Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas ($50 or less)

Let’s face it, time slips away and before we know it, Easter has passed and BAM it’s Mother’s Day! Your baby daddy starts to fret, but not to worry, show him this and he will be golden.

My son made me a mama back in 2017 and I am forever grateful and my sweet daughter made me a girl mom in 2019. Whether your a mom of one, an adoptive mom, step-mom, bereaved mom or a mom of 12, you go girl! Us moms, working or stay at home, sacrifice so much to keep the smiles flowing and the giggle plentiful. It’s truly hard work, so Mother’s Day, the one day of the year should truly be about us, after all we deserve it.

Here is a little list I put together for shopping last minute. Everything is carefully curated with a budget in mind. All items are from Target, so you can utilize their amazing drive-up feature and stay safe while shopping for mom!

Alrighty mama’s, I have a guilty pleasure and its Riverdale. Im a huge fan of the show and you can catch me Wednesday nights watching shamelessly. Riverdale is on The CW Network and for those of you who don’t know what it’s about, it’s an adaptation of the classic Archie comics.

Our food journey-starting solids

Mama don’t fear-meal time tricks are here!

Starting solids was…lets just say different. My babes HATED IT and I am sure I am not alone on this. He would gag and turn his head in refusal. It was quite hilarious but also very frustrating. Our doctor recommended to us that we should start with a green veggie, so we did, we choose to start with broccoli. He loved it until he didn’t. One day he was so into it, then the next, he would cry like no ones business. It left us extremely confused. Continue reading Our food journey-starting solids
