This Mother’s Day, Take a Mom Moment

Mothers are truly remarkable. Day in and day out they pour their hearts into caring for others. And while being a mom is one of the single most rewarding responsibilities in the world, it’s no secret that it’s tough work.

As a mom, it’s important to find the time to pause and take a moment for yourself. So this Mother’s Day, we’re doing something a little different. We’re not asking you to share photos of your littles or what you love most about motherhood, or even talk about your best mom hacks—in fact, we want you to put all of those thoughts aside.

Instead, we want to celebrate the quiet moments in between. Whether it’s the 30 minute drive into work each morning tuned into your favorite podcast, the weekly yoga class you look forward to, your monthly date night with the girls, or a relaxing bath just because, what does restoration look like for you?

We asked the moms of Tea to share what ‘me’ time looks like for them, and we’re inviting you to share your own inspiration.

Now through May 13th, share the ways you like to take a moment for yourself. Tag your ‘grams with #momentousmom for a chance to win a fabulous pampering prize pack.

Be Tween: A New Exclusive Collection for Your Growing-Up Girl

Tea Tween Collection

In 2002, Emily Meyer and Leigh Rawdon embarked on an adventure to bring to the world a different kind of children’s clothing—clothing that has meaning woven into its very fibers, that inspires curiosity and connection in even the littlest of wearers. Thus Tea was born, with three pima cotton baby sweaters. Since then, Tea has grown its collection to include hundreds of globally inspired styles for little citizens sizes 0-12. But boy, do they grow fast. As moms and dads, we know it, and you’ve said it. Like you, we want nothing more than her to keep growing with Tea… and now she can, all the way up to size 16! This year, we’re expanding our collection one step further, with exclusive new styles designed for your growing-up girl.
