Catablog co-founder Janyne Moore wasn’t surprised by the bloggers’ answers. Moore said: “parenting bloggers strike well with mums and engage effectively with them, because motherhood is a blur of emotions and bloggers help them understand their feelings are real and normal.”

Catablog’s parent bloggers shared some inspiration for the best Mothers’ Day gift:

Karina Lane, The Laney Files:  “The gift of me-time is the best gift to receive. For once I won’t be pregnant or breastfeeding so I will be going to town this year.”

Rachel McDougall, Toilets Aren’t For Turtles: “The best Mother’s Day gift I received was a pendant with the names and birth dates of my kids on it. My husband designed it and then had it made using a 3-D printer.”

Christine Knight Thomas, Adventure Baby: “The best Mother’s Day gift I’ve ever received was when my husband booked me into a massage and then took my daughter and I out for lunch afterwards to a restaurant I was dying to try.”

Jessica King, Mama’s Vida Loca: “My husband bought me a selection of new release books to read and sent me on my way to tropical paradise (our favourite resort at Palm Cove).”

Bloggers also shared words of parenting wisdom:

Bec Allum, Thermo Bexta: “There is no way the depth of a mother’s love for her child can be described until you are privileged enough to experience it for yourself.”

Laura Marneros, Mizz Mummy:“Changing a nappy is similar to life – just when everything is fresh something will come along again instantly.”

Kate Parker, The Online Water Cooler: “Surviving a child’s tantrum would make a hostage negotiator proud.”

Karina Lane, The Laney Files: “If you take your children shopping one of them will always need to do a poo when you have a full trolley.”

Cat Brickell, Life Behind The Purple Doors: “Your children can survive without you, but don’t make them need to – make yourself a priority – your health, mental and physical, is important.”

Hayley Chetwynd, House Of Many Minions: “The way you parent today shapes the people your children will be tomorrow.”

Sarah Barrett, Creating Contentment: “Your children form you and make you the type of mother you are. We all parent differently because we all have different children.”
