By Jackie Helton, the Music Mama
Well, it wouldn’t be a website birthday party without a little music, right? So this playlist is just for all the mamas out there as well as those women who are “like a mom” to people in their lives who really need one. Just in time for Mother’s Day, we hope you enjoy this list of old and new songs that celebrate moms. Keep these suggestions handy and visit your favorite online music store (like iTunes) to put this playlist on your iPod.
Special thanks to Lisa Mac of Lisa Mac Photography who let us use some of her sweet photos of moms and kids to dress up our playlist. For more info on Lisa’s photography, click the photos to visit her website.
