Celebrating Your Mom Moments this Mother’s Day
To celebrate Mother’s Day, we asked the thredUP community to share their most memorable mom moments. Those moments that make you realize how truly special it is to be a mom or have a caring mother in your life. We received dozens of beautiful stories and we’d like to share some of them with you.
To all of you moms out there, thank you for taking on one of the toughest jobs in the world! We wish a very happy Mother’s Day, from the thredUP family to yours!
“When my siblings and I were babies, my mom made up a special song for each of us that told us how precious we were to her. She would sing it to us to comfort us. Even when we were older, we sometimes asked her to sing ‘my song’ if we needed some extra loving.” — Kristen Cleghorn
“My son, Adrian asked me what his ‘heart’ (not the physical one) was, and I told him it was something he could feel but couldn’t see. He responded, ‘I don’t think I have a heart, mama!’ And I said, ‘yes you do, your heart is what you love with!’ He simply pretended to put something in my hand and said, ‘here, mama, keep my heart so it doesn’t break.’ (Adrian is 3)” — Abi Fasciano
“My most memorable ‘mom moment’ was introducing my son to my 90 year old grandmother, with my own mom watching nearby. It was so touching to see the two of them interact and for all of us to enjoy the special opportunity to have three generations of our family together.” — Shana Nichols Alvare
“When I held my daughter for the first time. She was quiet, eyes open and content. I said ‘nice to meet you. I am your mom.’ I swear she gave me a smile the best way a newborn could.” — Tricia Clarke Bell
“I’ll never forget how my four-year-old daughter leans in and kisses her little year old brother on the forehead and tells him she loves him. I hope their bond is always so strong and that she keeps her motherly nature.” — Andrea McPhail
