07 May: Motherhood takes on new meaning for this sales manager

Elizabeth Biederman used to worry about becoming a mom. How would she balance her job and a baby? Could she do both?

Now, with a 2-year-old at home and a sales manager role at a Best Buy in Dover, Delaware, she no longer worries about it.

“Best Buy has been a great place to work as a mom,” she said.

Elizabeth has left work early to take her son, Zachary, to see the Easter Bunny and been late because of potty training.

10 May: Mother’s Day blessings, thanks to Best Buy benefit

When Kate Hobbins was a little girl and people asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, she’d tell them, “I want to be a regular mom.”

She laughs about it now — and this Mother’s Day, she’ll laugh even harder with 4-year-old daughter, Emilia, and 4-month-old son, Robert, in her arms. That’s because this year, with some help from Best Buy’s newly enhanced adoption-assistance program, she’s finally that “regular mom” she almost didn’t get to be.

“Sometimes I’ll text my husband that I just can’t believe that I can add the ‘s’ at the end of kid,” Kate said.

Our moms are the ultimate cheerleaders and marathon racers. They hike lawn chairs to sports meets, steer valuable cargo against parade crowds and juggle after-school equipment three times their weight. Portable chargers like the Anker PowerCore 20,000 mAh are a great way for any busy mom who’s on the go for long periods of time to stay fully charged — and fully connected — amid a packed agenda.

25 Apr: What Does Mom Really Want for Mother’s Day? Best Buy Asked

Mom wears many hats. She cheerleads. She organizes. She comforts. She teaches … and so much more. She’s the glue that helps keep the family and household connected and running smoothly.

That’s why we celebrate her every year on Mother’s Day (May 8, this year). Sometimes it can be hard to find the gift that expresses your gratitude for everything she does for you. Did she really like that coffee mug last year?

Best Buy recently conducted a national study to better understand what moms really want on Mother’s Day, especially when it comes to technology.
