I know it’s a week early for a Mother’s Day post… but what the heck, everyday should be treated as #MothersDay, right? 💐Because seriously… where would we be today if not for our mothers anyway?! 🤷🏻‍♀️ . So here’s what I’m wishing my kids will gift me with : 🎁 Sleep – because we all deserve an extra hour (or two) in bed… . . 🎁 Hugs and Kisses – because no matter how grown up they are now, we still look at them as babies… . . 🎁 A bottle of champagne – because after all our hard work, we need to relax and celebrate too! Am I right?! 🥂🥂🥂 . And I got these ideas from @winsomebox who can customize whatever you need in one box… Now all I have to do is put a card on it and give it to my kids — so they can give it to me! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Don’t we moms have that #superpower anyway of always being one step ahead of our kids?! 😝 . Remember : MOMS always know what’s BEST!🥇Although on some days, she really has no idea how she’ll do it… but every single day — it still gets done anyway! 👊🏼 Salute to all the #supermoms out there! 💖 . #moms #loveyourmom #spoilyourmom #mothersdaygift #mothersday
