Is This How to Genuinely Make Mom Happy for Mother’s Day?
Every year for Mother's Day, we all stress out trying to figure out what to do to make sure the moms in our lives know how much we appreciate them. We do this because it matters. Turns out, we might be going about this the wrong way.
So, what can you do for the moms in your life that will make them honestly, genuinely happy? Turns out it doesn't cost you a thing...
Scarymommy.com says what a mom wants for Mother's Day is to not have to be a mom.
That's right. They spend the entire year being a mom. To have one day off the clock is worth more than anything you could possibly buy.
From scarymommy.com -
"You know what we do want? Sleep. So much sleep. Uninterrupted sleep. And a nap. Maybe two naps. And no cooking. No dishes. No laundry. No breaking up fights. No refilling milk cups. No changing diapers. No getting up with the kids in the middle of the night. We are out."
Now, here's where some possible gift-giving could come in handy.
Just being off the clock at home sometimes doesn't work out. It's kind of like working from home. There are plenty of distractions and "Oh I'm here so just let me do this real quick" moments.
To try and make sure mom gets the most out of her day of "Un-Moming", get her some things like a movie gift card, nail salon certificate, maybe even a bar tab so and an Uber so she can go hang out with her friends she never gets to see. A gift card to a department store like Target would be good as well. Mom can go and just walk the entire store as long as she wants!
