Their real life experiences managing children, husbands, jobs and the general chaos that daily life can often dish up leaves outsiders asking these WonderMoms, how do you do it?

Sue in Florida sent in a video telling the tale of how she returned home one night after a long day at the office to find her three children engaged in a full-fledged food fight. Macaroni and cheese was plastered to the walls, furniture and floor. One child was standing on the kitchen table screaming and hurling handfuls of pasta while the family dog ran around attempting to lick up as many stray noodles as possible. Sue’s husband was in the middle of the fray attempting to regain control, but fighting a losing battle. After negotiating a ceasefire, bathing and putting her children to bed, Sue spent the next two hours scraping and scrubbing dinner of off nearly every surface in her kitchen and dining room.


Completed confessional videos about the craziest days ever should be submitted for judging on the Downy Wrinkle Releaser Facebook page. Visit, click on the WonderMom contest and upload a video.

Personalized books and gifts from Chronicle Books! Mother's day Gift Ideas!

If you are already familiar with Chronicle Books, you know that they have several fully personalized books that are popular with the kids – however, they now offer personalized memory journals for adults – My Quotable Kid and One Line A Day– both make great gifts for Mother’s Day!  I had the opportunity to personalize and receive both of these books and I love them! One Line A Day is a Three-Year Memory Book and inside there is space to write in on every day for three years.You can write a thought, a quote or a sentence to remind you of something that happened that day. My Quotable Kid is a Journal of Unforgettable Quotes. This one is my favorite since it has different shaped talking bubbles that you can write in what your child said. There is also room to write their age, when and where they were when they said it. These would make wonderful Mother’s Day gifts especially for new Moms.

Art & Sole by Jane Weitzman The Perfect Mother's Day Gift & Coffee table book!

A&S_book low-res

Jane Weitzman’s first book Art & Sole by Harper Collins Publishing makes a perfect Motherʼs Day gift.
Retailing for $25 at Barnes & Noble, Stuart Weitzman boutiques and other retailers across the country, Art & Sole makes an impeccable gift for shoe and art aficionados everywhere.

Art & Sole’s red cloth case with an elaborate crystal embossed shoe on the front cover, gold gilded bordering, and a satin ribbon marker creates an original gift, an eye-catching coffee table book and a statement piece.

The dazzling cover makes a great conversation starter for any shoe lover, art enthusiast, interior designer, and fashionista.
Art & Sole is also a philanthropic purchase as Jane Weitzman will continue to donate 100% of
profits to Ovarian and Breast Cancer Research.

Not meant to be worn, art shoes are pure fantasy. Art & Sole showcases approximately 150
shoes of the more than 1,000 Jane Weitzman has discovered and commissioned for display
since the first Stuart Weitzman retail shop opened in the mid-1990s on Madison Avenue. Using
the best of this collection, many of the shoes are in printed form for the first time. With an
introduction by Jane Weitzman, the shoes are featured along with brief, identifying captions, in an
impeccably designed, graphically compelling, artful package. Thumbnail photographs of every
shoe in the book, along with a more in-depth description and a brief biography of each artist are
also included.

I received this book and the photos are simply just beautiful! This will make a wonderful coffee table book and Moms will just love it!
