What does Mother’s Day mean to you? To be honest I don’t need a Hallmark card to make me feel special. I love looking after my children and a card or meal doesn’t make me feel any more or less loved (although I won’t say no if I’m offered a present!). Looking after children of any age can be as hard as it is rewarding. Sometimes the overflowing wash basket and uneaten meals literally make me cry. But most of the time my heart swells when I see the toddler learning a new word or his little sister walking across the room unaided.

Do you realise that the favourite Thomas tshirt you wash so your son can wear it the next day makes him really happy. Or the messy baking sessions which fill your child with confidence that lasts all day? Those little things we do everyday have a real impact on the whole family.

Take a look at this cute video called “the Mummy Effect”, which shows how the things mum do which seem quite ordinary are, in fact, quite the opposite to their children. To help celebrate the fact there is extraordinary potential in every moment (no matter how ordinary they seem) I’ve been given a goody bag filled with P&G beauty products to giveaway to one of my readers.

**Giveaway**

All you have to do for your chance to win the P&G beauty products is

1) leave me a comment below and tell me how many items are in the goody bag pictured above.

2) tell others about the giveaway using the Retweet button below or tweet this message: **I want to #win a goody bag of treats with @gingerbread_mum
**

**Don’t have twitter?** Subscribe to the gingerbread house via google reader (in the top left corner) or follow the gingerbread house page on Google – just leave me a comment and let me know.

**Small print:**

The prize consists of a goody consisting of Pantene Repair & Protect Normal – Thick Hair 400ml Conditioner, Pantene Repair & Protect Normal – Thick Hair 500ml Shampoo, Pantene 2min Deep Repair Masque 200ml Normal – Thick Hair, Max Factor Clump Defy Mascara, Olay Regenerist Night Recover Cream 50ml and Olay Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum 50ml. The giveaway ends March 17th at 8pm. The winner will be selected at random from all correct entries received and notified by email or their twitter handle. The prize is as stated: no cash alternatives are available, and will be fulfilled by the PR company. UK only.

The winner is Diane Carey
