Are you having as much trouble as I am accepting that Mother’s Day is this weekend? It’s already May 2012. I’m reminded of how quickly time is flying every day when my kids walk through the door and announce the number of days until summer. My heart starts to race and I begin to panic as I quickly realize that I have failed in the planning department. Usually by this time in past years our summer plans have been meticulously laid out. Not this year. I still have some work to do. I’m telling you all of this with the hope that some of you will be inclined to give me that little, extra needed push to help me get my act together. If not, it will be a long summer without much writing over here.
Happy Mother’s Day to All Mothers
Every Mother’s Day I celebrate my three boys, since without them I couldn’t wear my treasured “mother” hat. On this Mother’s Day it is my hope that my children grow up in a world where some pretty significant change takes place. Read about the rest of my wishes for all children in my post: A Mother’s Day Gift to My Boys, on the Healthy Child Healthy World blog of the week.
Eco Moms Who Made a Difference
I’m honored to have been included in Earth911’s list of 6 Eco Moms Who Made a Difference. Some of my eco-heroes are included in the piece-Corey and Lynn from Celebrate Green, Sommer from Green and Clean Mom, and Karen from EcoKaren and EcoEtsy. I was also excited to see Candace the owner of GROOVY GLOBE (how could I not love this business?) who sells some pretty awesome eco apparel, which I will be reviewing very soon! I’m looking forward to getting to know the three sisters who created Bebo Naturals organic baby food line. Check out our family photo-it was pretty windy that day so my hair is looking a bit out of control.
Moms Share Their Wishes
Thanks to Jenn over at Mother Nature Network for putting together a great roundup of what mom’s really want for Mother’s Day (mine’s included!). What do you really want this Mother’s Day?
