Mother’s Day

It’s so hard to believe that this was my 5th Mother’s Day. You spend your whole life celebrating your mom on Mother’s Day, and then you have a child and suddenly Mother’s Day is yours too! It’s like, Oh Yeah! I’m a mom now too!

This little man made me a mom, and my life has been 10 times more fun these last 4 years. Emmet James was born the day before Mother’s Day, so my first Mother’s Day was spent in a hospital with a brand new baby. I was the happiest person in the world. And maybe the most tired person, too.

Now he is almost 4 years old. He makes us laugh everyday, and fills our hearts with joy. He is our biggest blessing. And I live for his hugs and kisses.

This year, we decided to make Nana a special mother’s Day cake. Emmet decorated it all by himself.

My husband’s mom is a very special Nana, and Emmet loves her “Up into the sky!” She is my mom now too, and the most┬áloving second mom a girl could have.

My own mom is in Florida, but I will get a visit from her very soon, and then we’ll┬ácelebrate Mother’s Day all over again. Maybe Emmet will make her a cake!


  1. Danielle, Thanks for sharing your mother’s day! It looked like a great day. That cake looks fun too! You’re a great mom!

  2. Love it, love it, love it!!! What a special day when we got our Emmet. Buddy, we will be thinking of you here on your shared birthday with Uncle Chip. You still are the best present he ever got on his birthday!!! And the best present I ever got on his birthday was seeing our Emmet come into this world and my brave beautiful sister who worked so hard to give us all this wonderful little being. You deserve all the wonderful Mother’s Days there are just for how hard you worked that day. I love you. Happy Mother’s Day.
