  • Mother's Day Story No. 2

    I just received this email from Daily Grommet customer, and friend, Nancy and it cracked me up:
    "I sent my mother a Smith Island cake for Mother's Day. Her reaction was hilariously near hysteria. I never knew this, but in 1973 my parents had lined up a week's vacation on Smith Island at a local's house. The deal was that Smith Island families put up visitors for a week and cooked for them--an early version of a B&B, I guess. They had finalized their reservation and the hosting couple had bought all the food--and then my dad had to go Detroit because Ford wanted to transfer him. My mom had to cancel the reservation.

    The woman hit the ceiling! She said that my parents would never be allowed to land on the island if they ever came back. My mom said that if that woman was still on the island and found out that cake was going to her, she would have stopped the shipment--or stepped on the cake before it went into the box!

    The funny thing is that I never knew my parents had lined up this trip. It was to be a get-away just for the two of them. I was in high school at the time, and I certainly remember Ford telling my Dad they wanted him to transfer, but I have no recollection of a cancelled trip to anywhere called Smith Island.

    My mom told the story to all her friends on the Isle of Palms, beginning with the preface "Nancy has a friend who has this company called Daily Grommet, and they feature one product a day. . ." So you got some publicity down there!"

    Thanks to Nancy and her Mom for sharing this crazy bit of serendipity in our mutual lives.

  • Mother's Day--Story No. 1

    A man I recently met asked me for a killer Mother's Day gift idea--he wanted something truly special for his wife.  After a few "research" questions, I pointed him to the Liquid Metal bracelet.

    I was delighted to receive this enthusiastic email this morning.

    This is my post-mother’s day huge “thank you”. My wife is a terrible liar. So, if she didn’t love your pick I would’ve known immediately. She LOVED it. She has never in the history of my gift-giving put something I gave her on right away - see my covert photo of her mother’s day afternoon nap (attached).

    I received some wonderful gifts from my three sons this year, but found myself equally delighted to play a tiny role in another woman's Mother's Day.  Her husband is the real hero, though, for caring as much as he did about her response.

  • Parents of Teens - You're Empowered!

    Mothers Day is on our doorstep, and the "You're Empowered! Parenting Teens with Conviction, Communication and Love" audiobook for parents of teenagers will make a wonderful gift for a mom you know. Sue Blaney is an award-winning author and speaker who specializes in supporting parents in successfully raising teenagers. Access the extensive free resources, articles, e-book, podcasts and more at www.PleaseStoptheRollercoaster.com.

    Sue offered to share a quick parenting tip for us. Click the audio link to listen in: Audio Tip from Sue Blaney 

    You say on the jacket “The secret to raising teens is communication.” Why do you say this?

    If parents and teens can talk, they can work through any issue they will face. And it is perfectly natural for communication to get difficult at times between parents and teens because teens are seeking independence and power all as a part of their natural development. This can be a confusing time; parents can benefit from learning some new approaches.

    What kind of information are parents looking for?

    Parents’ usually have three questions: 1.)What is “normal” teen behavior? 2.) Am I doing this right… and what are the “rules”? And 3.) How can I keep my teen safe from risky behavior? These questions provide the context for this three hour audio program.

    What will parents get out of the program? Give an example

    One point that resonates with readers is what I call the “70% solution.” It says “If you and your teen’s combined effort toward a common goal equals 100%, you need to be prepared to make 70% of the effort.” The program is full of concrete points that provide helpful insight about their teens’ behavior and about the small actions parents can take that will positively impact their relationship.

    Specifically, parents will learn what the three common communication mistakes are and how to avoid them, what matters most in keeping their kids safe from risky behavior, why tuning into their teen’s feelings is vitally important, and what words work against good communication.

    Why is this in audio-book format?

    Parents are incredibly busy today, and to be able to listen in the car or at the gym is really time-efficient. The workbook that accompanies the audio makes it easy to review the points later and access additional tips.

    Is there a type of parent for whom this program is most appropriate? What is the age range for the teens you talk about?

    I find parents of teens have a lot in common and one thing they really appreciate is to learn they are not alone! Hearing stories from other parents, like the ones shared in this audiobook really resonate with most parents with kids from 12 - 18.

    How did you come to develop this?

    My expertise is in communications, which provides a specific, and unique, perspective. I have developed a parent discussion group program (Please Stop the Rollercoaster! How Parents of Teenagers Can Smooth Out the Ride) that is being used in living rooms, schools, churches and synagogues across the country… but I’ve observed that not everyone has the time to be in a discussion group. This audiobook is for parents who want to invest in their relationship and are open to learning new approaches, but who are short on time. I try to communicate efficiently to make the material time -efficient for busy parents, and of course we also focus on enhancing parent-teen communication.

    What kind of response have you gotten on this audiobook?

    Not only did it receive a Mom’s Choice Award for excellence, it also won a Ben Franklin Award for best audiobook. But, awards aside, what is most rewarding for me is when I hear from parents directly. And many parents of teenagers tell me they really related to the stories and understood their teenagers better after hearing about things like the “growth and development factors” and the “invisible motivators” that drive teens’ behavior. Parents who have listened to this audio program are very enthusiastic about it!

  • What Mother's Day means to me

    Mother's Day is right around the corner, and today's Grommet, Animoto,  makes a "wow" kind of last-minute gift for Mom, Nana,  or Grammy!  We invited our dear friend Angella to share what Mother's Day means to her.  Let us know what it means to you, too.

    What Mother's Day means to me

    By Angella Dykstra of Dutch Blitz

    Mother's Day GiftFor as long as I can remember, I always knew that I wanted to be a Mom. I had a doll that I held in the crook of my arm who appears in nearly every photo of me between the ages of two and five. I am the eldest child of two girls, and would often (s)mother my baby sister more that she could handle.

    The reasons I chose my career as an accountant are twofold. 1. I find that it comes naturally to me, as well as challenging my intellect. I need this. 2. I knew working in this field would give me the flexibility to stay home more often when my (future) children were small.

    I come from a circle of friends that were married/engaged in their early twenties. In hindsight I find it quite humorous, but at the age of twenty-four I was convinced that I would spend the rest of my days single and alone. Possibly surrounded by a dozen or so cats.

    Within the year I met and married the man I get to (I get to!) call my husband. Fast forward nine years and we have three of the most phenomenal children that this world has ever seen. You really have no idea.

    There are many times in a day where I will sit back and look at these creatures. They are flesh of my flesh and bone of my bones. And yet, they are also these fantastically unique human beings who amaze me daily with their very being.

    Because of them, my life is fuller in every sense of the word. I smile wider, I laugh harder, I love greater than I ever thought possible.

    This is all because I get to (I get to!) be referred to as "Mom."
