After the rush of the holidays and then the dreary January, February has always been a first light on the horizon of spring for me. From the grocery stores to the malls we are hit with red and pink hearts to remind us that we need to show love for those in our lives.
Valentine’s Day takes on a whole other meaning for a new Mom. Love for your child cannot be described in a card and as much as Hallmark does their best, there are no words for the unconditional love a Mama Bear has for her cubs.
Not a day goes by that we don’t show love for our little ones, but it is not in candy and cards, it is through making sure bums are always dry or toes are always warm. It is getting up in the night, no questions asked, to listen to what happened in a nightmare. It is driving to and from school and then to and from again because someone forgot their favourite book. We show love with every movement of every day and then we get up the next day and do it all over again.
It isn’t a romance, it isn’t all lollipops and roses; it is love. You hold them close to your heart from the second of conception and that love never fades.
Moms. We do it all. And we expect nothing in return.
West Coast Kids has teamed up with Little Unicorn to thank one special Mom for everything she does. “Family is a real value at Little Unicorn and cuddling your baby envelops your little one with love and makes us [all] happy”
Little Unicorn’s products are thoughtfully created with hand-painted designs and keep in mind what Mom really needs.
Nominate a Mom that you think deserves that little bit extra recognition this year.
