It was very important to me that Husband pull through on this... and I pretty much reminded him once a week, like the annoying pregnant mammoth that I was...
"Push present.. feed me.. rub my back... push present."
I was probably super fun to be around.
Husband is a good guy so he more or less put up with my antics, but when faced with the push present pressure he always had the same response... "Ok...But what do I get for you?"
In the end... my Sister-in-Law helped him decide to get me this:
This, is my Kindle... which has been dead since a week after he gave it to me in 2009.
Now, a Kindle is a wonderful gift and my Husband is so sweet for trying, but really, neither one of us (or my Sister in Law for that matter) had any idea that after you have kids, "pleasure," reading comes in the form of picture books at bedtime.
Gone are the days when I had time to sit and read a book all by myself.
All that to say, last week I was contacted by the Loch Ness Monster of Men.
I had heard about this particular breed of man, but never really believed in their existence.
Until I spoke to Eric... the President of Juno Lucina, the only luxury jewelry brand that focuses solely on Push Presents for new mothers.
(I know... why didn't you think of that right??)
He asked if I would be interested in reviewing and giving away a diamond necklace.
I'm like... uh....
Does a bear shit in the woods?
Does Dolly Parton sleep on her back?
Does cookie dough count as a meal?
Eric's story was similar to my own, except when he couldn't decide what to buy, he didn't go for the Kindle.
Instead, he founded a company whose sole purpose is to give Mother's something special, meaningful, and unique... to help them remember the day that they became a Mom.
All this just to make his wife happy... see, told you... he's the Loch Ness Monster Man.
It gets better, (or worse, if you are comparing him to your Husband)...
Eric went on to tell me that he decided to name his brand, "Juno Lucina," after the Roman Goddess of Childbirth, who is believed to protect mothers and babies during pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond.
The pendant symbol is meant to portray Juno Lucina's hands cradling the heads of both mother and child; safeguarding them for the journey that lies ahead.
A push present with actual real honest to goodness symbolic meaning!
Who knew such a thing existed??
The more Eric talked, the more excited I got about the concept behind Juno Lucina: To spoil well deserving women on one of the most important days of their lives.
Who doesn't love that?
Plus, since it's a company created by a Dad, you know he's lookin' out for his boys when he throws in free 2 day shipping anywhere in the US...
He's all: "You forgot to buy the push present? No worries Ma Dude... I got you."
Plus it's online only...
So if your baby surprises you and pops out at 37 weeks, your Husband can shop online while he watches you and your bambino snooze it up in the Hospital.
Andplusalso... even opening the piece made me feel special:
It was like opening a brand new Coach bag or something, (an experience every Girl needs to have).
