The idea of MyBabyTales came from my mother-in-law. I was pregnant with our son Tommy, and I was reading Agatha’s journal when MyBabyTales was born. She had been religiously writing in her diary when there was a break for a few months. Her next entry recorded, “I wanted to write more, but I’m having too much fun with the baby.”

I knew I’d feel the same way but my mother-in-law, Agatha Chipley Hughes who died in 1999, three years before I met my husband, didn’t have a phone with a handset or a cell phone. She would have loved using hers to record my husband’s childhood while making amazing meals, playing with him, and creating magnificent ceramics.

She would have intimidated me I know but even she had to wrestle with what every Mom does, how to enjoy the present and try to record it. We hope we’ve helped you with this.

Like many Moms, I’ve been many things, a student, a worker, even an Air Force officer, and I think this makes all of us better Moms.

We are donating a portion of our proceeds to those amazing Moms who are supporting their families while their husbands are protecting us overseas. And to those Moms who are fighting there too.

May we all be safe tonight.
