So I’ve had some history with mother’s day gifts. Here’s what I’ve decided, I’m all about the charms. Things that dangle, aside from shrunken breasts used to nurse rabid spawn. I love the idea of a charm bracelet or necklace, where each year a new charm can be added.
I have to be honest. I don’t love things that scream, or even whisper "mom." I’ll happily wear a macaroni necklace, but a photo of my kid? It’s just not me. I also don’t love the idea of a necklace that reads, "mom" or any variation thereof. "Best Mom," "World’s Best Mom," "Greatest Mom on Earth." Just ew. I can’t help it. I’m never going to be that "in your face" mom. I’m all for being the greatest mom on earth, even if it does remind me of a circus ring of elephants. I just think there’s a tasteful way of going about it.
So in honor of babes with babies, I suggest these love notes of affection. Add charms you already have to a few stackable bangles for a fun flirty take, more modern than the traditional charm bracelet.
I am not for matchy matchy, mind you, but I kinda can’t help wanting to get a bunch of fun charms for Abigail throughout her life. And on mother’s day, we’d each get one, the same one. But then what about Kind Sir? What a total gyp! I’d of course want one that reminded me of our special bond, too. This means it will have to be a ball or a car. I’m going to need to think this through. In the meanwhile, it’s fun to look. Now I’m off to go plan for the baby shower we’re throwing TOMORROW! I just returned from LA last night. Exciting news to share soon!
