My Motherhood Marks

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I was paid for this post and received the included jewelry as compensation.

When moms describe pregnancy- and birth-related scars and marks, most people probably think of the most common stretch marks and C-section scar. While I (proudly) bear some stretch marks and have a C-section scar, I also have other marks that many probably do not know are attributable to my pregnancies.

During my first pregnancy, I looked into the mirror one day at work and realized I had more beauty marks on my face than I remembered. Upon further look, not only were they on both cheeks but they were on my neck, too. It sort of took me by surprise. I had expected the body changes and weight gain in my face, but not once did I ever think about an increase in beauty marks.


I remember one of the first times my toddler realized I had them on my face. “What is that?,” he asked. “They’re marks from when I was pregnant with you and your brother.” In case you are wondering, I am not self-conscious about my beauty marks —I mean, why should I be? Along with my C-section scar, stretch marks and saggy skin, they’re a badge of honor. They’re another reminder of the strength of by body and of the gifts it gave me—motherhood and my babies.

With Mother's Day coming up, it's time to think of the special mom(s) in your life and what to gift. When I think of my mom, I think of jewelry. Fortunately, Kohl's offers an extensive selection of fine jewelry for great prices. These Sterling Silver Frame Stud Earrings made with Swarovski Zirconia are beautiful and would make a great gift. I actually think they complement my beauty marks rather well. 

If you shop between April 11 and April 20, you can get 55-60% off fine jewelry in select styles; if you shop between April 24 and April 28, you can get 70-75% off. You can also use Kohl's cash. 

Happy Shopping!
