39 Weeks! Jen, Editor from MWS Is Ready!

We are so excited for Jen Thomas, editor at MommiesWithStyle.com who is expecting her third baby any minute!

Her dearjohnnies gown is at the ready and here's what she had to say:

It’s been a long 39 weeks. I am ready to meet my baby girl any day now! My bags are packed, and one of the things in that bag that I am very excited about is my new dearjohnnies hospital gown and robe.

I was looking at pictures of myself from my last two births, and honestly, that big, gross, ugly hospital gown couldn’t have made me look any worse. I understand childbirth may not be the most glamorous time for a woman’s appearance, but really, those hospital gowns don’t fit, expose everything, and don’t do anything to make you feel special on your extra-special day.

Enter dearjohnnies designer hospital gowns. These beautiful gowns are soft, well-fitting, beautiful, and are hospital friendly with snaps on the sleeves and down the back, allowing easy access for breastfeeding, IV lines, etc. They are perfect to wear while laboring and giving birth, afterwards, or at home for ease and comfort. I plan to wear mine when I labor and deliver so I look and feel as good as I can!

A Customer Shares How She Delivers Our Gowns As A Shower Gift

We are honored that a great customer of dearjohnnies gives this poem that she wrote along with every gown she gives as a gift to her expectant mom friends! How special!

"dearjohnnies gowns are my "go to" shower gift for pregnant pals. I adore giving them, along with this silly poem"- Cathy (Winnetka, IL)

The mother-to-be is finally there.
No more reading US Mag in a lounge chair!
The role of her friends is to help her prepare;
After delivery she'll need tender-loving-care!
So here's a little something for her to wear
in the hospital when she seeks some fashion flair.
Forget those old gowns -- so dingy, we declare
Be stylish, well-groomed...a model of chic health care!
Much love on the occasion of this "expectant" affair!


All I want for Mother's Day...

As Mother's Day approaches I feel like at least once every day this week I have been asked "what are your big plans for Sunday?" The answer - none! In fact the more I think about it, the more I realize the last thing I want are big plans. I spend every day managing plans, activities and schedules for 5 people. On Mother's Day I do not want to eat at a crowded restaurant where I am trying to entertain, please and corral three kids, do not want a big gift, nor want a big fuss.

My real gift is realizing that I have (so far) succeeded in raising three happy, kind, beautiful girls who demonstrate their love for, and capacity to mother, each other, every day. They love to play together, miss each other when they are at school and wait anxiously to be re-united at the end of each day, and most importantly take incredible care of each other. They travel as a pack and leave no girl behind!

That being said.. for my husband who keeps asking "what do you want for Mother's Day?" Well, I want to sleep in, not make a meal all day and not be the "go to" person for all needs, big and small, in our household from 7am-7pm for just one day. Any mom will tell you these are true gifts!

Happy Mothers Day and may you all find sleep, peace and a chance to relax on Sunday!

What DO You Say?

So your best friend, mom, brother, or boss tells you they have Cancer... What would you say? What should you say?

With so many people diagnosed daily in the world today, take a few minutes to read this article from Cancer.net and then you will be better prepared. Your loved one will thank you for it.

From the article:
A cancer diagnosis often brings sadness, anger, confusion, and feelings of helplessness. These feelings make it important for the person with cancer to know that support and help are readily available. Many times, those closest to the person with cancer can provide the most support. However, sometimes it may be difficult to know what to say and what not to say, how to be sensitive, and how to remain supportive at all times.
