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! 

What are you getting your MOMMY for Mother’s Day?

 

Walk Time!

Did you know that Mother’s Day is May 8th?  I am watching the calendar closely because I don’t want to forget this very special day, as I love my Mommy so much!  My Mommy takes good care of me and keeps me company during the day.  She always lovingly wipes my feet when I come in when it’s wet outside, she brushes me every day to keep me looking fabulous, she plays ball with me everytime I want to play (even if she’s busy), she takes me for rides in the car (you know how much I love going bye bye), she vacuums up all of my hair, and feeds me exactly on-time (or I’ll let her know it’s time), & keeps the house real clean, and she unfortunately has to clean up after me out on the lawn.  I don’t know what I would do without my Mommy, as I love spending time with her.  My Mommy loves “hearts” so much, so I am going to try to get her something that she’ll love because I want her to know how special she is to me & Daddy.  We wouldn’t know what to do without her…

Kisses for Mommy,
Love Nikita

P.S. – Speaking of May 8th, don’t forget that is the deadline to donate to the APL for Doggie Dollars & Kitty Kash

Photograph Glass Blocks

Hey everyone, it’s me, Nikita!  Boy oh boy do I have some great news…. My Mommy has been busy working on bringing you something so awesome and unique, that I had to share it with you!  She has taken one of my photographs and actually made it into a glass block with lights!  She has turned an ordinary photograph into a “Work of Art“.    Daddy & Mommy are selling these now on their website at www.themesnthings.com and you can read all about these new Photograph Lighted Glass Blocks and how you can get one too!  The great thing about these glass blocks is that it is NOT just for a Pet Lover, you can send Mommy your favorite photo and she’ll turn it into a lighted glass block.  You can use these glass blocks as a night light, a small light on the kitchen counter, bookshelf, mantel, or desk and your favorite photo will shine!  Great unique gift idea for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Anniversary, Graduation – the list is endless!
