I usually spend Mother’s Day surrounded by my family, because they are the main reason I observe the holiday in the first place. While some mothers like to relax and recharge without their brood on this special day, I prefer to be close to my sweeties, and my own mom, celebrating the toughest and most wonderful job in the world – motherhood! There are plenty of other days for “me” time.
When my family asks me what I want on Mother’s Day, I tell them to start with these basics. . .
Let’s be honest, moms can always use a little more sleep, so let us catch some extra Zs on Mother’s Day with a morning sleep-in, afternoon snooze in the hammock, or short nap on the couch in the evening. We’ll take it any way we can get it, even if it’s just “resting our eyes” like Dad always does!
A CLEAN HOUSE!
We don’t want to lift a finger on Mother’s Day. Yes, you heard right. No unloading of dishwashers, folding of clothing, or wiping up stray crumbs for us, please. We want a day completely free of cleaning.
