Today, I'm linking up with Amanda from i am mommy for a fun challenge!
When I was eight months pregnant with Cloe, my friend Jessica gave me a call one afternoon and said, "You're going to have a baby soon, and you're busy teaching all day, so I'm bringing over supper. What do you like?"
In my typical, indecisive manner, I him-hawed around and asked her to surprise us.
Wow! What a surprise: we got the biggest bag of the best Italian food! It was so good. I can still remember how much we enjoyed that hot, delicious meal!
She also brought us the cutest, softest baby blanket. Jessica and her boyfriend Andrew had made us the beautiful knotted fleece blanket. Isn't that the cutest? Our kids still cuddle up with it today!
So, yesterday when I read Amanda's challenge for National Help a Pregnant Woman Day on March 3, I was reminded of Jessica's kindness. I immediately jumped on board. I thought through my list of "mommies to be" (that I know of--announcements are welcome!) and started getting ideas rolling of how to show these moms that they are loved and appreciated!
Here are some of Amanda's ideas for helping or acts of kindness:
Stop by and fold some laundry.
Drop off baked goods.
Hand write her a note of love and appreciation
Babysit her other kids for an hour.
Send her a gift card to Starbucks. (for after the baby of course!)
If you are pregnant... just send a link of this post to everyone you know!
Maybe someone will read it and snap up the opportunity to do something for you!
So what do you think? Can we make March 3rd National Help a Pregnant Lady Day?
Who are you going to help?
