We hope that all our Milk Mamas had a wonderful and happy MOTHER’S DAY and enjoyed this special day with their families.
Thanks to all of you who entered Milk Nursingwear’s Mother’s Day Drawing. Each of your responses were touching, and sometimes funny, tributes to motherhood. Thank you for sharing your joyous tidbits of life in both words and pictures with us.
Below we have shared a selection of entries and photos from the contest. We hope you enjoy them and that they inspire you as much as they have inspired us.
” I love being a mother because I love seeing the joy in my son’s face. I have heard people describe what it is like to be a mother, but I did not truly understand it until now. I’ve never felt more joy while feeling totally exhausted and time has never gone so quickly and slowly simultaneously. Motherhood has been a Bermuda Triangle of time, for me.” ~ Kimberley
” I love being a mother because I get to spend my time with the most fun, warm, creative people in the world.” ~ Rebecca
” I love being a mother because my children have taught me more about love, grace, humanity, and about the very heart of God in their few short years on earth then I could have ever learned on my own. Being their mother has been the most incredible experience of my life, and I am so thankful for them every day.” ~ Jenna
” I love being a mother because Harvey has shown me a whole new kind of love I can’t imagine having missed out on.” ~ Lauren
” I love being a mother because I knew I’ve always wanted to make my kids feel special and loved the same way my mother made me feel.” ~ Suni
” I love being a mother because you learn that you never really knew love until you meet them for the first time. And then they hold your heart forever.” ~ Karey
” I love being a mother because its teaching me to be in the moment with a new person experiencing life’s beauty for the first time.” ~ Erin
” I love being a mother because it is the hardest but most rewarding responsibility there is. There is nothing like the love of a child. Being a mother has taught me so much about myself and made me realize what is most important in life.” ~ Kira
” I love being a mother because no matter how bad of a day I’m having (or they’re having!) all I have to do is look at my boys and remember just how lucky I am ♡” ~ Jill
” I love being a mother because despite it daily being the most challenging thing I have ever done in so many ways, I would never have dreamed the sheer joy I feel when one of my daughters accomplishes something new, conquers an obstacle or simply shows me the world through her eyes. I cannot wait to add to that when our little boy joins us this summer :)” ~ Kelley
” I love being a mother because there is absolutely no better feeling or greater love than the love one feels for their own child. It is the best experience I could have ever dreamed or hoped for. I have the two most amazing boys in the world – Camden who is 4, and Colten who is 10 days old (and nursing I might add – wink wink).” ~ Caroline
