Biggest Lesson I learned from being a mother? 1. How much you could love another person....there is no end to how much I love my daughter. 2. How much my daughter watches and listens to everything I do and say...it has made be all around a better person b/c I am constantly thinking about what she will think.

The biggest lesson I've learned (so far) is that there's no one right way to do things. Every family has to find out what works for them.

P.S. So excited about the giveaway!

i'm not a mother so i'll have to answer the other question. hmmm, biggest lesson my mother taught me...to be very wise about who i love (who i choose to marry). she taught me not to settle, no matter what and take as much time as i need getting there.

How fun - I didn't know you were opening a shop! Congratulations... I just went and checked it out. Everything is so cute (I think I like the red button one too!).

Biggest lesson learned from being a mother? Patience and the meaning of unconditional love. Everyone tells you that you will love your baby, but I don't think you can ever truly prepare for that heart stopping moment when you see them and you are overcome with love for that tiny baby. And the funny thing is that as much as you think you love them in that moment, your love continues to grow every single day. It's amazing.

Lesson learned from being a mother: From the moment of your first child's birth to your dying day, you have said a sweet farewell to the days of being "un-interruptible."

Fun giveaway! What I automatically think of when it comes to my mom and the lessons she has taught me is this: whenever I am feeling down and out, she would always tell me "Buck up beaver!". Sounds really silly, I am sure, but I always repeat this to myself when I am having a bad day and it cheers me right up. I think because it reminds me of her, and I can picture her saying it to me (we live three hours apart-so I constantly miss her). Pretty random, huh?

the biggest lesson i have learned from being a mother is: PATIENCE. with three kids i always need to remember to be patient and listen to each child every day bc even though it may sound unimportant to us at teh busy moment they are trying to tell us all about whatever it may just be teh MOST important thing ever to them that shapes their future existance, right?! So i listen to my kids when they talk(weel ltry to most of teh time). xo

What is the biggest lesson you have learned from being a mother? With as little time as I get to spend with my baby girl, my old habit of doing this rightthissecond has been reformed. Those dishes wait until she goes to bed so I can get as much time with her as possible!


Thank you for this awesome giveaway! Your cuffs are adorable!

Biggest lesson: Tthat I don't have to or need to be in control at all times... It's my job to teach my kids to make their own choices. Oooh, and this is tough to do at times.

Love your cuffs! Way to go on opening your shop!!
