teach him now about Mother's Day.The night before, together bake some muffins, put them in a small basket with some juice boxes &maybe tuck in a flower.when you wake up in the morning , have him get the basket& bring you breakfast in bed. I know this is a lot of work on your end but trust me, it pays off. By the time my son was 6 he was able to make me simple breakfasts of cereal, muffins or a pre bought pastry that he would pick out and not show me, lol.by 12 he was making me eggs & fresh fruit cups, at 16 he made me homemade eclairs (yes, he wants to be a chef now) but the point is to let him feel that he is making you feel special, he just needs some help right now.. good luck and Happy Mother's Day to you.my son was just 4(his bday May 3) for our first Mother's Day alone, since he and his dad had always brought me breakfast in bed, he knew to, he brought me a pop tart and a diet coke cuz thats all he could do alone! sweet!
