Mother’s Day is always such a fun reminder of all the memories I have made with my kids. It also helps me reflect on how far I have come as a mom of four. As with every other holiday, Mother’s Day is commercialized and my kids get the itch to want to buy me something fancy. Let’s be real though….I don’t want something fancy! I want something heartfelt and meaningful. Here’s what moms really want for Mother’s Day.
Love and Cuddles
I want to be able to sit on the couch and have all my kids gather around to sit, talk and cuddle with me. Being able to chat about school, friends, and what my kids’ thoughts and dreams are is so wonderful. Getting some extra hugs and kisses doesn’t hurt either!
A Picture of Mom and All the Kids….Smiling
No fuss! Let’s take a sweet photo with everyone looking at the camera and smiling. Posing children for a picture is never free from some finagling. Keep the crazy pictures too! And candids are always fun to keep around and make for some good future belly laughs. Gather everyone together and get dad to snap a picture that Mom can proudly post on social media for all the other moms to ooo and aaaahhh over. If you want to go one step further, you can even get that cute picture printed and put in a dollar store frame for that little hall table that is in desperate need of some decor.
This is one of my very favorite things to get! I love being able to have something that I can keep forever. That way I can look back see how much my kids have grown and changed over the years. I love seeing the creativity and thoughtfulness of my children. It is always a win for melting mom’s heart and having a special homemade box to put it in would be fun too! Bonus Points: Mom can pull these out when a hard day of momming comes along.
Show me that you’re thankful for all that I do each and every day for every single person in the family. Volunteer to do a job that Mom normally does that you are totally capable of doing. Do a load of dishes or pick up the living area without being asked. Step in and help out. It means a lot!
