Mother’s Day is quickly approaching (do you hear that kids?) so I thought that it would be the perfect time to talk about 6 of the craziest things Moms want for Mother’s Day.
Why am I picking the craziest things?
Well because honestly getting a full night of sleep or finding time to read a book just sounds crazy to me these days.
Since my special list of 6 so-called crazy things that us Moms may be wishing for on Mother’s Day are not even materialistic, that should help make “shopping” for Mother’s Day super easy.
People sometimes refer to Moms as Mombies, which should give you an idea of just how much sleep we tend to miss out on. Concealer quickly became one of my must have daily beauty items after having children, just so that I could hide how truly tired I am most days.
2. Meals made for us
Keep it simple by bringing me a coffee and a croissant and this Mom will be one happy girl. Mom definitely deserves a break from planning, prepping, cooking and cleaning up in the kitchen on Mother’s Day. On Mother’s Day we want to forget that the kitchen even exists, except to grab the champagne to top off our Mimosa.
3. Quiet time
I feel like as a Mom, and for any parent or caregiver, quiet time is so very precious and fleeting. On Mother’s Day I would much rather have an hour (or more) to sit alone and read a book, nap, or drink a cup of coffee in peace, than any store-bought gift.
4. A day of zero cleaning
Now I am not saying that I do all of the cleaning around my home, as my husband Keith helps and so do my kids (rarely), but I definitely take on a large portion of the housework. On Mother’s Day we do not want to wash or fold one piece of laundry, vacuum or wipe down anything. We also definitely do not want to clean anything bathroom related.
5. A day of not having to drive anyone anywhere (unless I am driving myself somewhere).
Again, my husband Keith does his fair share of carting the kids around, but on Mother’s Day I do not want to spend my day driving my kids to and from their various sporting events, birthday parties, playing with friends, zoo trips, playgrounds, the moon, or wherever else they can dream up for me to shuttle them to.
6. A nice, long, peaceful, hot shower. Did I mention peaceful?
On Mother’s Day I want to be able to take a shower that is so warm, relaxing and quiet that I almost for a split second forget where I am and feel as though I have been transported to a spa.
This list may not seem like a lot, but giving even one of these thing to a Mom or a mother like figure in your life would probably mean so much, maybe even more so than a fabulous pair of Tieks!
