Mother’s Day is just around the corner and that means that everyone will be searching for the perfect Mother’s Day card. What better way to express your enduring affection for mom. But to be honest, I think most Mother’s Day cards are lame.
Yep, I said it! While this does not apply to all Mother’s Day Cards, I feel like a majority are extremely bland and generic. So I made my own!
A few months ago, my daughter and I did a thank you note craft . She had so much fun creating and “signing” (scribbling) her name onto the cards. This art project got me thinking, if my toddler designed my Mother’s Day card what would it say? Laughter ensued because what popped into my head was hilarious.
I decided to ask a few other mom bloggers the same question. Each one of these honest Mother’s Day Cards shares a truth of motherhood. The answers range from sweet, cute, kind, hilarious and even gross. Because lets face it, motherhood can get dirty.
So sit back, put your feet up and enjoy these 15 truths of motherhood told through honest Mother’s Day cards.
