25 Ways To Show Mom Gratitude For Helping Raise Her Grandchildren

With news outlets reporting that Kris Jenner has been instrumental in helping her daughter Khloe Kardashian adjust to motherhood and with Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s a good day time to think about ways to thank moms for being great grandmamas!

If you’re fortunate enough to live close to your mother, there’s a good chance that she’s looked after your own children a time or two. Watching your children for an extended period, like over the cry of “Thanks!” as you pack everyone into the car.

Here are 25 unexpected ways you can thank your mom for looking after your children after the years she spent raising you.

  1. Surprise House Cleaning – Your mom not only watches your kids, but also spent a significant chunk of her life cleaning up after you. Say thank you by springing a surprise house-cleaning on her sometime!
  2. Flowers – Whether you buy a bouquet of her favorite blooms or present a hand-picked bunch, there’s something about a gift of flowers that shows gratitude and appreciation beautifully.
  3. Homemade Cards – Get the kids together and create a handmade card to present to Grandma as a token of your collective appreciation. It’s sure to end up proudly displayed on the refrigerator.
  4. Store-Bought Greeting Cards – Sometimes a spontaneous gift is best. Snagging a “Thinking of You” card that’s not occasion-specific while you’re at the market and inscribing a message that expresses your thanks lets your mom know that you’re thinking of her and that you’re appreciative of the things she does to help you.
  5. A Special Meal – Who knows your mom’s favorite meal better than you do? Preparing her favorite dish is a great way to say thank you, especially if you modify it to meet dietary needs that are changing with age.
  6. Offer a “Free Favor” – Present your mom with a card promising one free favor, to be called in at any time in exchange for watching the kids. When you hand it over, explain that it’s a show of gratitude, and that her help makes a difference in your life.
  7. Pick Up the Tab – Your mom has been buying you dinner for decades. If you want to thank her for all the time she spends watching your children, consider taking her out to a nice place and picking up the tab.
  8. Give Her the Title of “World’s Best Grandma” – It may be a cheesy coffee mug or a hokey baseball cap, but a bit of merchandise emblazoned with your mom’s title of “World’s Best Grandma” lets everyone know just where she stands.
  9. A Meaningful Gift – There are always things that people want, but can’t justify purchasing for themselves. Listen to your mom when she talks and glean bits of information from what she says to find the perfect thank-you gift.
  10. Handle an Unpleasant Task – Whether it’s clearing a stubborn clog or cleaning the toilet, there’s always some distasteful task that needs to be completed around the house. Taking care of one such task for your mom is a practical and considerate way of thanking her for the things she does.
  11. Give Her the Gift of Quality Time – The frenetic pace of today’s world can leave you spending no more time with your mom than it takes to drop off and pick up the kids. Even if it’s just a cup of coffee before work, carve out some quality time to spend with your mom to thank her.
  12. Baked Goods – Cupcakes, cookies and other baked goods are always a welcome gift, and a great way to show your appreciation for someone you love.
  13. Video Thank You Notes – Get the family together and create a video thank you note for Grandma. Encourage little ones to sing a song or do a dance, and address the things she does that you appreciate directly.
  14. A Scrapbook – There’s nothing quite as powerful as a scrapbook filled with precious mementos and photographs. It may be a time-consuming task, but compiling a scrapbook full of memories for your mom is a great way to show that you care.
  15. Arts and Crafts Projects – Handmade gifts can be more personal and heartfelt than the store-bought variety, so consider making a few things to give to your mother in appreciation.
  16. A Handwritten Letter – Today’s high-tech world relies on emails and text messages to communicate, and the art of the handwritten letter seems to be dying. Put pen to paper and share your appreciation in a way your mom can save for posterity.
  17. Sweet Surprises – Show up to collect your kids with your mother’s favorite candy or other sweet treat. Even though it’s a simple gift, it shows your appreciation.
  18. Gift Cards – Picking up a gift card to your mother’s favorite store or restaurant is a great way to show your thanks, especially if you tuck it inside a card or letter.
  19. Poetry – If you have a flair for words, why not pen a quick poem? Whether it’s sentimental enough to be a greeting card verse or a few silly rhymes designed to bring a smile to mom’s face, the effort will certainly be appreciated.
  20. Inscribed Plants – Moms with green thumbs will be thrilled with an inscribed plant, like Magic Bean in a Can. When the plant grows, a message of your thanks is actually inscribed upon the leaves. It doesn’t get much cooler than that!
  21. Banners and Signs – Surprise your mom with a large banner or sign expressing your thanks. For particularly special occasions, you may even want to integrate party whistles and hats.
  22. Subscription to a Favorite Magazine – Print magazines haven’t quite gone the way of the dinosaur, especially for the older set. Gifting your mom with a subscription to her favorite periodical as a token of your appreciation really is the gift that keeps on giving!
  23. Public Recognition – Few things show just how proud you are of your mother and how much you appreciate the time she spends with your kids like a public recognition of her efforts. Whether it’s a speech at a party or a post on her Facebook wall, let the world know you’re grateful to your mom!
  24. A Phone Call – If the hustle and bustle of each day’s demands leaves you only enough time to call your mother for drop-off and pick-up coordination, set aside a block of time to really talk. She knows just how busy you are, and it will mean the world.
  25. Group Hugs! – An enthusiastic group hug with choruses of thank yous is an exciting and affectionate way to show your gratitude to your mom for looking after your brood.

