    Totally Great Mothers Day contest! one of my favorite mommy memories is when i was younger we would drive around long island, singing in the car and making up songs- so much fun ❤

    Favorite mommy momment are those puckered up goodnight kisses when I’m tucking my boys in! For my mom it would be watching her cook all the time.

    One of my favorite memories of my mommy was baking chocolate chip cookies with her, and getting to help make them -she always used the white & blue glass bowl that was her moms, and now I use that bowl with my daughters when we bake!

    Well I’m not a mommy yet but Sunday is my due date and I can’t wait to see my baby’s face is like expecting a surprise gift from heaven.

    You look amazing in the first photograph. My goodness, Girl!

    I will always treasure the memories of watching Bjoern, my 4 year old, dance for the Thadeaus, my 10 month old, and causing him to giggle non-stop. The interaction of the 2 boys teasing each other and squealing with joy, and the excitement of chasing each other is precious!

    one of my fave mom meemories is when i was outside, chatting with an elderly neighbor grandmother type, and i realized my 4 yo son was ;peeing in the bush, right behind us, in plain view. to this day, 15 years later, we all swear that “Mrs. lewis did not see anything…”


  8. Debbie May 5, 2011 at 8:06 AM #

    I cherish every single memory of both of my children, as they grow up so fast! My son just turned 20 and my baby girl is 15. I have too many favorites! I love the memories of seeing their sweet, sleepy, baby faces when they first woke up. They were always so happy to see me, to snuggle and to let me kiss and kiss their yummy baby heads. Ahhh… I miss that…


  9. Shelley May 5, 2011 at 8:48 AM #

    I love that you Thrifty Vintage Chics want mom’s to be fashionable and pretty! Every mom deserves that. I loved it when I picked my kids up from the day care after a grueling day at the office and my kids would come flying at me, “mommy! mommy!” I had missed them all day. And, their huge smiles and excitement to see me never, ever got old. Now that they are bigger, I still love getting the huge hugs and bright smiles. I will never get old!


  10. Heather May 5, 2011 at 9:58 AM #

    What a great contest! My favorite mommy moment is bedtime stories. My kids are aged 11 & 9 and still look forward to a story before bed.


  11. Danielle May 5, 2011 at 12:49 PM #

    My favorite mommy moment is when my daughter started saying “Scoot ovah, Rovah…let big Emmy come ovah.” She picked it up from me! 🙂


  12. Heather Eberlin May 5, 2011 at 12:50 PM #

    I am a single mom and feel that I am often too busy to relish in the day to day joys of motherhood. For Christmas, I took my little boy on vacation. It was time for just him and me. It was special and fun and full of love. That’s my favorite mommy memory.


  13. Kim May 5, 2011 at 12:51 PM #

    My favorite Mommy Memory so far is watching my 2.5 year old “mother” her baby dolls the same way she is mothered. She talks to them in the same tone of voice as I talk to her and she loves on them the same as I love on her! It’s so sweet to watch her show them affection!


  14. Layla Altman May 5, 2011 at 12:52 PM #

    My favorite mommy memory is when I was tucking my 3 yr old into bed and he started to tear up. I asked, “what’s wrong Turner?” He said, “Mommy when I grow up I don’t want to be a big old man. I want to be a Mommy like you.” Ok. I’m a single mom and this made my heart sink! Such a sweet boy!


  15. shysquirrelgirl May 5, 2011 at 12:53 PM #

    Everything snotty and grumpy about my baby makes me love her more. LOVE BEING A HOTT MAMA! <3!!


  16. Ryan May 5, 2011 at 12:54 PM #

    My favorite mommy memory is the first glimpse I had of both my kids. After 40+ weeks, I couldn’t wait to see what they looked like!


  17. Jamie B. May 5, 2011 at 12:56 PM #

    My mom is my best friend. I am her only child, so we had so many wonderful moments. My favorite memory is just her in general. She showed me how to be the mommy that I am today. Now my favorite mommy moment with my kids are sitting in the rocking chair reading lots of books! I love my mom…and I LOVE being a mom. Happy Mothers Day to all of the fabulous mommies out there!!

