Is This How to Really 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.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, obviously things are a bit complicated this year, but it seems you can still knock it out of the park mama.
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."
Just being off the clock at home sometimes doesn't work out. It's kind of like working from home. Moms will always do what needs to be done no matter how much you plead for them not to. You can't really get them out of the house this year because, well there's not really anywhere they could go. But, you got this.
