Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.


Pastries for Parents

This week, Paislee’s preschool hosted Pastries for Parents one morning before school started. Since Father’s Day comes after school is out, they have this little morning to celebrate both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. 

There were little tables set up for each classroom, and pastries with coffee and juices on a table at the front. All of the tables were set up with little gifts that the children had made for their Mom’s and Dad’s. It was really sweet and special, and we all just sat around and ate pastries while our children showed us the little things that they made us for Mother’s and Father’s Day. Paislee’s class made little necklaces for their Mom’s that said ‘MOM’, and cards for their Dad’s.

I am a sucker for little handmade gifts from my children, especially when they have their pictures or handprints on them. Thanks to Pinterest I have so many ideas of cute things to do with them over the years. After attending Pastries for Parents, I have started thinking about what to do for their Daddy for Father’s Day this year. Last year, we made him a special picture frame with their pictures in it and they are holding letters to spell out ‘DAD’. It is one of my favorite ideas that I’ve found so far.

What are your favorite gifts that you have received from your children on special holidays?
