Mother’s Day, Sunday May 14th is just a few days away and like most years the restaurants are already booked. So what do you do? You could have a meal at home… god help you if you make your mom cook it. You could have a nice brunch somewhere on Saturday. Or maybe book a restaurant the week before or after. Take it from a mother, we really don’t care as long as you do something special for us.
Lots of you are thinking, money is tough right now. I don’t think my credit card can take another hit. It really doesn’t have to. If you’re a young family with kids, fill the tub, put some candles out, and head out to the park for a couple of hours. (Yes, you need to take the kids to the park) For a young mom, this could be the best present in the world and it didn’t cost you a penny.
Another nice way to celebrate Mother’s Day together might be buy and plant some things in the backyard.
Breakfast in bed, playing a board game, cleaning the house, or maybe pay someone to come and clean it for her would be a wonderful treat.
Another fun way to celebrate Mother’s Day: Watch her favourite movie and make the popcorn. Hey Dad, maybe you could bath the kids and read them a story before bed.
Whatever you decide to do for Mother’s day, remember….. It doesn’t have to cost a lot when it comes from the heart.
Happy Mother’s Day!