    We were out having dinner at a local Italian restaurant with my kids. We went around the table ordering desserts. I ordered the homemade chocolate gelato for my 4 yr old son. My son took a taste and then politely asked the waitress if she could warm “this” up.
    It was one of many precious moments.
    Happy Mother’s Day All!


  19. Alesia May 5, 2011 at 1:05 PM #

    My favorite mommy moment besides them. all. would be when my son started giving me spontaneous hugs and kisses. When I realized he WANTED to show me that he loved me and wasn’t just responding to my hugs I really felt so much love!


  20. Layla Altman May 5, 2011 at 1:05 PM #

    I have to share one more mommy memory… I was just about to fall asleep and my son comes walking into my bedroom… and he’s tearing up! I ask him why he’s sad. He says, “Mommy, sometimes when things are so beautiful, they make you cry.” The wisdom of a 3 yr old is sometimes profound. Just had to share!


  21. Allyson B May 5, 2011 at 1:06 PM #

    My favorite memory is when I just wake up all grumpy and tired and my daughter tells me I am the most beautiful mommy in the world, and kisses me on the nose.


  22. Candice May 5, 2011 at 1:18 PM #

    There are so many but today I remembered the time when my son noticed his shadow for the first time. “Momma, WHAT is that???” So much fun watching them notice the little things we don’t even notice anymore.


  23. Michelle May 5, 2011 at 1:23 PM #

    my favorite times could be when I am frustrated or in a hurry and my daughter (who is 4) will say “MOM” and sometimes I won’t answer right away and she will repeat “MOM” then I will say “yes” or it could be a “WHAT” then she will sweetly say “I love you” and look at me with her beautiful blue sometimes green eyes and it melts my heart every time! and it keeps me in check as to why am I always so rushed!


  24. Becci May 5, 2011 at 1:23 PM #

    Favorite Mommy Memory: The day I finally got the courage to leave my husband – I walked in the door of my parents’ house with a suitcase and my three little kids. My Mom (who generally is NOT touchy feely, but more judgy judgy) didn’t say a thing. She just held out her arms, folded me up in them and let me cry into her shoulder. When I really needed her – she was there.


  25. Emilia May 5, 2011 at 2:10 PM #

    My favorite moment with my mother is the Thanksgiving when she accidentally left a glass dish on the burner and it exploded and comepletely ruined the dinner, but my mom didn’t even bat an eye, we laughed it off and made another dinner…she’s the best cook and she turned something stressful into just a really funny moment :). Happy Mothers Day Mami


  26. Andrea May 5, 2011 at 2:17 PM #

    My favorite mommy memory is of the three years I spent as a single mom after I divorced my sons’ abusive father. Those years taught me so much about myself, & what it means to be a mother, about standards & love & what a family is. I am happy to have found a man who deserves us, & it warms my heart to see how my sons flourish with the love of a father, but I will always miss the nights we spent in our pj’s, just the three of us, reading books & snuggling & laughing.


  27. Charissa May 5, 2011 at 2:19 PM #

    I remember the many times my mother took my sister, brother, and me to the Baltimore Inner Harbor. We’d visit the water, old submarines and ships, the Science Center, and the National Aquarium. So much fun!!


  28. Melanie May 5, 2011 at 2:49 PM #

    My favorite Mommy memory was when I was reading to my 2 young boys one night after a hard day of ‘where is my daddy’ talk, and my oldest looked up at me and said ‘Mom, you are the best Mom’ with my youngest nodding. He asked me if I knew why – because I’m a rockstar, I make the best soup, I always tuck them in at night and give non sloppy kisses, I play cars, I look pretty even when I’m grumpy and I will never leave them. He then said ….’you know that’s love, Mom. Good old fashioned hippie love.’ I lost it between tears and laughter all due to the hippie love of a 5 yr old.

