Motherhood. Boy, is it a hard job. The days are long, the sleep is nonexistent and your chore list grows each day and never stops. But the hugs, the smiles, the small moments that I share with each of my children are the very reasons as to why I wanted to become a mom in the first place. Every year when Mother's Day rolls around, there are three things that I have on my list: sleeping in, an hour of alone time and then an afternoon with just plain, fun family time. I don't need gifts and I really don't want flowers. I just want some time for me but most importantly time with the people that allowed this holiday to become possible for me.

After I spend some time for myself on Mother's Day, I look forward to our family afternoon together. I love these small moments with my family. It doesn't have to be big and fancy, just time together. Last year we started a picnic tradition together and it was a blast! We packed a bunch of snacks and headed to the park for the afternoon. Our time was casual but filled my heart. A year later, my kids are still talking about it too. So with Mother's Day a week away, we have already started planning for our family afternoon adventure for this year!

First on our to-do list is snacks - I mean, of course it is, right? So I'll make sure I have a variety of foods that are easy to pack and not a lot of hassle. My kids are huge fans of Entenmann’s® Little Bites® Strawberry Yogurt Muffins. These muffins are made with real strawberries and come in handy pouches that are perfect for snacking on-the-go. Plus,with less than 200 calories per pouch, Little Bites® Strawberry Yogurt Muffins are a good source of calcium and vitamin D, and contain no high fructose corn syrup or trans-fat. Now that's a snack I can feel good about for my family! I love how easy I can throw them into my bag for our family adventure and know my kids will be happy snacking too.

As cliche as it sounds, the years really do go by fast. Soon my kids will be too cool for family time and our schedules will get even busier making it hard to spend time together. These small memories together is what fills my heart and reminds me why I love being a mom to these crazy, lovable kiddos. It's a hard job but I wouldn't trade it for anything else!
