Favorite Mother's Day Memories

More New Mom Stories

Family Heirloom

My most special Mother's Day was my very first one when my daughter was almost 4 months old. We had everyone over for Mother's Day lunch and celebrated my birthday at the same time. My mother gave me her emerald-and-diamond ring and told me that she is passing it on to me on my first Mother's Day. I get to enjoy the ring and when my daughter Victoria has her first Mother's Day I will pass it on to her. --ToriJoshMommyplus1

Cell-Phone Surprise

I'm not a mom yet, but I have a beautiful stepdaughter that I adore. We only get to see her seven times a year because she lives about 10 hours away, so when my husband and I got married, I definitely did not feel like a mom. Well, the Mother's Day after we got married went by uneventfully. But the next day when I got in my car, my cell phone beeped to tell me I had a voice mail. My sweet stepdaughter, who was then 3, left a message saying "Happy mommy's day, I love you!" It was so sweet I started bawling. Then the next day I received an overnight package that had a Mother's Day card and her drawings all over it! It was so sweet and I'm so thankful that her mother helped her do that to make everything so wonderful! --lil1ontheway

Our Own Holiday

Last year on Mother's Day, my mother and I went shopping and "the baby" bought a present and flowers for me! It was so cute. It was my first Mother's Day as a mom, so it was truly special to me. I really understood how much joy a mother can receive from having children! Mothers deserve their own holiday! --*Steph*

In the Eyes of God

Last year was my very first Mother's Day as a new mom. It was an extra special day not only for me, but for our entire family because our daughter was dedicated to the Lord in a special Mother's Day infant dedication ceremony at our church. --Hayley's Mama

Daddy's Little Girl

Last year was my first Mother's Day with my daughter. She was 2 days old and we got to leave the hospital that day. I fell asleep and when I woke up, her daddy had put an outfit on her that said "I Love Mommy." That's when it hit me that she was really my little girl forever. --Candence

Words of Love

Before my daughter was born, I mentioned to my husband that I would like to have a mother's necklace someday. But after I had my daughter, I quit my job to become a stay-at-home mom and money was tight. I wasn't sure if he was still thinking about getting me the necklace but I mentioned that because of our money situation, the necklace could wait. On Mother's Day morning he told me my daughter had a gift to give me. It was the necklace that I had always wanted. He got the largest pendent and changed the birthstone to a diamond. It is absolutely stunning. And what surprised me even more is that my husband wrote me a very touching letter written by him from my daughter. I was in tears because it was so special and very much a surprise. --mommy@home

Lucky and Proud

Last year on Mother's Day my son was one week old. We all went out to dinner -- my mom and dad, my husband, my son, and I. I just remember feeling so lucky to be a mommy and proud to be with my baby boy. There is no feeling in the world like being a mother! --BTHmommy
