Even when life is crazy, and you’re not sure how you will survive, for me I look at my Littles and am so thankful for each of them. That’s not to say that they are perfect and that every minute is easy, but it is to say that they make my heart smile!
For my birthday last year, Addie (and Dada) gave me a sweet little necklace with Addie’s name. Then when Hayden was born a couple of weeks later, they gave me a tag with Hayden’s name on it. Now I know there are a few different Mother’s Necklaces out there. In fact quite a few wonderful options! But I like to keep things really simple.
You may have noticed this photo in Tuesday’s post.
I’m wearing my Mother’s necklace with all 3 girls’ names…
(I am also wearing my own rectangular tag that was given to me years ago with my name).
I ALWAYS wear this necklace. It’s from Mini Me Baby Gear. And honestly, Jaime, the owner COULD NOT have been any nicer! My husband had ordered the other girls tags for me, but I ordered Piper’s tag on my own. If Jaime is reading this post, I KNOW she is getting a laugh out of this because I ordered the tag with a different name, called her a few hours later that I had changed my mind, and then emailed again that I wasn’t sure about the second name. While I struggled back and forth about what Baby #3’s name would be and finally emailed back that I would order both names so I could decide when the tags arrived, Jaime on her own, contacted the vendor, Circle of Sentiments, and then told me to relax over the weekend, that I could let them know Monday night and they would ship it Tuesday so I would have it at the hospital (because I’m kind of crazy that way and really wanted #3’s tag at the hospital too!)
Mini Me Baby Gear was so amazing to work with! They are based in Michigan, so I know by the hours I was receiving emails from Jaime that she was working late! I felt like I had a next door neighbor friend on the other end of the email reassuring me that they would get it all taken care of for me, all I needed to do was pick the name and that she would take care of everything. Oh and that she loved both of them! LOVE HER for that! Such amazing customer service! How often do we get that these days? Someone that truly wants to help us, take the pressure off and get you what you want!
And at $45 I think it’s a great price! Additional tags at the time of purchase are $19.95
But I also love the simplicity of the single initials…
The simple designs, great price tag, and amazing customer service
all make this necklace and this site a FAVORITE!
The tags have also served as a great “teether” for Hayden, as well as entertainment for Addie. I switch them onto a longer army dog tag chain from time to time. Hayden loves to chew on the tags, while she is teething. And Addie tries to put the chain over her head and mine, or else she just wants to wear “mama’s ‘lace”. To me, this truly makes these tags a “Mommy Necklace !”

(Disclosure: I have owned my necklace from Mini Me Baby Gear for 2 years. I was not compensated or asked to write this post and Jaime did not know about my blog when I ordered my 3rd tag. After Mini Me Baby Gear was so amazing to work with, I asked to write a post for them and they generously offered a fabulous necklace for an MFE reader. Hope Mini Me Baby Gear and Circle of Sentiments become favorites for you too!)
