Mother's Day a day to appreciate mom, get the best gifts @Kmart #AllforMom #kclub #Ad



  “This is a sponsored post, I am a Kmart K-Club blogger, though all opinions are my own.”

With Mother's Day close at hand, I got to thinking about growing up and how something's have changed and others have remained exactly as they were when I was a kid. I attribute a lot of who I am to my mother, she's been a big influence on my life and has taught me sometimes completely by accident some very valuable life lessons. But the one thing she's taught me over the years is that keeping the family traditions in tact is very important.


Every year we have a tradition of gathering for a week in Ocean City, New Jersey for a family vacation. And this is where I learned lessons that over the years have turned something I was not interested in into something now love to do. When we're together on vacation the thing we love coming together for is the traditional big family meals. 

Each night someone cooks the family a meal, it's here where my love for cooking grew. Learning how to cook from my grandmother, great-grandmother and mother as well as my aunt's turned a little spark into a roaring fire. We've been doing this for as long as I can remember and it's important to us to keep the tradition going and now it's my daughter's turn to learn.
 My mother, being the oldest of her siblings, is the one who is in charge of getting things organized and together and I see how important it is to her to make sure things run smoothly. And Kmart know just what moms can use check out, kmart.com/mothersday. My mom loves to cook and I have over the years bought her many gifts to keep the food coming! Just last year we bought her new pans from Kmart along with a new blender. A chef is only as good as his or her tools, so it's important to have great tools!

        

Now that we're all older, I can see just how difficult it is to get all these different lives to come together for a week. Growing up it was easy, we all lived within minutes of each other so getting together was a snap. Now that all the first batch of kids are now grandparents and their kids have kids, and we all live scattered around the country...it's not so easy. But it's important to us to get together.
This was a tradition started by my grandparents and has been kept alive, and now it looks like it'll be up to me since I'm the oldest of “kids” to keep this going. With all the years I spent helping out in the kitchen as a little girl I've become a pretty good cook and this summer I'll have my chance to cook for the whole family when we get together in a couple of month's. It's odd to to me that it'll be my turn...it just seemed like yesterday I was the little girl fetching the spices out of the closet or the butter out of their fridge.

We laugh and fight and make-up and laugh and fight and make-up....but it still ends up the same way every year that we had a great time together. Family is important and that's something my mother has instilled into me from the time I was a little girl.
That's something I'm instilling into my daughter and it's something I hope that in several years she takes up the cause and keeps the tradition going. 
Something as simple as cooking a family favorite meal can spark hours of fond reminiscing and it's important to be able to look back on the good old times but it's also important to look ahead at the great times yet to be had.

  1. I don't have a Kmart near me, so I haven't been to one in years. I used to shop there a lot when I was younger and still lived at home with my parents, though :)

  3. All but one Kmart store has closed in our shopping areas and the one that is nearest to us isn't a very inviting store. But when I was younger we shopped there all the time because the prices were great.

  11. I think she would be like any mom and love anything! I think as a mom we love the gift of time with our kids more then gifts, though that's a nice perk!