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Name Their Daughter, ‘True’

True Thompson is the newest Kardashian/Jenner baby.

Khloe Kardashian announced Monday that she and her estranged beau Tristan Thompson have chosen to name their first daughter together, True, going with a supremely unique and celebrity-ish name.

“Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE,” she wrote on social media. “Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”

With cousins named North, West, Saint, Stormi, Dream and Reign, what would one expect? I like True! It has much character, to me.

According to insiders, Khloe is focusing on being mom and less on any controversy or personal turmoil between herself and Tristan.

“Khloe is mesmerized and completely in love with the baby,” a source told E! News. “That’s all she’s thinking about is caring for the baby and being positive.”

Things are still up in the air regarding her personal relationship with True’s dad.

“She hasn’t made any decisions on what she’s going to do regarding Tristan,” the insider explained. “She is overcome with emotion and can’t think about anything other than the baby right now.”

Mom Kris Jenner is in Cleveland helping her daughter out with the first weeks. Kris was also there to help Khloe labor.

“Everyone is focused on helping Khloe and staying positive at this time,” a source previously said. “They want her to be comfortable and not stressed at all. They are focusing on the baby and crying a lot of happy tears at the moment.”

Kylie Jenner Hired a Nanny and Is Back to Sexy Selfies

Valentine’s Day 2018 is extra special for Kylie Jenner; She is celebrating the holiday of love with her littlest love

Two weeks ago, the 20-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians and social media star gave birth to a daughter, Stormi Webster, her and Travis Scott‘s first child. She announced the news on Instagram, marking her first confirmation that she had been pregnant, following multiple reports over the past few months. Kylie had also kept out of the spotlight during the later stages of her pregnancy. She has since resumed posting more regularly on social media and on Wednesday, Valentine’s Day, shared a mirror selfie of herself posing on the floor in a black sweatshirt and matching shorts and stiletto boots.

A post shared by Kylie ✨ (@kyliejenner) on

Kylie is “happy she can slowly emerge into the public again,” a source told E! News exclusively, saying, “Kylie is in a really good place right now, and is loving being a mom.”

“Her relationship with Travis has made huge strides since having baby Stormi, and they are back in a good place,” the source said. “Travis has been staying overnight at Kylie’s several times a week when he is not working or out of town and has also been giving Kylie her time to bond with the baby alone. Kylie is like a new person now; every move and every decision she makes, she takes Stormi into consideration. She is obsessed with her baby and the focus is all on Stormi.”

The source also said that she has had a lot of help with the baby from mom Kris Jenner and BFF Jordyn Woods and that “recently, Kylie hired a nurse/nanny to help her, which she didn’t think she was going to do at first.”

“All of her sisters are constantly checking in with her and coming over to the house to visit Stormi,” the source added. “Kylie asks for advice all the time. She did prepare for the baby with several specialists and took private classes so she was well-prepared beforehand.”

Before Kylie revealed Stormi’s name, many people speculated that her name was inspired by butterflies.

“When Travis and Kylie started dating, Kylie became obsessed with Travis’ song “Butterfly Effect”, and butterflies became ‘their thing’ to describe their relationship that was blossoming into something beautiful,” the source said. “Storm is somewhat related to the butterfly effect and that’s why they decided on the name.”

As for Kylie and Travis’ relationship, they are in no rush to walk down the aisle.

“Kylie is not engaged, however that ring she has been wearing is from Travis,” the source said. “He gave it to her when she was first pregnant and it has several emerald-cut diamonds. They are in no rush to get married or even engaged, and Stormi is their only priority right now.”

The source also talked about Kylie’s post-pregnancy health regimen.

“Her sisters have tried to get her to workout with them but she has never been a fan of it,” the source said. “Since having Stormi, she is still not super focused on the baby weight, and knows that majority of the weight will come off naturally. She has been eating healthier but she isn’t very strict like her sisters.”

Meanwhile, Stormi has been showered with gifts. Kylie had showcased many of Stormi’s outfits and shoes in her nursery in a pregnancy and baby reveal video.

“Kylie thinks it’s so fun to dress her every morning, and loves organizing Stormi’s baby closet,” the source said. “She has received SO many gifts from friends and family members, and Stormi basically takes up a huge chunk of her house now.”

Inside Expecting Chrissy Teigen’s Pan Am Theme 32nd Birthday Party

Second-time mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen celebrated her 32nd Birthday at the Pan Am Experience in Pacoima, California.

The celebration took place aboard a Pan Am American World Airways 747 at the adult theme park. Guests included her husband John Legend, and their couple bffs Kim Kardashian-West and her husband Kanye West. Kim dressed in a Jackie Kennedy Onasis pale pink dress, white heels, dark shades and wore a buffant wig.

