Once you are a Mom you never step backwards. You don’t want to take a chance by tripping and missing a step in your child’s life.

From the moment I looked into my baby’s cherub face I only looked forward. I cannot believe that was over seventeen years ago.

I looked forward to her first gurgle.

Then I looked forward to her first word.

I remember the first time she held her bottle and looked forward to her feeding herself.

She was sitting in a high chair for the first time and I looked forward to her crawling.

As she started crawling and I looked forward to her walking.

At 10 months she made her first best friend and I looked forward to her having a lifetime filled of best friends.

At one year old she started to walk all by herself into an exciting future.

The first year marks the beginning of so many firsts that a Mom never forgets.

Our children are a reflection of how we parent.

I have taught my child the importance of working hard for what you believe, to be kind and generous, and to give back and give forward. Most important, I have taught her to never be afraid to dance!

My daughter has made me a proud Mom with every single step she takes moving forward in life. Even as she grows up into an adult she will always be my little girl.

Fun Mother’s Day gift ideas for Mom

Unique Mother’s Day gift inspiration for Mom and her abode – National interior decorating | Examiner.com.

Mother’s day is almost here and we are stuck with the same question: what do we give Mom that she would really want? Does Mom really need, or want, candy or flowers? Does she want to fight the crowds for brunch when she can eat out on another other day that would be far calmer?

Here are some décor ideas that you can use for a Mother’s Day Gift that will delight any Mom.

Surprise Mom for Mother’s Day by helping her organize and clean out the clutter that she is always complaining about.

A basket full of fun gifts for mom

  • Buy a colorful bucket and fill it up with organic cleaning supplies and dust cloths.
  • Bring in pretty baskets or boxes that can be used to organize keepsakes.

    a pretty tray for Mom to keep her favorite magazines

  • Whether it is just you or the entire clan, tell Mom that you are her willing slave(s) for the day.
  • Give her a comfy throne to sit on and make a list with her of what needs to be accomplished. You might want to write things in order of Importance.

Now, give mom a nice scone and cup of tea, or a mimosa and fresh fruit if she prefers, and get started.

Clean out all of that stuff that she has been begging to get rid of for years and put it at the curb. If Mom wants to sell anything, help her find a consignment shop or open an account on e-bay. Steam the carpets and drapes.

Mom has been dreaming of redecorating so surprise her with a special present.

  • Bring a tape measure over and measure the room and furniture yourself. Pay a professional to design and draw a number of proposed furniture plans to give to Mom.
  • If you have an artistic flair, draw a few furniture floor plans yourself for Mom. Use the furniture she has, and wants to keep, and then mix in a surprise with a new piece that you know she desires (replace a chair, or add a lamp or area rug). Help her choose new window treatments.
  • You can surprise Mom with a gift card to a store like Homegoods. Take her shopping. Mom might want to freshen up the bedroom with new linens, or buy a new chair to replace an old ratty one.

    Buy mom some new accessories for Mother's Day

Help her by moving the furniture into its new places, and hanging window treatments and art.

Follow up on Mom’s birthday and the Holidays with more presents to help her to put the finishing touches on her new décor.

Give mom some pretty scents and candles

Add a pleasant, relaxing fragrance and some flowers. Turn on Mom’s favorite music and take her for a twirl. Never be afraid to dance!
