The best Mother’s Day cards

I was still pregnant when I experienced what I would call my ‘first’ Mother’s Day. Even though I wasn’t technically a mum, my role of mum had started many months before.


Mother’s Day had always being about my mum, stepmum, and mum-in-law, so it felt weird to think of myself as a mum. But for the first time in my life, I received a glimpse of what Mother’s Day as a mum is like. Little did I know that every year would be different as your children grow and reach new developmental milestones.


For the first few years, my wonderful husband would write a card on behalf of my children. However, that all changed once they could hold a pen. So far I have collected eight beautiful Mother’s Day cards, each very different from the previous year – from scribbled pictures to heartening messages of love.


Even if you don’t usually buy a gift for Mother’s Day, don’t overlook a card. Take it from me – mums treasure every single one. Here are some of our favourites.

The best thing my mum taught me: Chris Kaiser, www.clickatree.com

“The best thing my mum taught me was to eat healthy. As a child I never appreciated her efforts, but these days I’m grateful it got so ingrained in my eating habits that I automatically eat healthy most of the time. It’s a big win, and a learning I will profit from every single day for my entire life.” – Chris Kaiser