Teigen was outfitted in a salmon colored tweet 60s style suit and square handbag, quite fitting with the era theme.

Kim’s mom Kris Jenner attended as well in a black cape, neck scarf and carried vintage luggage.

The party attendees played Bingo and used bingo markers with Teigen’s face on it. She later got up doing a full in-flight demonstration while dangling a fake cigarette from her mouth.

Theme era parties are all the rage among adult celebs. Serena Williams held a 1950s baby shower and Southern Charm’s Cameran Eubanks had a 1960s-era Slim Aarons baby shower.

Caitlyn Jenner Confirms Kylie’s Pregnancy

Kylie Jenner‘s dad Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) has been the first person in the Kardashian/Jenner clan to confirm openly to the media that Kylie is indeed pregnant with her and 25-year old boyfriend, hip hop star Travis Scott‘s  baby.

Caityln’s rep told The Sun when asked how she found out about her daughter’s pregnancy: “All I can tell you is that it was some time ago.”

ok. ?

Kylie hasn’t confirmed that news in the media yet, as her mom Kris Jenner  told longtime family friend and executive producer of the Keeping Up with The Kardashian reality-Tv franchise Ryan Secrest when he pressed her  for confirmation.

Well there you have it! It’s always the dads! LOL!

Beyonce’s father Matthew Knowles confirmed that she was having twins before Bey and hubby Jay confirmed it themselves.

My thoughts on Kylie being pregnant is this: the girl is 20, yes a young age, but she has already achieved multi-millionaire status through her reality Tv show, clothing line with her  sister, Vogue model Kendall Jenner, and her wildly popular make up line, Kylie Cosmetics.

While ideally, and statistically, a baby born within wedlock of a healthy marriage has a better chance at a balanced life, it’s not common in Hollywood or even among general regular families these days.

So while Kylie may be young to start a family, she has more than enough means and support to provide for any child.

She’s a multi-millionaire with several homes  and her baby will have plenty of ready-made playmates in the form of cousins.

Kylie’s big sister Kim Kardashian- West and husband Kanye West are currently awaiting the arrival of their third child. The baby – a girl – is being carried by surrogate and is due in January.

The new Scott-Jenner baby will have the Kardashian-West kids, 4-year old North and 2-year old Saint and the Disicks, 7-year old Mason, 5-year old Penelope and 2-year old Reign, whose mom is Kourtney Kardashian and dad Scott Disick, 1o-months old old Dream Kardashian, Rob and Blac Chyna‘s daughter as cousins.

Look at Saint West Getting So BIG!

saint west

The world got more glimpses of Saint West this weekend when his mom Kim Kardashian shared snaps of the family at the opening of Saint’s grandma Mary Jo‘s new children’s clothing store Shannon & Co in La Jolla, California on Tuesday, July 26.

He is a cutie pie.

Kim also recently revealed that Saint is a daddy’s boy.

“He said Dada today, three times!” Kim told E! News at the MGM Grand nightclub Hakkasan in Las Vegas Friday night. “And I was like, ‘Wait what?’ Kanye was so excited, he was like, ‘I told him to say that.’ And I was like, just I really wanted him to say ‘Mama’ first.”

She later disclosed that their daughter North is a total mama’s girl so they “each have one.” Sweet. [editor’s note: babies babble and da da is easier to say and that is why it is usually a baby’s first word. To form an “m” is hard for babies.]

After the store opening the family headed to dinner at The Marine Room to celebrate MJ Campbell’s birthday.

Also in attendance at the dinner was Saint’s big 3-year old sister North an his auntie Kourtney’s three kids – sons 6-year old Mason, 1-year old Reign and 4-year-old daughter Penelope. Also at the event were the Disick kid’s dad, Scott, and glam ma Kris Jenner‘s boyfriend Corey Gamble.

Kim Kardashian covers Vogue same month her baby clothing line to launch (VIDEO)



Kim Kardashian finally landed on the cover of Vogue magazine. 
Who knows if it was the many attempts from momager Kris Jenner or her fiance Kanye West who declared on Ryan Secrest‘s KiisFM radio show last October that it was “ludicrous” that his reality TV star girl hadn’t been on the cover yet.  
But alas, she’s there now in the April 2014 edition of the iconic and exclusive elite fashion magazine, posing with West on the cover and with their daughter North inside.
And even though Kanye has dabbled much with couture fashion designing, Kim’s had her feet in the designer waters for a while with the Kardashian Kollection she and her sisters create for Sears.
Last month, Kim confirmed that the three are going to launch a line of their collection that will feature baby clothes. When a fan asked, on the MobioInsider app where fans query their favorite celebrities,  if she only dressed North, she replied with the news.

The Kardashian sisters will join a long line of celebrities that have baby clothes lines that include Nicole Richie, Gwen Stefani and Heidi Klum.

Check out the video Vogue released of the photo shoot below.
