My dear friends, Kerry and Holly, started You Are A Great Mom with a simple mission: to inspire moms to release guilt and embrace great. After one of them had a frustrating day followed by a sleepless night with a sick toddler, their attention turned to how they could help themselves and other mothers feel less guilt and more confidence. The idea of creating a reminder with the simple affirmation–You are a Great Mom–gave them chills.
I knew my friends were starting this company and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. I have my “You are a Great Mom” affirmation sticker on my kitchen window–because I need it there! When I am home, I spend 90 percent of my time in the kitchen. I often end my day there too. Usually exhausted, I clean up and go over every single thing I did wrong that day. No lie, I have glanced up at my sticker with tears in my eyes to bring me back, to re-energize me and to remind me that yes, I am a great mom. I also know other great moms… my mother, my comadres, my BFFs, my Chicago girls, my primas…and I’m going to make sure they all know it.

I want to wish every mom reading this, a VERY happy Mother’s Day! We start our celebration tomorrow, Saturday, because in Mexico, El Dia de las Madres is always on May 10th! So we get the whole weekend…woot!
May 10th is also Jordi’s birthday and I couldn’t ask for a better gift. To celebrate these great occasions, You are a Great Mom and I are picking TEN (!) MFBS readers at random to receive this Reminder Kit. The best part about this giveaway, is that we know you will spread the love and share with other great mothers.
Good luck and happy Mother’s Day!
