Celebrating My Mom with Dove

We asked 20 Canadian writers to share who they would nominate for the Dove Celebrate Mom Contest. Here's who Sandy Pedrogao, Editor of Oh Baby! Magazine, would nominate.

I was asked to participate in the YummyMummyClub.ca‘s promotion of the Dove Celebrate Mom Contest and looked around for inspiration. I really couldn’t come up with anyone or anything that really did it for me. Even though I am surrounded by wonderful, beautiful and strong women, I was looking to highlight someone really special because I feel that I really should support Dove and their celebration of real and inspiring moms. Don’t get me wrong, I agree with the purple dinosaur in that we are all special, but I wanted to nominate somebody who really goes above and beyond. All the  ideas that I have about real role models, personal strength and inspiration to live my life to its fullest, the best way possible, always lead back to the same mom: My own.
