collection of quotes for Mother’s Day.”
Each kiddo picked their own quote for me – Luca had some help from Charley ;) Caleb and Kyleigh even insisted on picking out their own fonts, lol!
Charley told me that they read through hundreds of quotes until they found the one they wanted to use. It makes my heart so happy to know that they put so much time and effort into a gift for me. Knowing this makes being a stepmom not so hard, and helps me to really appreciate all we have gone through to get here.
Happy Mother’s Day :)
