Happy Mother’s Day

One of the most important days of my life was when I first earned the title of mom. I always knew I’d want to be a mother and looked forward to having a family someday. When the honor was bestowed on me I learned quickly how it wasn’t the image I had in my head of running through a field of flowers, holding a little hand, snuggling in a big chair reading books or simply having a delightful talk with my little one. The reality was that it was hard. It was messy and smelly and took so much energy yet it was equally exciting and satisfying. Here is a longer story about becoming a mom here.

What I hope you know during this month that we honor mothers is that we stand with you at Giraffe Laugh. Being a mother never ends even when our children no longer need us or grow into adulthood. Through the Parent Café’s which we launched in April during Child Abuse Awareness Month, we hope parents can connect and gain strength through those early years when parenting is most difficult.

Have a lovely May and may all of your dreams come true for you and yours as you celebrate the title of Mom. Happy Mother’s Day!
