  • Us Mom Squad Moms think motherhood is the best, most rewarding job in the world and we are so proud to be Moms.

    We love watching our children grow and delight in their accomplishments. We are there to scoop them up and shower them with kisses when they get hurt, but we also know when to just let them do things on their own.

    Its our job to teach them not only how to eat, talk and walk, but also to be kind and well-man-nered, to share and to have empathy for others. Moms teach children how to be little people from scratch.

    Being a Mom means something a little different to each of us, so we asked Moms at all different stages of motherhood: What doebeing a Mom mean to you? Each week leading up to Mothers Day, well share their responses with you:

    Hi from Emily

    Emily B.

    I have found this quite hard to quantify to be

    honest. I

    am not a huge romantic who thinks that bein

    g a mom

    has completed me or anything like that, whi

    ch I have

    heard often but it has definitely changed

    my life in a

    way I didnt know was possible.

    Being a mom to me means being constantly

    chal-

    lenged and finding a way to survive each

    day hopefully

    whilst having fun and teaching him about ho

    w fun the

    world should be for him. It is about love and a

    lways

    striving to be good enough for him, realising

    that I

    wont always be good enough and yet conti

    nuing to try

    and showing her what love and family is all a

    bout.

    Being a mom means being on call 24/7 no m

    atter

    what else is going on in my life or how sick/t

    ired I feel,

    and realizing that whilst frustration can be a

    huge part

    of my everyday life with my 20 month old, I

    wouldnt

    chance it for the world.

    Stress1. First Things First: The secret to holiday happiness is to start planning NOW. Yes now, while

    the weather is still good and the yuletide crush has yet to hit the mall.

    Plan Meals Ahead: Looking for conve-nient, fast mealtime solutions? There are plenty of great resources on the Internet, such as the Louis Kemp Seafood recipe database

    Delegate: You can't do everything. So share the celebration and the joy and the planning with family and friends. Don't wait until it is snowy and cold to get the kids untangling the lights and finding the ornaments in storage.

    Take Care of Your Body: A person can only cram so many activities into their calendar. Over-commit-ment and lack of sleep can lead to major stress. Self-care and making sure to get enough sleep are especially important during the holidays.

    Get a Handle on the HolidayHelpings: Ac-cording to a National Institutes of Health study, the weight people gain during the holiday season adds up year after year. Try not to overindulge this year. Allow yourself only a taste of rich foods during holiday parties and try creating healthier versions.

    Keep Expectations Realistic: Slow down, savor the moments and try not to rush so fast through the season that you miss the good stuff. Having a realistic attitude can go a long way toward making holidays less stressful and happier for all.

    Check it Out: For starters, make a list of what needs to get done. Set priorities for what needs to be accomplished along with a timeline. This includes menu planning, gift selection, shopping, baking and cooking. Once you've written it down, it will be easier to keep it in mind and get it done.

    Spread the HolidayJoy: Communicate with your family it's easy to assume that your family knows your plans just because you've mentioned them in passing. Make a point of gathering your family together to talk about family get-togethers and outings, so that every-one is aware of the schedule.

    Mark Your Calendar: Set specific dates and deadlines for what you want done and when. Then stick to your schedule
