Just in time for Mother’s Day, we have created more free printables for you!  The first item is a Mother’s Day Card that says “Hey Mom You’re Awesome” on the front and the inside is blank so you can tell your Mom how special she is.  The card sheet has two Hey Mom cards on it, just in case you mess up the first one.  Print it out on cardstock paper, then fold in half to find the center, then cut it out, then fold the card in half.  The second is a free printable sheet of Mother’s Day gift tags, just perfect to adorn all of the gifts you are getting her.

Do You Know a MOM-Arazzi?

We all know what the paparazzi are, but do you know a MOM-Arazzi?  A MOM-Arazzi is a Mom who follows you around all day and photographs everything that you do.  She thinks that everything you do is cute, adorable, and needs to be photographed and preserved as a memory in time.

I’ve got a Mom like that.  She always has her camera ready, within reach, to catch all the things that I do.  You gotta love her, I do.  On top of being a Mom-Arazzi, she is also the bestest Mom I have ever had as she takes good care of me, brushes me a couple of times a week, brushes my pearly white teeth once a week, wipes my paws dry when I come in from outside on a rainy day, picks up after me outside, and she always puts away all of my toys at the end of every day.  WOW, what a MOM!  (Mom upside down is WOW, ya know!) 

With Mother’s Day coming up in less than a month, we thought it would be a great idea to share stories about our Mom’s.  How has your Mom inspired you?  What valuable lessons did she teach you when you were growing up?

Here is one valuable life lesson that my Mom said to me when I was younger, that I have never forgot…  When I was younger, I had asked my Mom “How do I know what is the right thing to do?”   She thought on this one for a second, then said to me “When you have a decision to make and don’t know which one is the right one – think of it this way….  if Dad and I were standing on either side of you – what decision would you make?”   That phrase from my Mom has stuck with me for years.  I could just imagine me somewhere trying to figure out how to make a decision when I was younger and the thought of my Dad and Mom standing next to me… guess which decision I made?  The RIGHT ONE for sure!  (Pass this one on to your kids!) 

Since Mom’s are the best, make sure that their presents for Mother’s Day are unique, and/or handmade as these are filled with love.  And, since we love making free printables, we have made some tags to adorn your Mom’s gifts for Mother’s Day.  Click here for the tags! 

Tell us how your Mom has inspired you and some of the great lessons you have learned along the way.

Thanks Mom!
