What do I want for Mother’s Day0
I want flowers and breakfast in bed. I want to sleep in. I want to take a bike ride with my family. But most of all, I want 24-hours of peace with everyone getting along and no arguing.
Moms, have you let your family know what you would like to do – or not do? Many of us have the ideal day planned out in our heads, but if you don’t let someone know, you might feel a bit frustrated on May 12th!
My husband often leaves the planning of Mother’s Day until the day before. I think he hopes our children will take over and plan something and as he loves to tell me, I am not his mother so really shouldn’t our daughters be planning something? So yesterday, I decided to give him a not so subtle hint and I called him and told him that I would like to go to brunch this year and that he might want to make reservations this week and I would not mind a facial if he was in need of a gift idea. I know this ruins the element of surprise but it also takes care of the feeling of disappointment when nothing is planned.
Celebrating Moms, Step-Moms, Foster-Moms, Grandmothers, Aunts… we all have someone in our lives who fills that role as nurturer and listener. Even as an adult with my own children, I still call my mom when I am sick and want sympathy. How will you be celebrating the “mom-figure” in your life?
