YMC and Playtex Mommyville.ca Writing Contest Winners

YMC teamed up with Playtex Mommyville.ca to celebrate the wild ride of motherhood. We asked moms to submit a story describing “What Surprised You Most About Motherhood.” 

 
These tales made our judges laugh, cry, and nod heads in agreement, but finally narrowed it down to these winning submissions. 
 
Take a moment from your busy day to read this stories that celebrate and reflect on what it means to be a mom.
