Walmart Mom of the Year! #MOTY

To be honest with you I don't know what I would do without my mother. She truly is my best friend, someone I can go to when I am sad, mad, happy and excited. Becoming a mom was truly something I looked forward to since I was a kid, not really knowing how much work and love really goes into becoming a mom.

Becoming a mother myself, I have aimed to be just like my own mother - caring, supportive and compassionate and always being there for her children. With the sleepless nights, the running back and forth to Dr. appointments with my son, sharing all the milestones, the ups and downs with my children I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Mother's really do deserve an award for all that they do, don't they? Walmart Canada thinks so and is asking everyone to nominate a mother they know that deserves this recognition.

Nominations are being accepted until July 8th, 2012. It is very easy to nominate a mother for this fantastic award by heading over to You can nominate any mother you chose doesn't have to be your own mother, it can be a friend, a co-worker etc.
