For YOU, Giveaways

You ARE a Great Mom GIVEAWAY!

May 9, 2014


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.

Let’s support each other and the greatness of motherhood by visiting Kerry and Holly’s You Are a Great Mom site. Please like their Facebook page and follow them on Twitter. AND enter this wonderful Reminder Kit giveaway…

7 Reusable Stickers for you to place wherever you need them.
7 Notecards to share with moms you love and admire.
7 Magnets for those “mom-strangers” you know could use a boost of confidence.

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!

    I have two dear friends who are the best moms. They both work full-time yet are totally present for their kids and make parenting look effortless. When I get really stressed, I think of them and am reminded to take a step back, breathe, and then respond.

    I admire my grandmother who raised 11 kids on her own after my granfather passed. And I also admire my own mother because she gave up her career to take care of her children ❤♥❤

    My mom!! Just other day I sat in a women’s career development session and I said I wanted to be like mom. After they asked why, I said because she’s the only women I know that to this day, still fixes my dad lunch for work. Dinner is ready when he gets home from work. The lady works full time, and somehow managed to raise 3 kids. I know I can never be like her, but I’ll be dammned if I don’t try! I have one daughter, and I can barely manage.

    I admire my own mom the most in my life. My MIL also holds a dear spot in my heart, though she’s no longer with us.
