Happy Mother’s Day!
Happy Mother’s Day from Ellie!
Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate all the special ladies in our lives. When they’re not working at Ellie, owners Natalie and Kelly have the full-time job of being a mom! In celebration of Mothers’ Day, we asked them a few questions on what makes motherhood special to them:
Q: What’s your favorite part of being a mother?
Kelly: The LOVE… I had no idea I would love my children as much as I do and that they would love me as much as they do.
Natalie: My favorite thing about being a mother is experiencing the unconditional love for my children as well as their love for me. There is nothing like coming home from a long day at work to be greeted at the door by two excited little girls.
Q: What is something your mother taught you that you wish to pass on to your own children?
Kelly: My mother always taught me to be respectful to other people. She taught me to be polite to others and use good manners, such as saying “Yes ma’am” and “No ma’am.” I hope my children grow up understanding the importance of being respectful toward others.
Natalie: My mother taught my brother and me to treat one another with kindness, and she didn’t allow us to fuss and fight all the time. I want to pass that along to my children; I hope they end up having a close relationship with each other.
Ellie would like to wish all the mothers out there a wonderful Mother’s Day! Be sure to say an extra “Thank you” to the important women in your life!
