Motherhood Survival Kit

Motherhood Survival Kit

No one tells you that being a mom will be as hard as it is. Mothers quickly learn how to forge on through sleepless nights, keep calm through diaper blowouts, and comfort little ones with skinned knees… and, of course, we wouldn’t have it any other way. The sweet whispers of “thank you” or “I appreciate you,” or even stolen moments with hugs and smiles make our hearts go pitter-patter.

Being a Mom is a hard job and that’s why I was absolutely in love with my “Motherhood Survival Kit” when I received it. My son’s teacher put them together for the kids to give to their moms.

Upon picking up my son from school, he handed me a small bag and exclaimed “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!” He proudly opened the bag for me and began plucking out the individual items inside… some candy, a flower, a candle… then I read the beautiful note that went along with it and it all made sense.

Motherhood Survival Kit


A Stick of Gum …to remind you to stick with it.

A Candle …to give you light when you feel burned out.

A Chocolate Kiss …to remind you someone cares.

Lifesaver …to remind you that everyone needs help.

A Snicker …to remind you to see the funny side.

A Rose …to remind you to take time to smell the flowers.

Confetti …to help you celebrate the good times.

A Penny …with thanks for sharing your thoughts.

A Bag …to help you keep it all together.

The Motherhood Survival Kit was such a great idea and could be scaled and tailored for any special Mother in your life. If you’re a teacher handing them out to parents, keep it small with single servings of candy, tea lights for the candle and  add in a hand print rose as a keepsake. If you’re giving it to a special mom upgrade the package with a dozen roses, a Yankee Candle and or a nice bag/purse.
