Mother’s Day can be a bunch of hoopla, or simple and small…but will it be the best?! I sure hope its awesome.
Let’s make it awesome, I have 10 ways to make your DAY or your MOMS DAY amazing!
#1 – Be CLEAR! SHARE your WISH LIST.
Yep write down that wish list & share with the family, share with the hubby, share with the KIDS! Your list can be simple…”Mom wants a clean kitchen” or “CHOCOLATE!” It’s important that what you want is shared with those you love. WHY? Because if you have an expectation, you need to share that. Maybe that is why a previous day hasn’t been as awesome as you thought it could be. Make your expectations known, or take your expectations down a bit. Either way, SHARE your wish list!
#2 – TREAT Yo’ SELF!
Its your time. Treat yo’self to a treat, a new pair of shoes, a cookie, or a drive alone. When you think you may not get what you want on your wish list….treat yo’self to what you really want.
So we have been selfish enough, and those mements will make you smile, but the ones that will make you remember this as the best MOther’s day ever…are the unselfish one! Starting with a PHOTOSHOOT!
Your kids want to see YOU in photos! We all know that you take the pics, you post hte pics, you are hardly ever in the PICS…so stop what you are doing and make another child take a pic of you with one of your other kids. Then trade it up, have every take a turn taking pictures. Yes they will turn out bad, but some will be good. You’ll have a laugh, you’ll have a memory and next year you’ll hire a professional. That’s ok. HAHAAH just kidding, each year will get better. But the kids will love looking back on you with them in a special one on one photo shoot!
#9 Walk down memory lane
The kids love seeing themselves as younger versions, babies and even just last year. BUT the birth videos are so special, the whole family will enjoy this! Go and spend time walking down memory lane & enjoy reliving those special times. Make this a tradition, or make it part of your WISH LIST! You’ll love it just as much as the kids will!
#10 Thank YOU’s
Yep time to write thank you cards…yes of course to your mom and other influential women in your life. BUT really its time to write thank you cards to your kids. They need to hear you love being a mom, that you love being their mom, they need to feel special. And spreading that love and joy to others will bring you joy and love. Nothing fills the heart more than showing gratitude. Tell them why you are so thankful to be their mom, why you love them RIGHT NOW, tell them. They will cherish these notes for a long time.
And you will end up having the BEST Mother’s Day ever! Because you deserve it!
