Morning Coffee: Happy Mother's Day!

I wish all of you moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day! And my heart goes out to those of you who are struggling on the path to motherhood - I still remember when Mother's Day was a sad time because motherhood was eluding me after two miscarriages. I know this day can be difficult, and wish you peace. As for me, I am just hoping the boys will behave today!

Because then, we could go to Baskin Robbins, where Facebook likers can get a printable coupon for Buy One, Get One Free Baskin Robbins cone.

Amazon is offering another great on individually packaged snacks - get 36 pouches in the Keebler Cookie & Cracker Assortment for just $9.76, or just $0.27 per pouch! From the packaging, it looks like there are graham crackers, cheese crackers, fudge stripe cookies, chips deluxe cookies, and animal crackers. That's a great price for something that makes school lunches and on-the-go snacks so easy. Note that there's a "may contain peanuts and tree nuts" warning if that's a concern. Disclosure: I'm an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

Check your email - I had a Mother's Day offer for 50 free prints from Shutterfly (must pay tax + shipping). It expires tomorrow, so a very limited time offer.

Keep an eye on your CVS store's sales cycle - there's a report that some stores may be ending sales early before the end of business on Saturday.

Stretching a Buck has this week's Target match ups.

Facebook likers of Kikkoman's Kitchen can get a printable coupon for $1/1 Kikkoman product.

Earlier this week, the LA Times published a recipe for Chiffon Cake - I'm excited about this because we often had it for family birthdays when I was growing up, but always from a bakery and I've never had one that was homemade.

San Diego Saves reports that you can get a $5 credit to a new local NBC daily deal web site. I wonder if the LA NBC affiliate will start something similar.

Life as Mom has some great suggestions for us moms, especially those of us who are in the thick of raising our children.

    Thank you so much for your opening comment! Most people forget that there are SO MANY of us out there struggling to be a mom, and are hoping to one day be the center of the day's attention :)
