Easy Ways to Celebrate You (And Other Moms)

Posted by   + Show Post

May 13. Mother's Day. The day we celebrate moms. All moms and those ladies (and some men) who do that mommy-thing for us. It is a mere six days away. What do you have planned? What do you want to do? What do you want to do for all of those other moms in your life (yes, that includes your mother-in-law and the mama kitty in your pet family)?

These past few weeks, we've been chatting about fun ways to indulge and treat ourselves. Now, on Mother's Day, people around us may take a few of those hints to make your official treat day special. Need some more ideas to pass along to them? How about some of these super easy and mostly free ways to celebrate all things M-O-M.

-- Mama gets a day off. Really. Dad (or whomever) takes the kids for the day, feeds them, wipes the boogies and the tushees, cleans up, does the dishes...all of it. Grab a box of bon-bons (or what ever is yummy to you) and take the day off.

-- Mama sleeps in. Okay, if you can't quite take the whole day off, at least get a few extra hours of ZZZs.

-- Mama doesn't cook. This is a biggie for most moms I know. A break from the one thing we seem spend most hours doing: cooking. Order in or go out to eat. Many of us do this anyway on Mother's Day, but do it for the whole day, not just brunch. Order that delivery pizza for dinner.

-- Mama gets a memory book. This is a cute idea that the kids can help with too. Make a book with pictures (maybe the kids draw them) that feature favorite memories, big and small.

-- Mama gets a massage. Send Mom off to the spa. Have a trained professional work those knots out that neck of hers, maybe have her sit in a fluffy robe and have her nail done...whatever you think will make her feel special.

Will you do any of these on Mother's Day?
