HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO PET OWNERS!

MY POMERANIAN PACK

What if your kid is furry and has more than 2 legs? Whether you were blessed with children or not, let’s not forget the moms who take care of our pets at home. It is still a nurturing job. From feeding, to walking, to playtime, to love, it is still a job that a pet mom still needs to be recognized for.

I personally don’t have children of my own due to major fertility issues, so I have the next best thing: dogs. My sweet little pets are treated like my children. I have 3 wonderful loving little Pomeranians named Playboy, Rockstar (Rocky for short), and Paris. I call my Pomeranian pack the Doodles. I love my doodles so much they make my heart jump for joy when I see them. I love how they always put a smile on my face.

These happy little creatures are so spoiled and demand a lot of attention and I am guilty to catering their every little need. I love how they communicate with me! The let me know if they need to go outside, when they are hungry, when they want to be picked up, when they are scared, and when they want to play. Believe it or not, all 3 communicate differently and I love their unique personalities.

We got Rockstar and Playboy first about 8 years ago. Rockstar and Playboy are from the same litter. These 2 brothers are always competing to see who is pack leader on a daily basis. So funny to see them compete against each other yet team up when they need each other. Rockstar is my little side kick. He follows me everywhere on the house. Watching my every move, he is very aware where I am at all times. Playboy could care less. All he cares about is lounging on the spiral staircase watching people walk by and when his next treat is. Playboy prefers his space. He will come to you when he needs something, otherwise, leave him alone.

Paris came a couple years later after we had the boys. My husband saw her and fell in love with her and we had furry family member #3. She is such a sweet pea. Probably the biggest lover out of all 3. She has those puppy eyes that make your heart melt, therefore she gets whatever she wants whenever she wants. It’s like having a 3rd child who is the baby of the family and gets a little more special treatment than the first 2 kids. My husband and I are guilty of spoiling her a little more than the boys. Don’t ask us why. We love them all very much, but there is something about her sweet little nature that we never say no.

So to all the pet mom’s out there who treat their furry family members like kids. Happy Mother’s Day! I know that they appreciate everything that you do for them especially love them!

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!

Let’s Celebrate Mother’s Day

My mini-me

What a special weekend this weekend is! I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mom’s out there. And if you’re a mom, I hope you can relax this weekend and enjoy the love of your own family.  Instead of running around this weekend with crazy Mother’s Day plans, I am hoping to try and relax and celebrate the women who mean the most in my life.

I have a three year old and Mother’s Day now takes on a whole new meaning to me. I feel

Mom, myself, and Grandma

so blessed and so much love being a mother to my little girl.  I can remember my first Mother’s Day with her when she was about three months old.  She got dedicated at church that weekend and it was such a special weekend. I can remember how proud I felt as Icarried her in front of the church that morning. She makes my heart warm and she is such the light of my life.  Yes, some days can be challenging and I can get frustrated at all of the mundane tasks motherhood entails, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.  It is the small things that I appreciate on mother’s day. I am looking forward to “muffins for mom” at my daughter’s school and seeing her face as she hands me a craft project that she has made for me.  It’s these moments that I want to hold close to me forever. I am also fortunate enough to celebrate Mother’s Day with my 85-year-old grandma, mom and step-mom. They all hold such a huge place in my heart and have all sacrificed so much to make me the person I am today.  If they are reading this I want to say, thank you and I love you all so much. When I was growing up, I can remember loving making my mom breakfast in bed. She always pretended like she was so surprised and like it was the best breakfast she had ever tasted.  I have a step-mom, a mom, a grandma, and so many wonderful friends in my life who I have been blessed enough to consider like friend/moms to me.  Women take the heat a lot for beating each other up, but I feel like most women really look out for and take care of each other.  I love appreciating all of the strong women out there who are mothers in their own right. As women, we are oftentimes the glue that keeps the family together.  We dedicate so much of our lives working hard to love, nourish and take care of our family unit. I wouldn’t have it any other way and love all of the sacrifices I make to be there for my family.

A mother isn’t just a woman who has given birth to children. Mother’s can come in many different forms. I looked up the definition of a mother and here is what was listed:

My step-mom and Landry

Whether you are a mom to a golden retriever or a grandma with 10 grandkids, Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you and your loved one’s have a fabulous day. You deserve it!

Much love-
