When you become a mom you naturally have a special connection with other mothers. You instantly bond knowing another woman understands the daily challenges of motherhood. This may include sharing virtually everything whether it be your best friend for years or the nice lady with her daughter in the supermarket. You might tell how your baby refuses to sleep through the night or how your toddler has decided it is more fun to be naked (eeek!). She can confide in you how she still hasn’t gotten a shower for two days (can you tell?) and you will celebrate right along with her when you hear her child is finally going poop consistently on the potty. (I’m still waiting for that!)
Hallmark has introduced another great line of humor cards that celebrate the ups and downs of motherhood as only other mothers can truly understand, suitably named “Edge of Motherhood.” They start at only $.99 they are an inexpensive but oh so thoughtful way to support another mother.
Not to leave our poor kids out, Hallmark has also created a new collection just for them designed to arm parents with a little something extra to boost their confidence. They are both heartfelt and funny and give parents another way to show their support for every day events like trying out for a team or taking a test. This also start at the low price of $.99 or $2.99 for those with sound.
I was sent a few of each of these collections to check them out and I got more than a few laughs. My three year old son loved those with sound and as I’m writing this he keeps stopping by to open the monkey card which plays music and monkey sounds each time he opens it. Even lacking the ability to read, he finds the humor in the pictures and sound.
And because I love sharing the joys of motherhood, I can’t wait to send out a couple of the “Edge of Motherhood’ cards to my friends or sister at a time when they need a good laugh.
Both collections of cards are available at select Hallmark Gold Crown stores and other retailers where Hallmark cards are sold. Select “Edge of Motherhood” styles are available online.
Win it: Visit Hallmark and tell me who you’d love to give one of these cards to and why!
