We had a fun baby shower last month. It was a jungle theme and of course we played Baby Shower Bingo. We also played a fun game where everyone wore a baby pin and if someone says ‘baby’ you can take their pin and the goal is to get the most pins by the end of the shower.
I made these awesome Rattle cupcakes. They were a big hit but quite a bit of work. So worth it though!

With the birth of a baby you feel an overwhelming sense of love and your days are now filled with diapers, sleepless nights, and plenty of feedings. Being a mom is the best job ever however at times it can be a challenging one. Here is a Mom Bingo game for all of you which includes a list of the multitude of things we (try to) do in a day. Enjoy!
Until next time…
I am by no means a new mom but if you have kids just to just being able to stay in bed a little past the time when the kids wake up is like a dream come true. Hint hint dads!! Breakfast is nice but not necessary. Even if the kids can make toast and hubby can make coffee that is lovely. Plus, a nap in the afternoon if necessary would be heavenly!
Every mom loves getting a handmade gift from their kids. I remember when we were kids I made a clay bust of my dad (with a tie on) and he loved it. My daughter makes me cards all the time and every time it melts my heart. For your own mom I have always wanted to get a circle pendant necklace with all the birthstones of her kids. Every mom and grandma loves pictures so a scrapbook would be nice too.
Being a mom is hard work. It starts from the moment you wake up (or are woken up) to the moment they’re sleeping and sometimes into the night. It’s constant multitasking. Even though sometimes it is hard it is the best job in the world. Make sure you show some love to your mom this weekend.
I’ll be seeing you in Mom’s Rule and Year of the Moms this weekend. Go Moms!
Until next time….
