10 Cards For New Moms


I spent a half hour in the Hallmark store the other day looking for the perfect card to send to a new mommy friend. Much to my dismay, I couldn’t exactly what I was looking for.

In case you’ve ever encountered the same problem, I made a few to share…

Might as well let new moms know what they’re in store for, right?

Well, I certainly think so.

    Love this. I’m going to a baby shower this Sunday. I think this might be to realistic for a first time Mom. I will be sharing them with the others. Thanks for a good laugh.

    This is perfect. I’m going to a baby shower this weekend and encountered the same problem in the card aisle. Didn’t help that I was standing there with two cranky, fighting kids.

    As a mother of 2 boys, I completely agree with “Boys are disgusting, Best Wishes with Yours!” WHAT is their obsession with bodily noises & functions; creepy critters; and mud puddles. I’m fully convinced those obsessions are part of their Y-Chromosome! (But I wouldn’t trade my demon boys for anything on earth)

    Awesome, my favorite is the behind wiping.
    Worse mommy moment ever, major ummmmm ‘explosion’ outside a cafe in San Francisco. Ran out of those nifty wipes. Had to use my sweat shirt and the night gown I had packed in my suite case. I still miss that sweat shirt and I washed the night gown and gave it to my sister-in-law because I am just mean that way at times.

      My births weren’t particularly beautiful, but the kids sure are. This is celebrating them! Just with some silliness and reality and much-needed “Laugh, Mommy!” attitude.

      The juxtaposition of the pictures with the words is perfect.

      Birth shouldn’t really always be celebrated. It is a self-centered choice made by the parents to gamble with a child’s life (they could be born with any sort of mental or physical illness) and is leading to world over-population. I know that AFTER the fact parents are the most selfLESS creatures on the planet, but in lieu of the self-centered initial choice, I prefer to say “I wish you a happy and healthy baby” instead of “congratulations”. I thought these cards were funny.
