|Mother's Day Makeup with Maggie|
This past Mother’s Day I worked doing makeup on ten models for a competition they needed photographs for. Having three daughters we usually spend the day together going to lunch and doing something fun but they too were working. After the death of my brother four years ago I wanted to be there more for my Mom than I needed to be honored for being a Mom.
I love extending my Birthday basically all of June so why not celebrates Mother’s Day a few days as well? So my Mom and I shared a beautiful lunch out the Saturday before and then I had time with my kids on Mother’s Day where I received beautiful gifts made and bought that just made me cry happy tears.
For Mom’s out there you know how it is you might preach, harp and nag to get your kids to hear you out or help them in their life and think they might never get it. Then one day you see these little souls are bigger and they are getting it. They make you proud in all they do and accomplish.
Ever since I had my kids I worked part time I was lucky to have such a supportive force of family to help me with my kids so I could still be me. My kids are strong little women and I have no worries that one day they will make great Mother’s.
I also thank my Mom Judy for giving me advice, love and supporting my ideas all these years. My best advice to new Mom’s, you don’t need to be Wonder Women to be a Mom. You also don’t need to lose yourself while being a Mom because your kids won’t forget you while you’re away at work. Keep in mind one day they grow up and move out and you need to have a life and a career.
