With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend I’ve seen a lot of style bloggers post “Mother’s Day gift ideas” …. though I consider myself somewhat in the category of style blogger… Who are these ideas for? Do they make these posts for their own husbands? Maybe they think they are ideas for MY mom? Or I know, they want me to “share” it on my Facebook feed in hopes my hubby will stumble upon it and take a gander… Ya HIGHLY unlikely. Ok so the ideas are for MY mom, I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure my mom, also known as grandma, isn’t wanting a designer blouse, fragrance or makeup from me. She just wants to be remembered and told “I love you” and “thanks for being my mom”.
I’m just here to say though all those ideas are great it’s not inspiring my husband or my kids to get me any of those things. I’ll just be getting whatever craft or art project made out of macaroni that my kids made at school and if I’m lucky my husband will have the day off.
However, Mother’s Day is not a day that I expect gifts to unwrap, that’s for Birthday’s and maybe even Christmas if we have enough money after splurging on the kids.
For Mother’s Day, all I want are those super corny crafts my kids made, and maybe a couple hours by myself to sleep, get a much needed pedicure or go shopping solo. Then the rest of the day is just to spend with the people that made me a mom. Now in saying that, I just want to spend the day cuddling and loving on them and I want someone else to cook, clean, help find toys, pour the apple juice, change the dirty diaper and dare I say it…. make the decisions, YES! Let someone else for once decided how to spend the day or where to eat if that was the decision made. I mean come on we all see the memes out there making fun of us women because we can’t make a decision. So just do it for me, ok? 😉
Now I DID make this blog post for my hubby to read and take from because like all the couples handbooks say don’t make your man guess what you want or how your feeling, he’s a man and won’t figure it out, so just tell him, you will both benefit in the end.
Love you sweetie! 🙂
And Happy Mother’s Day to all you mamas out there!
