Tomorrow’s the Day #SocialBlackout

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for MetLife. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I can’t believe my fourth Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It’s hard to imagine sometimes that I’ve been a Mom for that long. It’s hard to believe I’ve had two more kids since my last Mother’s Day! It seems almost a little unreal sometimes when I look at my kids.

Did I really make them? How is that even possible?

As surreal as it seems sometimes it is very much real and I love being a Mom and I love having a day that’s all about *me*, besides my birthday of course.

When I’m in NY we all gather together to celebrate Mother’s Day. Last year we went to my Aunt’s were I finally got a good picture of Mason and I ON Mother’s Day.


I even had a little bit o Elena in that picture (note the necklace). To this day it’s still one of my favorite pictures of Mason and I.

This year I’ll be in Virginia, where I was for my first and second Mother’s Day and we plan on laying low. I just want to enjoy my babies and maybe sneak out for a pedicure. Although let’s be honest I’ll be bringing Kyla with me. She’s still to young to leave home with Daddy for my liking. Separation issues. Mine. Not hers.

I wish that I could be in New York on Sunday too though. It would be amazing to see My Mom, my grandmother and my Oma. All women who have had tremendous influence over me throughout my life. Unfortunately that is not doable but Thank God for facetime because at least I’ll get to “see them”.

One thing I’m going to try my very hardest not to do? Go on Social Media.

I know. The Horror.

MetLife has created the #SocialBlackout movement which is challenges EVERYONE to log off of social media on Mother’s Day and give Mom (or yourself) the time and attention she/you deserve.

Don’t get me wrong social media is fun and there are so many times that I think of it as “me” time. But at the same time how many times have you said oh let me check Facebook and an hour later you’re still on Facebook? I know it happens to me.

There’s pretty much no better day than Mother’s Day to take this challenge.
