Mother’s Day is exciting, especially for first time moms. So getting her a gift that she really wants is hard and expensive! Actually…not really.
Here are some things that mom really wants for Mother’s Day.
1. Sleep In
Yep, there is a chance that your wife hasn’t slept-in in a long time. Getting up and taking charge with the kids is glorious to a mom. Try to do it before they wake her up so there is no interruption in her sleep. You will probably notice a difference in your well rested wife.
2. Make her Mother’s Day Breakfast – or any meal
If your wife is like me, she makes alot of meals. It would really be nice for the day to sit back and let someone else do that. Doesn’t have to be anything crazy. Omelette, toast, cereal, coffee, whatever! Just do it!
3. Surprise her with a thoughtful card
Bonus points if you do something homemade with the kids. Mom’s at times can feel insecure about if they are a good mom. Make sure she knows how much you appreciate her and how she is doing a great job. This will go far.
4. Show her you listen
Has she been talking about trying out a new restaurant, buy that new book series? If so jump on this, show her you listened and take her there or get her that first book.
5. Let her relax
If you have little babies, try to be the first one to get one when they need attention, change their diaper;s and feed them. If you wife is still home full time this is a normal demanding routine and someone stepping in and saying, I got this is like a gift from heaven. The trick is to get up and do it before she does though. A mom being home with the baby all day will not likely let the baby cry for too long, where you may think they may settle back down.
6. Plan a family activity
Make sure its something she likes to do and is up for doing first, but plan something! Go for a walk, a drive, a board game, anything that is bonding for the family. Make it fun and light hearted!
In the end, showing your significant other how much you admire them as a mother is what this is all about. Your gifts dont have to cost a thing, it is more your time, attention and appreciation that is important.
Enjoy your Mother’s Day and remember…This sets a precedent for Father’s Day 😉
