Best Mom Under the Big Sky - Entry deadline is May 7, 2016

April 21, 2016

Posted By: Shaunescy

You’ve seen her. Hiking the M with a baby in her backpack while cheering on the weary toddler by her side. Patiently and gently, but firmly, removing her tantruming 2-year-old from the candy aisle at Target. Using her brief lunch hour to bring lopsided homemade cupcakes to her child’s classroom party. Saying NO to her teenager when saying YES would be so much easier because she knows that it’s the best thing for her child.

She is the mom you wish you could be every day (especially on your worst days) and that you want to hang out with when your mama reserves are running

dry and you need some inspiration. She’s the one who handles the job of motherhood heroically, without knowing it – and without making other moms feel bad.

Do you know anyone who fits this description? We bet you do – and we’re hoping that you’ll nominate her as the Best Mom Under the Big Sky. Why? Because she deserves it. And because if she’s chosen, she’ll get treated to some truly awesome prizes courtesy of Gallatin Valley Mall (GVM), Montana Parent and Lauren Brown Photography, including:

» $300 GVM shopping spree

» Macy’s makeup makeover

» Le Nails Manicure and Pedicure

» Xanterra Adventure Getaway to Yellowstone National Park including two nights of lodging, dinner, breakfast and activities

» Photo Shoot by Lauren Brown photography that will be featured in the June/ July issue of Montana Parent
