I can’t believe how many women I know who have either recently had a baby or are currently expecting. Really, I think it’s some sort of epidemic. There are babies coming out of the woodwork, so to speak. Ladies, you’re in for the ride of your lives!
As a mother myself, I can attest that being a mom really is like being on a roller coaster. From the novelty of soft “blankies” and smelly diapers to vegetables and learner’s permits, there is so much more to this motherhood thing than meets the eye. – Teaching our kids to share, play dates, ballet and soccer, report cards, stitches from a bike ride gone bad, chores, loud music, family dinners – Most of the time we’re just hoping our best was “good enough” by the time graduation rolls around. (Way too fast, I might add.)
This year, GiftTree wants to send gorgeous Mother’s Day Flowers to one deserving mom and we need your help! Please nominate a mom who you think is a one in a million. She can be your mom, or your sister, friend, neighbor, running buddy, co-worker, whatever. We just want to know why you think she’s the cream of the crop. Leave a post here telling us about your nominee. We want names, people, but first names are plenty for posts. If you win, we’ll email you for the dets. And lucky for you, the person who nominates the winning mom will receive a $50 GiftTree gift card too.
Want extra entries? Here’s how:
1. Join GiftTree on Facebook and leave a post on our wall telling us who you think should win the flowers and why.
2. Tweet about who you want to nominate. Make sure to include @GiftTree and a link to the contest in your tweet.
Deadline is midnight (PST), Wednesday, May 5th. Prizes will be sent to US addresses only. The winner will be selected by GiftTree’s Blog Team and will be notified by email. Both winner and nominee will be announced in a follow up blog post. Please note: If the winning mom lives in an extremely rural area, a shipped gift of equal value will be awarded. Flowers may not be delivered on Mother’s Day.
Now nominate away!