    Oh wow! What a great contest for Mother’s Day! My favorite mommy memory would have to be the times when my mom, for whatever reason, would lay down her “super-busy” hat and come outside with all of us kids and play a form of backyard baseball that all us neighborhood kids had made up. She has this whole-hearted laugh that makes the whole world delight in her on the rare occasions we hear it.

    As a mom, I’ve loved every minute of raising my baby boy. He’s now 10 and the memories flow in abundance!


  30. Joy May 5, 2011 at 3:25 PM #

    My favorite memory is when my baby (who now 8) was first delighted to see me. I had taken a break from mommyhood and gone to a movie with a friend. When I came home, I remember my baby squealing with excitement to see me…one of the best feelings in the world.


  31. Carly Moore May 5, 2011 at 3:39 PM #

    There are so many memories to choose (both of my own motherhood moments and those with my other) so I’ll write about my most recent. Yesterday in the car at a stop light I reached back to touch my son and he grabbed my hand. He then asked me to do it again. So I reached back and in stead of giving me his hand he gave me stuck out his shoe. We bothed laughed as he said “ha, I tricked you”. It remindede of the sense of humor and playfulness we have in our relationship and it was the first “prank” he had played on me. One of many to come I’m sure.


  32. Candace May 5, 2011 at 4:43 PM #

    My favorite mommy moment: When my grandfather asked what my 7 year old daughter wanted to be when she grew up her response I want to be just like my mom.


  33. leann gorman wood May 5, 2011 at 4:44 PM #

    my first mother’s day! i think my favorite moment so far is the first time juniper belly laughed. greatest sound in the world.


  34. Amanda May 5, 2011 at 5:08 PM #

    My favorite memory was when my mother would take me out to get a snowcone for a good report card. We’d then go eat them at the park and chat for hours. =) Happy mother’s day!

    My daughter Audrey, who is all grown up now, was out gardening with me when she was 3 or 4. I saw her talking to the flowers, which I thought was pretty neat anyway but when I asked her what she was saying. She replied. “Mommy I am talking to the bees, I told them I went to Mc Donalds for lunch today.”


  36. Kristin May 5, 2011 at 7:29 PM #

    I was pregnant with my now 4 year old and my now oldest 12 year old then 8 years old would say most every day. “Mom I’m so excited to have a little brother, we can play this is going to be awesome”. Then the little one was born. About 3 weeks later, the older one said… “He doesn’t do anything”.


  37. Itty Kay May 5, 2011 at 8:43 PM #

    Love it Robin!! You’re so awesome 🙂


  38. Itty Kay May 5, 2011 at 8:52 PM #

    oh and my favorite Mommy memory is when my son at one year of age (he’s two and a half now), with a vocabulary of barely five words, noticed my hair looked different, and kind of squinting up at me funny, said “mommy hair nice!”


  39. Valerie May 5, 2011 at 10:12 PM #

    My favorite mommy moment was giving birth to my son, with my mom by my side.

    Plus, the first time he called me “Mommy!”


  40. Wendy K May 6, 2011 at 8:13 AM #

    My favorite mommy moment was my very proper mom was holding her first grandchild fo the first time and was moved to tears …. Only to have my brother (the jokester, and father of the newborn) say as he put his arm around our Mom, “you know what this means Mom? I had sex!” haha She laughed!


  41. Bobbie D. May 7, 2011 at 10:57 AM #

    Meeting my then 4-month old son for the first time at our adoption agency’s transitional home in Ethiopia. I was shocked at how tiny and fragile he was. He shattered my heart to pieces (in a great way) that day and continues to do so every second of the day two years and 25 days later–not that I’m counting or anything…


  42. Lindsey May 7, 2011 at 10:22 PM #

    My first mother’s day, one month after my daughter was born, was so bittersweet. I was single, scared, but so in love with a tiny girl. 5 years later, I celebrate mothers day as a mom of 4 (two stepkids) and am so proud, so lucky, and so excited about all the years to come.
