There are countless holidays, large and small, throughout the course of the calendar year, and although there are the big ones like Thanksgiving, New Year's, and Fourth of July that will make their arguments, perhaps no holiday is more important than this Sunday, Mother's Day. Firstly, and obviously, this holiday is huge because we, believe it or not, celebrate our moms, grandmoms, or any other maternal figures in our lives, who we know would do anything for their children and their families. We really cannot thank them enough for everything they have done and will do for us. We love you. Secondly, if your family is anything like mine, if you don't do Mother's Day right you may be in immediate and real danger. So with our love for (and fear of) the amazing mothers, grandmothers, and any other amazing women in our lives, here's a list of cool things to do on Mother's Day to show your appreciation and gratitude while also keeping you safe for at least another 12 months.
1) Breakfast in Bed
Ol' Reliable. As cliche as this one may seem, its a pretty awesome way to start the day, and its definitely one that mom will appreciate. There's a reason popularized ideas like this one exist. Its because it works. Only way this isn't a great start to a great day is if you absolutely destroy the food. Just swallow your pride, look up cooking videos on the internet, you're gonna be fine.
2) Take her to a movie
or the theater or a baseball game or anything else you know she will enjoy and appreciate. This one is pretty open ended as no two moms are alike, but you get the general idea I think.
3) Schedule a Massage or Spa Day for her
"I just want to spend time with the family today, nothing special." The classic mom line for birthdays and Mother's day, but don't be fooled. As much as you love your mom and she loves you, every mom needs a little bit of time to herself now and again, so maybe give her some relaxing alone time by setting up an appointment. Obviously, every mom really does want to be with the family on this day, so make sure to hustle her out of her relaxing massage hour afterwards and bring her back into the craziness of your family.
Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms, Grandmoms, Aunts and other loving, caring, and extraordinary women in all of our lives. We really, really could not survive without you. Thank you so much for everything you do. We love you.
