Mother’s Day is coming up, and I can’t think of a better Mother’s Day gift than a Mommy necklace. Before you start envisioning a sterling silver necklace with a charm of a Mother cradling a baby pearl, think again. The new and improved Mommy necklaces are so adorable that they may make you want to have more kids just to get one.
I got my Mommy necklace from Stella and Dot, and it is a staple in my wardrobe. Having a Mommy necklace like driving a mini van or being in the PTA; it gets a bad rap, but once you get used to it, it is the best thing ever. Mommy necklaces don’t have to look outdated. In fact, the mommy necklaces I have seen lately are bold, fresh, and chic. Here are a few of my favorites:
I was first introduced to Stella & Dot a couple of years ago, and I am glad that I was. My Mommy necklace is a staple in my wardrobe, with its simple neck chain and delicate charms. My necklace has my kids’ initials (lucky for me they all share the same initial so I only needed to buy one), their birthstones, and my husband’s initial.
Despite the fact that I have seen a few of the “Real Housewives” rocking this necklace, I still love it. I am a sucker for anything monogramed, and I love the fact that this Mommy necklace is bold and a little whimsical.
Let’s be honest. While some moms like to portray the entrance intro Motherhood as something magical befitting a stork, most of us know the real deal: motherhood involves excruciating pain. Pain in places that you didn’t know existed, pain that would make you want to slap your own Mother. And after all of this pain, comes what I refer to as the aftermath: hemorrhoids, engorged breasts, uterine cramps, and of course, the icing on the cake is a perfect baby who will not go to sleep. Motherhood can be like a battle, and you are the General. So, why not wear some Mommy dog tags?
