In March I wrote a super successful post about How to Explain The Spirit Of St. Patrick’s Day To Your Toddler. Then in April I followed it up with How To Explain The Meaning Of Easter To Your Toddler. I received overwhelmingly positive feedback for both of these posts. I also learned so much from doing them, and found that I really enjoyed researching and writing them. A recurring comment that I received was that I should create a similar post for each upcoming holiday. I think that is a fantastic idea! I will have to explain each holiday to Morgan anyway and what a better way than to actually learn the facts behind them. Today I will be sharing with you How To Explain The Importance Of Mother’s Day To Your Toddler.
To be honest all I knew about Mother’s Day was that it is a National Holiday honoring mothers and motherhood. I am so every fortunate to have become a mother for the 1st time in 2015. Although I have been celebrating Mother’s Day with my own mother for years and years; until today I didn’t know much about the history of this special day.
Morgan is still too young to understand fully what I share with her but I wanted to make sure that I did my research so that I can pass on to her the stories and traditions of the many holidays that we celebrate here in America.
I do absolutely love traditions and customs. So I set out to learn as much as I could about Mother’s Day and the meaning behind the holiday. Here are the top 7 things that I have learned about the importance of Mother’s Day that I will use to explain it to my little Morgan. Thank you so much to my wonderful friend Google for steering me in so many interesting directions while researching this history.
