More than Mother's Day: Celebrate with Us!

BlogHer Original Post

In case you were too busy thinking about today being Friday the 13th that you didn’t think about it, I’ll tell you: Mother’s Day is one month from today! You’re welcome. While you’re busy thinking about what to get your own mom, fantasizing about what your kids will make for your breakfast in bed, or grumbling about the day itself, BlogHer Moms wants you to share some of your favorite moments of motherhood.

More than Mother’s Day” is what we’re calling it -- to focus on the fact that mothering happens 365 days per year. Even when you’re not home, even when you absolutely need a break, mothering never stops. We want to hear your good stories -- the “aww” stuff. We want to hear your bad moments -- “the “omg, no!” stuff. We even want some of that in between -- the moments you think aren’t going to be very important but help shape how you think about yourself, your children or the world as a whole. A memory of a favorite -- or botched -- Mother's Day or that one time that your husband and kids treated you like a Queen -- or a peasant. We want to know what motherhood means to you, about you and for you. We want to celebrate with you, cry with you and laugh with you. And, really, we here at BlogHer want to feature you, as moms and daughters of moms, and your great writing.

Mother's Day

We encourage you to share your stories on your own blog and let us know via this handy form. Two or three times per week through Mother's Day 2012 (May 13), we’ll round up a few of our favorites and feature them in a post. There’s no prize. There’s no winner. There’s just you and us, celebrating More than Mother’s Day.

So please get to thinking and writing and celebrating your mom, motherhood in general or yourself this month!
