Mother's Day Musings

Mother's Day is coming up this Sunday. I have two little treasures who qualify me to celebrate the day myself, but this blog post will be dedicated to my own amazing "Little Mum".

Margaret Ruth (Hills*) Clark is my mother & is someone who really (yes REALLY!!) can do it all but never makes you feel bad because you can't. She is beautiful:

She is smart (graduated top of her class with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from the University of Toronto plus has various Industrial First Aid training & a HAM radio operator's license):

She is creative, patient, a superb cook & hilarious. She has 5 daughters & loves us each equally but uniquely.

& my mum still rocks it with her cool shades & bellbottoms }

Whenever I am in a parenting dilemma I think, "What would MY mum have done in this scenario?".

Happy Mother's Day, Mum. I love you!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas out there! I hope you are spoiled rotten on Sunday.

{ *Note*: The name of my company, Baker Hill Homes, comes from my mother's maiden name, Hills, & my mother-in-law's maiden name, Baker. I wanted the company to represent the creativity & tenacity of both of these wonderful women who are close to my heart.}
