What It Means to be a Mom

Every morning I wake up to the sounds of two little girls yelling “mommy”  from the other room. I open my eyes, check the clock to see that it’s the wee hours of the morning, and then glance over at my baby boy sleeping peacefully next to me in his crib. Five years ago, these early morning wake-up calls would have been absolutely dreadful. But now, it’s the best alarm clock I could have ever asked for.

10 Handmade Gifts for Mother's Day

One of my most memorable Mother’s Day gifts I’ve ever received is a picture frame my oldest daughter made me. I still have it sitting on my dresser. It’s been there since the day she gave it to me two years ago.

A Latin Mother's Day Poem

In Nicaragua, where my family is from, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the 30th of May. On this day, everyone dons roses (either red or white) on their shirts in honor of their mamas, and there is dancing in the streets.

My mother tells me that when she was a girl, she memorized this poem at school and would recite it to my grandmother every year. To this day, no matter where my mom is on Mother’s Day, she will call up my grandmother and recite the poem to her. It is a small gesture, but one that is packed with so much meaning and magic. It’s as if in that moment when the words of the poem are being spoken, with love and reverence, they are both transported to that time years before when my mom was a small girl and my grandma was a young mother caring for seven little ones. It has been many years since my grandma’s kids left the nest, but she is still so loved by her children (and grandchildren and great grandchildren too!).

This Mother’s Day, perhaps you will want to share this very special Spanish poem with your mama.
