It's Mother's Day: the day we celebrate women who successfully keep their children guessing who the favorite is.
We're pretty sure our moms are the only ones who read this blog, soooo we asked Renee (Director of E-Comm) and Molly (Director of Design & Sourcing) to share a few photos and stories from their Motherhood Journeys, also known as How To Tell the Difference Between Chocolate and Poop On Your Shirt 101.
Renee: I tend to be a worry wart. I worry about everything. My husband likes to remind me: "Renee, you've got 18 years to worry about her. At this rate, you are not going to make it." My kid is 10 months old.
Molly: One of my twin boys once devoured raisins on a cross-country flight and then had a subsequent raisin blowout all over his clothes, car seat, and our rental car. Hand-washing everything in a rest stop bathroom was the icing on the cake.
Renee: I've learned to tell myself that when my daughter doesn't want to take a nap, it's not because she's a little devil, but because she's so sad she has to stop hanging out with me. I would cry too.
Molly: When I was pregnant with my daughter, one of my boys was up no less than 10 times a night for 2 months straight. I'm smiling in this picture (because it was totally worth it), but I wasn't smiling a whole lot back then.
Full transparency: Renee and Molly also shared a lot of happy stories. Those are less fun to read, though. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, step-moms, mom-like figures, grandmoms, and moms-to-be out there. We couldn't do it without you.
