Motherhood is Tough, Flowers Make it Sweeter #OneToughMother

Teleflora Mother's Day Flowers

I love being Mom to my two kids. They bring me so much joy every single day. I love watching them grow into the young man and woman they are becoming.

Motherhood isn’t easy, even with the best of kids. 😉  It is a tiring job making sure everyone is fed, has clean clothes to wear, homework done, play dates planned, sports practice attended, house cleaned, dinners made, lunches packed, and the list goes on and on and on.

I know I often talk about my kids being Type 1 Diabetics, this new diagnose for both of my kids has been life changing for us all.


I’ve stood at the grocery store more than once with tears in my eyes because I can’t find a snack that is exactly 15 carbs, a requirement for kids on lantus.

I spend hours every week preparing meals, counting carbs, and giving injections. It’s hard to see them hurt and cry…

I wake up in the middle of the night every night at 3am to test my kids’ blood sugar numbers to determine if they need insulin, juice, or if they (and I) can go back to sleep. Even when my husband checks them, I’m awake and can’t go back to sleep until I know their numbers. Every night when I go to bed, I worry that one of my kids might not wake in the morning as 1 in 20 Type 1 Diabetics die in their sleep from low blood sugar.

It doesn’t stop when my kids go to school. There are days when I get 3 or 4 phone calls from both of my kids’ school nurses about their blood sugar numbers.

I am one tough mother. My kids are even tougher.

Motherhood is Tough, Flowers Make it Sweeter #OneToughMother

I say all of this to say that being a mom is tough. We all have to be tough mothers.  We have to rise to the occasion – with little sleep every single day – and night. It’s our job and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

We are all tough mothers, we all have our own challenges and we all deserve flowers on Mother’s Day.

I received product to facilitate this post.

Receiving the flowers upon delivery is half of the fun!We normally bring flowers to our moms on Mother’s Day, it’s been a tradition. This year, I decided to surprise my mom and mother-in-law by sending them flowers early. I know how wonderful and even giddy I feel when I receive flowers, so I knew they would enjoy it too. I had no idea how thankful and excited they would be. It was so nice to brighten their days with the flowers.

Moms Near and Far Enjoy Flowers Delivered

Even though our moms live close by, they still really enjoyed having their flowers delivered! They both went on and on about how much they loved their flowers and how thoughtful it was to send them.  Sending flowers isn’t just for people who live far from their loved ones, everyone enjoys receiving delivered flowers.

It was hilarious how both my mom and my mother-in-law thought the flower delivery wasn’t for them. They thought it was a mistake until they read the personalized card.

Teleflora makes sending flowers personalized. You pick the flowers that you think your mom will like the most including 3 variations of each bouquet and you can send a personalized note with your bouquet.

Surprise all the tough mothers in your life with a Mother’s Day bouquet from Teleflora this year. All of the above Mother’s Day bouquets are available on for purchase beginning on April 18th.
