Monday Listicles

Happy Mother’s day to our moms. To us. And to the special women in your lives.

Last week Stacey from Mothering Moments shared with me her wonderful new link up called An hour in a day. It was so much fun reading about what you do in an hour of your life. Thank you for letting us peek into your typical day. And thank you Stacey for being a great bloggy friend and our inspiration.

I kind of called for a list of 10 things you wish you could delete this week because I was too afraid to be labeled corny. But I will do a list of ten Mother style myself. Please feel free to join me with any list you wrote. I cannot wait to read them.

For next week to thank my lovely husband for a wonderful Mother’s day surprises I am letting him choose a topic. He says to come back with a list of TEN THINGS HUSBANDS SHOULD DO. Clearly he forgot that I get to make a list too…

On with the show. List of ten things Motherhood gave me (which no one can delete).

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!




1. Unconditional love.

2. Patience beyond reason.

3. Someone to call my own forever.

4. Someone to blame my weight on forever.

5. Someone to blame my husband for forever.

6. Someone to teach silly things no one else wants to know.

7. Endless blog fodder.

8. Endless photo opportunities.

9. The best snuggles ever.

10. My favorite role in life ever-being a mother.

    I have to say, I am more than a little excited for next weeks list! Good pick from the husband :) I love your Mother’s Day list as well, so sweet. All the good stuff like cuddles and love as well as having these people around us to call our own, blame things on and enjoy – haha! Hope you had a great Mother’s Day today Stasha!

    I love this list as some of these things I never would have known or expected, but found them to be the best surprises about being a mom! #6 is great because we have an audience of little eager learning ears willing to hear anything we think is interesting enough to share! Great topic for next week :)

    I agree with Alison. More facial shots of you Miss Stasha! While I do adore your list, that photo is fabulous. I especially love that Lil J is still clinging to the shark, even during a hike.

    Yes x a million to number 10. Also agreed on having something to blame my husband for forever. I wonder if moms of girls feel like this as much as we moms of boys…? Can’t wait for next week’s list, though perhaps our husbands needed them *before* Mother’s Day? I’ll be printing some of them out for next year, no doubt!

    The unconditional love I get, totally and many of the others. But the patience beyond reason? Whew! Let’s just say that’s one I’m constantly working on with my two boys who pretty much fight 24-7!

    What a gorgeous picture! And a great list. I wish I could blame my weight on the kid – I actually lost a bunch after he was born but then gained it back when I went to work. I especially love #6,9 and 10.

    Happy belated Mothers Day.

    I am taking a long shot by linking up my Mother’s day post… I included my list of 10 gifts my mother gave me. Well, it’s 13 actually but it’s Mother’s Day so I took a few liberties.
    I hope your day was wonderful :)
